    In a Seinfeld episode, George cuts a cucumber with a Wenger. Don’t recall the episode.

    Almost forgot...

    Mean Streets (1973); Harvey Keitel's character is harassed by a cop for carrying a small SAK "pen knife".

    I'm a little late to this thread, but I remember a couple of SAK appearances:
    In the 1990 animated Disney movie The Rescuers Down Under, the main boy character carries a pocket knife that is clearly intended to be a Swiss Army Knife, even though when it is closed it merely resembles a red box with rounded ends.

    In a later episode of M*A*S*H, one of the 'likeable' doctors (I think it was B.J. Hunnicut) gets mad that one of the other doctors in "The Swamp" tent used his Swiss Army Knife for some prank or something.

    Can’t forget The Eiger Sanction where Dr Hemlock pulls out a SAK and cuts the rope holding him hundreds of feet from sure death....

    The movie “Blended” Adam Sandler’s character uses a SAK to cut the straps off a helmet that a kid couldn’t undo.

    The movie Castaway.
    Tom Hanks leaves his keys with the SAK behind at the beginning of the movie.
