Yes it is  :D.

But it's my favorite SAK to fiddle with these days, the 85mm size, the width, the clean looking backside with only springs and (almost) no tools.  Which some people say is a con on this SAK, but I don't really miss the backside tools you find on the Swisschamp for example.  And I really like the magnifying glass on the 85mm Vics (and Wengers).

And I found this one (and a second one, since I like having one mint in box for the collection) at a nice discount, which makes it even better  :D.

Just ordered a Vic Evolution 28 yesterday, since the S54 is a bit over the top for EDC, but when I go on a hike, or on vacation, the S54 will go with me  ;).

Umpf...

I have no idea what SAK to take on my next holiday.

Then again, I don't know where to go yet either...
If it's a trip to the mountains, it'll be the Outrider and something else.

Ah well. We'll see.
Have you got a non-changing EDC TG?

I usualy got the Compact on me, but the Evo18 is calling me as well lately.

My EDC consists of a plier based tool and my Vic Swisschamp.  These last couple of weeks the plier based tool was mostly my Surge or my Wave +, in the past this spot has been filled by my ST300, Rebar, Charge AL, Spirit and Swisstool, but the Swisschamp has been in my EDC since I bought it back in 2011. 

For the story about my first SAK, and a bit later, my first Swisschamp, click here, just read it again and it's a fun thread, bought my first SAK on March 31, bought a second one on April 11, and so it begins ...

When I go on vacation I'll carry my Swisschamp in my pocket (attached to my belt with a vic belt clip) and my Swisstool in a sheath on my belt, since the Swisstool is legal in most of Europe, and is a very non-threatening looking tool.  I always carry some other tools in my camera bag (Signal, Rebar or ST300, ...), but those are mostly there to take a pic from something else than from my Swisschamp and Swisstool ... (and to have a plier with replaceable cutters).

Anyway, because the Swisschamp has been in my EDC since 2011, I thought it was time for a change, that's why I ordered the Vic Evolution 28 yesterday  :D.

I like the 85mm models, I think I have about ten of them. My favorite is the Wenger S17 BSA Forester.

I recently picked up this serrated Wenger Highlander.  It’s like a combination of the Vic Small Tinker and Sportsman.  Handy little knife that’s going into the carry rotation.

Wenger Evogrip 54 this evening for the sheer novelty of it. Feeling guilty it's sitting in a Vic pouch   :think:
