When I was younger, it was said that the worst tool associated with a Swiss Army knife was the tool who bought it in the first place !

Having thought the matter over more carefully, I think the wire stripper on the bottle opener blade is least useful. It may be the sole function that I've never used. If I worked with electrical wiring, I might feel differently.

I don't see why so many don't like the corkscrew. If you don't drink wine, just opt for a model that replaces the corkscrew with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

BTW, I just got the Victorinox Hunter model. Too heavy for a pants pocket , it goes very well in a belt pouch and Swiss Army Brands sells such pouches/sheaths. The knife also goes well in a coat pocket or a pack.

Oh: the corkscrew is no larger than that on the smaller models, like the Spartan or Tinker. The former German Army knife has a larger corkscrew, which works better. But even that smaller one usually suffices. It's an emergency tool, not meant for daily use. The same can be said of most of the blades on a SAK.

Note: the little deer head on the handle of the Hunter is a roe buck, called a rhebok in Germany. None of the video makers showing this model mentions that. They just refer to a deer head.

I'm with you on the blades. Virtually useless

I use the corkscrew more than anything else. I make my own wine and it comes in handy when some one forgets the corkscrew. I used to be a big beer drinker, but now only a wine sipper. Overall, my alcohol consumption went down 95% due to health reasons. The awl is least used. I like the modles with few tools and easy to carry in pocket.
