    If you EDC a Swiss Army Knife, which model to you carry and why?

    My favorite SAK is the Victorinox Bantam (I love love love this knife), which I've EDC'd for close to a year now, but I think I'm going to move up to a farmer. I have a Craftsman, and one of my most-used tools was the wood saw... something I can have in a much smaller package with the farmer. I also want to move up to an alox SAK, but I really don't like the look of silver-the farmer comes in blue and red as well.

    Farmer and a Classic. Classic provides leisure tools the Farmer is missing (nail file, toothpick, tweezers), so technically the Farmer is the main model.

    I still carry on occasion my SAK camper. Same knife that closed on my finger when I was in scouts. Its a rare day I carry a slip joint unless I am carving now.

    Wenger classic 13, pretty much the same as the Victorinox camper except it has a nailfile instead of a small blade.

    Same for me. I have the red Alox Farmer (and two NIB stored away) and I can't imagine having a better SAK.

    Either the Wenger Hardwoos 13, or the Victorinox Explorer for EDC.

    Oh and I ALWAYS carry a Victorinox Rally in my back pocket.

    I carry an Alox Soldier in my pocket every day because it is small, rugged, and does not scare the :censored: in the office.

    Compact most of the time, as it's two layers and has an eyeglass screwdriver (my most used tool). Orange Alox Classic SD on my keys (Christmas present from SWMBO so must be seen to be used ;)) and if I'm likely to use a firesteel I take a red Pioneer as the awl gives massive sparks. :)

    Victorinox Cadet - because I love the color (green) and it has just the tools I use the most.

    At work I carry either a Camper or OHT. Off duty I carry a SwissChamp and occassionally a Yeoman. These tools give me all the options I need for whatever may come along in my day O0
