Yea, I had a gift certificate to Sportsman's Warehouse and I've wanted to have a few extra Soldier's (they have always reminded me of the old Boys Scout Knives I had as a kid) and I wanted a couple to give to me kids and they were only $23.00 each so.... alright, I really don't have much of an excuse! >:D

WE HAVE A WINNER :D

I hate to say "I told you so" but....

Ah-hem

I let this one go for a while because I wanted to see what people thought of it before chiming in, but I for one am not surprised in the slightest.  And, if anyone read the above article, I doubt they would have been surprised either!   :pok:

The only doubt I really had about it was the possibility, however slight, that Wenger's new Ranger model was going to attract the attention of the military.  Honestly I didn't see it happening, but there was a possibility, and with Wenger's new release of the OHT-like Ranger (I can never remember the numbers! :P) I thought there was a chance.

It remains to be seen whether Wenger will play a part in the new military contract or not, and in what capacity if they do.  I have an email into my contacts at Wenger and will let you know anything I find out.

We first heard about this back in August 2007 (at least us on SOSAK)
http://www.sosakonline.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=213&Itemid=35OSAKonline)

Now that we have waited a little over a year to hear the news, all the new knife gets is a couple, three pages.

I think that it (the new knife) is a major let down.  Nothing against OHTs I love them but this was going to be something new and fresh and different.

I think its true.

We were all waiting for the next evolution in SAK's....and it turns out to be "just" an OHT.

Also, if you haven't heard, a SOSAK member contacted Vic.

The Alox Soldier will be discontinued, so get em NOW.

The Alox Pioneer, essentially a Soldier with a key ring, will remain in production.

The SI status is unknown to me at this time.

Sounds like there will be both old and new '08 Soldiers.
Naturally, most of us will require both.
