NATO / GOV - Victorinox German Military Issue Pocket Knife
We were able to obtain a small quantity of Victorinox current issue German military pocket knives. These are brand new Victorinox knives were made exclusively for the German Army (Bundeswehr) with olive drab nylon handles. We are very impressed with the one handed opening blade that locks open. The closed size can best be described as "just right" or 4 3/8". This is not your father's Swiss Gentleman's Knife. This is a real work tool that won't let you down.
Collectable? We are not sure. Some of our staff members are putting some away calling them collectable. The rest of us are calling them quality tools and using them as our every day carry knives.

Love this pocket knife I had to get 2 ! Pretty cool that the German army uses it I see why very robust
This is "real deal" version of the Swiss army knife, extremely sturdy. I bought it primarily for the locking blade which has a very strong liner lock. I'm not a big fan of serrated blades, but it is razor sharp out of the box. My other desire was a good saw, which this has. It is a very aggressive saw with sharp teeth and though it doesn't lock open, pressure sawing should keep it from closing. The entire knife with the various tools are all well made, tight, and sturdy. It is a large knife and takes up pocket space, but is good in an emergency. It is a little tricky to open one-handed and definitely takes two hands to close. The scales have a slight texturing and for me did not get slippery when wet. I am very happy with this knife and would recommend it to anyone needing a serious tool.
