This month’s collectable is something of great interest to me, despite it really not being all that special overall. It was the defining factor in all of what we have built here on SOSAKOnline, the SOSAK Forum at Knifeforums.com and other sites that have spun off from this one. Since I wasn’t the originator of SOSAK I can say without a doubt that there would be a Secret Order of Swiss Army Knives, but I imagine it would have been very different from the one we have today if it weren’t for this knife.
Many thanks to PTHCRPG for the Canadian Ranger decal in the background!
One of the most important features of a SAK is it’s ability to “do it all” in a small package. This month’s knife is the living embodiment of SAKdom and something of a sleeper model. It isn’t a flashy model, it isn’t a large model, and it’s even one the minimalists out there don’t talk about much- the Compact.
Rather than go with another regular issue model this month I decided we should try something different. So, I contacted Tim (Felinevet) and see what he suggested. After rejecting a few different ideas (I wanted something really interesting this month), we decided on the 108mm Safari Series Solo and Solo Plus!
UPDATE: ALOX Lumberjack order form is now closed! If you didn't order one, please contact Felinevet, although his stock will be limited.
+Bianco has done it again! While the newness of the recent re-issue of the Yeoman model is still fresh in our heads and hand, Roger is hard at work collecting orders for a limited release of the exclusive ALOX Lumberjack!
This is the first in a new segment dedicated to showing some of the interesting pieces in various member’s collections. I am starting the ball rolling by including an interesting Wenger Commander from my collection, and I invite others to submit pictures and info on interesting knives in their collections for members to enjoy.
