So its only natural, that this years Alox Limited Edition comes in a new shade of red. On top an old Popular, in classic red, maybe a little faded over time. Thats how we know our Victorinox-red. The second from the right is the new Pioneer. The Berryred, thats the new colours name, is more radiant, more jucy so to speak, berrys, juice, you get the point Actually, its difficult ti describe, but a beauty to watch: The 93mm Pioneer series is a classic in the purest sense of the word. They have their own special appeal. The tactile feeling, handling the alox surface… Form follows function, at its best. Think of the Pioneer X, which, after years of wait, brought us the scissors. You can´t go more classic in tool selection than this: Famous in its own right, the beefy awl and the sturdy large screwdriver. The awl´s possibilities are sheer endless. Scrape, drill, plane, throwing sparks, saving the main blade from from harm... The main blade is thicker and has more belly, compared to his 91mm brethern. A remnant from its military heritage. Grunt-proof And it´s elegant. Alox scales look and feel more substantial and emanate quality. Celidor scales have their place as well though (Straight pin, tweezers, toothpick, ligghtweight, just to name a few) The Pioneer comes packed in the cardboard box, we came to love. The colour of the print matches the scale colour, a nice touch! And that´s what a basic EDC can look like: Set for the day´s little challenges, I´d say. Add a leather pouch, ready for business: „Outdoor“: Ready for adventure: Outstanding, Daddy likes! Life is colourfull and adding a touch of it into ones grey everyday, all the better! I´m really looking forward to next years colour!!! How about a smashing blue? Well, that´s all fine and dandy Thehunt, but didn´t you something about a new Cadet? Damn right I did! With the Cadet there is indeed a little surprise! Around 2005 Victorinox started implementing a new metal file. This new version has a more aggressive texture and from what I cann tell, it lasts longer than the old version. The old on top, new on the bottom: Whaaat, a Cadet with a metal file???
