    One more vote for the Swisstool. In my case the Spirit X in black oxide finish. My daily companion for many years and beyond it's very capable usefulness it has IMO by far the highest cool factor of any multi-tool out there. I've grown to love this damn thing.

    As for SAK's, it's hard to beat the simplicity of the Cadet for me. It is my around the house carry multi-tool, where I find the bottle opener to be the tool I use most often ;). It would be perfect to me if it somehow had scissors instead of the can opener and integrated the phillips driver into the file while still keeping the slim profile.

    A Companion alox

    I carry more than one knife so have others handy if needed, The Alox Companion disappears into my pocket but ends up getting the most use.

    I waffle between the Classic and the Executive. I really like both. I use the dinky scissors far too much to not have a model with scissors. My other requirements are the small screwdriver tip, which I honestly prefer on the Classic, and the blade, which I prefer on the Exec. For my uses, most other SAK implements are toys.

    The huntsman is what I've been carrying of late and it has fulfilled all the work that I have required of it. I'll stick with it.

    Probably a Huntsman. I like that it has a saw (I have a soft spot for Victorinox saws, since my first knife was a Camper). Having said that, I carried an '08 Soldier for over 5 years at one point and never used the saw. Nice to have it and never need it, then need it and not have it, I suppose.

    The Spartan. (But the Tinker is a close second.)

    Hiker replaced my farmer for the small blade. I reshaped the small blade for whittling

    It is huge! I bought the Vic nylon pouch that is made for it and find that it carries pretty well. The other way that works for me is to attach a lanyard, put the knife in my back pocket, then run the lanyard under my belt to keep it upright. I put a knot in the lanyard that catches at the top of the belt so it doesn't slip through. The large blade is a good slicer and works well on bread, cheese, and fruit. Can't beat a Vic saw, and a big Vic saw is even better!

    They make the best little whittling blades.

    Tinker

    Been carrying one for about a year as a compliment to the Buck 112 on my belt. The pair make a great work knife setup. Truth be told I use the Vic way more than the Buck simply because the blades are so easy to resharpen.
