my idea of the ultimate SAK is the Deluxe Tinker.

it has every tool you could expect of a SAK without getting into so heavy you cannot carry it.

it is 4 layers and it has scissors AND pliers to do your daily chores.

it rox! I love this thing. I keep 3 or 4 on hand because I give them away to deserving friends.

felinevet, another order soon my friend.

Agreed, I carry a Deluxe Tinker in a belt pouch whenever I go out.
Around the house, just a small Tinker in my pocket as I have quick
access to my regular tools.

I dunno. I've spent a good few years mulling over the best SAK. I've always been partial to Victorinox - carried the Ranger for a year or two, then went up to the Handyman, had that for a couple of years, then back to the Ranger, then I bought a Climber and carried that for a few months.

I'm thinking of trying out the Wenger EVO S52 (~ Handyman) if it's not too heavy, or maybe the S14 (~ Climber) or S17 (~ Ranger). I like the Wenger's scissors, can opener, locking blade and nail file - never really appreciated the Victorinox having two blades.

I think I have a Deluxe Tinker sitting in the box around here somewhere. I've carried a few different Vic SAKs over the years and within the last year, I've setting on the Craftsman. To me, that's absolutely the cat's meow!
Tons of tools that I use more than I ever thought I would and not too big for my pocket. I don't wear dress slacks often to when I talk about my pocket, I'm referring to jeans or cargo pants usually.

So my vote for the ULTIMATE SAK goes to the Vic Craftsman.

I seem to be moving into the larger SAK ranges, as a progression, or possible regression. Time will tell. I went through all the standard red SAK's up to the Rucksack, then into the Pioneer/Farmer Alox, then the new version Soldier. finally, I am waiting on the very large Vic. version RangerGrip 178.

If Victorinox could come up with the PIONEER X, but put a Large blade, combitool in one layer, wood saw in the 2nd layer and the scissors in the 3rd layer, that would be one of ultimate SAK.
