What about the red??
« on: July 11, 2013, 03:22:08 AM »
I've enjoyed the black SAK thread very much, but I've never noticed a thread for all the classic red colored SAKs.  So here it is :D  Mods:  if there already is a thread dedicated to this, please feel free to take the necessary action, but please go easy on me :angel:  Let's see some pics of those sweet red SAKs (Alox included as well)!   :climber: :tool: :sak:

I was red-only for a while, and didn't quite understand why one would want anything else, but I've since grown out of that. Here is my current red SAK collection excluding stuff that I am selling, and including my most used/loved knives (SwissChamp and Cybertool 34).

Sweet collection of red goodness Brian, and thanks for the reply :salute:  I'm beginning to think nobody loves the red anymore...which I know isn't true :)

I'm going to slightly derail this thread from the get go and say how much I love my translucent red Huntsman. 8)



I have to say I didn't think I would like it all that much, but pics don't really do the translucent scales enough justice.

I suppose I'll allow it Gareth ;)  I would have included the translucent red as well had I thought of it.  Thanks for including it :salute:  I've never seen any in person, but I've seen pics here and they do look nice.

What model is that Gareth?  I'm not sure I've noticed that one before, and the nailfile I think is what throws me off :think:

Oh very cool man :tu:  Is it shorter than 91mm?  It looks like it to me, but that could just be the pic playing games with my eyes.

Thanks Nhoj :salute:  I suppose I could have SAKWiki'd that, but I am at work, so limited chances for that type of thing ;)

 :D Red is #1! Especially for alox.

A few random pics of red SAKs from my small 'collection' will follow over a few posts due to the limit of pic attachments per post.

No pics at the minute, but most of my pocket carried SAKs are plain red or translucent red.

Red might be the universally accepted colour for danger in most walks of life, but when it comes to using a pocket knife around non-knife people, red is the universal colour for "don't worry, it's safe"  ;)

Translucent Cellidor looks gorgeous to me, as long as is solid through (like this one appears to be). Personally I cannot stand the latest model hollow scales especially when they show in all their empty splendor.

Still, red Alox is my most favorite by far :gimme:

Nice pics everyone :salute:

Marius, you have a considerable collection of red Alox.  All very nice SAKs :salute:  Red Alox is one thing I wish I had gotten ahold of, but now I don't have much need to get any other SAKs.

Since red is the definitive 'Swiss Army' color, it shows up on every size and pattern.
