Poll: A Cadet + Scissors = Super Cadet, or Cadet X?
« on: September 05, 2018, 08:45:46 PM »
I recently highlighted my project to mod an otherwise garden-variety Cadet by adding scissors from an 84 mm Golfer to it.  I started out calling it a Cadet X because of the Pioneer X naming convention.  But it occurred to me that when Victorinox added scissors to a Tinker, they named that knife a Super Tinker, and not Tinker X.   So I think Super Cadet might also fit in this case.  What do you think? 

If you don't visit the Mod Squad sub-forum all that often and would like to see the pictures of my project, you can do so here:  https://forum.multitool.o...ex.php/topic,78662.0.html

And here is a picture of the finished SAK:



Thanks for voting!

I voted Super Cadet, only because it has a nice ring to it.  And it could wear a cape...  :2tu:

Nice Mod by the way!  :cheers:

Nice job on the peening!

I voted Cadet X.  However, if Vic builds them I could careless what they call them  :gimme:

I voted Super Cadet for your great mod. 
I would guess/like Vic to call it a Cadet X.  As previously expressed in this thread, I just want Vic to build them, and they can call them whatever they want.

I'm with Smiller on this! While I already voted Cadet X, I was thinking of a general name for it if Vic produced it in mass. For your awesome mod, Super Cadet seems quite fitting.

It's alox, so I'm saying Cadet X

To be 'super' it would surely have to be a celidor + scissors? Super sportsman?

This is great you guys!  So fun to hear of everyone's reasoning for their name preference.  :)

I wish the blasted 84 mm scissors weren't so dang hard to come by.   I'd like to have one of these Super Cadet X's in every color!

So it is a cross between a Voyageur and an Alumnus. Built out of a Cadet.

That brings to mind a completely different logic. The Alumnus has ended their schooling and is no longer truly a Cadet, but they may still have to undergo a trial or journey to test their mettle before they are truely an adult. A quest as it were.

The Argonaut? Or Ulysses?

Cadet X :) it seems the name of an evil superhero. Super Cadet seems more a good one.

Alox gets the X designation, Celidor the Super designation. That’s based on Vic practices though.

Call it what you like best!  :tu:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Learned something new

Tbh when I put sportsman I knew I wasn't right but it was the first 84mm with a nail file I could think of to demonstrate my point

... So, super alumnus or Cadet X depending on if its alox or celidor... So what if it had wooden scales ;)

... and an Alumnus doesn't correlate with the Cadet with scissors, as only one of them has back tools.

Oh, and a Super Alumnus would have two pairs of scissors  :rofl:
