Measuring 3.7” when closed, the Victorinox Pioneer comes equipped with 7 useful tools including a large blade, can opener, wire stripper, and a reamer. If you liked the Cadet but have space in your pockets for something a little larger, the Pioneer might be for you. It offers larger blades and ditches the nail file in favor of the reamer, which comes in handy if you need to poke a new hole in a belt or for opening packages. It's useful for all around poking and prodding, sparing your blades any damage and saving them for precision work. And like all Alox models, the Victorinox Pioneer comes with hardy embossed aluminum scales with anodic oxidation as an extra protective layer, making the tool even more ideal as an everyday carry.
