For Christmas 2018, my wife and kids got me the LE berry red pioneer which has been my EDC ever since replacing the black pioneer I carried since 2012.

For my birthday last year, Amazon was still selling the 2018 berry classic and my wife got me that which replaced my custom alox rambler on my keys.

On Monday I came across a 2018 berry Cadet someone was selling on another forum for the same price a new bog  standard silver cadet goes for. I haven’t had a cadet in ages as I just prefer the 93mm frame, but at that price I could resist.

So here she is. Probably won’t get much carry, but since I don’t believe in shelf queens, I’ve already removed the annoying key ring.

If the trees blew down the wind and no one was around, would the alphabet song really go backwards?

Some very :drool: worthy Alox! :like:

Green is probably my favorite Alox color. Here's a Bantam bearing the Swiss Knife Shop logo.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

This is my only Alox, or I suppose my only two. I misplaced my Bantam, panicked and immediately ordered another one. Found it the day after :ahhh

Love this little thing ::)

Nice photos, nakken and Echotech! :tu:

I daresay I found something that can top green Alox: the First Mate in the Blue Marlinspike Series. It's on the far left in the SAKWiki photo. It is extremely unlikely that I'll ever own one.

Nothing special about those two Alox models - Farmer and Harvester. But I love them
Here is my EDC kit. Those past few days, I've taken the Farmer

The Bantam Alox, it seems to me at least, is the most appealing SAK. Useful, light, iconic.  I'd love to find some in colours other than silver but these seem difficult to find. Particularly when I'd prefer to avoid examples with a retailer's branding added. That's not at all an improvement to the knife. [Looking at YOU, KnifeCenter.]
