Swiss Army Knives up to 75% Off


A large selection of Swiss Army Knives are on sale up to 75% off with an additional $10 off when you spend $50 or more on select knives. These qualify for Free Shipping, too!

The best deal I saw was on the Victorinox Swiss Army Huntsman II Knife that comes with an AA LED Flashlight. Normally $88.00 this is discounted to $23.65! It is also one of the eligible knives for the $10 off a $50 purchase and Free Shipping.

Or...go buy something local and actually help support the community you live in!

Yeah, buy the knife at your local Wal-Mart or Target. Get smart people, shop local!

kernal 7 years, 7 months ago

Do they have them at Ernst & Sons Hardware? Can't get more local than that!

Mike Wagner 7 years, 7 months ago

Well I hope your smart enough to understand when I say local I mean locally owned. Obviously you did and just wanted to be a smart/dumb A$$, mission accomplished.

hey, when I get a dumb statement to work with, I go for it kid!

Mike Willoughby 7 years, 7 months ago

Just a note, even when you guys shop at Wal-Mart or Target you are still supporting local people's wages. They will then hopefully spend more money locally.

Even when you shop from online vendors like Best Buy, Target or Wal-mart that have a local outlet, you are charged sales tax based on your shipping address. Those tax dollars stay in the state of Kansas.

It's when you shop on-line from vendors that are not represented locally at all, that Zero of your dollars stay in Lawrence.

Thanks again Jenn and Julie for showing us all that the "cheap" is mightier than the locally responsible.

I love it when people like you post and call somebody dumb when you can't even use the correct "your" and "you're." Smooth...

Normally $88? I worked in the outdoor retail industry for almost a decade, and the Huntsman knife is usually around $40-45. I mean, I guess the $88 price could reflect the fact that it is packaged with the flashlight, but that's just a cheap $5-10 flashlight. Still, $23.65 is a good deal for a package that would normally cost you around $50.

WHY 7 years, 7 months ago

Buying local is stupid. You live in a global economy. Don't be an ostrich with your head in the sand. It is OK to do business with China India or Colorado.

Dollars spent on goods manufactured locally have a multiplying effect that does bolster local economies, but there is some truth to your statement. The ultimate goal is to maximize each individuals buying power, which in turn allows us to spend more money, which in turn bolsters the nations economy.

WHY 7 years, 7 months ago

I get it. I mean if I purchased goods here there would be a local sales tax and the local guy would buy stuff locally. But at the end of the day I need to buy to many things and they are not manufactured here in town. Even if I buy a tv from a local electronics shop, he bought it from a supply company based in china. We are only a step or two away from the world on every transaction whether we like it or not.

Mike Wagner 7 years, 7 months ago

Oh no, the grammar police... Get a life, please!!!

Go ahead and do all ((you're)) shopping online, and when there is no local retail left you can all sit around and bitch about that!

booyalab 7 years, 7 months ago

I think people like you imagine that there was a time when people bought everything locally. That time has never existed. Even before the internet, there were catalogs. And "local retail", even before catalogs, has never sold exclusively locally made merchandise. Before catalogs, farmers could only buy certain supplies (not locally made) from general stores who sold them at very high prices because they didn't have any competition. Your fantasy of exclusively local middle-men selling exclusively local products has never existed and never will. Nor is that a bad thing.

WHY 7 years, 7 months ago

If I can already buy everything I want online why would I need local retail??

JustNoticed 7 years, 7 months ago

You should pay attention to the grammar cops, bigmike - unless you just like spewing gibberish.

RoeDapple 7 years, 7 months ago

If our "local" retailers do not have an online presence they are only adding nails to their own coffin lid. For anything I don't need "right now" I prefer to use my "local" internet connection, get the best price then have it delivered to my door by my "local" UPS dude. Too many times I have made three/four stops looking for specific items only to be told,"We can order it for you . . ."

kernal 7 years, 7 months ago

I pick up the phone and call. If they don't have it, on-line is where I go next.

Coming soon from the nanny state, all items sharper than a banana will be banned.

Tom McCune 7 years, 7 months ago

There is no local. It doesn't exist any more.

kernal 7 years, 7 months ago

There are local jobs and that's primarily what I think of when buying local. I admit I do over fifty percent of my shopping on line because I cannot find what I want, or need, in Lawrence. But I do try here first. Also, because my idea of a good time is Not driving to KC to go shopping, unless there's the promise of really good food included in the trip.
