Interesting that we have so many folks who cannot get enough Alox when it comes to SAKs, but the moment we see it on something else the reception is a lot more....meh. BTW I kinda feel the same.
I think it's a matter of apples and oranges.
The SAK is a tool, and for a SAK, alox scales look at home on them. PLus, the scales are thin, relatively, so there is nbot much weight increase. But a handle the size of, say a number 8 Opinel, is a quite large chunk of metal, even if it's light weight metal, and it;s gonna be heavy. Plus the grip quality in adverse conditions.
It just doesn't look right there. It's like a nice old side by side English shotgun, case hardened receiver with nice colors, but a black plastic stock on it instead of a nice English walnut. It would be so wrong on so many levels. Like puting mags on a nice restored old Hudson Hornet.
