We call this the Army knife because of all the many features it offers. It is similar to the Swiss Army knives that have been on the market for many years. The truth is, the quality of this Rite Edge knife is every bit as good as the original Swiss army knives, the big difference is this knife cost 400% less. This is not a misprint, J & L has such buying power with our import vendors that we can bring you this high quality knife at a fraction of the actual value. This knife is crafted from stainless steel and had a finished wood handle. This makes a great gift for any hunter, cub scout or anyone who is needs a pocket-size multifunction knife/tool.
