Victorinox Swiss Card
Advantages: great way to stay organised and still have everything at hand
I am not one to be carrying knives and scissors around in my bag with me at all. Rather if I did ever need to cut a tread off my dress or cut something open, i'd simply pull out my nail cutter and it would cut through most things I needed it too. When I turned 19 years old my uncle, who is the most organized person I know gave this Victorinox card tool to me as a birthday gift and now I cant imagine my life without it.
This multi-functional card tool is as small as a debit card but as thick as 4 debit cards put together. Still slim enough to fit in a card holder. It comes in different colors but mine is pink and it allows me to see all the little gadgets that are inside it. It comes with a small knife which isn't killer sharp, but sharp enough to cut through a card board box with a little force, more like a letter opener. It is as small as 2-3 inches, perfect to carry around.
This handy little accessory also features a very thin pen which is very difficult to write with because of the thiness but gets the job done if you happen to need a pen while your out and about. Also a plastic toothpick which is very practical if your out at the restaurant, but remember to clean it with disinfectant before putting it back in the little card.
Also, a small pair of scissors which comes in very handy, much more that you'd think. Again, this is just a tool to get little things cut while your out and about, it isn't the most comfortable to work with and also only has one loop hole to insert your finger in and the other one you simply press down on to get a cut.
It comes with a little sewing pin, which when I use I always forget to put back so luckily I can replace it with another sewing pin. This isn't a necessity, but you will find at some point you will wish you had a little pin and that's when this little card won't let you down.
The card itself has ruler imprints along the length of the card which means it also serves as a ruler. A pair of tweezers is also inserted in this card which believe me, are very sharp and very well made. I only ever use them if I find a stray hair on my eyebrow and they are amazing to use. In fact, you have to be careful not to pinch your skin or else it will hurt!
And last but not least, it has a nail file which to be honest, i think over the years I've probably only ever used once or twice but it satisfys me to know that if ever need be, I can file down my nails while i'm on the go.
This card in no way is to be used for everyday use or to replace bigger blades and scissors etc. But, to keep in your handbag or your pocket, it is such a great way to stay organized and still have everything at hand. The amount of times I have pulled this card out for others as well as myself is countless and I always get complimented when I get seen with it. It makes a great gift, it keeps my bag de-cluttered and I can carry it around me me anywhere I go. I am so thankful to be given this as a gift, it really has helped me stay organised.
The price range varies, depending on where you buy it from, I know boots have it around Christmas time and other than that it is widely available on the internet for anywhere between 10- 15 pounds.
Summary: A great way to stay organised and over all a very impressive gadget
