639. Special Pioneer X – VSAKCS 2016

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..

P.S. In order to show difference between this shade of gray with regular black, I’ve added few comparative pictures below.

626. Wenger Soldat 1961 (1978)

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..

605. Cadet (Copper colored)

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.

551. Apprentice Alox

The Victorinox Apprentice Alox is a pretty uncommon and rare model. It’s a single-layer 93-mm model, which includes only two tools – main blade and electrician blade.
As probably you know, the same name Apprentice was used for the absolutely another model on the past as Victorinox company did many times.
P.S. Interesting fact – looks like for this knife main blade was used from Soldier 1961 model – check the ’07’ stamp on back side.
