    Swiss Champ Plus. A Swiss Champion minus the saw.

    As of right now I'd have to say Fieldmaster especially since I put some new grippier scales on it. The super slick original scales were the biggest turnoff to me but when I found out about aftermarket scales I picked up the Fieldmaster and haven't been without it since.

    Another vote for the field master. Use to love the Huntsman but the cork screw feels uncomfortable in my hand when using the knife. The Phillips on the field master eliminated this problem.

    After carrying various SAKs over the last couple of months, I have to amend my answer...

    If I only had one SAK model to carry forever, it would be...

    The Victorinox Explorer.

    Swiss Army Knives are maddening!!!

    I just can't pick one SAK for all time!

    Now I'm back to considering the Deluxe Tinker and the Fieldmaster.

    I don't think anyone else has said my choice but a ranger. It's like a huntsman but with a file/hacksaw on it. Not much thicker than a huntsman but I find the file really useful. I've carried mine for the last 6 months or so and it's seen quite a bit of use. Carried a huntsman exclusively for years and always felt it missed a file. I have a handyman but thats a bit too thick for me to carry comfortably the pliers add quite a bit of bulk to it.

    I go between the climber and compact but I’ll give the win to the compact because I’ve carried it nearly every day for the past 6 years or so. Makes a great companion to my maratac aaa in copper that I’ve carried just as long and are always clipped together.

    I would have to pick a alox farmer.

    Tinker. 95% of what I need to get through most of my days, and I carry 2 other knives for the other 5% (one for digging around in the dirt and one for emergency situations and larger cutting jobs). That's an impressive ratio I think.

    If it were made it would be a Cadet with scissors. Anyone out there doing that mod?

    Interesting. I see where you're going with that.

    If I could only have one: My Explorer Plus, in sapphire
    But my most used is a Cadet,
    And my most carried is either the Cadet or a Mini-Champ,

    Honorable mention would go to the humble Floral Knife. I have probably six or seven, some have been re-profiled to a double-bevel, some not. All are razors, and handy as heck in my garden/greenhouse for veggies and such. Great box cutter too.

    If I could only have one: Huntsman
    I prefer the Super Tinker and it is my EDC but the Huntsmans probably has everything one could need for 95% of the situations out there.

    I like the huntsman. Has everything I need. I used to carry the Centurian but I didn't like the big Phillips screwdriver, never used it. The corkscrew on the huntsman holds a small screwdriver for the eyeglasses. I also like the large scissors of the huntsman.

    I really like the old side lock Adventurer. It was discontinued and now there is a liner lock version. But it is a very useful size (111mm) and the knife I carried for better than 15 years. It is essentially a large Tinker without the second blade.

    I've been working with one for several months now, and frankly, I don't know why its taken me this long to realize what a great general pocket knife it is. A pocket razor for sure, and super easy to touchup the blade. Rugged, simple, light weight, and inexpensive. Whats not to Love?
