I made a trip down to JRE Industries today after seeing the very limited edition red alox Victorinox Lumberjack on their site.
Each blade is individually numbered and bears the name of the guy responsible for convincing Victorinox to bring back this model, SwissBianco.
The knife is slightly smaller than the Farmer which I carry every day and it is also a layer thinner. This makes a very lightweight package that would fit well into a PSK or even a daily carry blade. It's got the large blade, a saw, and the multi-lifter tool (the new style cap lifter.)
I was hoping to hand-pick a winner but these, being assembled in Switzerland, are all fantastic. The first one I picked up was every bit as good as the next three or four so I took the first one I laid hands on.
I think this one is going to see plenty of pocket time going forward.
Thanks for reading,
