    I didn't know that. How many knife makers are there in Switzerland?

    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?.

    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.

    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.

    Super Tinker!

    Because the scissors are awesome, of course.
