Alox Victorinox Executive – Gold

This is another Victorinox Executive. It’s a smooth, alox version in gold. Well, gold colored anyway (there actually is a 14kt gold version as well). It is a bit older than the green Executive I showed earlier: it has the older, single leaf type scissors which disappeared in 1975, according to Victorinox.

  1. I take it this Executive, being an alox version (never seen an alox Executive before), lacks the toothpick and tweezers. Is this correct?

  2. That’s correct. The alox versions of the Executive as well as the stainless steel ones (called the Director) do not have the toothpick and tweezers.
