My Plus scale Explorer
(Image removed from quote.)

Maybe the name "Explorer" invites people to go all out on them? Like a subconscious nudge..

I don't know. I think the older glass magnifier model may need a name change to the Torturer, or perhaps the Masochist.

With a bit of luck, the next old style Explorer I have coming in will be in great condition. I envision it with green plus scales, which I have on order, and being dedicated to outdoor use in my backpack.

I did get in a new style Explorer yesterday, which I'll be equipping with yellow plus scales when they arrive. I've always wanted to carry a bright yellow SAK, so this is finally my chance.  :woohoo:

I really like the toolset on the Explorer.  I find myself using the magnifying glass more and more for the fine print on labels and other stuff.  The inline phillips is also heavily used and better than the phillips on the back or the can opener tip. 

Although I do have to confess the Explorer has not been seeing a lot of carry since I managed to get my hands on a Yeoman.  The width difference just makes the Yeoman a nicer fit for pocket carry.

Not plus scales, but how is this Explorer for a yellow SAK?

The yellow Explorer looks awesome!!!!

I took the opportunity to pocket the best of my older Explorers today. It's a bit beat up, but still quite serviceable.

The primary reason I got myself an Explorer: old man eyes.  ;)
