Alox

The Alox knives are very popular with collectors and users. They are designed for especially selective crafts work. Everyone knows that they are very sturdy and long lasting tools. The model on the picture is called Victorinox Pioneer Rancher. This one is from the early 1980s and got brass liners and old cross emblem.

The small curved blade is called a pruner or pruning blade and can be used for garden or horticulture work. The harvester model adds on a saw and would make the tool configuration more versatile.

We know that the knife on the picture is designed for selective crafts work that would need such a blade and this can be different crafts work. My impressions with Victorinox are the versatile use of a knife. The model number on this knife is 0.8140.20 and this is the most important to know. If we study Victorinox and the long history then we can see that this blade shape in different sizes has been part of the history very much.

There are different variations of the Rancher knife in history.

The awl used on Alox knives from 1961 is a very good one. It can drill a hole in different materials!

The 120mm continued after the New Ranger. They had Patent and not pat pend. I say pat pend first then patent next. But! Wenger did many variations! :)

The old Ranger 120mm is from 1991, on my 1993 it is pat pend I have seen it on 1991 too and Swissbuck as well! Wenger can be a minefield because of variations

It is a superb question. Wenger used different stamps, some because of european laws. Usually the quality and steel is the same. Which is first? Not sure.
