 Some of you noticed that there were no ALOX articles last month- the first time in quite a while that some ALOX model or another hasn’t been shown off! Well, for those of you who didn’t get your fix last month, here’s enough ALOX to hold you for a bit!

Every once in a while someone spots one of these for sale and wonders if these are indeed issued to French Troops. I have wondered the same thing each and every time someone has asked, and now, thanks to Ptisuisse, we have the answer.

 Anyone in Canada who spends any time biking, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, or camping is probably familiar with Mountain Equipment Co Op. They are a large outfitter up here in the Great White North, and a usual shopping spot for me. In fact, they have been the supplier for a number of articles here in the past- articles like the Wenger Sharpener for example.



 And now for something completely different! Some time ago I mentioned that my phone was “like” a Swiss Army Knife in that it performed a number of different functions that made my daily life a lot easier- things like multiple forms of communications like email, voice calls, text messages and so on, coupled with web browsing, calculator functions, e-book reading, document viewing and editing... the list goes on. Well now I’ve gone one step further and have an actual Swiss Army Knife on my phone!

 In case anyone hasn’t gotten the word yet, frequent contributor PTHYCRPG, aka Rick has been doing a lot of charity auctions on these are of interest to SAK collectors as they are all quite collectible, and especially of interest to SOSAK members since the charity Rick has chosen to donate the proceeds to is our one and only Felinevet!

I recently got an amazing gift from a member over at it's a plaque for displaying SAKs!
