The boss lady asked me what I wanted for my birthday, this year. So I sent her a link to an Alox Victorinox MiniChamp. Well, Amazon changed the listing, so what she saw was the red celidor, which is what she got.
Still stoked about the MiniChamp, but the search is still on for an Alox.

Moral of the story is to be sure to spell it out FULLY; draw a picture, whatever.

Do love her for it.

Just a great little all around knife and I have a feeling you find that alox :)

No sir, made that. 

If you can carry a pack of gum, you can carry a MiniChamp.

I've never had a MiniChamp, it does look like a good EDC, so many models are too thick for a pocket.  I like the little 'biner lanyard, much nicer than the typical bead chain.  Did it come with that?

Thanks, DL.  The Alox  is thinner.  I don't really go in for the pen, I'd rather have the thinner toothpick scale, which is why I normally remove the pen side and replace it from a doner knife.  Bought 10 sets of scales off of eBay which gave me 10 front scales to use.

BTW.  I was kinda pleased with the pic.  Seeing how it was taken with flash while on my lap.

You've got a great wife -- & that's a great little knife on its own.  The Alox would've been heavier anyway, right?  :)  The photo really caught my eye, so I wanted to make sure to comment.  And happy birthday, J.J.!

Generally, I get a cheap classic and swap scales.  Not really a pen guy.

Oh, I love MiniChamps.

Just wanted another Alox to EDC, as they're thinner.
