Weight 126g.  Manufactured in Switzerland by the famous 'Swiss Army Knife' company Victorinox and supplied to the RAF by GQ Parachutes as part of their contracts for the provision of parachute and aircrew survival equipment.  Essentially this is a specially procured version of the 'Hunter' model with red polyamide grips, 1 x large stainless steel blade, 1 x bottle/can opener, wire stripper, 5mm flat head screwdriver, 1 x small gutting blade, 1 x reamer/punch, corkscrew, wood saw, tweezers, toothpick and key ring/lanyard ring.
