wish they put the serretion on the back of the knife and straight edge on the front like the ranger.

Well, here it is:

It's a GAK with different scales. Or is it the other way around?

          Heck,start buying up the 2008 Soldiers,those are likely the last of the line.What's Wenger going to do? Are they going to make them under contract,or be left out in the rain?

This is just sad. I mean, I have nothing against the OHT/GAK, but I was hoping for something more exciting than different scales. Now, if the scales were alox, it would have been something...

IIRC Micky earlier posted that he came across the rumor that the Farmer would be discontinued,but right now,I'm too tired and lazy to search.Maybe there is some substance to the rumor after all.

I don't think it was so much a rumour as just speculation on what would happen with this change from alox.

On the plus side, at least it's still a Vic!

And while it does look the part, it's hardly different, but then I guess that keep's the cost's down so the Army continued to buy it :)

And Bob I think Bill started the rumour, and I'm inclinde to belive there's something in it :(, certainly Wenger's not going to have much call for keeping there excellent SI in production :'(

Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

I really like the look of this tool, but I find the Serration set up wierd. Does anyone find it difficult to use?

Unfortunately, I think that's a given. I really prefer having a bail like on the SI too...

Yep it look's like last order's :'(

Which is a shame as I always felt the SI was a much better Sak to the Soldier :-\

This is from SOSAK forum and to me it makes a lot of sense. ;)


People compare the alox knives to the old GAK's.

I think that's unfair. The older GAK, in my view, was a smaller share of the market. The size was right but there we not many variations on the design.

On the other hand we have alox. There are several models of alox knives. So there is a larger market, and a greater love for them.
Additionally, since the government order for alox Soldiers was a small portion of Victorinox total sales, and likely a small portion of all alox knives even in production, I see no reason why Vic would discontinue the entire alox product range just because a small portion of it is no longer needed by the government.
