Swiss Army Knife – Victorinox Fieldmaster Review art. n.1.4713

Last Update 21-02-2021

The Victorinox Fieldmaster art. n.1.4713 is a standard 91mm 4 layer SAK from Victorinox, of course made in Switzerland like all Victorinox models.
It is the more complete camping-version of the Spartan, it is similar to the Tinker Deluxe, the difference is it has no pliers but a woodsaw and a Phillips Screwdriver.

is is exaclty the same as the Huntsman, only differs as has a Phillips Screwdriver, instead of the corkscrew and Red Cellidor handles.

the included 15 tools are:

Large Blade
Small Blade
Can Opener
3mm small screwdriver (flat)
Bottle Opener (unbeatable for beer bottles!)
6mm screwdriver (flat)
Wire stripper
Awl / Reamer / Punch / thread hole multitool
Phillips 1-2 Screwdriver
Multi Hook (great for shopping bags)
Tweeers (some of the best out there, I keep a spare one in the wallet)
Split Ring


Size 91mm long 20mm thick
100gr exact weight without lanyard (101gr with lanyard pictured)
ABS Cellidor scales, red, embossed metal cross

Update dates will be posted on top of every review.

the multi-hook is the strangest tool Victorinox offers, they call it the “multihook”, i’ve only used it to tie strings and to carry plastic bags, without cutting your fingers.

The punch/awl is a multitool that can be used to punch holes in leather, wood, plastic, cardboard, belts and to sew through them easily.

Phillips “1-2” cross head screwdriver, fits almost all sizes, the BEST you can find, the position makes it hand out a lot of torque.

tick and tweezers (best ever)
the tick is good for, well, many things
the tweezers are mostly used for splinters

the lanyard/split-ring is the most fun tool offered, as it doubles as an embellishment option as a safety not to loose the knife, lanyards can be fun but are also useful not to loose your precious companion.

Last Words and Conclusions:

Price: I paid 18€ on amazon for this sample, it was a WarehouseDeals awesome deal, it’s currently in my EDC Rotation

What I like:

  • GREAT Price and quality
  • Swiss Made…since the beginning
  • Good Steel, stupid easy to sharpen and good enough for most people
  • arrives sharp and well sharpened

What I DON’T like:

  • nothing else in particular
  • lacks the small pin

Other considerations:

  • given the outdoor backing idea a sheath would be a nice option to have

the knife was bought with my own money, i was not paid for the review
