    A pair of advertising Pruners.
    The gold one is a bit unusual as it has the new Victorinox shield on the front, but the old logo on the rear advertising plate.

    The last alox in the door for 2018 was this trio of Solos. There are now 39 unique Solos in the collection. :)

    The weather has been pretty gray here recently. As soon as we have a little sun, I will bring out the Solos for a group shot. :)

    Gunmetal
    Clariant Gray
