From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes the Swiss Army Pioneer pocketknife, a compact multi-tool for hiking, camping, or around-the-house use. Measuring 3.5 inches long, the Pioneer is stylishly cased in a ribbed silver Alox housing with the familiar Victorinox logo on the side. More importantly, the unit contains several handy mini-tools, including a large blade, a can opener with a small screwdriver, a bottle opener with a large screwdriver, a wire stripper, a reamer, and a key ring. The Pioneer also includes an engraving panel on the back.

About Victorinox
In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor for versatility.

Product Description

The Victorinox Swiss Army 53960 Pioneer has the following unique features: 1. Large Blade 2. Reamer 3. Can Opener with 4. Small Screwdriver 5. Bottle Opener with 6. Large Screwdriver 7. Wire Stripper 8. Key Ring In 1884, Master Cutler Karl Elsener started his cutlery factory in the small village of Ibach, Switzerland. In 1897, he crafted the Victorinox Original Swiss Army Knife. Since that time, the Elsener family has continued to craft tools in the Victorinox tradition of in genius design, durability, and quality. This is why all Victorinox multi-tools, made of first class stainless steel, are guaranteed a lifetime against defects in material and workmanship. REMEMBER, If it doesn't say Victorinox, it's not the Original Swiss Army Knife.

The awl, bottle opener and can opener are well-designed and surprisingly effective.

It is thinner than many Swiss Army Knives and carries well.

I have carried a Pioneer for 35 years. It differs from the current model in two respects. The alox scales were anodized red and the cut liner is brass, not aluminum. Over the years the red has worn off except in the checkering grooves and where it is protected by the awl. The blade takes a good edge and holds it well. Maintenance with a few strokes on a professional steel is all it usually takes to keep it sharp enough to win the occasional bar bet. All of the tools have seen extensive use and show little wear save minor scuffing. Despite the years of use, the joints are tight. A little oil from time to time helps flush out any pocket grit which would cause excess wear.
I can recommend wholeheartedly the Victorinox Pioneer, with the caveat that only years of use will tell if the current production knives are as good as those of the past.

The Pioneer is basically a Victorinox Soldier model, with the addition of a keyring. It provides the can opener/screwdriver, large flathead screwdriver/bottle opener/prybar, reamer, and large blade. The alox-handle knives like this one have stronger backsprings and thicker tools than the cellidor-handle models. The reamer is semi-sharpened and very effective. Nice sturdy, thin knife.

I bought this knife to replace an older one that I "lost" at an airport security check (forgot to empty that pocket at home.)

This one is an absolute gem, has a small variety of tools that are extremely useful and is not overloaded with "fun" stuff that just add to the weight and awkwardness. The metal is hard & sturdy enough that you can really do some prying without damaging the blades, the knife blade is sharp and will hopefully stay that way for a while (good metal), the can-opener works well, the shape of the small screwdriver lets you wriggle it into the smallest of openings to do the pry thing, and the blade remains un-nicked so continues to work well as a screwdriver afterward.

Also, the handle is metal, not plastic, so I can carry it (for years?) in the same pocket with my keys, with no chipping or loosening of the side plates. A very good design! and I'm grateful that the Company continues to make such a useful piece, when they undoubtedly earn a lot more profit from the big, fancy, multi-mega-bladed tools - which may be good in a toolbox, but not in a pocket!

The Pioneer deserves its reputation as a classic.

Form factor: It's small and light enough to carry comfortably in a pants pocket. Can't say that about my multi-tool.

Durability: The blade and tools are sturdy and well made, and the alox handle seems indestructible.

The blade: First and foremost, a knife is a blade, not a pliers, screwdriver, or can opener. This blade is sharp, sturdy, and sizable enough to actually do useful work. Try slicing an apple with a cutesy little 1.5" blade on a mini-multitool.

The tools: Just what you need, and nothing you don't. The awl, bottle opener and can opener are well-designed and surprisingly effective. I'm continually amazed at the amount of chores that I can handle with just the four tools on this knife.

There are knives that look cooler and have more gee-whiz features. But for day to day utility, the Pioneer is damn near perfect.

The Victorinox Pioneer is one of my favorite pocket knives for the money. The blade on the Pioneer is thicker than the large blade on the red cellidor model. The awl is sharp and makes a nice clean hole. The alox handles on this knife are solid and durable. This knife is easy to clean and maintain because of the solid scales. Through moderate use, I have yet to have to sharpen the blade. Backsprings are heavy duty making the snap on these knives is really good.

The aluminum handles look good even with wear, and there's nothing on the knife to fall apart (unlike the red plastic SA knives). The high-polish stainless steel blade is easy to sharpen to a shaving edge, although it does require more frequent re-sharpening than a Buck knife for example. The design is clean and sleek and it fits nicely in a front pocket.

There isn't much to say about it. It's a great knife. Good quality, lightweight enough, small and convenient, - I definitely recommend it to someone who wants only the basics.
