When brands truly appreciate their customers, they tend to please then with the pleasure of discovering new product creations every year. Victorinox became master of extending the endless boundaries of its creative universe. Since 1884 and the company’s creation by Karl Elsener, the foundation of all creation was set thanks to the original Swiss Army knife design. And since then, the company developed a fantastic and innovative range of products with beautiful designs. This year once again, Victorinox delivers a new Limited Edition series under the Alox collection. Here is our review of the Victorinox Classic Alox Limited Edition 2021.

The Victorinox Classic meets Alox, a Love Story.

The Victorinox Classic is probably one of the most well-known product around the world. It is the standard for 58mm pocket tools. The Classic was first introduced in 1935 without the toothpick or tweezers, which were added in 1942 to all models. Two main designs were created within this range: The Classic and the Classic SD. The difference between the two is the nailfile tool. In the Classic you have a nail cleaner tip and in the Classic SD, you have a ScrewDriver (SD). The overall pocket tool is the perfect companion for every day’s adventure, no matter if you are in an office or in the middle of a wild forest. Its size fits perfectly in your pocket or even as a key ring.

The celebrated Alox scales have reached near cult status, thanks to their unique surface which is pleasing to both hand and eye. The Alox material has a strong importance in the history of Victorinox. First introduced for the Pioneer knife in 1957, Alox was a key feature of the Soldier’s Knife which was redesigned in 1961 and used until 2008. After being punched from aluminium and embossed, Alox scales go through a process called Eloxal which uses anodic oxidation to create a protective layer. It is this final layer that allows for the colouring of the scales.


The appeal of Alox is in its merging of aesthetics with functionality – its attractive embossed surface make the pocket tool both lightweight and easy to grip, and the hardened oxide layer helps to protect against damage and corrosion. Every year, Victorinox brings a new limited edition with a different colour. In 2021 the Alox Limited editions sport a Tiger Orange colour.
