Victorinox Dual Pro X Knife Review

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Swiss Army Knives . All opinions are 100% mine.

In my opinion, you can’t really call yourself a true gadgeteer unless you have at least one Swiss Army knife somewhere in your arsenal of tools. The company that has brought us the iconic Red sided multi-bladed pocket knife has recently added a new model to their Victorinox Grip Series of knives. It’s the Dual Pro X pocket knife.

Modeled after their popular Soldier Knife, the Dual Pro X is 4 3/8 inch (111 mm) when closed.

The Red handles are still there, but they now have Black accents and a better grip than the classic shiny Red plastic handles.

This knife has 6 separate blades including 3 that lock securely in in the open position.

To close a locked blade you have to press the lock release as you fold the blade closed. It takes two hands to do this.

Here’s a list of the tools:

One-Hand Locking Blade
One-Hand Serrated Locking Seat Belt Cutter
Phillips Screwdriver
Can Opener with
-Small Screwdriver
Bottle Opener with
-Large Locking Screwdriver
-Wire Stripper
Reamer
Key Ring

The Dual Pro X is a tough knife that can handle a lot of tasks both outdoors and indoors. I wanted to put my Dual Pro X to the test, so I took it outside to do a little creative whittling. Click the images below to see a larger view of my handy work.

What do you think? Ok, just kidding… Good old Mother Nature decided to bless one of the 50-60ft tall Poplar trees in my back yard with a direct lightning strike last week. According to a neighbor, it sounded like a bomb had exploded. It sent chunks of wood from the back yard where the tree stands, to the front yard.

Here’s one of those chunks… I decided to try a little chip carving on it. It’s supposed to say HELLO… I don’t think I’ll quit my day job to become a wood carver anytime soon ;)

Whether it’s whittling, fishing, camping or tightening a screw on the back of your computer tower, the Victorinox Dual Pro X knife can handle it. It’s made well and is backed up with a limited lifetime warranty.

    Well, I guess this makes me a true “gadgeteer” then as I always carry two Swiss Army items on me at all times. Now reading this, looking at the knife, maybe time for three? :-)

    @The Captain Wow, 2? You’re double the gadgeteer I’ll ever be ;)

    Much nicer and lighter knife than the SwissChamp XAVT!

    Only a large Phillips screwdriver and no scissors? Meh.

    I’ve owned dozens of Swiss army knives and multi tools; currently I carry both a Buck knife and a Victorinox Rambler (the perfect combination of size and utility… I love this knife). I also keep a leatherman in my car and in my bicycle bag.

    FYI, Amazon has a $10 off $50 deal on some Victorinox knives (I ordered three Ramblers as stocking stuffers for $40.04 shipped).

    No toothpick or tweezers? Bah!

    Funny that Julie mentioned about being true gadgeteer. Years ago, after reading one of her posts reviewing the Swissmemory USB knife (see link below), I still have the original 64MB with me. The knife is still sharp. I also own a couple of other knives and learned to love the bright red color at least for one thing: it is easier to spot when dropped in the dark (under the desk, in the car, …) Seeing this knife really tempts me to become “double gadgeteer” :-)

    Duh! I promised a link of my knife:

    I took this picture just now using my phone so the quality is lacking.

    I carry a first generation SwissTool and a SwissCard everyday. Indispensable.
