Pros: Blade Material, Materials, Handle Material, Locking, Finish, Overall Quality, Included Tools
Cons: None
I've carried this same Victorinox knife every day for the last decade. This one is a gift. Excellent blade steel that resharpens easily and stays sharp. The Alox handles are very durable and the wood saw make this knife extremely useful in the field when compared to other models that do not have the saw. Tasks range from cutting samll limbs around a deer blind to tightening screws or opening cans.

Old school multi-tool.
I carried the Spartan for YEARS and used every tool 100's of times. Did I snap a blade every couple years? Yes, but it wasn't the knifes fault, you just get in situations and use what is at hand. Upgraded to the Pioneer when I wanted something more robust and have used every tool 100's of times. At the same time switched to the Climber as a "town" carry and the Pioneer is my "country" knife. The Pioneer at 20 y/o is better than new since I mod them. Haven't had a Climber as long. I had a habit of loosing them in airports. Love the versatility of the Climber, perfect combination of tools without being an overblown everything-and-a-monkeywrench tool. Each of these three knives are perfect in their own way. Some other brands make a knife similar to the Pioneer, they are toys compared to the real thing. These Victorinox models under $30, why screw around?

Very Handy
How did I get along without this knife? It doesn't matter; I have it now. Though I take along a small, solid fixed blade for hiking and other carry, this is a great accompaniment for that, and a very handy EDC tool as well. The blade is very sharp, opens and closes smoothly, and has no play. So, far, I've used only the cap lifter, which works great. Added bonus: The pebbled handles work great for igniting the old-fashioned strike-anywhere matches, which I have stashed in most of my gear. Really slick. I wonder if the Swiss government had this in mind when they issued these for field use. At any rate, this was money well spent, and Knife Center's service was outstanding as always.
