If you look on Amazon germany (that's amazon dot de) there are currently red blue and green ones for 55 euros each.
I don't know if Amazon de ships to the UK (what with the mad knife laws etc) but I have used Amazon France and Italy successfully shipping to Germany for 6 euros shipping. So if they ship to UK you could try that. Otherwise get some kind person here to order one for you and send it on.

If you're clever you can switch it so that everything is in badly translated English!

Click this button and a menu comes up.

I will ask tomorrow, if you want, just in case

I don't think there was a Victorinox Pioneer X in anything but boring Silver (unless you count the Damascus Pioneer X from 2016)
The coloured alox series includes the classic, cadet and regular scissorless pioneer. Which is a bit silly of them, cos obviously coloured Xs are super-popular.

I will ask, but as thunder reminded me the 2015 coloured alox was not an X model.

I will let you know if they have anything,

You could give this German online shop a try:

https://www.schweizermess...vi.php?k=685&lang=eng

According to the info on their site they're shipping worldwide.

Good luck!  :tu:

Cool! I never even knew that shop existed. I guess Victorinox limits the colours available to green red and blue cos (the other) Schweizermessershop had the same choice - no truly exotic colours (which they once had for regular pioneers.)
But I think the real problem is the UK post refuses to carry penknives. About a year ago someone tried to send me a 111mm SAK, told the post office what was in the package, and they said it was a prohibited item! Well this is what happens when idiots keep stabbing each other in London. But I digress.

It's lovely here this time of the year! (not really...)  :D

Royal Mail will carry pocket knives if they're in their original packaging or if they're packed correctly... as long as they're legal that is. Sometimes though, RM employees get confused by their own guidelines etc...

They have be seen doing something, even if it’s silly and ineffective, or the public will howl.  ::)

Actually... come to think of it.... if they didn’t do anything... would the public notice?  :whistle:
Probably not until the Daily Fail picks up on it.  :facepalm:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!
