Victorinox Autotool

Oct 5, 1998
Just a first impression!...I played around with one today and I was NOT impressed at all. The pliers head is the same as in the Swisstool, but they are not centered in the handle, instead they are on one side of the tool. Using just medium pressure on the pliers, the whole tool began to bend towards the side without.
As a follow up to the Swisstool, this one seems to be a BIG flop! too flimsy and too much plastic for my taste. It reminds me of a multi tool Id see at a check out line at an auto parts store.
I did pick up a Swisschamp with the maglite, compass and sheath though!
