Mon, 10 Oct 2005 09:21:40 GMTStill crafted in the village of Ibach, Switzerland, Swiss Army knives have been known for their quality and craftsmanship since they were introduced more than 100 years ago. This specialized golf tool with accompanying range finder has specific features that will come in handy on the green, and it is the ideal gift for golfers looking to improve their game. The 3-1/2-inch-long pocket tool incorporates eight tools into the traditional red plastic casing: a blade, scissors, a nail file, a bottle opener, a toothpick, tweezers, a removable ball marker with the Swiss Army logo on it, and a retractable divot repair tool that opens and closes by pressing a golf-ball-shaped button. A synthetic pouch for the golf tool is included and clips onto a belt loop or a golf bag for easy carrying.
The separate 3-1/2-inch long ranger scope offers 38-inch and 1000-yard views of the green and eliminates the guesswork on how far it is to the flagpole. Golfers look through the monocular scope and line up the bottom of the flagpole with the bottom horizontal line marked "Green." The top of the flagpole viewed through the scope marks how far golfers are from the flagpole in yards and meters. The golf scope is covered in rubber to protect it from damage and comes with a soft-sided case and belt clip. The Swiss Army golf tool is covered by a full lifetime product warranty and the ranger is covered by a lifetime limited warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde
Mon, 10 Oct 2005 09:21:40 GMTAn ideal gift for a golfer, the flask in this set holds 7 ounces of fortification for when the weather's nippy and courage for when the course is playing longer than it should. The highly polished, stainless-steel flask comes in a handsome, brown, oil-tanned leather case with brass hardware. The case has a loop to fit on a belt, and both the case and the flask are curved to fit comfortably against a hip or manly chest. Four wood tees fit into loops on the case's front. Completing the set are two 1-ounce cups so the flask's contents can be shared (or measured into a cocktail glass) and a funnel for filling the flask without wasting a precious drop of 20-year-old Scotch. Another nice touch: the flask's cap is attached to a lever so the cap can't be lost. Inside its case, the flask measures 5-1/4 inches high and 4 inches wide. Removed from the case, the flask is 1/4 inch smaller in both dimensions. --Fred Brack
Mon, 10 Oct 2005 09:21:40 GMTGolf lovers will enjoy eating and serving this gourmet gift pack decorated with jaunty designs by artist Guy Buffet. The crispy sesame water crackers pair wonderfully with both the beef salami and the creamy Camembert cheese spread. The Parmesan pretzels make a great snack on the fairway or off, and come in a 5-1/2-inch square tin printed with a motley crew of Guy Buffet golfers. After a long day on the green, tired golfers might enjoy relaxing with a vanilla biscotti and a cup of Columbian Supremo coffee in the large mug sporting two golfer portraits. A box of fruit and nut mix and a set of Guy Buffet napkins rounds out the package. All items arrive artfully arranged in an 18-5/8-by-8-1/2-by-3-inch rustic cream-colored wood tray, festively tied with autumnal raffia. --Maile Bohlmann
