Top Customer Reviews
Now the bad. Victorinox seems to be very resistant to change and customer input as to improving their products ever when it makes sense. One design flaw that the Executive has (as well as the Classic SD) is that the split ring is on the same side as the large blade, and the opposite end as the scissors. This says to me that the scissors are the focus of the tool where I think -just as with the rest of the Vic line- the main knife blade is the focus. At least put the main blade and the scissor on the same end. Thankfully they put the small blade and scissor are on the same end, that way if the unit is welded to a keychain a knife blade is still accessible without being encumbered by the keys getting in the way. Also the orange peeler is useless except for the screwdriver potential of the blunted end. They should at least grind the tip to fuction more like a screwdriver- especially one that would fit eyeglasses. I think they should replace the orange peeler with the screwdriver/cap-lifter tool that's on many of the 58mm models.
All in all it's a good functional small pocket knife. I would recommend it.
Right off the bat I eliminate all models without scissors. Sorry cadet, pioneer, farmer, tinker, spartan, etc. You cant have a blade without scissors. That's like having a pbj with peanut butter but no jelly. Out of all the cutting tasks I run into in a year of my life, I'd estimate I'm about 50/50 for knife vs scissor usage. Some tasks they tie at. Some tasks they both work but one is way better. Some tasks only one will work (try cutting an apple with scissors lol). I gotta have some scissors to compliment my blade, period.
Second, I eliminate all Wenger models. I don't like their serrated scissors, so no Wenger models for me.
So that just leaves Victorinox models with scissors. It then just comes down to size and comfort. I can manage the small size increase from 58mm to 74mm in my pocket, and I don't care about slightly less phillip screw driving capability and the loss of the emergency pen, so that eliminates all the 58mm models like the Classic, Rambler, and Manager. That just leaves the Executive and the bigger 91mm models. I just don't see anything the bigger guys have to offer than really justifies the weight and bulk increase. The best tools that the Executive is missing are pliers, awl, saw, file, bottle/can opener, corkscrew + eye glass driver, and a true phillips screw driver. All the exact tools that I dont really need in my pocket knife! I have all those elsewhere like my backpack, desk, garage, kitchen, workplace, and car.
The Executive has all the essential pocket knife tools I need, and is right in the sweet spot for size.
Like any Swiss Army knife, the blades are wicked sharp.
Why do I keep buying more of these knives? First, I am really hard on pocket knives, since it is always in my pocket. I cut things that are not really appropriate for a pocket knife. Why look for diagonal cutters (in the garage) when the knife is right there in my pocket? After sharpening the blades a couple of times, I think, "Geez. A brand new knife is under $30," and just buy a new one. Second, I have left several of these at airport security. We now fly across country to see the grandson 3-4 times a year. We don't check luggage, and in the last minute rush I often forgot about the knife. Finally, I had Amazon ship one there to be waiting for me and removing the pocket knife is part of my "travel checklist." I REALLY miss the knife while in route. Fighting to open food items on the plane would be eliminated if I could just pull out the pocket knife. All of Europe has realized that knives with tiny blades are not a serious threat, but the U.S. ..... (oh, sorry, not a "product review"!)
