Comments on: Victorinox Swiss Army Knives: Like MacGyver http://www.stuffgeekswant.com/2008/11/victorinox-swiss-army-knives-like-macgyver/ The place to find that special something that your Geek wants (or to find that something you want for yourself) Tue, 15 Jun 2010 13:56:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Rocky http://www.stuffgeekswant.com/2008/11/victorinox-swiss-army-knives-like-macgyver/comment-page-1/#comment-423 Rocky Mon, 01 Dec 2008 19:18:44 +0000 http://www.stuffgeekswant.com/?p=314#comment-423 Not sure how you could call $40 for a precision engineered top quality stainless steel pocket knife which has other functions/tools to boot "expensive for what you get". When you compare that to some of the cheap rip-offs around and compare the quality and longevity of the knife itself: $40 is a good deal, for an item which will last for years and in many cases get used every day. I doubt that SAKs (Swiss Army Knife) have lost anything to Leatherman actually. Leatherman are generally bulky and heavy and considerably more complicated to use than a SAK. Sure you get a pair of pliers with a Leatherman, but other than that the rest of the blades are basically the same as you can get with a SAK, so your paying a lot more than a SAK for basically the same stuff in a bigger heavier shell.
