I have black one like this http://www.knifecenter.com/item/VN54875/Victorinox-Swiss-Army-Black-One-Hand-Trekker-Non-Serrated-4-38-inch-Handle

I tried the serrated blade and did not care for it.

Have a German Military Model on order. http://www.swissarmy.com/us/app/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Hunting/One-Hand-Trekker-German-Army/54876

I find the main locking blade and saw blade to be very useful. My first impression of the saw was that it would not be able to cut anything. It proved me wrong :)

Make sure you don't rub your finger along that saw. :D

I did and paid the price...it's wicked sharp.

I have several Victorinox knives from the Champion to the Officer's model. I prefer the Officers model for an everyday knife.

I've had the Trekker (standard model) for about 3 or 4 years now. I like it. I don't carry it though because I've made it a permanent part of my mountain bike gear. The big wide flathead comes in handy for popping tires off the rim for a tube change. The saw is great for taking down low hanging branches blocking a trail, and the tweezers have been used to remove splinters and thorns from my legs and arms after a crash.
