In a previous One Day Build video in which Adam made a replacement blade for his Victorinox replica, many viewers pointed out that Adam installed one of the blades backwards! It's an error that's finally remedied as Adam shares a lovely note and gift from none other than the CEO of Victorinox!

Thanks for watching!
Be still my OCD heart!
Almost no blades are on the back side of a swiss army knife.
Please go I want to see that too
Dear Americans, plz pull your fingers out of your collective butts and sort your covid out, so we may vicariously live the factory tour through our man Adam :P
I totally know how those projects go! You just worked on it a couple weeks ago but forget everything about it!? Did I really just take this apart 2 weeks ago???
Thank you Adam , it was driving me crazy.
It would have been funny if the gifted pocket knife had the small blade assembled backwards just specially made for Adam.
You are so rocking the Mad Scientist vibe. Wild hair, near-sightedness, eclectic yet functional workshop. Brilliant!
What are the clips he put the red plastic parts on with?
How flocking cool!!!
This video really makes me think about how many wonderful people there are in the world
In disappointed for a lack of nut based pun one of the times the nut driver wasn't the right size. Such 'Aw Nuts'.
That had comedic value
If only you had a swiss army knife to use as reference
I bought my blue Swiss Champ back in 1999, when I visited Switzerland. It is blue, a color you weren't able to get in the United States at the time, and had it engraved similarly. It has taken a beating through the years, but still works great when I need it!.
Make a leather holder for that knife!?.
How much coke did he do before this video sniff sniff
That blade didn’t bother me that much. Twitch I wasn’t fixated on it to the point of distraction at all. twitch twitch
Miss my swisschamp.
Who even dislikes content like this?
Omg watching you work on this with the various blades above your head is stressful xD
I thought I was alone in this bothering me on every one of his videos. Clearly not! What a relief....
Fun fact: Swiss army ORDERED a compact multipurpose knife.....in Solingen (blade city) Germany. Swiss Knife my butt!!!!!
Is anybody else shouting "No! It goes the other way!" at the video?
Adam, did you ever get Jamie's beret that you shot with a shotgun?
There's a Doc Brown vibe going on here.
shouldnt the small blade be on the outside not middle? As in back next to the big blade
Anyone else get nervous when he put the knife on the edge of the table to insert the new circlip?
Wouldn't mind having one of those displays
Finally something where my skill set seems on par with Adam.... Trying to find the right nut driver size.
The mystery yellow/green wire is ground. It is not a big deal until it is. Adam has a poor habit of omitting grounds from his projects, and it is a little scary.
Partial relief... the Thumb Groove is still on the wrong side. He’d have to remake the part to fix it.
now do it again but only using the swiss army knief lol
Oooof. That was painful to watch. I haven’t had that think in my shop for 10 years and I knew what was going wrong. At least pick up the new knife on the bench and look at the arrangements. Lol.
Too bad there isn't a YouTube video you could watch to see how it was disassembled....
THE BLADE ON THE RIGHT IS NOT MOVING AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!
as i need to open boxes a lot, i found having a tiny blade on my keychain was the handiest solution. Victorinox make a very tiny one just the right size.
Pretty sure it's been pointed out but, they even personalized the knife for you.
Hey Adam, after you reassembled the knife, one of the blades was not moving. I hate to be the one to point it out.
Opinel > Victorinox
Just imagine the late Huell Howser doing an episode of Adam’s Cave!
Thank you for fixing it. I was one of the people disturbed by it. lol.
But there is no corkscrew, or tweezers, on tooth pick!
7/64th’s you guys would be so much better off on the metric system.
A part of the Universe just started working again... or something like that.
I LOVE those brown drawer sets above the drawers where he grabbed the transfer punch. so gorgeous.
Swiss champ was my first knife I got for scouts when I was like 11 ,when you are there can you ask if they can make a new swiss flame/Swiss camp ? And how I can fix my original one.
I thought the tool cart islands were to eliminate all of that back and forth to the bench trying to find the right nut driver. I really did.
Oh yeah! Switzerland would be so absolutely awesome!!
every episode: I just love it when Adam is so happy about something :)
The original One Day Build repair video of the Victorinox display: https://youtu.be/gygyNt2AnKA
The scissors, knives, and openers all go on the same side, only the awl is on the other side.
14:00 isnt that thing near the scissors ment to move too?
OMG YES!! THIS MUST HAPPEN !!!
Oh thank God. I feel like I’ve been holding in a sneeze for months. I can finally relax now.
OH MAN! IT WAS TOUCH AND GO FOR A MINUTE!
am i the only one that noticed that the screwdriver/bottle opener was also upside down?
Love how the scissors open/close, too
I've been waiting for this moment. Now, I can die a happy man.
What brand mini drill is he using at the 7:17 mark?
You should talk about injuries in the work space. I see you have a bandaid and a black finger nail. Good content! Enjoy your work.
Is this the torch to signify the other end of lock-down?
Anyone else have an anxiety attack when the top blade started to jiggle!!
the blade is too short compared to the screwdriver
Adam your sniffling! Are you ok? Please be healthy!
Didn't even notice the scissors are on the wrong side.
DUDE! That is so awesome that they went out of their way like that for you, you must be super excited!
why make everything moving but only the middle tool not moving?
I kept waiting for him to stab himself with the reamer when he had it locked facing him.
The knife is awesome though
Wait, it was broken?
That was as satisfying as flossing out that unruly popcorn husk from your teeth after a movie.
You should go visit Leatherman in Portland Oregon. They make some killer tools as well.
yells at my screen the bottle opener flat head is on the wrong side. Hears the belts slip so glad you got it working.
A trick my dad showed me (in something like the nutdriver situation) is to press your thumb or finger into the bolt for a sec and use the imprint it makes as a quick reference.
Am I the only one who saw the yellow Wright-style plane just teleport to a different orientation right before he climbed up to get the knife? Or was that a glitch in the matrix?
I liked the crash landing @2:58 when he put it down on the table and all you see is half his face in the camera doing the "whoops" face.
I EDC a SAK that I cobbled together from various ones I had, basically a SAK Compact plus the pliers, magnifying glass and phillips head from a swisschamp: https://i.imgur.com/3PCxmOE.jpg
It's like an Explorer X. :D
Does Adam have a coke problem.
The motor is making a clicking sound and annoying everyone. It's very dangerous so we have to deal with it.
Hydraulic press lowers
If you put the scissor on the other side you have a proper super tinker
Oh thank god, its been driving me nuts
c-clips also known as Jesus clips because they always fly away and you shout jesus(christ) followd by a couple of swear words
Does anyone else have a scar on their index finger and pinky finger from a swiss army knife closing on them when they were kids? Im sure the scar on the lockings picking lawyers index finger is from one as it is identical to mine. I only ever use locking blades now.
FINALLY !!! I was so excited to see this posted that I had to stop and get epic background music.
" Árstíðir - Heyr himna smiður (Icelandic hymn) in train station " makes everything better
You spend an impressive amount of time not in shot in your videos
We have all done the Nutdriver dance
As a child, we would visit Gwinnett Place Mall to see Santa every year. One of these was in a display window of a jeweler and I loved watching it move. It was one of the things I insisted we see each holiday season.
more than 3/4 of the tinkers was done under the camera frame
Don't own one, but the first time I saw a Victorinox, I was sold. Can't compare anything else to it.
I'm surprised the Swiss army knife arrived
If it was made in Japan, the correct socket could only have been 8mm or 10mm depending on whether they used a 5mm or 6mm thread. Was in fear of Adam stabbing himself in the head or right ear with the awl/rope splice/hoof cleaner tool after he swung it up 'out of his way'...lol
And this is why we love you :)
09:30 Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is a masterful performance of what we call the "where is my wallet?"-face.
This reminds me that people really do have wildly different problem-solving strategies. At no point does Adam reference the object the display is based upon for placement of the bits. That is my first stop.
oh, thankk god. That drove me nuts everytime I saw it.
I would have left it while basking in glee from the knowledge that so many people are so irrationally invested in the desire for that blade to be flipped around.
The Internet really does need thicker skin.
