Victorinox M05 Locksmith folding knife
Victorinox doesn't need much introduction. This is their Locksmith model, but the twist here is the Finnish M05 camouflage pattern - only available from Varusteleka! The large size and a nice array of cutting options make this an allrounder and outdoor knife.
This solid block of a knife holds inside a nice amount of Swiss-made steel hardware and offers a long term companion for its owner. If you have no use for cork screws or cheese pickers or manicure kits, but would rather have use for more realistic tools, this is your pocket knife. Of course the effective camouflage pattern means you probably want to put a piece of day-glo orange cord on the keyring.

About the manufacturer
Victorinox has been around since 1884. A couple of years later they hit big with the classic officer's pocket knife. From here on in the reputation skyrocketed. Victorinox has held on to their Swissness in everything they do, which has been proven to be a smart decision.

The only complaint I have is that it is possible (with effort) to depress the main blade far enough to put the the last millimeter or so of its tip into slight contact the lip of the backspring at the tweezer/toothpick end of the scales, which obviously hurts the edge there. This appears to be an issue unique to Victorinox's one-handed main blades on 111s, as I have a Forester with a traditional nail-nick that doesn't do this. Almost a nonissue, given how easy these things are to sharpen and how tiny the hotspot is - just something to check for in case your knife gets dropped and hits the ground wrong. Guessing mine got jolted in shipment to the US, because it hasn't repeated since I fixed it.
Other than that, pretty much perfect!
