Great Victorinox quality as usual.
My only complaint is that it has to have a corkscrew, totally useless to me. However I chose this one because the Dual pro X doesn't have a serrated main blade. This thing is a handful of good, smooth cutting serrations, both the seatbelt cutter blade & the primary one are beveled on both sides, however there is a ground edge bevel only on the single side. All you really have to do to keep those serrations sharp & cutting cleanly, is run the flat, non ground side "backwards" over a fine ceramic rod at a flat angle, almost as if you were stropping on leather, but only on that "non sharpened" side of the blade, if that makes sense. One of the reasons I like Vic-Nox is that, as some people complain, the steel seems a bit softer than some...but I find it easy to maintain. The dual density grips on this model are based, like many newer V-Nox models, on the "2008" (year it came out) Soldier knife, the OD green one. They provide a significantly better grip with moist or wet hands, and don't have a tendency like most Swiss Army handles to feel slick when greasy. This is a heavier tool that some will wear on their belt, I just throw mine in my left (non dominant side) pocket & have a long paracord lanyard attached to the key-ring so I can pull it out easier. Again, everything we've come to expect, comfortable handles...I'm just pretty certain I'll never need that corkscrew...
