    Default Where to buy Swiss knife?

    Want to buy a Swiss knife. A simple one will do. Any recommended place? And how much will be the price range? I am totally not familiar with it

    For Wenger can go to the local distributor, Sports Unlimited. They have an outlet within Takashimaya Ngee Ann City, 4th floor if I remember correctly. Simple one will cost about $20-30 depending on size.

    Thank you! I will go and take a look then . Just did a search and found out Wenger had been bought over by Victorinox.

    Amazon.com... then ship through Borderlinx or VPost. I bought many these way.

    If you want the Leatherman tool, the Victorinox Swisstool is a much better choice.

    Yes, I like Leatherman! But the price is way too high

    Beach Rd is a good place to have a look, basic ones range from 20 to 1xx

    I would also suggest you look at the Leatherman Juice series as an alternative.




    DESCRIPTIONThe Leatherman Juice Pro tool offers the most options of any tool in the Juice line, but it's still compact enough to fit in your pocket.
    This model was introduced in 2001 and then retired in 2005, but it is still sometimes available in new or used condition. As the "top of the line" Juice, it has become a collector's item-- and it offers a great selection of blades and implements besides, if you just want to use it as a practical pocket tool.
    The Juice Pro pocket tool is built from stainless steel, housed in a Storm Gray anodized aluminum body.

    WEIGHTThe Juice Pro weighs about 190 grams (6.7 oz).
    TOOLS

    uice Pro tools are medium-sized Leatherman multi-tools (3 1/4" / 84mm) that contain the following implements:
    Pliers and Wire Cutter
    ScissorsFoil Cutter Lanyard Attachment

    Thank you all, guys! OK, I will pay a visit to beach road shops and Taka.

    nottipiglet, I only want to buy a simple one, so Amazon.com maybe too troublesome and also the postage charge. Anyway, it's a good suggestion and I found the price there is really low .

    liarliar, I am not into swords now. Thanks for the info anyway, haha..

    don't forget about gerber

    leatherman is good but expensive. read up some reviews on the different brands and you'll see that some would prefer SA, some leatherman, some gerber and other brands..different tools for different needs.

    wad features are must haves, wad can u do without? that will go some way to determine the item's price. more details betta, if not price range from $50 - $250 easily. that is a wide price range.

    if a knife is a very important feature, maybe jsut get a folding knife?

    I need some basic features like a knife, can opener, maybe a screw driver as well? I want something small and light, easy to carry one.
