    Just picked up one of these from Amazon (fast becoming my favourite place to buy Alox), it was listed as "Taschenwerkzeug Si 5 Fkt. Alox S" but I believe it to be a Bantam from checking on SAK wiki.

    Its my first cadet sized Alox and to be honest I'm a bit disappointed. My Pioneers seem so much more hefty in the hand (even the solo). I knew it would be slim being a single layer but even so...

    I quite like it all the same, I think it will replace my pioneer solo and become the new food knife as it has a bottle/can opener.

    Yep, that's a Bantam. I have one of those and, yes, it is a featherweight. That said, it is much stronger than it appears and is the perfect pocket carry when wearing dress pants. I think I like my Cadet a little more than the Bantam - mostly because the Cadet has a lanyard ring - but I carry the Bantam at work. My Cadet has sentimental value (my wedding carry) and I don't want to lose it.

    Oh no. I just ordered an Alox Classic. I first looked at this thread last night and had no intention of getting one. Is the Alox Pox really this contagious?

    haha Yes, yes it is! I was thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to getting 2 new Alox Classics (green and orange). But my black plastic one more than suffices (I've had it since middle school) and so I kept my monies in its account for other necessities. :) Have fun with your new Alox!

    Well... I had to decide between three colors for this first one. I finally decided on a color but will need to get a Maratac aaa, P7 clip and a TEC tritium fob to finish off my key chain first. THEN I can get the other two colors so I won't have to wonder if I got the right color.

    correct, but I think shipping from South Africa is VERY expensive. Felinevet did a run of them some time ago, maybe he has some left, just not listed. Shoot him a PM.

    Edit: beaten to the punch by marcalbar while I was drooling over the pictures. :D

    I'm mostly into alox for modding, but I do have a small pioneer collection. I had to trade a Ti scale modded pioneer to get the blue and orange, but now I found all the colors I like. I know they made them in a few other colors, but the brown doenst excite me too much. :D

    I know I wish I could do orange hard anodizing, no luck with that though. I think I'll probably have to just do some cerakoted orange scales to satisfy that orange craving. :D
