The Big Throwdown! Vic Farmer vs Wenger Cascade
« on: June 16, 2009, 03:34:56 AM »
I've been carrying my Wenger Cascade on my keychain.  Very pocketable, handy tools and locking main blade.  It suddenly struck me that it's actually very close to the Vic Farmer. 

Vic Farmer:  Main blade (non-locking),  "angle iron" style awl, saw, cap lifter/large driver and can opener/small driver. (Basically a Soldier with a saw)

Wenger Cascade:  LOCKING main blade, small clip point blade*, saw, cap lifter/large driver, can opener/small driver, square awl, corkscrew, tweezers and toothpick

The Farmer is slightly longer


but they are approximately the same thickness


Here's a picture of the tools of each out for comparison


For those who haven't seen it before, here's a poor picture of the lock button.  Push it down and it unlocks the main blade



The Cascade is lighter than the Farmer  But then there are the intangibles.  In the hand, the Farmer has a more natural, comfortable feel.  It doesn't seem like that should be so, but personally, that's how it feels. 

I prefer the Cascade on my keychain because it is lighter and it has that wonderful locking blade.

Quality wise, they seem equivalent to this observer.

Nice review. I think I have a red alox farmer on its way. Now I can't wait to get it.

You forgot to say that the Farmer was the single greatest knife in all of creation, other than that it was a fine review mate :tu:

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

I've been carrying my Farmer instead of my Tinker for a few days now, at first I did miss the T&T but then I slung a classic on my keys and he presto!

Ha isn't that the truth. I have to refer to the email just to see what I DID order!  :think:

You can bet your star that the Vic MTs will get a review comparison all their own.  >:D :D
