Official Pioneer Owner’s Club!
on: October 20, 2019, 06:13:57 PM
My love of the pioneer is no secret around these parts, so imagine my surprise when looking at the SAK clubs thread that there was not a pioneer club on the list!  :ahhh

So, let remedy that!

Rumor has it that the first pioneer descended through the mists of the Swiss alps in the year 1957, immediately raising the bar for what a pocket knife could and should be. From the sleek equal end pattern, the robust scales, the almost perfect selection of tools (not too much, not too little) to the great feel in hand, the pioneer has become the standard by which others are judged (at least to me! ;) )

It became the basis for many popular variants from the forum favorite Farmer, the 1961 soldier model, the electrician, harvester, solo and even to the more recent X model. Each variant only adding to the storied history of this fine pocket knife pattern.

So let’s kick this off. Share pictures of your pioneers and join me in celebrating the best knife ever made!

Does the Pioneer X get included, or just the plain Pioneer?

I was thinking just the pioneer since there’s a pioneer X club. But hey, we love ‘em all around here, so  :tu:

Seems a little unwieldy for pocket carry. Maybe in a sheath  :think:

Here’s what I have left. I sold my black Swiss Bianco Pioneer X and my blue SAKC Pioneer X and my custom Pioneer with stonewashed tools and liners.

The Pioneer is what I measure every other pocket knife by. It has all the tools I must have and nothing I can't get by without.
 
My favorite thing of all is that the Pioneer still looks and feels like a pocket knife and not a multi tool. Often when I carry an SAK I feel over burdened with too many layers and bulk, and that's when I'll drop the Pioneer in my pocket. I'll sometimes miss the scissors on my PX but the classic takes care of that.
 
 Here's to you humble Pioneer :salute:
