I was thinking of buying a Victorinox Picknicker because I wanted a dedicated swiss knife for my food prep and/or kitchen needs. I was thinking of getting the Picknicker because it seemed like the simplest knife that still has the multiple capacity that I think I will need in terms of food prep. It has the bottle opener, can opener and the corkscrew. Add to that the sharp blade and I will pretty much be able to open any food/drink packaging that might come my way.
I also chose the 111m Picknicker, not really because of the locking blade, but more so because it has a longer blade than the 91mm Spartan (which has the same functions). I find that the longer blade makes it easier to slice meats, fruits, vegetables and other foodstuffs.
Also, another advantage of the Picknicker that I'm thinking of is that it would be very easy to clean, considering that it only has two layers. I expect a lot of washing for the Picknicker and it seems good that it has a very simple design compared to other thicker SAKs... less nooks and crannies at least. This is also the reason why I chose the slide lock Picknicker instead of it's liner-lock version, the Nomad. I sometimes find that the liner-lock, when in the locked position, makes it harder to clean the inside of the knife. Also I don't think I need the bottle opener to lock.
In any case, these are just my thoughts and I would like to hear yours before I go out and get this knife.
Any advice? Thanks.
