    I can understand the need in the army for a knife, can opener and maybe a saw.
    But a Wine opener, bottle opener, belt pricker, mini scissor and especially the tooth pick make me wonder about the priorities of the swiss army.
    Does the Swiss Army all get a Swiss Army knife?


    Rambo only needs a knife

    After doing a bit of lazy research I've found out that only officers have a bottle opener, because they're drunktards who tend to avoid dying whenever possible.

    Also, MacGyver > Rambo. FACT.

    Ah, but Jack O'Neill > MacGyver.

    Maeburn - Hitting another Officer is a Court Martial offence

    O'Neill - I'm not going to hit you Maeburn. I'm going to shoot you.

    Not much of a Swiss Army knife tho' is it?

    A tiny blunt blade, scissors that don't work and a nail file.

    Taking a neutral stance does not preclude you from having an army.

    The neutrality refers to the fact that they will not take part in conflicts twixt other countries. However they are free to change that policy if they decide to.
