Hi folks,

I want a new Victorinox SAK of some kind. Requirements are that it must have scissors and be larger than a Classic SD, but smaller than a Cadet. What do you suggest I look at?

I've tried to find an Executive but they are out of stock everywhere I've looked. I think they are a little less than 74mm, but they are still larger than a Classic. I like that it has two knife blades.

They’re 74mm and can still be found on a few online retailer sites. You can also find them in various conditions on the big auction site.

Where do you reside? The Executive is easily bought online in Europe.

I have an Executive. The mad thing about it is that the large blade opens behind the keyring; and the small blade is smaller than the 58mm one.

That stinks. I did not realize that. Thanks for the heads up.

It’s unfortunate that you’re having trouble finding an Executive, because it fits exactly what you’re looking for. I’ve been carrying my black one since 1999 or so. Hopefully they’ll come back in stock soon.
