I now have the Manager in my keychain.
This thing is perfect, super handy.

I've already used the pen, screwdriver and main blade, in spite of having the Charge in my pocket. cant say why, seems that its already in my hand when I need it.

I have the Classic with the pen. Since I'm retired and wear mostly jeans the pen gets used as much as the blade. Brilliant idea!

out of the Victorinox knives, I like the trekker's/ one handed opening blades. picked these 'ULine, (advertising ) Victorinox up for 9$ apiece. couldnt turn that down. one in every bag. prefer the one hand opening blades....

The "classic" is not much use in my mind besides cutting an odd loose thread here and there...being most sold, is not most used...again IMO.

I do love a good SAK, but don't think they become useful until you get to the 84mm size at least.

I want to believe its a "classic" knife , but lets look at economics, population, government restrictions.

just hazarding a guess in the U.S. it's probably the Chinese no name that are sold out of buckets at quick shops/bodegas.


if the blurb in the cold steel catalogue is to be believed in Africa its the ring lock (?) style.


the majority of Asians I know well enough to get into the minutia of knives are all very proud of the quality of their countrys' product but don't actually carry or use them they seem to prefer shears and scissors.

I probably have 12-15 Saks of different sizes and vintage. Usually have the mini in my pocket since I always have an original Leatherman on me.
I probably have about 10 Leatherman tools...half at least are original pst or PST 2

I never really went for the SAK. I have owned a few I gave to my first son who promply lost ever single one of them. But the blades never seemed very sharp to me and all the other gadgets I never used.

I just have a small, flat lockback I carry or sometimes an Old Timer Trapper that I used to gut my deer this year. If I need a screwdriver I have tools around me at all times. And for everything else I use a waffle faced 20oz framing hammer. That'll fix it.

Get a Manager (with pen) and keep it in your keychain. You'll find yourself using it all the time.

I have always carried a SAK since I was a kid. My last one was a gift of a Cadet Model and I really liked the aluminum scales in place of the plastic ones, which always seemed to crack and break.

I always wondered why, no one ever made an upgraded version that was made for real work, ie heavier duty, etc. Finally found what I wanted at County Com, with a Boker made knife with a phillips screw driver in place of the (useless for me) corkscrew.



Although I have a bunch of tools in my truck, this is my most used tool everyday.

I try to keep my keychain as light as posible, it can wear out the ignition switch to where you can just turn the key receptical with no key. Though i have only had that happen to a ford ranger at about 100,000 miles. If you have a chip key it might not matter.

LOL The SAK Classic IS a multi-tool!

I love Leatherman for higher force jobs not EDC. The advantage of SAK is more tools - though lighter in gage.

I carry the SAK Wenger Highlander for EDC and keep the classic in my desk drawer.

Ive read about that happening so I keep my car keys separate from my house keys. My car keys only have a key for the house, front door key, (no gate key or the othe house keys) a victorinox Manager and Klarus Ti One (a mini titanium flashlight, very bright) both of these are very compact, light yet useful tools.

I buy Classics and give them to family, most recently to my 75 y.o. father who never carried a pocket knife prior.
He loves it!

I own seven Classics and i carry one in my watch pocket daily. I find myself using it several times a day too.

I have 1 or 2 classics but never use them. I bought them when they were $12. One has a light, which was handy a few times. I think I only ever carried them the very, very few times I had to wear a suit or some kind of dress pants, and didn't want a bigger knife to show through.

EDC when not working is a tinker. Had one kind or another for 25 years. Does everything I needed it to.

My "dress clothes" knife is a Boker 2" ceramic blade with titanium scales, like this one:


The CRKT Klecker NIRK is in the suit coat inside chest pocket. 3" blade, also a thin unit, with a different lockback system.
