Few years before, in 2016 Victorinox
company realized a long-waited desire (I could say – obsession, but I wouldn’t) of hundreds people. They’re realized an Alox model with scissors (first one after vintage Voyager!) − Pioneer X
Moreover, the same model was released as Damast knife of the Year
soon after this. So, we had two new knives for this year. Is it enough? For sure − no, and specially for VSAKC
society as model of the year was released ‘light’ version of the same knife. It was called a Special Pioneer X
and was thinner for few millimeters due to removed openers layer.
Stop talking, let’s see the pictures of this beauty..
Victorinox Pioneer model with Dark Gray colored scales. Seems, this model was produced specially for US market (but I’m not sure, if you have some information about it – please share it with me).
P.S. In order to show difference between this shade of gray with regular black, I’ve added few comparative pictures below.
Yes, my collection contains only Victorinox knives. No other trademarks, no other knives, even original / genuine Swiss ones (bye-bye, Swiza!)
But I couldn’t find any reason for myself to not add this Soldat 1961
to my collection. Will be a member of small family
The Victorinox Executive 58 is a 2-layers model in 58-mm form-factor (it’s a logically, huh?), which looks is absolutely like Companion model, but with very minor difference – pattern of nail-file working surface.
One more fact, which I should to raise (again and again!) – it’s a Victorinox’s products’ naming convention:
- Executive 58 model later evolved into Companion
- Executive 74 model initially was called.. Companion
The Victorinox Cadet is a very popular Alox model in 84-mm range. But this one is something relatively rare. Let’s check what SAKWiki knows:
A Copper colored model was available for a short time prior to 2006 and is considered a collector’s item.
P.S. Special thanks to Mile Živković for the help with identifying!
Another advertisment khife from Swiss Avia Club “Avianna” – Victorinox Pioneer.
Alox Cadet – 2 layers model in 84-mm form-factor.
Need some help with identifying the exact name of this color.
UPDATE: It’s a Hunter Green color. Thanks, Mile!
Early variation of Electrician Alox model with old cross. Before 1980 this model had a name Model 2212.
Actually this model was released before then name Lumberjack was given to the another model with similar configuration of tools. The one discrepance between them – latest Lumberjack has combo-tool instead of cap-lifter in Model 2231.
The last and the biggest member of Alox Limited Edition 2016 series – Pioneer.
