I bought a new SAK today.  I went to the mom and pops hardware store out of boredom today and I seen a sak that I have been thinking about getting for a while.  I bought a new Explorer.  I got it for cheaper than I could get it online and it was already there.  So I thought it was a good idea.  I have always desired the magnifying glass feature. 

Anyway, I was wondering what is yall's favorite SAK, and why.  I like the 4 layer 91mm format.  It is the right blend of size and # of tools.  I have liked the explorer for some time and it just so happens there was one down the street.  What a great knife.  So, what is your favorite SAK?


I have only one. Victorinox Bundeswehr ,chosen after long investigation (tight budget). It is my EDC and for urban area is enough.

Bundeswehr is the German Army, and the Victorinox Bundeswehr is the knife created for the German military.  Currently, it is the same model as the One Handed Trekker except it has the German Army crest on it, and OD scales that don't have the toothpick or tweezers since a soldier is just likely to lose them in the field.

The previous model was the 108mm GAK, also called the Trooper, and spawned the Safari series of SAKs.

Def, I have thought of you as a voice of reason.  And darnit that sounds pretty reasonable.  Besides, I just got paid.  I guess I could have one in my pocket or hand soon.

You thought I was the voice of reason?  Dang, did it hurt when someone pulled your leg that far? :D 

But trust me when I say that your life will not be complete until you have one... and that will give me enough time to fgure out what the next knife or tool you should have is!

I don't think even the Elsener family has them all...  there are so many variations, limited runs, discontinued models etc that I don't think there is any way for anyone to ever have all of them.

But it's a good goal!

Sorry that I could not answer quickly, but Def answered briliantly.

I can only recommend this knife, if you purchase one you will no regret. Compared to other Victorinox of same size it look "more mature" knife. Because it is build for military it should withstand EDC easily.
