    Yep, that would be the perfect EDC for me too. Maybe someday Victorinox will bring this one back, but I'm not holding my breath. In the interim, the Executive cab be handy.

    How about a Pioneer-X? I think it'd cover your tool needs, but it would be heavier than a Cadet of course.

    L'chaim!

    I tried one, and it's a nice piece, but while the Cadet disappears in your pocket, the Pioneer is more of a brick. By the time I'm carrying a Pioneer, I'd just as soon carry a Spirit X, which is even more functional.

    I felt the same way. For me, the additional tools of the Pioneer over the Cadet just didn't justify how much bigger, chunkier and heavier it is to pocket carry.

    I can see how you guys might feel that way. Although when I'm wearing jeans (MOST of the time!), a Pioneer or for that matter a Farmer don't bother me. But then I always carry these at the end of a P7 dangler, with the result they just hang along the seam of the pocket and don't really add any bulk. For me at least.

    L'chaim!

    The P7, and probably any dangler type of thingy, does make a real difference in how a SAK carries. I rarely carry one with out using the P7.

    I don't have a P7, but diy'ed a bent fork handle. It works great and makes my Explore/aaa Olight a wonderful combo. The sad thing is that I rarely feel the need to switch out knives:(
