Pros: Blade Material, Included Tools, Handle Material, Locking, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I am a Search And Rescue Technician/Wilderness EMT Instructor. As an active SAR member and instructor I have the opportunity to test related equipment. I recently began using the Victorinox Swiss Army Soldier Knife for my pocket carry. It is replacing my Swiss Army Huntsman. The new Soldier Knife (which is the actual current issue to the Swiss Army) is larger and has more "heft" than the standard models of Swiss Army Knives. It feels heavier and stronger. The knife and saw blades are longer and heavier. The knife blade is locking which is a huge safety improvement. The blade has both straight and serrated sections. The serrated portion is at the tip, which makes more sense for cutting cordage or rope. The straight edge is toward the hilt so it is more controllable for close work. The saw is longer and heavier. A saw is essential for outdoor/rescue/survival uses. The blade is easily opened one handed with the thumb assist, and the rubber inserts in the handle make the knife comfortable to grip. The knife has a good variety of essential tools. After carrying the Swiss Army Soldier Knife for approximately a year I have found it to be an ideal Search And Rescue/Survival type folding pocket knife. I realize opinions concerning knives are greatly varied and there is no universal consensus as to the ideal knife. With that said, the Swiss Army Soldier has no deficiencies and is worthy of serious consideration as a "working knife".Note: No single knife, or tool, will meet all of the potential uses. The Swiss Army Soldier has met all of my needs for a "pocket folding knife". Multi-tools and fixed blade knives are also essential outdoor tools and should also be carried. It is not a question of carrying a folding knife, OR a multi-tool, OR a fixed blade knife. Each of these tools has a different purpose and should be evaluated separately. Personally I carry a Leatherman Wave on my belt and an Ontario USAF Aircrew Survival Knife in my pack. The reasons for these choices is a separate discussion. Concerning choosing a good working folding pocket knife; the Swiss Army Soldier Knife is my first choice.Note 2: Along the Search And Rescue/Survival tool theme; Victorinox has also released the Swiss Army Rescue Knife which is more specific to fire, rescue, and emergency medical responders. The RESCUE knife is the same frame and tools as the SOLDIER, with an additional webbing/seatbelt cutter and glass breaker added. I carry the RESCUE knife in my medic pack.I realize everyone has their individual opinions, but after a year of use, it is my opinion that you will not be disappointed when you choose to carry the Swiss Army Soldier.Dallas, from Arizona

Swiss Army Issue Version
This has taken the place of my other multi tool because it's light, and has everything I need for EDC. I've owned, and own many knives over my 30 year career in the U.S. Marine Corps. I would choose this as my deployment knife if I had to choose one, but I would marry it up with a Benchmade fixed blade. This knife is great for all your "domestic" chores while in the field and is incredibly handy and comfortable to carry. Many dislike the serrations, but I find it essential for retaining cutting power, yet still shapenable without specialized kit.

A good overall One-Knife-Option
Good version of a classic idea. I like the one handed models and I like this one the most for just carrying one blade. It does the most good for what I need. BTW - the serrations are where they are because the part of the blade nearest the handle is where the most amount of leverage is when cutting. And it only has one grind BECAUSE of the serrations. Also, a one sided grind is the EASIEST to sharpen, since you only have one side to deal with... and is a common way to include serrations on a blade. You sharpen the ground side till you get a burr... then one or two very light swipes on the non ground side will remove the burr and you have a sharp blade.
