2012 Black Alox Pioneer with Red Shield
2012 January Black Alox with Red Shield Pioneer. It is uncommon to have the Red shield background on any Alox knives other than with Silver or Red anodizing. The Red shield background with the black anodizing creates a nice contrast that highlights the shield more than just the regular silver outline. Limited to 50 pieces, numbered and dated, the engraving on this model runs parallel to the length of the blade, and appears on the reverse of the blade, which is different from the previous numbered special-runs.
