For well-over-a-century, the Swiss Army knife has been touted the world over for its immense utility, durable design, and affordable price. The pioneering pocket tool was initially developed to satisfy military needs (and Swiss government contracts), though its versatility and proven design also allow it to wonderfully lend itself to EDC applications. And with a low-profile 0.7” width and a suite of 7 functions, Victorinox’s One Hand US Army Knife is a fantastic piece of gear to have on hand.

Created shortly after the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency added a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife to the official approved order list for U.S. Armed Forces in 2017, this seven-item multitool packs an awl/reamer, a small screwdriver and can-opener combo, a Phillips head and punch tool, another large lockable screwdriver with an integrated wire stripper and bender, and a partially-serrated, liner-locking blade that can easily be deployed with one hand. Tipping the scales at 4.62oz (or 0.28lbs), the knife features grippy, non-slip, two-component OD green and black Zytel scales with U.S. Army branding, and each of its seven tools is adorned in a hardwearing black-anodized finish. Made in Switzerland, the Victorinox Swiss Army Knife One Hand U.S. Army multitool is available now for $70 through BladeHQ.
