Alox forever!
on: August 06, 2014, 04:26:16 PM
I've had lots of cellidor SAK's in my life. A few have been lost, several given away to friends and family. BUt more and more when I carry a SAK, it's been alox. LIke a growing trend as I got older, the cadet, pioneer, farmer, and even the little secretary and Wenger patriot, have grown on me.

Something about the feel of alox, the care free maintenance of it. When fishing on the river, just reach over the side of the boat and swish it around in the water. At home, a brush and some Dawn and a nice rinse and toss it on the counter to dry. No hidden areas to have gunk. If out in the field, Purrell hand sanitizer works well, the alcohol having no effect on the alox. Out in the woods, bug repellent has no effect, a welcome change after partly dissolving a cellidor handle with mosquito repellent that was on my hands.

My old Wenger SI has been getting a lot focally of late. The farmer is in my emergency kit for the saw.

I really love alox.
Don't get too serious, just enough will do.

Love the texture, looks, slimness, hardiness of my Cadet. But don't carry it often because scissors are my #1 essential SAK tool.

I'm sure this question has been asked before...but why, Victorigods, why, when scissors seem to be one of the most common mods, aren't they a factory feature?

I have asked this question many a time as well.  It's disappointing that there isn't a stock model with scissors :(

I believe a read a post on this forum where someone stated they may actually be working on this? It hope it was not posted for laughs. That would be very mean.

"Soldiers" are soldier's tools :think:
while officers are officer's tools, e.g. corkscrew etc.  :facepalm:

Love cellidor too but....^^^^^THIS^^^^^

I use a lot of hand sanitizer on my dirty ALOX Pioneers!!!! The carefree ALOX is a dream to clean...that is, if ya gotta clean it. They run dirty real well...

They are my #1 emergency/wildfire kit knives.

I also love how easy alox cleans up. It's one of the major upsides to them. That and they look and perform amazingly.

Nice lineup shot.  :tu:

I only have 2 Alox,  a Silver Pioneer,  and an olive Green cadet.

I really like the Alox, but the tools I want are all in the Cellidor.

Scissors
CyberTool
Mag Glass
Toothpick
Tweezers

Granted, I can carry a classic and achieve 3 of those, but it is not the same
If I can help, let me know

Yeah, they are like the old 1911A1 in that respect. The old Colt .45 could be dragged through mud of the trenches, salt water and sand in the south Pacific, or the red clay mud in Vietanm and still function good. It may have been a bit heavy and clunky, but they always worked. I guess that what I really love about the alox; you can use river water, hand sanitzer, gun cleaning solvent, whiskey, or nothing, and they will be fine.

Ya just can't beat time proven army stuff. Colt 1911's or SAK soldiers.  :tu:
