Victorinox Swiss Army Cadet Knife
Sometimes it nice to get back to basics. A tried and true Swiss Army knife might just be the perfect knife you could carry. Of course as with any Swiss Army knife they are designed to last with stainless steel construction. The Cadet keeps it basic with a 2” blade, can opener, wire stripper, 3mm and 6mm screw drivers, nail file and of course a key ring. Part of the Alox connection.
