Roger,

You write "it is an pioneer, an 93mm alox scale sak, black hardanodised".

Will this be different from existing Black anodizing? That is will it be the equivalent of Type-3/HA Milspec anodizing?

Thanks!

MSRP is CHF200. They seem to be already sold out at Victorinox. Check with your local (or internet) Victorinox dealer, they may have them in stock.

I've had my Damascus Pioneer in my hands for less than a day, but it's very nice! The treatment and polishing is nice, the Damascus steel pattern is very nice and visible.

A real nice surprise I never would have guessed would appear from Victorinox this year, or maybe any other. It only needs scissors, and HA scales to be a perfect EDC. I might change my carry combo though just so I can carry this one.

we wait on them to arrive in usa.

the scales are hard enough for edc. any alox will scratch on one point of use.

relative soon more damascus will show up.
