What customers say about "Key Specs"
Victorinox Farmer
  • The saw is a hungry beast, devouring its way through wood and other soft materials, like plastic, drywall, etc.
  • The can opener and bottle opener work well and they have the extra features of having the flathead screwdrivers and a wire stripper to boot.
  • The saw is fantastic, and will allow you to take samples of any wood you see growing out in the brush. The can opener is a dream.
  • It came shave sharp out of the box and a few swipes on a ceramic bar made it scary sharp. The reamer also has a nice edge to it.
  • A little disappointed that my saw rubs the blade and all of the blades are not perfectly strait like most of my other victoinox but I still like it.
Victorinox Pioneer Alox Swiss Army Knife
  • I use this daily to open letters, as a screw driver, to pull nails out of the wall, take out splinters and to open toy packages for my children.
  • The opening tools can perform a very wide variety of tasks. The reamer tool is superb! What an excellent tool. Drills, scrapes, punches, scribes, planes, pokes, cleans, etc.
  • The stainless steel blade sharpens more easily than any other stainless steel blade found on non-Swiss army knives but will hold an edge quite well.
  • The large screwdriver blade stays in position when it's only moved halfway towards being fully opened, a surprisingly useful feature which lets you put a screwdriver into some tight spaces.
  • Unfortunately after a dozen of apples and oranges peeled steel went dull which is pretty fast.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Victorinox Farmer
  • The blade is the perfect size for food prep, carving tasks, and whatever else a pocket knife will be used for.
  • It is the perfect size for the tasks that a pocket knife would be used for and the tools it does have are all essential without adding too much.
  • This is not just a pocket knife, it really can do a lot even as an emergency survival knife! If i would get lost in woods with only this knife in my pocket, i am certain it would save my life.
  • The fit and finish of the knife is excellent. The size is larger than the Tinker.
  • The tool fits in my pocket comfortably and still has a good assortment of tools.
  • To large and bulky and you difficult to open. Too large to carry.
Victorinox Pioneer Alox Swiss Army Knife
  • The knife feels great in your hand and fits perfectly in the top right corner pocket of my jeans.
  • It is just right in size to do everything from peeling an apple to creating a fire. It has all essential tools and is stil easy to handle an smaal enough to have in your pocket all day.
  • The knife blade and drivers is also slightly larger than the standard models, which makes it suitable for more demanding tasks.
  • It is an excellent size. Very slim for pocket carry but longer than most SAKs so a little more comfortable to use.
  • This knife is very light for its size. No weight in the pocket. The fit and finish of this knife is what you would expect from Victorinox Great.
  • Too heavy to carry around...especially backpacking.

What customers say about "Features"
Victorinox Farmer
  • This knife quickly became one of my favorites and replaced my main carry knives, even the ones that cost much more.
  • It's well designed, well constructed & plenty strong for its intended purpose, i.e. urban or light-field tasks
  • The springs and tools are very strong and the whole knife is way more durable than knives with plastic scales.
  • The aluminum handles have a nice tactile feel. It looks and feels a little more upscale that my red Ranger.
  • The Alox scales look and feel great, whereas the plastic scales on the Farmer feel cheap.
Victorinox Pioneer Alox Swiss Army Knife
  • Knife has a very strong construction with excellent slip joints. Steel has excellent rust resistant and the main blade came with good sharpness.
  • I like that it's a metal handle instead of the plastic molded ones, and has the textured sides for a better grip.
  • The blade is made of stainless steel and is very versatile. This product is great for camping even though it doesn't have a little saw tool.
  • It´s very sturdy for such lightweigt knife. I think it lasts a lifetime in normal use.Alox handle looks beautiful and gives good grip.
  • My only gripe is the keyring bites into my hand when I use the knife so I ground it off.
