You know how nowa­days every­one has a smart­phone that allows them to check their email, pay their bills, find the near­est restau­rant, and tweet their every move­ment? While every­one is all atwit­ter (no pun intend­ed) over what their phones can do, and argu­ing over who pro­vides the best 3G ser­vice, we at The Clymb are giv­ing props to the orig­i­nal all-in-one gad­get, the Swiss Army Knife.

If you’re out on the trail and have to tight­en a screw in your bike, can your smart­phone do that? Don’t think so. What are you going to use to remove a pesky splin­ter while hik­ing? There’s no app for that.

For over a cen­tu­ry the Vic­tori­nox Swiss Army Knife has been the very def­i­n­i­tion of dura­bil­i­ty and func­tion­al­i­ty. Their inge­nious designs have proven to be not just prac­ti­cal, but timeless.

Begin­ning today at 9am PST and run­ning through Thurs­day (5/13) at 9am PST, mem­bers of The Clymb can receive up to 55% off The Orig­i­nal Swiss Army Knife. You can get more info on obtain­ing a free mem­ber­ship by vis­it­ing our Face­book page. In the mean­time, check out this pret­ty neat video on how to prop­er­ly clean and main­tain your Vic­tori­nox Swiss Army Knife.
