Every Day Carry

Victorinox Recruit Pocketknife


Minimal every day carry

The Victorinox Recruit has been my daily carry for several years now, and as any carrier of a multi-tool will tell you, there are several times a day to utilize these tools. What, I feel, separates the Recruit out from other multi-tools is its size. My job doesn’t give me the opportunity to carry a full-size multi-tool outside my pants on my belt. In a business casual workplace, jeans are not the norm. The Recruit can fit easily in the pocket of a pair of chinos, better yet by a pair with the fifth “coin” pocket. While it may lack the number of tools of a more traditional multi-tool, I find it has the essentials I need to get through my day. With a bottle opener, can opener, box opener, two size screwdrivers, toothpick (which I use several times a day), tweezers, and a large and small blade, there are very few daily tasks that can’t be tackled with the Recruit.
