Welcome to the final Tool of the Month blog post for 2017!
This month it's a very quick look at a tool that’s always in the pocket of my work jeans!
In the 1890’s the Swiss army adopted a new pocket knife, this knife contained a blade, can opener and a screwdriver for stripping and reassembling the army’s rifle. This would become the original Swiss Army knife, today there are many versions with countless combinations of tools, some useful some simply as a gimmick!
The knife that lives in my pocket at work is the Spartan model made by Victorinox, it is one of the most basic versions made. It has two blades, screwdrivers, bottle opener, corkscrew, punch, toothpick and tweezers.
The two most used functions are the main blade for opening boxes and sharpening pencils and the tweezers which are brilliant for removing splinters!
That’s it for this months blog and 2017!
Happy New Year 🎊
