    I love carrying the Pioneer , more than the Farmer ... even though the Farmer is not so much larger and heavier ... but every time I carry the Pioneer I need the saw ...

    How do you people live with these options? :)

    I actually just got my first pioneer yesterday. So far I like it a lot. Honestly I don't think I have ever actually needed a saw.

    Pioneer X since I use scissors far more than a saw and I always have a multi tool with a saw on me anyway. Prior to the X coming out, I carried a Pioneer or Soldier most of the time

    How do I live with these options? By having pants with more than one pocket. No law says you can't carry both. And a few others as well.

    My vote was Farmer for the saw. I use the saw way more often than I even think about using scissors. I'm pretty sure I use a corkscrew more often than scissors.

    I'll second the pioneer x. For me it's the perfect edc sak. I have a farmer too but just don't have much use for a saw in my day to day.

    You could always get a huntsman and call it a day

    I use the Pioneer X.
    I very rarely need a saw in day to day use.
    If I'm going out into the woods I have a different pocket load.

    I've got the PX as well but I must say I really dislike it - the only Vic I regret buying - in fact I'm selling it right now.EDIT: SOLD.
    The nailnick position really annoys the *beep* outta me ... :(

    And I do have the Huntsman but I've developed symptoms of the alox pox ... :D

    What I want, and there is sweet FA chance that Victorinox will produce it, is an Alox with Saw and sissors. It would sell very well indeed.

    Been a fan of the Farmer for twenty years and have a few on the cars and daypack for outdoor activities, for EDC I find the need for scissors to out weight the need for a saw.

    Farmers hands down.
    Much more comfortable in hand, and the saw is a plus for me.
    Have always one in my pockets.
    And other 32 in collection... ;-)

    I carry the Pioneer daily just because I like the look and feel. I used to carry a medium stockman daily ( sometimes still do) but the Pioneer is the same size with more options. I carry a Farmer when hiking because I'm always looking for new growth saplings to cut for the walking sticks I make.

    I carry the pioneer because it is smaller/lighter. For everyday edc I don't need the saw. If I'm in the bush I usually have a dedicated saw or MT with a woodsaw on it.
