The Swiza TT03 Tick Tool tick remover is a Swiss Army knife with – next to the normal army knife tools – also has an integrated tick remover with magnifying glass. Read the news!
It is raining cats and dogs but when it rains and if all goes as is should, most ticks are still hidden between the grass and under leaves that fell to ground last autumn. And yet… Swiza starts talking about their Swiza TT03 Tick Tool.
Ticks seem – thanks to the milder winters – to become active earlier every year. And let’s be honest: if the sun comes out in a few weeks, the tick will probably be early again this year. A tick can be a carrier of the cause of Lyme disease. Although we are now in the midst of the Corona epidemic, Lyme is certainly something you should know something about and a typical Dutch saying applies: prevention is better than cure. More about ticks and Lyme (in Dutch) here.
Exactly for that reason, I think that tick removal tool should be standard equipment to anyone when you are going outside; the sooner you remove it, the smaller the chance of the nasty consequences of Lyme. With the Swiza, the chance of forgetting the tick remover is certainly a lot smaller.
The tick remover is a transparent tool that has a kind of V at the end. The V goes around the tick and then pull or flip the tick out of your skin. In addition, the Tick Tool contains a magnifying glass so that you can clearly see whether you have completely removed the tick. Also view the instructional video below.

The pocket knife is more than a tick remover: it has an awl with eye (so that you can also make rough stitching), a bottle opener, a flat screwdriver, tweezers, a knife with a blade of 70 mm and the corkscrew that – in my opinion – is required for every pocket knife. The Swiza TT03 with a red plastic grip and tick remover was already on the market last year, the versions with a grip in walnut and olive wood are new. The price of these versions is € 79.95. The plastic version is available from € 38.50.
