2018 Alox LE Color
« on: March 16, 2018, 12:24:13 AM »
I've been picking up the most recent Alox LE's in the Pioneer only.  I'll probably regret not getting the whole sets some day, but you can't own 'em all I guess. 

I was IM'ing with a VSA customer service rep the other day and asked him when the 2018 knives would be available, and he said April 30.  I asked him if he could spill the beans on the 2018 color and he said that even they didn't know yet.  So I was just wondering if anyone had the inside track on this and knew what it might be?

Thanks,

Myron

Here are my 2015, 2016, and 2017 Pioneers:

Isn't it that bright orange/red colour someone posted pictures of a few weeks ago? If I knew where the picture was I'd post a link to it.

It was reveiled on Shot if I remember correctly.

What was it called?
Berry Red?

I see there is an eBay seller from Switzerland that has the 2018 LE Alox set now.

Funny, I don't see it on VSA's own site yet...

The cadet nail file is really intriguing. I wonder why they changed the file pattern, doesn’t seem like they did this to the other models.

Is it just me or does that 2018 special edition color look almost exactly like standard red alox? I would love to see a side by side comparison between the two.

Spotted a comparisson shot somewhere on Facebook these last few days.
I'll try to find it for you...

It was shown here some time ago that the Sportsman had been updated to have this new file as well.  I laud the change--the current stippled file can't file metals. The Executive was recently changed to have the stippled file, and I'm hoping it goes to this as well---should be even be better than the older (cut) examples.  Hopefully, the 58mms will have it too at one point.

Anyone know if/when all Cadets are going to get this new file? I want to get my hands on a standard silver alox cadet with this upgrade.

There are three pictures of a silver cadet on swissarmy.com and one of them shows the new nail file (the other 2 don't). 
I suspect that like the switch from button lock to liner lock on the 111's there will be a mix in the pipeline for the rest of 2018.
