    A pretty rare piece of 84mm alox - black Lumberjack #18. I am not sure, but I think there were 65 of these made.

    Hi Philo,
    Really another nice find from you, my Alox Jedi Master ! :)
    FWIK in 2011 Lumberjack has been produced by Ibach for +B with red alox scales in a lot of 65 pieces, and other 20 (twenty !) pcs only in black... but i may be wrong.
    Best regards.
    Nick

    Thanks Nick!
    Do you remember where you saw this info? The only reference I could find was on the Swiss Bianco Canada web site.

    -----
    From Swiss Bianco Newsletter 2008 Vol 3:

    "Red and Black Alox Lumberjacks arrived safely in Atlanta and will get engraved too."

    "For Sale by +B
    I have the following available for sale or pre-order (prices do not include shipping):

    Red Alox 84mm Lumberjack (black is sold out), only 65 pieces were made"

    Hi Philo,
    i honestly can't recall where i saw the info i told you.
    I remember quite well it was in a chat in Deutch language; there were some pics (as per +B old habits) about the lot of red Lumberjacks produced (some more than 65, sayin' it all...) and among the discussion a fellow swiss collector affirmed about the pieces in black alox were only 20... i will dig into the cookies of the laptop i had in use until some months ago to see if i'm able to be more precise for you.
    Hoping great days for you,
    Nick

    Good memory Nick!
    I think I found the info you mentioned:

    [​IMG]

    Google translate:
    "the quantity of the limited edition red alox lumberjack will be only 65 pieces, additionally the 20 pieces black alox lumberjack, the black ones are completely sold out, of the red hats still some."

    [​IMG]

    So #18 of 20 for my black Lumberjack!

    There were 162 pieces of Lumberjack produced in silver alox.

    Great collection, Philo !
    I'm very "envious" of some, SwissCarp and Burkhalter over all... and better not to talk about the red Sigmaform... :)
