@ VICMAN. Being a dealer must have been like a kid in a candy store, minus the business aspect of course. Cant fault you on the Swisschamp. Its really a wonderful SAK. The Executive is one of those SAKs that either you bond with or dont. Its a strong contender for one of the neatest SAKs from Vic.
@ Serena. Nice story. Heres a link to SAKWIKI which I believe is your knife. If you have T&T the could be one of the variations. http://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Commander

I have to admit it was fun having access to any SAK in the line at dealer cost. I agree about the Executive.When I was a Victorinox dealer I let my dad choose any Vic he wanted and he chose a black Executive. It was his favorite EDC knife.It took me participating in the Executive Challenge to finally realize what a great knife the Executive is.
As a newly indoctrinated executive fan, (July 18th) I can vouch for the usefulness of the exec as a EDC pocket knife for modern suburbia. Its a great little coin pocket size pocket knife with a few small tools for light duty. Teamed up with a few flat little tools in the wallet like a Victorinox quarto and a P-38 can opener, its good for most of what you will run into in a civilized environment. Or you can drop a Leatherman squirt in the left hand pocket with the keys and change and you have tools available.
Going to necrobump this thread because it has something I have been thinking about.I had not carried a knife in 20 years and decided I wanted to start carrying one again and thought about how useful a Swiss Army Knife would be. After doing some research I decided on the Super Tinker mainly because of the scissors. I liked the Super Tinker but decided to try a regular Tinker and a Classic SD. I came to find out that I missed the big scissors and that the backside Phillips was limited and somewhat redundant because of the can opener. I think I have found my EDC for now and hopefully for a while which is a Climber and a Classic SD, I like having the corkscrew and the little Classic grew on me and I consider it a awesome back up to a bigger SAK. Anyway just some thought.
That's a nice combo. The Climber is one of my favourites. Sometimes you just need a small blade/scissors, the Classic is more than enough for it, no need to bring out the big guns. When the task is a litle more demanding, the Climber takes care of it.
Sometimes I feel like the Soldier and LM Micra combo that i used for a few years was the plateau in my evolution. Since then, ive tried various ways to incorporate scissors into my EDC. While I’m mostly settled on the Pioneer X, I keep looking at other ways to get the same tool set. Nothing seems to feel quite right.
