Pros: Materials, Finish, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Material, Included Tools
Old school multi-tool.
I carried the Spartan for YEARS and used every tool 100's of times. Did I snap a blade every couple years? Yes, but it wasn't the knifes fault, you just get in situations and use what is at hand. Upgraded to the Pioneer when I wanted something more robust and have used every tool 100's of times. At the same time switched to the Climber as a "town" carry and the Pioneer is my "country" knife. The Pioneer at 20 y/o is better than new since I mod them. Haven't had a Climber as long. I had a habit of loosing them in airports. Love the versatility of the Climber, perfect combination of tools without being an overblown everything-and-a-monkeywrench tool. Each of these three knives are perfect in their own way.Some other brands make a knife similar to the Pioneer, they are toys compared to the real thing. These Victorinox models under $30, why screw around?
