When selecting camping equipment, one of the first few things in my bag is a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife. Choosing camping equipment requires two main considerations

- Is it multi purpose (can it do more than one job or be used in multiple applications)?

- Is it going to be light weight and not add to much to your carrying weight?

The good thing is that a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife fulfills both criteria.

My personal favourite is the Victorinox Swiss Champ Swiss Army Knife. The knife has almost anything and everything you would need on a camping trip (Blades, scissors, screwdriver, a magnifying glass and even a wood saw!).
