 I bought one from Felinevet a year or two ago. The color was autumn orange, new in box. I'm not sure about scarcity.

It will be interesting to see what this one goes for when auction closes.
I am betting the kool-aid will be spiked and way out of control; any takers?

It's not moving very fast right now.  I'm watching it, but just to see what the closing is.  These ones do come up more often than some of the others, but it also looks in new condition so that might catch interest from people that already have one.  If it hits $93 like that black one did a couple weeks back I might passout.

The infamous COPPER Alox cadet is the Holy Grail. Very hard to find. Every time I put one in the store it is gone within minutes and price seems to not be a factor.

I keep telling myself to keep the next one I get. Sigh................

I've got two (non mint) copper and one orange.  I can't find a gunmetal at all.

Except when they show up on eBay for 99 cents (though I am sure this one will end for much more!!):

Here are some of my Alox Cadet's.
All are NIB apart from the Ribbed Cadet.
My personal favourite is the Gun Metal.

Just for your info the last Autumn Orange NIB I saw on eBay sold for $76.00

That model really looks much oranger than the 53.046 autumn orange, that looks more yellow than orange.
I checked on Sakwiki, but the Cadet autumn orange is not the code on the box...are you guys sure that this is not a new, or rare model?

Hmmm..... head-smack    I think you are right.   Sorry about that....   :salute:

Looks like a new "Orange" Alox (like Pioneer orange), rather than "Autumn Orange".  Looks like it should be showing up at dealers here in the US.... time to go searching.  Hard to tell from pictures sometimes, but I have to go with the number.

I hadn't seen that colour before either.  I have an autumn orange (& copper) and the autumn is really very close to the copper, not even remotely orange IMO - not that bright flashy orange at all  :drool: - I tried for both of those and missed :(  Anyone out there have one they'd be interested in passing along  ::)  Doesn't need to be NIB (nothing needs to be NIB for me).  Would look great next to the orange pioneer & farmer  ;)  If you're getting any Tim, put me on the list!!

I was told today by a Victorinox dealer that these are the same color as the Autumn Orange cadets, but in different packaging; however the ebay knife was shown in a box, so I'm not sure they really know.

Anyway with the US number I'm holding tight, as the local price will be a lot less than those ebay sales.

I  bought two of these beauties and they look much brighter than the autumn orange cadets I saw on photos...
looks like the same color as the south african market orange pioneer.

Well SwissOutpost got some more in the other day, and they are showing the number 50048, which should be the same knife in different packaging.  I ordered a couple to see what the deal is... nice thing is I paid $15.xx, and for that price I'm willing to accept them no matter what color they are.  I have a feeling someone is buying them from SO and selling them on ebay... I think we'll see a few more get listed there.

It was good work on your part that's for sure.  :salute:
I just hope all the ones that sold cheap don't just end up on eBay.
If I find some more for sale I will gladly help out any one here on MTO who wants one.
