Amazon Deal of the Day 7/31/08: Victorinox Swiss Army Knives

Amazon's Deal of the Day: Swiss Army knives (your basic camping and exploration staple and the inspiration for the Parent Hacks logo): both usually priced over $50, but today only, they're $19.99.

I've got a soft spot for these -- I was given one as a kid and it made me feel like the most self-sufficient person in the world. Pair one up with a copy of The Dangerous Book for Boys or The Daring Book for Girls and you've got a perfect summer birthday gift.
