    Just to give you the chance of thinking about different colors to choose among, red apart ... ;-)

    Thanks Nick4305. I've actually been looking for justification to collect a variety of Cadets, and am waiting for the Pioneer X to come out in other color choices. I can assure you, however, my future collection will pale in comparison to yours!

    I got them off of eBay awhile ago. Reportly they were made by Rotokid, using an old brass wash tub.

    My Pioneer X. What do you think is the mark on the round thing (I don't know the right English word, I suppose it's not called the rivet). I first thought it was a washer moved slightly to the side but close examination showed it is not the case ...

    You're welcome. Btw that's an old pic that shows less than the half of the actual collection. :)

    I think that mark is the consequence of the press machine on the brass pin.

    Found this one at the (semi-)local army surplus store which carries many used items as well. Had to get it for only 6 euro, even though blade was only thing that i could get open by hand,even barely... due to the dirt and such that blocked out any movement for the tools. after good wd40 soak and soapy warm water toothbrush clean, its working great again :)

    Compact modified with backside Phillips and awl. Custom scales from ALM Knives. Loose scales are Ti anodized that arrived today from Andrzej, not certain but they may be some of the last scales he produced.

    Well, I removed the keyring nub off my Pioneer X. I like the knife but I really hated the nub (even though I know they couldn't have put it anywhere else).

    Our dremel is busted so I had to do it by hand. :D

    I used some duct tape to cover first the scales and then the whole knife before I put it into a vice. Then I used a hand iron saw to remove most of the nub. And then I used a file to remove most of the remains. I know I could have removed more (especially on the top where it "connects" with the springs) but I decided having a little more of the nob left is better than having scratched springs.

    Overall, it's not perfect but I'm satisfied enough. I hope it will go as well when I purchase the Farmer. :)
