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.

The Solo would be a great food prep SAK. Now you have me thinking of picking up another for that very reason.

Alox Solo worked great to cube some chicken breast tonight.
 

I could see using it while camping and cleaning/sterilizing with some soap and boiling water. Gave that a try and it cleaned off well (no cleaning action shots).

And a whiskey to top off the evening.

Pairs better with alox than cellidor SAKs  :D

It is a pretty good whiskey. Recommend it if you find it at your local liquor store. Im no expert, but I think it is smooth with mellow flavors. Straight, chilled, or on ice it maintains a consistent flavor and finish.

The eponymous SAK donned a Victorinox fob today. Orange and silver look pretty good together, eh?

Looks good with a little spice, at first I put a black fob on, but I said no, had to be red being a red FarmerX, this xmas will mark its 2yr anniversary of carry, it’s perfect for my needs, especially with the matching alox mini on the keychain, just missing the tweezers..
