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.
As probably you know, during last several years company Victorinox released special series of fashion designed Classic SD models.
For my collection I’ve bought one piece from this run – “The Mountailns are Calling“.
Article number of this model is 0.6223.L1604.
Today’s model is a last member of this series – regular Classic SD with new pattern on scales – Desert Camouflage.
Article number of this model is 0.6223.941.
Don’t have enough words in order to describe this set…
