There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

Nice photo!

I have a blue Farmer as well but so far haven't taken any photos of it.

Thanks for sharing!

I bough a Pioneer back when I was new to SAKs. It was my EDC for quite a while. Even had my name engraved on it...
Then, I discovered the Farmer. I didn't even know those existed or I would have gotten that instead of the Pioneer!
Well, now that I EDC a Craftsman and prefer the tool set on those larger, multi-layer SAKs, I'm afraid I can't justify getting a Farmer. I've wanted one for years, but I don't think I'd carry it now. Is there any real point to getting one if it may never see use?
I don't consider myself a collector; I'm a user.

Oh, one other thought/question. When I think of survival, I think of shelter building and the necessity of a saw. Anyone else wonder why the US military didn't include a saw in their knives. I'm disappointed with that. I'm sure there were patents to consider, etc but the USGI pocket knives just seem so inferior to the Victorinox. I have a Camillus GI "camp knife". This is a pic of the type I have.


Anyone else disappointed with the US government's offering?

I've been preferring the farmer lately.  I hardly ever carry more than three layers, and even three layer cellidors are pushing it as far as thickness for me. 

I didn't get the Farmer at first but now I'm diggin it   :tu:

Get one, TY! You don't always want to carry that thick craftsman just for a saw :D

The Victorinox 1961 model Soldier knife, which was made until 2007, had the same tools as the Camilus U.S. knife, and no saw. So...  :shrug:

Also, I have a Farmer with plain silver alox scales. It is the knife i probably have least actualy NEED for, and yet, I simply can't part with it, because it is a beautiful beast, somehow seeming smaller than the 91mm Camper, but MUCH heavier built.
