93mm Silver Alox

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.

Tang stamps update

The knife to the left above is a Pioneer Rancher compared to my most new Farmer. The silver Alox 93mm category share the same emblem evolution as long as it is silver Alox. The other Farmer knives I have are in the old Red  Alox Cross configuration or other colors. Many times in history with Victorinox it seems that emblem changes are related to changes in the tangs stamps. My New Farmer got the new tang stamp that is the ones used for only a few years now. At first it had a big V and now as you see a small v in victorinox.

Functions too

The Farmer is a tool that is considered super constructed. The 93mm Sturdy line of knives from 1957 pretty much can be considered timeless. It is probably one of the best designs and constructions in the entire world. The knife blade is 2,75mm thick.

Evidence update

On the picture to the right you can see the Pioneer X and the Farmer. The left one is the X and it got the same emblem. Maybe the Farmer is even better detailed. It tells me and it is the evidence in my research that this is a deliberate change in the Victorinox emblem for the Silver Alox. It is used for the 93mm Silver Alox category. Once again the emblem change is very close to the tang stamp change. This emblem will or may be used for other categories that said. The silver Alox is the main category.

The 93mm package

Please take the time to check around Sakhome.com and read about the SAKs and philosophies. The Farmer is easy to distinguish by the design, emblem, tang stamp and functions. Just imagine this knife in a survival situation! The wood saw relieves the blade from the hardest tasks. The awl will preserve the tip of the knife blade when you need to drill. The can opener will cut open a can of food + more.




The Hunter Pro Alox is listed as 136mm and it got a very interesting emblem.  The handle got a very large stylized cross and shield emblem on the aluminum and the other one on the blade got the cross and shield Victorinox emblem marked.

Normal types you can find on the 93mm Silver Alox SAKs made by Victorinox. Soldier and Pioneer Ranger models.

It is said that to be able to have a long lasting and sturdy quality you must have a solid foundation. My latest SAK is the example of a die hard warrior that resurrected. In the great hall standing tall! Farmer X……….

10:10 Beautiful functionality :)

23.01.2021 Pioneer silver Alox

This is my latest 93mm Alox SAK and it is not difficult to see what model this is. Yes, it is the Pioneer in Silver Alox. It is just a superb quality tool which could fit almost any demands. This came out of the box with the extra sharpness. On Sakhome.com you can see how I like to learn, collect and research Swiss Army Knives and knives from Switzerland. What is very clear to see on knives from there is the craftsmanship. Factors like the precision, polished parts and the functionality could not be done better. Collecting knives there are not many in the world that is better with the value for the money. The Pioneer is on the top of the list there in my opinion. I like knives from the world too and I believe there many quality products out there. When it comes to the factors I mentioned today it is for sure that the precision for example is not better on knives that cost 3 times more. The quality is the same too. The functionality is very high and there should be no doubts that the Pioneer Range is solid.

10:38 Silver forever

The Pioneer Range got many super nice colors which I like very much. The quality is very high. Silver is a color that probably will be popular forever. I like quality and somehow it is a homing beacon in my life. For work and tasks on lighters it is the smaller categories that are the best.

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.
