8.0 SWISS ARMY KNIFE - GET A CHEAP IMITATION - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS
I have owned a real Swiss army knife for almost twenty years. I paid about $50 at the time. It is, perhaps, the most useful tool I own. It has scissors, a metal file, a small saw, an awl, tweezers, a screwdriver, a can opener and much more. When you buy the expensive kind, it is guaranteed for life. If the knife ever fails to work or breaks, the company will replace it. So buying the real thing is a good investment.
But recently I have seen Chinese imitation Swiss army knives at Wal-Mart and other stores for about $2-$3. These knives are not of the same quality as the original and probably will not last forever, but they are a good deal for the price. These are so cheap you could keep one at home, one in your car, and one in the office. These knives are a little hard to open, so oil them occasionally and/or spray them with WD40.
Generally you will find these knives in the sporting goods section.
