This one shows some potential. Climber and Rally.

Jeep the SAK of the auto world or is it SAK the Jeep of the Knife world?

That's certainly a contender for GSC.     That Rally is great.  It's the ultimate compliment to a corkscrew/scissor SAK  :tu:

Does the Victorinox web site have an error in the manager's description?
If I'm not mistaken, according to SAK wiki, the manager DOES NOT have a toothpick, as it has the pen instead. However on the Vic site it lists toothpick.

I believe that the Manager comes with both, so you can take your pick between the toothpick and the tweezers, choose which one to put in the single slot available. :think:

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

Small knives do what big knives do, just slower.

My Manager only came with the tweezers.  I had a spare pic that I put in there instead.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Sounds like whether it comes with tweezers or not, you have to pick 2 of the 3, tweezers, pen, or toothpick.
It is a mistake then I think on the Vic website ...

The pen comes standard on the Manager.  Without the pen, it's a Rambler.  I'm pretty sure you'll get tweezers with it and positive that you'll get the pen.

Got it this_is_nascar. That's what I was led to believe that you don't get a toothpick on purchase. My point was, even if they do supply a toothpick in the box, you can't carry all three with you, (I mean the SAK is not designed to do that, only 2 holes in the scales).
So, I am assuming the Vic website has an error on it, see how anal I am? ha ha :ahhh

Some may consider this excessive (not RoSchro of course, I just don't need a saw at work).  Realistically though, keeping the 91 & 93mm in the fifth pocket is pretty MANAGEable. :cheers:

Here is my EDC combo. It covers 99% of my every day needs. The most used tools are opened.
On a USB stick are stored soft-sopies of all my documents and there is a kit of some portable software for any needs.
Thereby, I have three SAKs: two hardware and one software.

My first post ever on the forums, so... HI EVERYBODY! :salute:


I think this combo has not been suggested so far, but it's been my pocket EDC for the last few months.
(Maybe it's a world first, dunno  :P)

Lumberjack + Rambler

Pros:
- Very slim (Lumberjack 8mm thick, Rambler 10.5mm)
- Lightweight (71gr total)
- Minimal redundancy (only cap lifter/wire stripper is redunant really)
- Woodsaw & scissors! in a package that weighs the same as a Pioneer

Cons:
- Light duty... especially when it comes to the drivers
- The Lumberjack is not a regular production knife

Pardon the dark, uninspiring pic.


Welcome, Bamba!
Awesome combo and first post!   I may include lack of awl and corkscrew in the cons list, but still, great combo!

Thank you and the previous posters for the warm welcome  :cheers:
Yeah I had to give up SOMETHING... for the weight it still has a nice array of the "core" tools in SAKs. I dig the awl though.

Nice first post Bamba! Welcome. Is the Lumberjack something you made yourself?  :cheers:

Thanks for the welcome magentus,
Nope the lumberjack (in alox) used to be a production knife (not sure the history), SwissBianco sold quite a few runs of those in the last few years.
However Victorinox re-issued the same knife in 2014 I think, renamed as the "Walker" (cellidor only, of course).
They go quite cheap, and I think they make great minimalist hiking/backpacking SAKs.

I'm getting more use out of this Rally then I thought I would. I'm finding it pairs well with a lot of different SAK's. Like the Swisschamp.

Honestly I very seldom use my 58mm scissors any way, Just need to make a Rally signature... or maybe I could take care of that issue myself  :think:

This thing is definitely showing me the 58mm line has something to offer in usefulness. And sometimes less is really more.

Don't get me wrong I still prefer the 65mm line of tools but that little Phillips driver is almost perfect EDC size.

If only the 58mm line had a jewelers screw driver and awl. :think:

And then you get older..... and the facial/nasal hair develop a mind and growth rate of their own.... and plan a takeover.... and suddenly the nimble 58mm scissors are your best friend 😁

I don't know that this is the "greatest" combo ever, but it is my favorite combo. I carry this combination (Solider, Classic SD) more than any other.
