    Yeah, shrinking those scissors down to fit the smaller frame was a pain... next time ill step it up and go with a larger knife...although I really like how the cadet feels in the hand.

    I would love to buy one like that! I dont like the file on the cadet and would rather have a second blade with scissors is perfect. Not sure if I would use the clip though!

    Where can I get one in sliver alox?? :D

    I picked mine up on ebay because the orange is harder to find at a decent price.... The silver ones are everywhere..... https://www.google.com/#q=silver+alox+cadet&hl=en&tbo=u&source=univ&tbm=shop&sa=X&ei=_XCcUIytIoSJrgGH-4HwBw&ved=0CEUQsxg&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&fp=36a846e51ac81964&bpcl=38093640&biw=1138&bih=532

    I figured my normal non-collectors approach to knives had probably helped me escape the alox pox, until I realised I have had one in my pocket almost every day for the last four years, and then I added up how many I actually have (not many compared to some here, but then again I don't actually collect these...)...


    How hard is it to put a pocket clip on a cadet, or more importantly perhaps, how much would it cost me? One of the mods I wandered about a long time ago but never got any further... Ideal for the newer model cadets without the keyring.

    How are the lanyard knots on your SAKs called?

    I was wondering 'cause I can't see the paracord ends? Did you melt them?

    Yes. Cut them close to the knot end melt them so they fit flush with the knot.

    I really, really, really want one like that! Of course, a mint condition Voyageur or that modded orange cadet with scissors I saw in another thread would be great as well, but I think I prefer the 91mm knives.

    EDIT: The orange cadet I referred to was, of course, sporttracguy's wonderful mod. That's what I get for posting before reading the entire thread.

    I hope SwissBianco will release an Alox SAK with scissors in the near future. Last year or so, he announced a +B Voyageur but never released one to this day. But look what he posted on his facebook page on Tuesday:

    Trying to find it on FB, but it seems like FB is slow today.. But he posted earlier this year that Victorinox had said no to produsing any Alox with scissors.. But you never know what Swiss Bianco can do. :)

    Here you go!

    I just remember that he collected a bunch of scissors from the older 84mm models last year. Maybe he makes a small run with them. We will see.

    This is pretty much my dream tool. So awesome, man. Great work.

    Are you taking on commissioned projects?
