I voted for the explorer.  It has all the tools that I use most frequently while still being just about pocketable for me.  In truth though I would really like to get my hands on a scientist and that would be the model I would make if I ever get into this modding lark.  :sak:

I'm thinking about buying a swisscard lite just for the magnifying glass, for those times when I'm carrying a different SAK.  I use the magnifying glass all the time and I couldn't do without it now.  It's really handy for reading tiny writing like the embossed expiry dates on drug packets, and I also use it to check the edge when I'm sharpening knife blades.

That is an application I had not thought of!  :tu:

Deluxe Tinker.

the Huntsman is a close second, but pliers are more useful to me than a saw.

I have one and use it all the time. At around 2 ounces, it's not light, but it's made of metal/glass and pretty durable. Put a little dab of loktite on the screws and you'll be good to go.

Thanks for the tip.   :cheers:  Looks like a smart bit of kit.  I might just get one of those instead.  Decisions, decisions...   :-\

Also, the 'fresnel lens' has some fans around here, might be good to look into those, too ;) Usually fits in a wallet.

No prizes for guessing my vote.
But really surprised by the results.
Would not have expdected the Explorer to be so far ahead and thought that the Phillips brigade would push the Tinker higher!!

PS. Yes and what about the Wengers?? You are all too Viccy biased!!
Loving my Evogrip 18 at the moment!!

 :ahhh
I repeat,  :ahhh  :D

My inability to answer this question (torn between the Huntman, the Mountaineer and the Deluxe Climber) lead me to buying a Vic Ranger (main user at home) and a Handyman (my bag EDC).

Since I had to vote for one, I went with the Huntsman. The metal file on the Mountaineer offers much greater versatility, I know. I find that both these SAKs have a perfect size for me to handle comfortably. Still, it had to be the Huntsman for me, don't ask me why.

Even if it weren't discontinued, I think I'd pass on the D.Climber -too thick and limited uses of those pliers for me.
I'm a little surprised to see this current lifting the Explorer so high.  :tool:

I voted for other

From the SAKWiki list, I would probably choose the Swiss Bianco CyberYeoman but that's not stock. The two tools I need the most are PH0/1 driver (and not as back layer tool) and metal file. None of the 4 layer tools combines the two.
