Victorinox normally uses X55CrMo14 in their blades. This is highly stainless and reasonably tough. With only 0.52 % carbon, it will not hold an edge for any length of time. I have not seen HRC figures for this, but the low 50s would be about the best expected. This is not a steel that I would want in an EDC unless I was going to meet with a TSA agent on my way to the plane. If you add $15 to the price of the most expensive, that amount will get you a Leatherman Skeletool. This has a blade of 420HC. I don't know if Leatherman does 420HC as well as Buck, but my Leatherman blades have served me well. I have a rather ancient Swiss Army Knife. (I also have what someone told me was a French Army Knife. I bot it at a flea market. The corkscrew works well, but I have had no use for the small white flag that folds out opposite from the corkscrew.) My SAK has been relegated to EDLID status because of several Leathermans that I own. If I collected these, I am sure that I would buy one. I find it attractive.
Figure if I'm gonna pick up a traditional swiss army knife I should at least get a special edition xD
Note to those looking at the SD. Unfortunately the Alox versions while slightly thinner lack the toothpick and tweezers of the standard SD models. It's something I didn't realize when I switched from regular SD to Alox. Bummed, but the Alox is still on my keychain.
Solid and weighty, and the red is really pretty. My sister loved it! Got her the Classic :)
Need this in a Pioneer X model.

Definitely. Only way I’d buy one.
STILL have not changed the pictures, even tho the pictures show a different nailfile than what you get atleast on the Cadet and the color is wrong. This is simply pictures of the regular red alox, not the Berry Red limited edition. UPDATE PLEASE!

Thank you
I just received an email about this drop advertising it. In the email the old pictures have been used yet again...
First one I’ve had with the AL scales. Very nice examples.
Something odd about the nailfile. Not as advertised

No the darkness you see on the caplifter is just a reflection. The nailfile is a type of nailfile, bet with just groves in the metal instead of the prevvious unevenness stamped into the blade

Hmm, looks like they changed the file design last year for some models. I didn't realize that... I see the new design in some pictures but most still show the old one. I initially thought yours had a mistake of some sort.

I found one page that show pictures of the same model with both old and new file design!

Dear Massdrop, if it says "limited edition" in big red letters on the packaging maybe put it in a box for shipping instead of an envelope so the packaging doesn't get crushed and mangled by the post office's mail masticating machines?

Same problem with me, but otherwise I am extremely pleased with the product.

Yes Massdrop, the packaging these come in from Victorinox is PART of the collectors item. Mine was dented.....grrr
how large is the “large” blade?
Meh. How boring. Come on Victorinox! I’ll probably still buy one though haha
The pricing of these are different from the orchid version, it seems. At least for the Cadet and Pioneer upgrades

The orchid was a fail. Look at the olive from 2017 and the blue from 2015 Those have done very well.
