yup, it's purdy. It's 46/50. My green's 37/50.
Just picked up one of these from Amazon (fast becoming my favourite place to buy Alox), it was listed as "Taschenwerkzeug Si 5 Fkt. Alox S" but I believe it to be a Bantam from checking on SAK wiki.

Its my first cadet sized Alox and to be honest I'm a bit disappointed. My Pioneers seem so much more hefty in the hand (even the solo). I knew it would be slim being a single layer but even so...
I quite like it all the same, I think it will replace my pioneer solo and become the new food knife as it has a bottle/can opener.
Yep, that's a Bantam. I have one of those and, yes, it is a featherweight. That said, it is much stronger than it appears and is the perfect pocket carry when wearing dress pants. I think I like my Cadet a little more than the Bantam - mostly because the Cadet has a lanyard ring - but I carry the Bantam at work. My Cadet has sentimental value (my wedding carry) and I don't want to lose it.
Real nice blades. I need to find a purple one. And I want to get myself a green farmer
Oh no. I just ordered an Alox Classic. I first looked at this thread last night and had no intention of getting one. Is the Alox Pox really this contagious?
You are living proof that it is.
haha Yes, yes it is! I was thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to getting 2 new Alox Classics (green and orange). But my black plastic one more than suffices (I've had it since middle school) and so I kept my monies in its account for other necessities. Have fun with your new Alox!
So what alox do you fancy getting next? (May as well think about it now)
3 Cadets & 2 Pioneers
Blue and orange Pioneer?? Nice!
I need to get me some pioneers.
Well... I had to decide between three colors for this first one. I finally decided on a color but will need to get a Maratac aaa, P7 clip and a TEC tritium fob to finish off my key chain first. THEN I can get the other two colors so I won't have to wonder if I got the right color.
The blue, green and orange Pioneers are special runs for south Africa I think..
If they only would ship to other places.
^^that's correct. Was lucky to get them a few months back from Felinevet at edcsource.

correct, but I think shipping from South Africa is VERY expensive. Felinevet did a run of them some time ago, maybe he has some left, just not listed. Shoot him a PM.
Edit: beaten to the punch by marcalbar while I was drooling over the pictures.
Mee too. Missing the green tho.
I'm mostly into alox for modding, but I do have a small pioneer collection. I had to trade a Ti scale modded pioneer to get the blue and orange, but now I found all the colors I like. I know they made them in a few other colors, but the brown doenst excite me too much.
I really want an orange pioneer!!!!!!!!
I know I wish I could do orange hard anodizing, no luck with that though. I think I'll probably have to just do some cerakoted orange scales to satisfy that orange craving.
