There’s no question the Swiss are master machinists, creating some of the best knives, tools, and watches for everyday carry. Some brands you may recognize more than most–especially for pocket multitools–but here’s one you may not have heard of before. Established in 1904, Swiza’s been making tools and everyday equipment for 112 years. The Swiza D04 is one of their signature multitools, and from its silhouette alone, you know this isn’t your usual Swiss knife.
The handle’s ergonomic shape gives you a sure grip with a soft touch, allowing you to wield its five folding tools with comfort. Its main 2.95" blade deploys with a nail nick slot and is made from an alloy of chrome and molybdenum to give it extra durability. A hardened, stainless steel awl lets you pierce leather or score and indent materials. Cans are no problem with the D04’s opener, which also includes a No. 1 flathead screwdriver on its tip. There’s a bottle opener on its other end, pulling double duty with a No. 3 flathead screwdriver. And on its back, a No. 1 Phillips screwdriver covers the last of your driving needs. The D04 also comes with a pair of tweezers with beveled tips for more delicate tasks.
Add a touch of Swiss-made comfort to your everyday tasks and pick up the Swiza D04 from the Amazon link below.

Top 10 Movies Everyone Should Watch (For Anonymous).
I don’t know if anyone wants to know why I chose each of these movies but I will write a little bit about why anyway, to defend my choice, if nothing else.
10. Requiem for a Dream (2000)
This movie looks at addiction. It’s kind of brutal on your emotions and got to me quite a lot but it’s one of those movies that needs to make you feel like that. It’s upsetting but it’s a very good movie.
9. Secret Window(2004)
I haven’t watched this in a while, but if it’s as good as I remember it being then it is rightfully on this list. A very good adaption of the Stephen King story. A very interesting, mysterious kind of movie.
8. Inception (2010)
This is a great movie, and even if it wasn’t, the scene pictured above makes it worth watching alone. The idea behind this is unique and it is so so so gripping. A lot of people are confused by it but I don’t think that’s a downside; it’s a very well thought out movie and if you are confused by it, I don’t think you’d at all mind re-watching it.
7. The Machinist (2004)
This movie is very clever. The foreshadowing used in it is superb and It keeps you guessing until the very end. It ended up being a lot more moving than I initially expected it to be.
6. Filth (2013)
People may say I just like this movie because it’s set in Scotland and that’s where I live but I think this movie was absolutely fantastic regardless of that. It was advertised as a comedy but, though it is darkly hilarious at parts, it is not a comedy. This movie will get to you. It literally left me with my jaw hanging in the cinema and stayed with me for a long time after I watched it. James Mcavoy’s acting in it is also brilliant. Definitely, definitely worth watching. A fantastic movie. It is released on DVD in the UK on February 10th.
5. Donnie Darko (2001)
This was the first movie I ever saw that made me think and totally changed the way I looked at movies. It really moved me when I first watched it at the age of twelve and it still moves me when I watch it. It’s mysterious and dark and interesting and haunting: a great movie.
4. Memento (2000)
This movie will fuck with you. I would probably say this movie is a masterpiece. It’s filmed in a fantastic way, and I don’t want to say too much about it but I have never seen another movie where everything was so different from what it seemed. Very unpredictable.
3. American Psycho (2000)
This is a strange movie. I don’t think it got it’s point across as well as the novel did but it also isn’t as stomach-wrenchingly vile as parts of the novel was so that’s good. This movie is actually quite funny but it makes a much deeper, darker statement, it’s very enjoyable to watch and is very thought-provoking. It is different from the novel but is in no way disappointing. A fantastic movie from a fantastic book. Patrick Bateman is also, oddly, a very likable character, and Christian Bale plays him brilliantly.
2. The Butterfly Effect (2004)
This was the first movie that ever really, really fucked with me, and it’s still the movie that fucks with me the most. Watch the director’s cut.This movie will take you on an emotional roller-coaster and will stay on your mind for a long time after you watch it but it is so worth it. This is 100% a movie that everyone should watch.
1. Fight Club (1999)
And, of course, here it is: Fight Club. I don’t care if this is cliche. Fight Club is the greatest movie I have ever seen and probably always will be. Every second of this movie is enjoyable to watch. I don’t think I can adequately explain why this movie is so great so I’m not going to insult it by trying, but I will say this: this movie changed my life, and if you don’t ever watch it, you are truly missing out. “It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we are free to do anything.”
Well thanks to anyone who read this, and please don’t insult my chosen movies; I know there are so many more amazing movies that aren’t on this list but I could only choose 10.
There’s something to say about actors who lose an extreme amount of weight to play a role in a film. To become so thin that they look emaciated and close to dying, to be weak and irritable from the lack of food, and loosing whatever previous muscle tone they once had indicates an unflaggible dedication to their craft. To put their bodies on the line for the sake of realism so that we filmgoers can watch their deteroration happen before our eyes on the big screen and know that it’s quite possibly the only non artificial thing in the entire film shows a true passion for their art.
