Very well made.

The Officier is more of an "indoor, every day" knife, the Soldier an outdoor knife, for more rugged purposes.

I finally decided to buy a Victorinox Swiss Army Knife because I knew I would get a lot of use out of it at work as well as home. I've never owned a Swiss Army Knife, just cheap imitations (which this ain't). While browsing their online catalog and searching for the right compromise between features and size, I saw that the new standard-issue soldier knife had just gone on sale for 2009.

I was attracted to the olive drab color scheme, much more businesslike than the Swiss red. Since it's brand new and I'm a geek, I had to have it. Factory site says it's 4 and 3/8" long closed, which is on the big end of the pocketknife scale IMO. Some may even carry this in a belt pouch, but I find it very pocketable. The grips are lightweight, hard plastic with softer black inserts. The matte texture is very easy to hold and won't show fingerprints or smears. Comfortable in the hand.

The size of the knife, along with the tool loadout, make it more suited for outdoorsmen, soldiers (go figure), and assorted "rural adventurers". The knife blade opens easily with one hand, lefty or righty, and locks with a satisfying clink!. The lower 1" of the blade is plain (and sharp!) and the rest out to the tip is serrated. Fun fact: I believe they bill this blade as a "seatbelt cutter" as well. I carry the Swiss knife alongside a plain folding knife, so I don't really miss having a plain blade, but this may be a concern for some.

The bottle opener is the only other tool with a liner lock; it doubles as a big flat screwdriver and it has a little wire-stripper notch onboard (works well on small wires, fyi). The can opener has a small flat screwdriver at the end.

OK you have to think if it took them 48 years to decide that they needed a new knife, the old one must have been pretty good. It Was! Buy one while you still can!

So what's up with the new one? Quite a lot, this knife is a lot bigger, the old Soldier's knife being 93mm this new one is 111mm. That may not sound like a lot but it really is in a different size category. Some people would have a hard time carrying this one loose in a pocket because of the size increase and the weight has increased from 70g to 130g. This feels like a very substaintial knife, but has injection molded handles using a non-slip composit material that is also a bit soft. It feels very comfortable to hold, it sort of melts into your hand.

The round hole on top of the blade allows it to be opened with one hand, using your thumb as you grip the knife. Unlike most Victorinox Swiss Army knives, the blade on this new one locks in the open position, so it can take a bit more abuse and using the blade it in a sawing motion won't remove your fingers. Still consider the lock a safety feature, not a license to use bad technique. The large Screwdriver also locks open, this may not sound so interesting, but it really is night and day compared to the non-locking screwdrivers on other models. First it is incredibly solid, you'll feel confident using it. It's actually build extra strong so you can use it as a small prying tool for getting into cans, opening jammed doors, windows, screens, or anything where a little lateral force would help. This way you won't abuse your knife blade for these tasks. This is one of my favorite tools on this knife.

The Soldiers get a saw! Why didn't they have this before?

I carry this knife with me all the time, and I do a lot of outdoors activities, mainly long hikes. I carry a Mora carbon steel as my main knife, but this one is more than adequate for other jobs or as a backup. The saw is smaller than my camp saw, of course, but is capable of some decent sized saplings. This knife is more than capable of everyday jobs, as well as many wilderness tasks. It will not replace a full size blade or a campsaw, but it definitely has its place.

Executive Summary: The new Soldier knife is terrific, but it is not a replacement for my trusty Officier. The Soldier is for the outdoors, the Officier is for the indoors.
________________
I am a long time Swiss Army Knife (SAK) user. In fact, I own three different traditional SAKs (so that I always have a spare - I never lose them for good - just rotate 'em) and a few of the tiny penknife/scissor/file pocketknives that are cheap and just handy to have around. I also prefer Victorinox over Wenger, but since Wenger was bought by Victorinox recently, this is now a moot point.

I carry a SAK for a lot of reasons. First, I hate being without tools. Watching someone trying to use a paperclip or a fingernail file to do what should be done with an actual blade or screwdriver or whatever is just annoying. SAKs are endlessly useful when you have a problem that requires a real tool (except when you need a wrench or pliers, but that's wandering into multi-tool territory). Second, SAKs are regarded as relatively innocuous by the public - no one is going to clutch their heart and gasp when you pull out a SAK. True, the airport security folk frown on them and that is a whole other discussion that doesn't belong here, but everyone else regard them as tools, which is exactly what they are.

The biggest beef I've had is the non-locking main blade. You should never carry a dull knife, and SAKs are made of pretty good stainless steel which sharpens and holds a fine edge, but working with a non-locking folding blade requires an extra degree of care. I've never had one fold back on me, but it is still something of a concern having your fingers in the path of where a razor sharp blade would fold back.
