They’re available now on the UK Vic site at least, si I assume elsewhere too. Just ordered a pair of PXs, one for a fellow member who lives round the corner from me! Cannot wait to see it for real!

Group photo with the LE24 PX (fourth from left) and a few color related ones.
I hadn't noticed the slight green tint before, but I really like this color.

Very nice shot Sneider  :tu:

However I can see about nine colours in the picture that could be Terra Brown - But none of them are the LE24  :o

Also available on Vx's US site, although I didn't get an email from them saying so.  Just placed my order for two PX's.  :)

That’s odd, Myron - I did get an email from Vic…… wonder what happened?

It's nice that there are a few brown Alox around now.

They're my favorites too!   Followed closely by 2015 and 2022.  Everybody else ties for 3rd place.  :)    Funny how the world still seems to not appreciate 2016 -- even today you can find these languishing for sale.

I’ve never understood why the 2016 didn’t get any love. I think it’s great.

I love this grouping, thanks for the photo. Some real nice colors going on there.

I think only the 2019 doesn’t deliver as a colour for some reason…. I wish I’d bought an extra 2019 and 2020 to create my own kingfisher variants as the original pioneers are prohibitively expensive and rarer than hen’s teeth, but I was new to modding back then and hadn’t discovered the pivots with torx screws…..  Cracking pic, Sneider, and glad Vic did eventually send you an announcement, Myron!  :cheers:

I agree. It's one of my favorites. My wife and I were married in 2016, so I may be a bit biased.

Thank you guys  :cheers:

The preferred color is a matter of taste, it's nice that there are so many colors.
When I started collecting Alox there was hardly anything new to buy other than silver. (Except advertising knives)

My least favorites are 2019 (a bit pale) and 2018 (red is just not that special for an Le, even if it is a bit brighter)

Purple is just one of the rarest Alox colors.

@Rizio: Oooh, Kingfishers, one of the most beautiful Alox of all time!  :dd:

I’m definitely biased, but the 2018 is my favorite. It was a gift, so sentimental  and I’ve me edc’d it for 5 years. Plus, I still associate a SAK with red.

^^^ Agreed - It enhances rather than detracts

- Looks good - But maybe it's because it shows it has been well used   ???   :think:

2016 and 2021 were my faves - And the only ones I have - Apart from a 2015!

As you say - A matter of personal choice and great to have such a nice selection of colours

Yep - I know that - My point is that (at least to me) it does not look very (Terra) Brown - especially compared to the others - More bronze or gold!

Fantastic family shot - Please can I put it in the Wiki?      :think:       :D

Oh, that's what you mean. As far as I know, Victorinox works with RAL colors when anodizing.
Maybe they simply took the name from RAL8028 - terra brown.

Yes, of course, gladly!  :)

Color is somewhat subjective, and we'll never know if the color I see is the color you see, but I'm getting a hint of gold and a whiff of olive drab in there.  Almost as much bronze as brown.  Plus, anodizing aluminum is as much an art as a science, and maybe there is variance in the batches.

Nice shot PN  :tu:
Hopefully getting mine up tomorrow, as I'm being "forced" to go for a curry near Hyde Park  :twak:

Therefore, it would be rude not to stop by the London Vic' store and pick one up wouldn't it  :dunno: :whistle:

Looks nice!

I think Vic needs to send the LE's out to MTO members for pictures pre-release and use those for their marketing.  Their photoshop abominations are truly awful.

I would bear the burden of that responsibility.  :whistle:

I am really considering buying one, my first LE.

Mine arrived today and the color is even better than I had expected!   I bought two, as is my practice, but now I'm thinking I might need a third, hah.   2024 is definitely my favorite Alox LE color released so far, but there's no accounting for taste, I guess.   

I poured a cocktail and got them all out tonight and took a picture, but then realized I mixed up '20 and '21 in order.... Sigh...
