The Victorinox Hercules lives up to its name. The Hercules is a rock-solid and versatile Swiss pocket knife. At first glance the Hercules looks a lot like the Victorinox Forester. The Hercules, however, contains an extra pair of scissors, pliers, two philips head screwdrivers, wire crimpers and wire cutters. Great! Like the Greek god Hercules no task will get in your way. With no less than 18 functions you will be prepared for anything.
Most important tools
The large knife is razor-sharp and has a cutting edge of no less than 8 cm. Once opened the knife will immediately be locked. As such the tool can never close when you don't want it to, also making it perfect for heavy-duty tasks. When opening and closing the blade you hear a familiar click. The knife is very solid and also suited for other outdoor and survival purposes.
Branches as thick as your wrist are no problem for this wood saw. The saw is thin. The spine is about 1.2mm thick and the serrations are 1.6mm thick. Because the spine is smaller than the teeth the saw won't get stuck in the wood and it limits friction. In addition to living wood this saw can handle pallets and shelves.
What do you use an awl for? For all tasks you wouldn't use the tip of your knife for! The awl has a one-sided grind. As such it is great to make markings on wood. Which side of the line should you adhere to when you mark something with a pencil? With an awl this isn't a problem. In addition, it is very practical to use an awl to prick into soft metals. To mark where you should drill for instance.

For that reason Victorinox gives out a lifelong warranty on material and production flaws. This means you don't have to worry if you find a production flaw.
