Versatility.

Both the Opinel and the Wenger Swiss Army Knife pictured above are classics in their own right.  I first learned of the Opinel when reading about mountain climbing expeditions decades ago.  My first contact with a Swiss Army Knife was when one was gifted to me in my early teens.

Which do you choose?

That question actually becomes much more difficult as there are multiple models of each.  In the case of Swiss Army Knives, one used to be able to choose between Wenger (the “Genuine Swiss Army Knife”) and Victorinox (the “Original Swiss Army Knife”).  While the brand of Swiss Army Knife has been cut to one (Victorinox), the wide range of choice remains.  With versatility also comes a bit of complexity.

Choose wisely.

Take care.
