I have nothing but praise for the SwissTool.
While I have not tried every other available model, I haven't seen anything to convince me that the SwissTool is anything less than the finest multitool line available.
I have an Original and an X. I EDC one or the other 7 days per week. I have used them both extensively. Some of my use, as an impromteu hammer, certainly qualifies as abuse. Both my SwissTools have taken that and more without a hitch. They function as well or better than they did when brand new.
I am always mystifed by the comments on the weight of the SwissTool. I'm not a large guy, but I don't find the weight or size to be an issue. If it wasn't for the weight and solid construction, the SwissTool wouldn't be the tool it is.
Yeah, I am a big fan of the SwissTool. It is one heck of a cuttin', plierin', screwdrivin', wire cuttin', filin', pryin', sawin', scissorin'(depending on model), can openin', bottle openin', wire strippin', measurin', scrapin', awlin' toolbox in a pouch!
