instead of carrying a sak with a magnifying glass, i just carry a credit card sized fresnel lens in my wallet. it’s probably more effective anyway.
I’d never even heard of a fresnel lens until reading your post. Thanks! I learn something new every day.

no problem. the larger sizes are more effective, but the credit card size is nice for the wallet and i’ve started fires with mine. you can get them at walmart for cheap or order them online. i ordered mine on amazon i think and have few backups to keep in different kits or to replace them as they get old and scratched up.

My friends and I pulled one of the giant Fresnel lenses out of an old school big screen tv. That had some serious power.
That sounds good for a daytime bonfire at the beach. :)

One of those sounds good for my wallet. It seems like a better alternative to the SAK magnifying glass. The only SAK I have with one is my Swisschamp, but I rarely carry it. It feels odd because that whole implement is made of plastic, but I guess that was the only practical way to make the magnifying glass for an SAK(?).

Let's bombard Victorinox until they give us the Cadet X. It is a no-brainer.

Please write to Victorinox here https://ideas.victorinox.com/en/idea/ and petition for a Cadet X.

The scissors alone are one of the best reasons to buy a SAK. I say X all the things.

I totally agree. Every SAK model should have scissors!

I only have two, a tinker and hiker...neither have scissors and I've definitely had times I've wished for scissors!

I always carry a Vic Executive, which has small scissors (but still bigger than the scissors on the Classic-sized SAKs), along with a standard-sized SAK (my Pioneer). I prefer not to carry an SAK more than two layers thick. I always carry these two SAKs in separate pockets. So for me, I can always have SAK scissors, plus the standard important SAK functions, without having to carry one single SAK with an extra scissors layer that might feel like a block in my pocket.

I carry a Pioneer X in a pocket slip. I never notice the extra thickness this way.

Done! A Cadet X has been wanted for so long I am surprised it hasn't been made yet.

Then again, we have had the Pioneer X since 2016, and the Farmer X was introduced a few months ago, so a Cadet X may be in the works already
