About this deal

The Farmer is a lovely knife, a bit of a favourite of mine, really attractive with a great deal of function. This tool is slightly larger, thicker and tougher than the equivalent tool found on ‘medium sized’ Cellidor Victorinox knives and resists twisting under torque.

I quickly found the saw on the Farmer a superfluous tool for urban carry and the scissors on the Pioneer X were of far more use.This just clips over the trouser pocket allowing the knife to hang down rather than sit across the bottom of the pocket. We’d generally recommend going for something mid-range that has a few good tools you’ll actually use regularly, rather than always having an unnecessary fish scaling tool to hand, but that’s just one school of thought.

Service from HH was again red hot even over this Christmas break and i must mention Royal mail was of equal par too ! So in 2017 I believe the pioneer X was offered , the model here with scissors that so ,so many wanted ? The Pioneer-X I consider to be the perfect domestic and office EDC where the scissors are useful and the blade shape is generally considered non-threatening.They make an excellent addition to a pocket knife that already includes a versatile steel blade a sharpened reamer and a host of other functions. It is simple to use if used correctly and I have no idea why some people seem to feel the need to butcher tins with this tool.

The new Pioneer X swap the saw for scissors, and being in the Alox range there are no parcel hooks, or corkscrews, but the blades are thicker, the build quality is excelletnt and - contrary to some posted reviews about recycled second-hand SAKs - mine was supplied in the original Victorinox box, with the usual leaflet, and in absolutely pristine unused condition. This has gained the 93mm Pioneer range the ‘sturdy’ moniker from Victorinox and despite being a folding style knife the blade is capable of fairly tough work. Compared to my cellidor SAKs, the tools on this Pioneer are thicker, more solid and robust, and the slip joints feel stronger, this knife feels rock solid and sturdy.Silver alox scale handle with key ring loop for easy transportation, packed with 9 functions this pocket knife is sure to assist you in jobs you may come across! This was a major loss bought about because a factory tool used for making the scissors included on some 84mm Victorinox knives was not repaired or replaced when it broke resulting in that 84mm scissors becoming an obsolete and much missed feature. Super sharp and precise making them perfect for opening packages snipping string clipping out articles and so much more.
