The difference between the models is the scales: The Companion having very thin, smooth Alox scales, while the Alox Classic has thicker scales that are textured.
There was also a Companion SD version, which, like the Alox Classic SD, has a screwdriver-tip on the nail file rather than the nail-cleaner tip
- Pen Blade - Side 1
- Nail File - with cleaner or screwdriver (SD version) tip - Side 1
- Scissors - Side 2
- Keyring/Split-ring attachment point
The Companion has smooth Alox scales, and no scale tools due to the thickness of the scales.
The scales were available in many colours, eg red, blue, green, black and silver. See Identifiers section below.
- Length: 58mm
- Width: 5.6mm
- Weight: 16.2g (no keyring version)
- Earlier versions of the Companion were available with and without the Keyring.
- The Companion-SD version has the Nail File with the screwdriver, rather than the nail-cleaner tip.
The Companion was available from the 1970s in its many colours.
It is quite collectable due to the attractive colour variations, which were not always available.
An earlier version of this knife, with the older style scissors and nailfile, was known as the Executive.
It is a discontinued model.
