    Alox Farmer, I’ve learned that I can get by without scissors.

    Runners up: Alox Cadet, Classic, Pioneer X,

    I usually go about nowadays with just an old Victorinox Spartan. But if I really had to pick ONE only, I guess it would be the Pioneer X :

    If i have my pants on there is a Pioneer in my pocket. So I guess that would be my choice. A Farmer gets pocket time when I go walking in the mesa. Never know when I might find walking stick/cane making supplies. I keep a Field Master close by in my pack though.

    The Deluxe Tinker.

    Very much like the Fieldmaster, but with pliers instead of the saw.
    And I find myself using the small pliers much more often than I ever used the saw.

    The pioneer. Carry one every day and it covers my needs very well.

    I believe that I have a Ranger 55, I'm not too hung up on the designations or nomenclature. Red and black, Philips head driver on back (important to me), non serrated blade. Feels big and solid in hand, Large locking blade and large saw, usual assortment of tools. This is my favorite go to SAK when I am metal detecting in isolated or bushy areas were I might need or choose to make a fire. If I had to grab one and run it would be the big Ranger (and I do mean big). Then my Farmer on the belt hangar. I consider my Farmer and Pioneer to be closely associated with the belt hangar, in or outdoors. Handsome, affordable, classy looks, high utility. But as said, as a hardcore outdoor choice, that big fire engine red Ranger comes with me.

    I carry a Tinker because I must have a Phillips head screwdriver.

    If I could only have one forever though, I would carry the extra weight of a Deluxe Tinker for the added scissors and plyers.

    That depends. For day-to-day use on work days, an alox Minichamp. For outdoors use and at home and on weekends, an Outrider.

    Pioneer X or Deluxe Tinker for pocket carry, my Hercules if I were using a sheath.

    One Vic SAK? It would have to be a Tinker. My first was a Tinker and I favor the tool set. Second favorite would probably be the current Electrician even though I don't carry it routinely. I carry a Small Tinker now daily and it gets used. I will only carry a two layer SAK in my pocket as a regular thing. Will toss a Trekker into my carry bag if I am headed to the woods along with a fixed blade of the day.

    Limited experience with SAK, only have a Classic, Rambler, Cadet, Pioneer, and Pioneer X. Of those I carry the Pioneer X the most, so I'd say that's my pick. However, from what I've seen here, I'd like to try carrying a Fieldmaster.
