Today's trending tool should be familiar to most EDCers, especially with its enduring quality, utility, and collectability. The Victorinox Cadet Alox continues to be an easy recommendation for anyone looking to build or add to their EDC. Only 84 mm long, impressively thin, with 9 useful functions, and hardy embossed aluminum scales with anodic oxidation as an extra protective layer: these all add up to a multi-tool that's not only easy to carry, but looks as good as it is functional.

Since the Cadet’s release there have been a lot of slim blades, multi-function blades, and affordable blades, but rarely do they line up so well in a single product. And with aftermarket parts like clips, scales, and swapped tools adding even more utility, the Cadet also gives you the platform to build the perfect knife. Pick up the gold standard of EDC multi-tools at the link below.

a classic size, compact, weatherproof and effective. I ground a point on the file to make a punch awl of it, leaving enough file surface left to function as such. search my carries, it's in there.

bargain for the money and a handsome gift.
