    Thanks Bob,
    as always i haven't been able to capture the real color shade of alox, but have to say that in this case the color's set is really stunning.
    They call it "lila", here in Italy we would have said it "vinaccia" (the residual part of red grapes when doing wine).
    Hope a great day for you.
    Nick

    I read the new rules of EDCF.
    Now i probably will change my thread's title in "YP&Nick's Alox".
    Just to stay among the rules... posting only Alox and related as i'm doing lately i will not derail from the thread's topic.

    Crashed my poor cash piggybank and went for a Mecarmy PT16.
    The usual three-four weeks to see it. :mad:
    1000 lumens (if really) are not that usual in a single 16340 pocket flashlight.
    Pocket-Rocket ? Will check it.

    Woah... a new post after centuries.

    YP (my son for not "frequent thread flyers") have had this week his personal keys provided.
    That's an event in our world's corner, where everything has to get closed and jailed if you will not want everything... damaged or robbered.
    So, coming back to EDC-related talks, he needs his first key-ring and... something added on, otherwise i'm not his dad. :p
    This is my first proposal submitted to him: a simple braided leather string with knotted ended.
    I fixed the knots all around with superglue. A bit hardened but rock solid.
    Now a good ss split ring for the four keys, a crimped metal collar to trap them to a loop in the cord... and some add-ons i won't discover for now. ;)
    Waiting your comments !.

    YP has great dad. Nice leather work Nick!

    What is that something like a tusk of the lion, by the way?

    Hi Nekolf, thanks for your always kind words.
    The object you said is an Italian lucky charm that is traditionally produced with red coral, but since I broke the previous one a friend redid one for me of the same size but made of surgical steel. So it will never break and bring bad luck ! :p
    It has been always together with the keys of my cars for over 30 years.
    Have a nice day.

    Victorinox is going to release the Pioneer X 0.8231.26, the first 93mm alox with scissors. :)

    Last alox in.
    A not perfect (scratches and scrapes on the handles... arrgghh) Solo i could not however lose because of the rarity of this edition.
    The blade had been severely abused, so i convexed, brushed and reground it to avoid losing too much part of the blade itself.
    Not the best item we have in collection, but now we have one of those at least...;)

    The no.103 alox is starting his journey to reach the other fellas, here in Italy.
    Yes, another great friend knocked at my door again giving me this possibility. Thanks brother.
    And no, this more one will not be a Pioneer X, waiting at the moment for a price lowered more than a bit, i'm not in hurry to have that regular one.
    The one coming - on the contrary - is not that common... ;)
