On the picture is my most new 93mm Silver Alox Farmer. What I mean by most new is that it got the emblem with some important design changes. On the Pioneer Range or the sturdy Victorinox SAKs from
1957 until today you will find many design changes. You will also find an evolution on most parts in them.
The Emblem used on the anodized aluminum scales with color got some important factors.
I will explain one today. The emblem used from 1957 until today have some variations and many design differences that is not by accident or just production variations. If you look on the old Alox Cross emblem you can see that some of them got a more precise
color around it. Some actually brings out the cross so it gives that 3D look. This is sometimes related to the new tang stamps after 1974. You will find it from time to time.
There are also
some changes to the aluminum handles with the cut and design in history. If you look on the inner section of them there are some changes too. So on the picture you can see two modern emblems with cross and shield. The right one is very different if you look
close. The cross comes out in a way and the lines around it tell a story as well. The coloring is made in a way that you get lines around the cross and towards the shield. That is a design factor that you can find and also on the old cross emblem like I have
explained in history. This is not a factor that is by accident. It is a significant detail that one should be aware of and to remember. One may wonder and imagine why? There are probably several reasons for why it is so. One is the looks and another is the
continuation of the quality development. Another can be production methods and evolution. Next I would believe it is about the protection of the Brand and products.
