@ 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.   

I have to admit it was fun having access to any SAK in the line at dealer cost. :D

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.

@ 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
Yes, I think that's the one!!! Thank you very much…

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.

Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

I agree that the Executive will handle most daily needs, but I still always have a SwissChamp on me, I have carried one since they first came out and still have occasion to use the saw, file, in-line phillips, pliers, awl, hook, fine screwdriver in the corkscrew, and scaler where I work part-time.

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.   :salute:

 :like:.  Having a 58mm is really nice.  Its a capable companion and on it own.  I love the Tinker and Recruit without bad side tools.  The Climber is a nice option.

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.

Soldier and Ps4 is a fine combo, too.
