    Ok i'll set you free Silver, the second new item are the Sliver (Silver's anagram... :)) gripper tweezers in the mid.
    The Ti whistle is quite good as loudness and long less than 5 cm.
    Had it on an auction on the bay for few bucks.

    Looking at these late 20 months of alox's hunting statistics (yes, we do),
    we are not going to succeed in our personal 2015's target (100).
    We are lately floating next to only 2 per month.
    Looking well at the cash and lusting for the more valuable to choose, this is the late story of the game.
    But YP and me have had a personal score of 4,8 knives per month for more than a while, so not that bad !. :)

    Hi Nick,

    You make it seem easy! I have 4 waiting for me. But I have to buy from wherever (US, Canada, Europe) and get them delivered to the UK. Then they sit there and wait for me until I go back to the UK (once per year) or someone I know is coming to Nigeria and they can bring them for me (1 or 2 times per year). The 4 I have are coming in two weeks, one has been there since July waiting!

    I have the 2015 Limited Edition Pioneer plus 1 Pioneer plus 2 soldiers from SwissBianco waiting... They'll be here in just over two weeks! That'll make my 93mm collection up to 8. I only want Pioneers or Soldiers.

    PS - you're thread is entirely responsible for me buying ANY Alox!

    Won an auction for a silver Alox First Mate, and... at a decent price.
    One of the best tools selection, imho. This will be my only one Christmas's present.
    Our second NIB Marlinspike in collection.
    Now they are 97 !

    One of the rare VIB (Very Important Blade) i lately have in.
    This one was my Father's.
    Want to share it with all you, but especially with Lou_G 'cos we had a talk about these "special tools" not long time ago.
    Thanks Lou, for your kindness and always being friendly with me.
    When Gerber was at the top as knifemaking, ah ?.
    Will be stored in a safe place, waiting for the right moment to pass it to YP.

    Wow Nick! That is one beautiful Mark I. Gerber was my favorite brand back in the 80s and 90s. They are trying to get more production here in Portland, so I am hopeful that they will improve. I have a family friend that works there, so I want to see if I can get a tour some time. Thank you for sharing these pictures my friend, I enjoyed seeing this one a lot! I'll have to take some pictures of my Mark II to share later. Have a good one!
