Another classic mod you need to know about
« on: April 06, 2018, 10:59:05 PM »
You think you know about modded ALOX?  Some time ago I told you all about a pioneer (no pun intended) in the Modding Hall of Fame named Bill, and some of you knew him, many of you didn’t.  Well, here’s another name you probably don’t know, but you wish you did- Scott Kiser.

Scott used to post in the old SOSAK forum over on Knifeforums, and I got to know him reasonably well, and we worked together on a few projects, including at least one to benefit our good friend Felinevet Tim.  If you have any idea what I am talking about, then you probably knew him better as Knifecoop.

Back then ALOX modding was very new, and most mods were relatively simple scale mods- fancy woods carved out and applied in place of the simple cellidor slabs, but Scott wanted to take things further.  He wanted to make a SAK that was truly his, and to be honest, I haven’t seen anyone do anything like this ever since.
Now, thanks to a trade, I have one of my very own to share with you, and so, I would like to take this moment to introduce you all to….



The Old School Farmer

These were not inexpensive mod jobs, but Scott used to sell them through his website at the Knife Co-Operative.  I know a few people that had them, and I would imagine most of them still have them as this would not be a knife they could replace easily, if ever.  In fact, they are so rare that I even forgot they existed until this most recent trade, where it was offered up amongst a pile of other things.



When I saw it, I knew instantly what it was, and I simply HAD to have it.  Thankfully the person I traded with is someone I trust, which is good because anyone even slightly shady could have taken me for a whole heck of a lot!



Basically it is a Victorinox Farmer model done up with horn handles and nickel silver bolsters in the style of the Traditional American slippies like Case, Queen, Imperial, Schatt & Morgan etc, only with Victorinox parts and quality mixed in.



And, it is basically unused- I don’t think the previous owner, who has had it for approximately ten years (around the time Scott was active!) ever did much with it.
But now it’s here, and it’s mine… all mine…. My precioussssss

I should have known you would have one!

I know Terry (NutSAK) has one, and Inky has two or three, but those are the only ones out there that I am aware of.

That is beautiful. Too bad you can’t get them now.

I'd just be happy knowing where Scott is these days, and letting him know that I wish him all the best in whatever he's up to.   :tu:

That is a crazy-awesome mod. Wow.

I kind of waffle on whether or not I like bolsters on knives. My first pocket knife was a little Buck with brass bolsters. So, some of them I like, some I don't. The stainless bolsters on this thing look amazing.

I would imagine there is a crap load f work involved in these, which I assume is why it didn't catch on with the larger modding community.  Some of the guys out there that claim to be SAK modders can't even peen pins properly, so I can't see them going to the effort to work the bone and bolsters properly either.

Yeah, it really is something.

I have never been a big fan of traditional slip joints but these really appealed to me for obvious reasons.

Wherever Scott is I hope he knows how much his work is appreciated!
