    Got my first alox vic yesterday. The Swissbianco copper minichamp. I LOVE the Alox, love the color, love the smoothness of the tools.

    But, I don't love the size. It isn't doing it for me. So, it's back in its box until I decide what to do.

    All these customs are so droool-worthy.....

    That's a real shame. I just got my first Alox as well, An awesome Cadet. I can tell you after carrying this,(Daily), The one like yours os next on my list for sure. Does that one have the ring?

    New project: Make an Alox Executive out of a cellidor Executive and a MoneyClip and use the clip attachment on the new build as well.

    Let's go:

    Torn up Executive. MoneyClip is next in the butcher shop.

    Yes, it has the key ring attachment. It's super nice, just not the right one for me perhaps.

    Are you for real? I think the Alox Minichamp is the epitome of miniaturizing (if ever) for a Swiss Army knife! The multiple layers, filled to the brim with all great tools, like 2 knives, the world best's mini scissors on any mini tool, multiple screwdrivers, a cap lifter, and some other manicure tools (ok, lets not discuss the cuticle pusher). And did you try to peel an orange with the cut-and-picker tool? Sure it is not the real orange peeler of the 74mm, but it works great, anyone would be amazed that someone actually though about putting that in a multitool! And all that in a size that you can put on your keyring? Sure, weight may be an issue, but then, there is always the Alox Rambler to scale down to. I also have the Alox Classic model, same size btw, but it just feels too skinny for me, and the though the little tool offering in it is good enough for a starter, for a die hard Swiss Army Knife enthusiast, only the Minichamp will cut it. This is something that should be in your pocket at all times. That is why it's so small. Instead of putting it back in the ox, carry it, and you will change your mind.

    Thanks microbe. I'll give it more thought for sure. Usually I carry my LM Squirt that's in this size range, which I plan on modding.

    So true and couldn't agree with you more.
    I LOVEEEEE Minichamp especially in alox. I even mod this size into alox.
    I use that orange peeler as box opener though and it works just as well as I thought it would.
    If I have to pick the best model in 58mm I would pick Vagabond I think it has the best set of tools that I would use all of them.
