Since I started carrying my Leatherman Knifeless Fuse, I haven't EDCed a SAK (Victorinox and Wenger are SAKs). However, when I did, it was a Victorinox Recruit. So I would have to say my favorite was a Recruit as that is what I carried around with me at all times (albeit for a few brief months).

Here is a photo of my old EDC with my leather scaled Recruit on the keychain.

Champion, pre-1987.  My first SAK I ever bought.  I have owned 5: the first one was stolen   :'(, replacement retired as I used it in Iraq, third one NIB, fourth one is my EDC (bought used in Korea at pawn shop), and 5th one is an 1884-1984 commemorative one.

I think my fave is my First Mate - it was the first collectable piece I owned, and the first Alox too  :drool:

My favorite is still my climber, the stay glow one.  It wasn't my first SAK but it was an incredible gift from some very nice guys.  I had a climber with the regular red scales and am still partial to it.  Followed very closely by my red cadet (another gift) and the Explorer is climbing high on the list. But I think the Climber will always be my first love.

I editted the title for you.  Victorinox is often referred to as SAK for some reason.

I think it has to be my cellidor Woodsman although I have a lot of contenders for the title.

Can't say there is one overall favorite.

For primary EDC at work, it's my Cybertimer 41 (modded Cybertool 41 with timekeeper scales).  It does 99% of the tasks I need at the hospital.

For keychain, it's the Alox Rambler (Rambler really).  Excellent phillips and flat drivers, bottle opener and useful small blade.

Out on the farm, I carry a modded Locksmith (OHO Locksmith).  Tough, tough tool and an excellent companion to a pair of pliers or Pliers based MT.

For dress/parties either a Farmer (if outdoors affair, where I might need the saw) or my modded Soldier (with scissors).  Beautiful functional jewelery.

I used to carry my Wenger S557 on the farm, but in the short time I've owned it, it's been back to WengerNA twice.  Useful tools, wonderful locking blade, but not quite up to the rigors of farm work like the Vic Locksmith.
