    Anyone think the scissors is a nice addition to the Pioneer? Got one for my Bday and carry it all the time.

    Did it just come out? I looked for one like it with red scales. Love their scissors. Coincidentally I just ordered a Boker Plus Tech Tool City 3 for a similar size multi-tool. I have no idea yet how it stacks up against Victorinox/SAK. The scissors and corkscrew functions are critical. I'll soon see.

    It came out in 2016 from what i read. Never seen the Pioneer X in any other colors yet.

    I've seen the Boker knives you're talking about at a sporting goods store. Haven't handled them though.

    Tell me what you think about it when it comes in.

    If I had seen the Pioneer X I might have gotten it. My usual EDC is a bigger SAK and a Shiro F3. Those scissors are damn useful but it'd be nice to slim it down.

    Which model SAK do you currently carry? I carried my black swiss champ yesterday. I call it "The Brick" because it weighs a ton. But it has everything on it but the kitchen sink.

    I really didn't notice the bulk or weight of it surprisingly. :)

    This.

    I carry my wood SwissChamp everywhere and never really do notice the weight either! :) For my pocket though I always carry my alox MiniChamp... which I just lost tonight :(

    Yeah, I'll get a replacement ASAP. It's like my wallet or something, one of those things I just need to have with me.

    Sorry. I'm new to the forum, like a hour ago new, and I'm posting from my phone. I'll get the hang of it soon enough. :D

    I just replaced all these beauties that I eventually had to sell many months back - they're all out in the mail + a black alox pioneer! ♡ I just missed my collection way too much.

    That's nice! I did get a Soldier knife (new) off eBay a few years ago. I like the old one better than the new OHO Soldier knife they have now.

    Pioneer X is like pioneer but more awesome. I also like the added thickness.

    The only gripe I have is that they reversed the scissors compared to regular SAK. Feels akward to open.

    I wish Vic would do farmer X next. That would be perfect!

    An Alox Huntsman, that could be very nice. I've had an X since they came out, and mine gets carried a fair bit. I have that for urban carry, farmer for the woods, a copper scaled compact and a normal compact for when the mood strikes.

    I thought an Alox Huntsman would be pretty cool, so I built this a while back. It's been dangling in my left front pocket every day for over a year now.

    I that idea the other day for a Farmer with scissors.

    Opening the scissors on the Pioneer X is different. :(
