Just caught wind that Victorinox, who purchased Wenger a few years ago, will no longer produce SAKs under the Wenger name. Good-bye to an era! frown

Picked up this Red Alox Pioneer a while back. These Alox models are a whole different animal in the SAK world.

I like it. A good blade and not too many tools to make it too large. What are the scales made of?

Hi Pat,

The scales are aluminum with nickel silver pins. Also, the Alox models have thicker blades than the standard models.

BTW, sorry to hear about the loss of your Sebenza. Hopefully, it was picked up by someone who will truly appreciate and take care of it. Life goes on. Better a knife than a loved one. smile

Tom, you nailed it.... my favorite SAK. This one is in my EDC drawer and goes in my pocket often. This one is a little older with the plain cross logo.

Mitchell,

Actually, I tried to find one with the old cross, but most of them looked pretty tired. I agree, this model has just the right tools and less bulk. Solid little knife.

This knife is not as old or historical as some of these postings, but I have carried this SAK about 99.9% of the time for many years.
