    I have a very old executive, but despite having broken the scissor spring, I really like him.;):thumbsup:

    You know you can get a new spring for the scissors, right? Cool Exec!

    I would like to know where to get the old style, non stainless, single leaf springs. The new springs look like a hair pin.

    After I saw your pics of that cool blade, I looked at mine and thought to myself, “self?”.....

    A black classic with red light (the symbol is the button) and the comparison with a normal black.;):thumbsup:

    Now that I've carried the Executive for a few days, it will replace my long carried Ambassador. Same length (74mm) but a little thicker. I have yet to figure out a use for the orange peeler blade but having a smaller pen blade and, for me anyway, longer file, are two bonuses. Truth be told, the tweezers, toothpick, and scissors remain my most used tools. I carry a Benchmade Bugout (535-2) or Mini-Presidio for a larger blade.

    In the last few days I’ve used the “orange peeler” as a screwdriver, as a box opener (serrated), opened a resealable bag (back sharp end behind serrations), cut off excess glue stuff off a small calendar, and pried open a split ring. Very useful. It’ll be a good scraper too. Just use your imagination.

    I mostly carry these little SAKs for the tweezers and toothpick... ;) What I like about this knife is the better file and second blade. The orange peeler is a bonus. I bet it would work well with a fire steel but I always have a more proper knife or scraper for that need in any event.

    I switch around to keep things fresh, but always come back to the Explorer.

    I was pleased today when I tried the edge of the Executive's file blade to strike a fire steel and it worked great. I added a little fire steel to my keyring and while I have a larger knife to use, the steel is only a couple of inches and it's a bit small to use the spine of a larger knife. Perfect with the Exec!

    84mm Tinker today, or is it??? I ask because I wonder if it's a different model being the logo is on the pile (back) side.
