...... alox Bantam (with added leather pouch to overcome the bitterly missing key ring) in the 5th pocket.
......

There are very mixed opinions on the keyring here amongst the Knights - It seems to be a love or hate relationship
Plenty of Knights file them off some of their SAKs   :o   - Others swear by them!!

However for the Bantam it would be hard for there to be a keyring
Keyrings are either attached to a liner or to a free end of a spring (eg curent 91mms) -
The Bantam has neither !!   :o

However looks like you have come up with a great alternative    :pok:    :tu:    :)

I, Aloxfan, being of relatively sound mind and body, hereby entreat the powers that be to consider me for membership in good standing in the Swiss Army Knights and promise to place no knife before my trusty Swiss Army till rust do us part.

Thank you for the kind words and your welcome to the Order!
However, one question about the keyring - Mrs. Z1913 is in possession of celidor Bantam, which has keyring. Is there a difference in the construction between the alox and celidor Bantam? It seems to me that theoretically the alox version could have a keyring as well.

Aha - Interesting

I only have an alox Bantam - So cannot check
However for sure the Cellidor Bantam will have aluminium liners in under the plastic scales - So the kering will be on that 'layer' - ie built into the liner

The only possibility for the Alox would be to build it into the little blade rest/spacer - I guess that could be possible.
 
Oh Wow - I just looked at my Cadet - And that is where the keyring is - So I take back what I said earlier - It is possible!
So lack of keyring must be a design decision - Maybe to keep it minimalist?     :think:

I'd guess something along those lines. Either that, or they tried it on an Alox Bantam and found the larger key ring too wide and the small key ring too user-unfriendly.

My opinion on key rings? They only affect how I carry, so I leave 'em as they are.

I agree,  they come with the knife... funny they count it as a 'tool'

….and the small key ring too user-unfriendly.

Where do you see the potential  issues with small key ring on larger knives?
I have a Waiter and always had the feeling something was not right with it (while always appreciating it’s ultra usefulness). Then I realised it was the large key ring - I replaced it with the small one and suddenly everything was good.
I did not notice any issues with the smaller one - like getting stuck, not moving freely… so I wonder where do you the user unfriendliness.

That was a theory I posited as to why the Alox Bantam lacks a key ring attachment. I've not personally tried a small key ring on a larger SAK. Some of my larger SAKs could use new key rings, and I only expect those key rings to hold a piece of paracord, so I may try the smaller ones and see how that goes.

Welcome to the Knights Sir Tasky

And I have to go into regular English at this point - as opposed to my normal silly attempts at peseudo-medieval English.

Now that really is a great photo
Of course it is a classic, classic model - especially for tool density and convenience - And you are showing all those tools splayed.
But putting the Ranger SAKWiki screen in the background is pure genius!   :pok:    :)

And, as you may well know, we have quite a bit to do with SAKWiki around here!!    ;)

My thanks to you, Sir Huntsman, for 'tis my most favour'ed of companions as I wander yon ways of the woodland. Indeed, as much can be seen from the scars borne along its length.
Strange to observe, is it not, how diminutive the thing doth appear in mine hands, yet when thusly splayed within the presentments of our canny merchants, in contrary fashion it doth appear far greater...

And yea, the range of contrivances within such an encasement as this, of near equal breadth and depth, is true delight and of great enablement to one such as the titular Ranger himself!
But for shame, as 'twas my mind to render a presentment of far subtler background, so I fear my learning of the Samsung Galaxy discipline is yet far from mastery!

I’m currently adventuring in Africa, but I live in the US.
My knife (Hiker model) has come in VERY handy here.
