Don't know about that, SirVicaLot, but I will say that your pictures are usually the best.

My son gave me a limited edition blue alox Pioneer for Christmas this year.

It's my first full size alox Victornox knife.
I do have a small cadet (I think) alox.
The alox just feels right, I have quite a few knives of various makes and models.
But the alox Pioneer feels just nice in my hand, solid, well made and nice.

This is my new favourite carry.

But I must admit, I'm seriously looking at an alox farmer x for my collection.

tools is what defines us as humans

 :iagree: The Alox is sturdy and just feels solid and reliable. Welcome to the Alox rabbit hole  :D

My latest Pioneer. Wasn’t sure about the black, but I really like. It is a dark and saturated black  :drool:

I have the same one. Agreed the black looks very nice on the alox.  :cheers:

Nice find SVL! Have one myself, the poor man’s Black Beauty, and given the price of the last BB I saw, I’ll stick with one of these!

Nice, Myron! Please show us your BB and PMBB side by side - it’ll be a treat for those of us who almost certainly never see one for real!

Myron has excellent photos in his blog. Scroll down this page to the “Black Beauty” section, and you will find that which you seek:

Thank you, Mr. Frailer; you are too kind.  For those not wishing to read the entire article, here is the picture (I think) I have there of the Swiss Rail Soldier (commonly referred to as the Black Beauty) and the red shield Pioneer (which I dubbed the Poor Man's Black Beauty). 





And here are a couple bonus shots I found comparing the two.  Note the thickness of the implements, among other differences.

I like the thicker tools on the Pioneer, but that old red shield on black Alox is just  :drool: :drool: :drool:

The thicker, sharper-edged tools are the Swiss Rail Soldier!  The Model 1961 rules.
