For some years I've carried a tinker alone in my pocket and leatherman in my bag (started with a core, then a wave, now a skeletool). I am SUPER excited for my fleabay Explorer to arrive, and have taken to carrying a classic around my neck after I gave several as gifts for a multi-scout Eagle scout Ceremony. Each scout got one in what was my best guess at their favorite color, reminding me to dig up my classic red that rode on my keychain for years after I found it half-buried at a campground (naturally... when I was a scout. And yes, of course, I asked around to ensure it wasn't lost by any of my fellow camper's, Scout's honor!). My SAK tastes are broadening these days!

It's easy to happen.

Which SAKs are on your radar?

Presently automobile, engineer, grand prix, modeler, mountaineer... Pretty much things with a metal file, inline phillips, or preferably both! I've got a passing interest too in models with electronics in the scales. I've been slowly expanding the collection as I hit good auction prices, but I can't say I have a really good focus on anything in particular. I'm beyond set for EDC, work, camping, and social event-tools. what I NEED to do is quit spending money... haha

I know that feeling too  :facepalm:

But I sell off some here and there

The coolest one I have with the metal file is the Trail Guide which is basically a Compact + metal file

Sweet! My "agrolinz" branded explorer arrived this evening and I am in love with the inline screwdriver. I'm usually not eager to carry a 4-layer tool, my huntsman only ever sees use when camping. However I think I could get accustomed to having one in my pocket. The beauty and the bane of this hobby is that there are so many choices available  :gimme: :gimme:
I wish I had nieces, nephews, etc. to pass along my "surplus" tools to.

Had a SAK crisis last night.  Needed a pen for the sushi menu and I was like "no problem" .... forgetting I was sporting a Farmer and a classic ->  NO PEN!!!!   :ahhh

I use the pen awl the time.  For my purposes, "The Greatest SAK Combo" must include a pen.   I corrected my err today and replaced the Classic with the Manager.  If that Classic wants to see any more pocket time, he'll have to do a ride-along with a 91mm/plus scales.

Just replaced my Classic with a new Signature. Together with the Pioneer, incredible combo. Caught way too many times without a pen. No issues now.

Here's a great bushcraft and ropework combination.
Fits perfectly into a Leatherman Molle pouch.

With israelpiper´s picture gone (thanks smurfBucket) I thought it nice to show this combo. Hunter and Helmsman -- two awls but no other redundancies.
(Probably easier to carry and use than the ObiChamp too)  :D.

2 XAVTs? one for each side to maintain balance. OR one XAVT, and 15 classics, again for weight distribution  :rofl:

You got me curious how many classics it would actually take to balance out an XAVT, so I did the math. According to the sakwiki an XAVT weighs in at 351g. The wiki doesn't list the weight for the Classic SD so I googled around a bit and from a few product pages I gathered it weighs roughly 21g. 21/351=16.7. So 16.7 Classics would weigh as much as one XAVT. Your guess of 15 was impressively close!  :tu:

I used the Victorinox USA website's listed weights and while I don't recall the figures, came up to 15.5 ish Classic SDs to make an XAVT  :tu:
