Finally! I got one of those black beauties. The classic silver alox has been, until recently, the standard issue for Swiss army personnel and has now been replaced by the 2008 version – which I cannot get friends with. I find it especially ugly. Anyway, it’s been some time since I have been looking to find the black alox version. It seems totally unavailable through official distribution canals in Switzerland (!). Thanks to Lorenzo, I could find one over at the FelineVet Shop for USD 28. Here it is, Victorinox’ black alox Pioneer along with its sibling, the silver alox Soldier (here’s a model made by Wenger).
