I didn't know that. How many knife makers are there in Switzerland?
Today ? Or in the past ? Knives makers for the Army or only for civilian people ?
Those in the past or present. I mean, what manufacturers, other than Victorinox and Wenger, have been under contract to make those items for the army? Are there variations in the knives, as there were between the V and W products, that might be of interest to collectors?.
For Swiss Soldiers knives from 1890 to 2017, you should see this web site : http://www.couteaux-du-soldat-suisse.ch
It's one of the best serious about history and manufacturers...
For other Swiss knives (civilian), you can find the last most important knives makers in Switzerland on the web... Follow the links :
Some others may exist, but I don't know all !
The perfect EDC SAK for me is the climber. Great balance between slim and having the everyday implements needed. I feel it has all the basic tools without any specialized tools such as the saw or fish scaler for example. These items would be more suited for outdoor adventures more so than everyday occurrences. I don’t use scissors that often but when needed the full size pair is handy. My preference is the corkscrew over the Phillips. My wife and I drink wine so it’s nice to have as a backup and the fact that it holds the small screwdriver is a bonus. I’ve found the T handle Phillips just isn’t that convenient. I can get by using the can opener for a lot of Phillip screws. As far as the hook goes, it’s kind of take it or leave it. It doesn’t add another layer to the knife so why not have it even though I very seldom (if ever) use it. I must say though after seeing a post showing a video of various uses for the hook it might see more use.... One final comment, toothpick and tweezers are a must which leaves out Alox models.

Cybertool 34. It gets used at least twice a week for something.
Depends on your needs. I for one carry a farmer and a classic (both alox). Best of both worlds

Those scales! Very nice
Good taste I have climber as my pocket carry, I popped and added a set of yellow Bianco plus scales. What a great knife by far one of my favorites.
These are my SAKs, usually paired for EDC: the OH Trekker for outdoors activities; a Swisschamp, once the only SAK I owned, now mostly comes along when traveling; Super Tinker for out and around; Sportsman for evenings or "minimal" moods; and the Manager always occupies my 5th pocket, attached to a Photon Freedom micro light. I've had these a good long time and am very fond of them.
Victorinox Camper or my Mechanic.
Both with titanium Swiss Bianco scales.

At least for the first half of the week, I'm toting my Fieldmaster.

The same one i would carry in the field... my favorite SAK so far is the Pioneer, it gets carried most days now
Because the scissors are awesome, of course.
The SwissChamp is my favorite SAK.
I edc the Compact and think it is a great basic Urban EDC SAK. Other SAKs have more features but for me a blade, scissors, bottle opener, screwdriver are my most frequently used tools in the urban environment. Most compacts also come with a pen, but mine did not because of the Gadsden scales.
I'd rather have the pen and fly my flag elsewhere. For me, function has priority over decoration. But I do have a Manager with a Boy Scout emblem, which I bought only a few years ago because the actual Scout knife I got at age 12 was not the "official" version. It was a Camp King, identical to the Scout logo one, but $1.50 cheaper. I got along fine with it, but always had the nagging notion that maybe I should have sprung for the actual BSA knife. The Manager scratched that itch well enough, so I can check that bit of unfinished business off my bucket list .
I bought online and did not realize at the time that this one did not come with the pen. I’m considering getting another with the pen because it is a nice to have, but for now I just carry a separate keychain pen.
I’m planning to add the following for my EDC options:
Cybertool 34 or 41
Just picked up a used Rambler for my key chain from eBay for $10 including shipping.

That should do it for you. But I kind of like the idea of having it all in one little package with a micro light attached as a fob, carried in my 5th pocket.
For me it is the Signature
