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

Very nice, Barry and eTripper.
I really need to get myself a black Alox :drool:

Once you have black, you'll want red, blue, and green as well!

Black alox is breathtaking when new, and then once it gets a scratch or two...it looks like GARBAGE.

...But once it has a significant amount of wear? It's beautiful again. I'll have to post mine...

A cheeky set of pics using the Solo today. I love this knife  for food… I just reach into my pocket and a (relatively) clean knife is ready to butter a lovely loaf of banana bread.  A bit silly I know to document but it’s fun  :D

Slicey slice
 
 

Perfect for cutting and still spreading butter
 

Looks a mess, but yum!

Here we go. Got a black Pioneer from DLT a few years back, and it was gorgeous. It became my fave daily carry...until it got a little wear and got UGLY.

When I had to retire my beater Pioneer, this moved into the I-don't mind-if-this-gets-mangled-at-work position in the rotation. After a year or so of hard daily use, I was surprised to find that black alox gets beautiful again after sufficient wear.

Here it is with some Maker's Mark to help fortify me against the coming Monday Morning

Man that looks great! Both the pioneer and the Maker,’s. Having a local cream ale myself for the same reason.

A little over a year of heavy use, jangling around with other tools, the occasional drop onto concrete, and chipping/scraping cured epoxy off the scales and viola!  :D

A great idea.  It would be an expensive, but extremely classy, club. I have bourbon but no worn Alox…yet.

An Alox a day keeps the doctor away.  I just love the Alox scales on my Solo and Electrician. Been looking at an Alox Minichamp… following the Minichamp challenge and seeing Barry’s Alox about sure is giving me the bug.
