ha. . The Swiss r, rtist If been pretty. Only the officer model included one of those. Also the officers had to pay for that add-on because the military did not deem it necessary for a fighting unit.

What's more triumphant than opening up an enemy like a fine wine?

Using a corkscrew to remove your enemies eyes from their head!

Imagine how chill the Russians must be.
User avatar #30 to #17 - pickaxe (08/04/2014) [-]
russians just bite a hole in the bottle
#23 to #17 - auryn (08/04/2014) [-]
I don't think Russians drink anything that is corked.
#36 to #23 - anon (08/04/2014) [-]
Many Vodkas and other spirits from small Destilleries are still corked I think
#16 - knarta (08/04/2014) [-]
The official Swiss army Soldatenmesser does not have a corkscrew, but instead a screwdriver

Any idea what that little spike tool thing pointing at 12 o'clock is?
User avatar #34 to #18 - squiblles (08/04/2014) [-]
it's called an awl. use it to make neat holes in cloth for sewing repairs in the field. also good for putting holes in anything from wood to fingers.
User avatar #19 to #18 - knarta (08/04/2014) [-]
Dunno how it's called in English, but it's used to make nice clean little holes in stuff
User avatar #21 to #19 - vladhellsing (08/04/2014) [-]
So it's a hole puncher? For adding holes in belts & things? I could never figure out what it's for.
User avatar #25 to #21 - kirkbot (08/04/2014) [-]
it's also good for fine tuning the rifle sights and cleaning some parts
#28 to #25 - umppis (08/04/2014) [-]
I always thought it was for opening knots, thats what I use it for
User avatar #35 to #28 - vladhellsing (08/04/2014) [-]
Well I've learnt a lot today.
User avatar #46 to #25 - knarta (08/04/2014) [-]
We actually used the bottle openers for the sight, the are thiner at the end just for that. I was always amused at the shooting range where everyone would bring their swiss knife to turn the sights' angles and which would then be used to pop open a beer bottle after the training
User avatar #7 - heartlessrobot (08/04/2014) [-]
It was originally just a screwdriver for their guns, but they kept losing it so they added a ******* of other stuff so they wouldn't lose it.
User avatar #31 - sideism (08/04/2014) [-]
switzerland is mentioned, swell with knives and wrist watches
#39 to #31 - oORtvollOo (08/04/2014) [-]
That sounds painful.
User avatar #33 - ruebezahl (08/04/2014) [-]
That's a cork screw?? I always thought it was an eye gouger. At least I always used it like that.

isnt the swiss flag a square?
User avatar #48 to #44 - chrisel (08/05/2014) [-]
The flag of the nation itself is an square but the naval flag (don't ask me how they can have a navy) has a ratio of 2:3 or 7:10.
User avatar #24 - kirkbot (08/04/2014) [-]
since I'm just a low rank soldier, mine has a screwdriver where the corkscrew would be on the officer version
#38 to #24 - schneidend (08/04/2014) [-]
That's actually quite interesting to know.

you're right, that is actually very interesting, could you tell us more?
#47 to #42 - kirkbot (08/05/2014) [-]
in Switzerland we have enough bunker space to house 110% of the population. Only best Korea has more than that
#49 to #47 - unidfeel (08/05/2014) [-]
well good job guys, bravo have a thumb.

the french invented the 'swiss' army knife
#9 to #5 - lolfacejimmy (08/04/2014) [-]
a French guy designed it for the swiss army who said it was impractical

a little early to go to bed if you are Swiss, but sleep well
User avatar #10 - darkmagicmge (08/04/2014) [-]
My swiss army knife has a phillips head screwdriver instead of a corkscrew.
#15 to #10 - butiloveu (08/04/2014) [-]
Why not both... Why not everything?!
Including a beamer which plays the first season of house.
User avatar #12 to #10 - vatra (08/04/2014) [-]
So does that mean you think you're screwed and want to at least be able to take it out after?

You have no confidence in your chances for victory.

Obviously. You'd be confident too if you had the Templars in your corner.
