Swisscard Lite: Wallet-sized multitool

Hey! I've got a hack sitting right here from Nancy about the Swisscard Lite, and I see it's currently 50% off as part of the Amazon Victorinox sale! Good timing:

I don't know if this is a hack -- I would just like to highly reccommend a product. I bought this for my husband's birthday and he uses it all the time. I bought one for myself and have used it like five times in the last few weeks. The 4-headed screwdriver (chinese fighting star looking) was handy when putting new batteries in a toy. The magnifier rocks. The knife also opens letters, or shrink rap off products. It even has a pen, and a pin in case you need to make a compass (make sure that pin is magnetized!)

That looks handy. I'm working on up a post about disaster preparedness for Momformation- I will mention this handy tool.

We have gone through 3 of these in the last 4-5 years. We love them. The scissors are so handy.


I think I have an older version - it has tweezers and a plastic toothpick - very handy!

man i feel so famous, same post published twice! i would have written it better had i known!

i can still highly rec. it, i find more and more uses for it all the time!

and since, i got a fancy little wallet for it from a local vitorinox dealer (peterson.ie), as i transfer it from bag to bag (to guitar case!)
