I ordered this out of curiosity for the Alox handles because I wanted a new Vitorinox as I have had my Spartan since I was a boy.
The blade is smaller than the Spartan, but the Cadet has all the tools I need for everyday carry. BUT I found that the handle may be a bit thin and could cause hand ache after long use. It may be because the Cadet has less tools than the Spartan making it thinner, but I think the lack of Plastic scales also play a role.
The biggest problem i've found is that the nail file rubs against the blade when you open either the knife or the file, so the blade is all scratched up, not making it unusable, but it looks messy and isn't something I'd expect from a company such as Vitorinox.
There is also a chip at the tip of the blade from where if you have the file open and then close the blade, it moved and chipped on the hilt of the file.
Slightly disappointed by this purchase
