I prefer the recruit over the tinker, and because I carry the classic for the scissors I no longer require the toothpick and tweezers ( not that most of my pocket knives have 'em anyways ) so I have come to really like the cadet.
It would be the Cadet for me. I DO like the Tinker, and Cellidor models in general, but I've had an ALOX Cadet for a long time, and is almost always either in a pocket or in my daybag. We're close friends at this point!
My huntsman had a chip taken out of a factory scale while it was in a backpack so I replaced the scales on several of my SAKs.
To answer the question, I prefer the Cadet. Red alox being my favorite, its the color I think of when I picture a SAK, and IMO alox looks better with some wear than cellidor does.
