Customer Reviews

The best multitool I've ever owned - I carry it every day. My most consistently used item throughout the day - everyday. Whether it's the 'box cutter' tool, the blade, any of the screw drivers, etc..., this is just the handiest pocket tool I've ever owned. I work in an office, but in the evening, and all weekend, I'm outdoors as I live out in the country. This goes with me as a part of my everyday wardrobe. It's WAY thinner than my Letherman MUT - EOD given to me several years ago. I never really liked carrying the Leatherman, so just went back to my Swiss Army Champ. The reason I like this so well is: all the items LOCK into place - a feature not found on my SAK Champ. I've had this in very moist, to very dry to very cold conditions, and not so much as a speck of rust or a moment's issue with the tool. It came sharp out of the box, but after I got done with it, it's now razor sharp, lol! Great item, and the quality of the build is legendary Victorinox quality - what else can be said. Great product. :D 5Every day carry! I love this tool. I volunteer as a technical director for a community theater and also manage the scene shop. I bought this to have a knife and pliers in pocket when I'm building or installing sets or whatnot. I carry it everywhere, though because it is so useful. I even try to leave it in my pocket when I am at home. I carry it to my actual job as a college professor.I most often use the knife and scissors. I've had pocket knives with scissors before and they always were terrible: these scissors are well designed. The pliers are handy for the random small nail or staple I encounter all the time in our scene shop, or pulling out a staple from papers at work. The saw and file work really well too for light projects. A bottle opener is useful at a barbecue. There are so many times that it's handy to have that I can't remember them all here.I don't use the sheath. It's nice, I just prefer to keep it in my pocket. On some of my jeans it fits well in the small fifth pocket. I wasn't sure I'd like the smooth bright metal finish but it is beautiful and fits well in my hand.The only downside is that I can't instantly open the knife. It takes two hands and the sides of the tool feel identical in my hand, so I often open the scissors by mistake. To me, that is a very minor issue. I'm planning to file a groove on one side so I can open the knife by feel.Definitely worth the investment! 5Spirit X I received exactly what I ordered. The sticker victorinox put on the end of the box said "53814" and "ST SPIRIT X PT". A little research on Sakwiki showed "53814 US Model: - Spirit "X" Spear-point blade replaces serrated blade". It came with the very nice looking brown leather sheath in the box. I had done my homework reading lots of info on the different models and this is exactly the one I wanted. I was very slow getting onto the idea of a pliers based multitool, I'm a loyal Swiss Army Knife fan for 30 years and just didn't think I'd like them, besides they're expensive. I felt like I was cheating on my faithful companion Victorinox, when I picked up a Leatherman Wingman last year that was 1/2 price but quickly found that I liked the piers of it! The wingman sold me on the idea but the quality of it's other tools while useful, just didn't seen to be up to the quality of the tools on my Victorinox Champion Plus. So when I was able to catch this Victorinox Spirit X at a lower price I hit the order button! I am not disappointed at all!Pros;All the blades are opened from the outside.The pliers are solid, no side to side wobbly feel like on my Wingman.The knife blade came sharp, but a minute or to on my fine Arkansas stone and it will cleanly cut strips off the edge of a sheet of copying machine paper!The scissors are different from the ones on my knife, but Victorinox quality is obvious. They work perfectly!Cons;There ain't any, it's a Victorinox!So it's now in my edc bag. My wingman is going to my 72 hour emergency bug out bag. This old dog learned a new trick!Years ago a old man advised me "save your money and buy what you want". If you're wanting a multitool, this is the one to save for! 5Best multi tool around I used in past several multi tools like cheap Chinese, Gerber, Winchester, Letterman etc. best of all was Letterman. I never consider spending $90.00 for Victorinox. recently I lost my 20 years old Letterman, and swallow Victorinox price.best decision ever regarding multi tool. This tool is light Years better from anything else. This is galaxy far far away form Letterman and Gerber, not to mention cheap Chinese knock offs. From now on I am sold for anything Made in Switzerland. Well now I understand why people pay $10,000.00 for Rolex watch. 5Not your regular Multi Tool! Yes, it is more costly than many of the other multi-tools available on the broader market. I purchased two of these... One of these to present to my son on his first Career Job, and one for me so that when I pass, he can give mine to his son... or daughter. Yes, you read that correctly. To pass on, generation to generation... THAT is how well constructed these multitools are. The only negative for me is how the knife blade deploys makes it very difficult to sharpen with my knife sharpening system. So, I had sharpen. If you are wondering if this tool is worth the higher price, yes. If you appreciate quality and the feel of a tool... the utility of the tool, then yes, it is so worth it. 5Plusses far outweigh the negatives I haven t had my Spirit X very long but so far I m happy with it. I spent a lot of time looking for a tool with the right combination of blades. With Leatherman, SOG, Gerber, etc. to get what I wanted I also had to take blades I had no use for, which often meant the biggest and heaviest models. This one, though, is a good fit for me.To run the tool through its paces I ve found opportunities to use all of the blades and pliers and have not been unhappy with any of them. Sure, the scissors could open wider, so could the pliers, but I haven t found anything I thought I should be able to do, but couldn t.The best features:- All of the blades are accessible without having to open the tool.- All of the blades open easily. Maybe I ve just had bad luck, but it seems every pocket knife and multi-tool I ve owned always had at least one blade that was very difficult to open, especially when new. This includes my Swiss Army knives.- All of the blades lock when open. This is huge, what a great safety feature! And unlocking them is quick and easy.- Everything is tight; it feels solid no matter which tool you are using.Things I don t like as much:- The shiny, polished stainless sure is pretty but it s also slick, especially if your hands are sweaty. I would happily trade the gleaming finish for some texture.- Although the blades open smoothly, the tiny nail nicks could be a problem for some people, and they are impossible to use with gloves.- I would like at least the knife blade to have a one-handed opening slot.- It needs a real lanyard ring. It says in the instructions you can use the hole for the optional corkscrew to attach a lanyard, but that s not a good solution because it attaches on the side of the tool, not the end where it should.For me, the plusses far outweigh the negatives. I m very pleased with my purchase. 5Much better than other multitools I've had. A++ I have struggled with low quality multitools for years. I have tried Gerber and Leatherman, and have never been satisfied with the fit and finish or the quality of the steel. Most recently I bought a brand new Wave and the saw snapped off the very first time I used it. I must give Leatherman points for repairing the broken product free of charge, but it doesn't change the fact that it is a low quality product that I'm now scared to use. The Spirit seems to be better quality all around, and the fit and finish is 10X better than the others I have had. With its rounded edges, it is much more comfortable in the hand, and almost as comfortable in your pocket as a swiss army knife. Other multitools have lumps bumps and sharp edges and are less comfortable in the pocket. My Spirit came with a belt holster, with a velcro closure. I was concerned about the velcro not lasting as long as a snap, but it has lasted well so far. I find that I actually prefer the velcro as it is less likely to scratch or mark paint when occasionally brush up against a wall or a car.... but back to the tool: it is comfortable in the hand and pocket, the pliers are excellent, the knife seems to hold an edge better than most multitools and swiss army knives, and I LOVE the locking blade. Five stars from me. Nice job Victorinox. 5Old lady on a farm swears by this tool. I've had this tool for 6 years and use it almost daily. You'll laugh to hear all I use it for (and when I make sure I'm not carrying it). First off it's important to say that every tool included is useful, plus the tool handle is comfortable to hold for serious work. I've tried others including my son's Leatherman, but this one is the best by far. As my review title says, I'm old, and am a lot less sturdy than this tool. When I see something that needs doing when I'm outside, I do not want to have to go back into the house, barn or garage to retrieve the proper full sized tool if I can avoid it, and even in the house this tool has saved me countless steps. It remains easy to open and refold, the tools come out, lock in place, and tuck away perfectly, the knife holds its edge well, and all other included tools are still doing their jobs well.If I'm out stacking wood and find some vines in the way, the wire cutters cut most of them just as they cut wire for my fence and gardening work. I've used the saw to cut wayward branches and even small saplings. I've filed a broken fingernail as well as a metal burr. The little scissors cut a hangnail, paper, fabric, ribbon or tape to name a few uses. The multi-blade is my box cutter for opening delivered packages. The screwdrivers are all functional and the handle of the tool offers a sturdy grip for especially tight screws I'm trying to unfasten. The knife is strong and fills all the needs I've used it for and while it's stayed sharp well over time, I sharpened it when I did my kitchen knives and it's got a great edge. I wear sneakers around the farm and have elastic laces in them to make getting them on easier, but often the tongue gets scrunched down when I put them on. I use the pliers to pull it back out :). Works great. They are also good for loosening and tightening nuts as well as gripping other things.I wouldn't be without this thing in my pocket, but it's heavy, so when I go to the doctor where they always weigh me I have to remember to take it out before getting on the scale. And the airline people take a really dim view of the tool so I have to remember to put it in my carryon, and have even put it in my checked bag to avoid problems.Bottom line, this thing has saved the day multiple times as well as saving me many steps, whether I'm opening an Amazon box or taking apart my weed sprayer for repair, as I did yesterday. It's expensive but worth every cent. 5Maybe I got a lemon? Update:Changing review to from 1 start to 4 stars. I received a new swistool, X and it doesn't have the problems of the last one. I hope it loosens up a bit with use, but other then that I am very satisfied.------ Original Review --------Based on all the glowing reviews I can only assume that I received either a defective item or a counterfeit Chinese knockoff. Mine came out of the package discolored with all sorts of oils. The small flathead screwdriver stores itself so far below the other tools that the finger snick isn't visible or able to be used, which means in order to get access to it I have to open up other tools first. The small flathead was also completely soaked in some sort of light machine oil. On the other side of the handle, several of the middle tools catch and deploy together. I've already started the exchange process and will update my review once a replacement comes in. As it is, this tool is not up to the standard that I was expecting. 4Victorinox Spirit X For those seeking the short answer; I can t imagine anyone not liking this tool. Whether it is for yourself, a gift for a friend, or to hand out to employees who might be tasked with various small jobs requiring a variety of tool functions. It s beautiful, functional, durable, and priced competitively. To the specifics: Even though there are many reviews, I had some difficulty comparing size between this model and the straighter, full-sized model which is also available at about the same price. A lot of my confusion was due to misinformation provided in the specifications. Also, some of the photos posted are distorted in such a way as to mislead as to size and shape. For comparison s sake, I will describe this Swisstool as falling in between the size of the old, traditional Leatherman, and the Leatherman Super Tool. I consider it to be on the upper end of the size limit as to something that can be carried comfortably in a pocket, (without a case), which is what I wanted it for. Please see the photos for a better idea of what you can expect; When the pliers are open, this tool is very close to the length of the original Leatherman, but when closed, the difference in length and thickness is apparent. Features: Although the basics are the same in most models and brands, be careful in choosing if you are picky about certain features, as these can vary slightly from model to model. I picked this one because I wanted a file, regular knife blade, and scissors. For occasional use, (as opposed to Every Day Carry ), you really can t go wrong; just be sure of what you are getting, as I have witnessed some games being played with the photos attached to the descriptions here. Compared To Leatherman: I have EDC ed a Leatherman in various forms for 25 years, and I would still consider Leatherman to be the Gold Standard by which all others are judged. I do realize there are other brands, and I have had most of them. While many differences exist between the two, most come down to personal preference rather than quality. For example, I like the standard (small) Leatherman pliers better because of the finer shape of the nose, but the Swisstool pliers are also excellent. This Swisstool offers the ability to use the various tools without opening up the handles, and this might be an advantage for some. Also, the curved design of the Swisstool allows for better hand comfort when using the pliers, although I have never considered this to be an issue with my Leathermans. So overall, I have to take the middle ground as to which is better. I suppose the Swisstool gets points for sexiness, due to the absolutely perfect polished finish and graceful design, but I still love all of my Leatherman models, and they still turn heads when I deploy the tools and fix something in a fraction of the time it would take someone to walk to some location and grab a toolbag. Overall, the reason I ended up with the Swisstool instead of the Leatherman is due to the thickness, the size when closed, and the price to get (most) of the features I wanted. The Leatherman models I considered were either small and toy-like, or big, heavy and expensive; I have found that the thickness of the tool is the biggest issue with carrying in my front pocket without a case, rather than overall length. A model like the Leatherman Wave has more protruding edges that tend to catch and wear on pants and pockets. The Swisstool has smooth and rounded corners and is riveted with a round headed fastener that does not offer as much resistance in the pocket as the fastener heads on the Leathermans. Also, I really am not interested in anything that comes with a set of bits, which complicates carrying and increases the odds of losing something critical. Are you listening out there in Portland?? Pleasant Surprises: In addition to just overall quality, the feel and precision of the locking mechanism is very impressive. The sharpness and toughness of the tools may surpass that of my previous Leatherman models, and the small chisel is a bonus that I now realize will see much service in the future. Dislikes: not much. I really, really wanted a straight design with the measuring scale, but that is only available in a larger model. The scissors are a bit puny when compared to the larger model. And the knife blade on this particular Swisstool is kind of smallish and a less aggressive design than the Leathermans I have owned. I should also mention that I hate the stiffness and long, long break-in period on any of these tools. It is sometimes difficult to deploy certain tools if you are fingernail challenged . In summary, I offer this method to help you select the right tool; First decide on a strict price range, next overall size, then features you have to have. You might just end up with another brand- even the cheaper brands are decent quality for occasional use, so maybe you don't have to spend a bundle to get what you are after. The biggest weakness in the less expensive brands that I have witnessed personally relates to the quality and hardness of the steels, but this might not be a big issue for the occasional user or an item going into an emergency kit. This tends to show up as wear on things like the Phillips head and jaws of the pliers. It is surprising how many different brands and sizes there are floating around today, so you have to take into account how you plan to use it. I don t like any of the cases on either brand, and I don t believe that cases should be a factor when choosing because none of them will hold up as long as the tool, which very likely will last a lifetime, or until you lose it to the TSA. 5

The small flathead screwdriver stores itself so far below the other tools that the finger snick isn't visible or able to be used, which means in order to get access to it I have to open up other tools first. The small flathead was also completely soaked in some sort of light machine oil. On the other side of the handle, several of the middle tools catch and deploy together. I've already started the exchange process and will update my review once a replacement comes in. As it is, this tool is not up to the standard that I was expecting. 4Victorinox Spirit X For those seeking the short answer; I can t imagine anyone not liking this tool. Whether it is for yourself, a gift for a friend, or to hand out to employees who might be tasked with various small jobs requiring a variety of tool functions. It s beautiful, functional, durable, and priced competitively. To the specifics: Even though there are many reviews, I had some difficulty comparing size between this model and the straighter, full-sized model which is also available at about the same price. A lot of my confusion was due to misinformation provided in the specifications. Also, some of the photos posted are distorted in such a way as to mislead as to size and shape. For comparison s sake, I will describe this Swisstool as falling in between the size of the old, traditional Leatherman, and the Leatherman Super Tool. I consider it to be on the upper end of the size limit as to something that can be carried comfortably in a pocket, (without a case), which is what I wanted it for. Please see the photos for a better idea of what you can expect; When the pliers are open, this tool is very close to the length of the original Leatherman, but when closed, the difference in length and thickness is apparent. Features: Although the basics are the same in most models and brands, be careful in choosing if you are picky about certain features, as these can vary slightly from model to model. I picked this one because I wanted a file, regular knife blade, and scissors. For occasional use, (as opposed to Every Day Carry ), you really can t go wrong; just be sure of what you are getting, as I have witnessed some games being played with the photos attached to the descriptions here. Compared To Leatherman: I have EDC ed a Leatherman in various forms for 25 years, and I would still consider Leatherman to be the Gold Standard by which all others are judged. I do realize there are other brands, and I have had most of them. While many differences exist between the two, most come down to personal preference rather than quality. For example, I like the standard (small) Leatherman pliers better because of the finer shape of the nose, but the Swisstool pliers are also excellent. This Swisstool offers the ability to use the various tools without opening up the handles, and this might be an advantage for some. Also, the curved design of the Swisstool allows for better hand comfort when using the pliers, although I have never considered this to be an issue with my Leathermans. So overall, I have to take the middle ground as to which is better. I suppose the Swisstool gets points for sexiness, due to the absolutely perfect polished finish and graceful design, but I still love all of my Leatherman models, and they still turn heads when I deploy the tools and fix something in a fraction of the time it would take someone to walk to some location and grab a toolbag. Overall, the reason I ended up with the Swisstool instead of the Leatherman is due to the thickness, the size when closed, and the price to get (most) of the features I wanted. The Leatherman models I considered were either small and toy-like, or big, heavy and expensive; I have found that the thickness of the tool is the biggest issue with carrying in my front pocket without a case, rather than overall length. A model like the Leatherman Wave has more protruding edges that tend to catch and wear on pants and pockets. The Swisstool has smooth and rounded corners and is riveted with a round headed fastener that does not offer as much resistance in the pocket as the fastener heads on the Leathermans. Also, I really am not interested in anything that comes with a set of bits, which complicates carrying and increases the odds of losing something critical. Are you listening out there in Portland?? Pleasant Surprises: In addition to just overall quality, the feel and precision of the locking mechanism is very impressive. The sharpness and toughness of the tools may surpass that of my previous Leatherman models, and the small chisel is a bonus that I now realize will see much service in the future. Dislikes: not much. I really, really wanted a straight design with the measuring scale, but that is only available in a larger model. The scissors are a bit puny when compared to the larger model. And the knife blade on this particular Swisstool is kind of smallish and a less aggressive design than the Leathermans I have owned. I should also mention that I hate the stiffness and long, long break-in period on any of these tools. It is sometimes difficult to deploy certain tools if you are fingernail challenged . In summary, I offer this method to help you select the right tool; First decide on a strict price range, next overall size, then features you have to have. You might just end up with another brand- even the cheaper brands are decent quality for occasional use, so maybe you don't have to spend a bundle to get what you are after. The biggest weakness in the less expensive brands that I have witnessed personally relates to the quality and hardness of the steels, but this might not be a big issue for the occasional user or an item going into an emergency kit. This tends to show up as wear on things like the Phillips head and jaws of the pliers. It is surprising how many different brands and sizes there are floating around today, so you have to take into account how you plan to use it. I don t like any of the cases on either brand, and I don t believe that cases should be a factor when choosing because none of them will hold up as long as the tool, which very likely will last a lifetime, or until you lose it to the TSA. 5
