Victorinox SwissTool RS Multi Tool Review

Designed and created by Victorinox, the same company that brought us the original Swiss Army knife with the same build quality and reliability. The SwissTool RS does not disappoint with 14 tools and 21 functions.

Victorinox SwissTool RS (Rescue and Survival)

If you are the type of person that likes to carry a multitool on your belt, the Victorinox SwissTool RS multitool does not disappoint. This Victorinox SwissTool RS multitool has 14 tools that cover 21 different functions: 3 different size screwdrivers (2mm, 3mm, and 5mm), a pair of pliers, wire strippers, crimper, scraper, can opener, bottle opener, a cutter, saw blade, a pair of scissors, two rulers, a wire bender, and more. The RS stands for Rescue and Survival, and that is what this multi-tool pocketknife does – it’s built tough, so it can handle any job you throw at it. Victorinox stands behind all their products with a lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship.

Our Hands-On Review

Victorinox has over one hundred years of experience and it shows – they know how to build a multi-function tool. Made from the same high-quality stainless steel as Swiss Army knives, SwissTools will never rust. Victorinox designed the SwissTool RS for belt-carry with the included nylon sheath (10 oz is too heavy for pocket carry). At only four and a half inches long, the SwissTool RS fits nicely on your belt with the included nylon pouch. The sleek stainless steel is very comfortable in your hand with an intuitive easy-locking slider on the side.

Each tool inside the Victorinox SwissTool RS multitool comes with its own spring and lock mechanism which makes the SwissTool RS safer than other tools. You can easily open each tool without the fear of having two or more tools clump together or closing accidentally on your fingers. While the SwissTool RS multitool is more expensive than many other tools, the Victorinox quality makes it worth the investment.
