The Vagabond Alox edition was introduced in 2012 as an exclusive for the dealer Swiss Bianco, who commissioned a special run of these knives with copper and silver scales.

- The Vagabond was reintroduced in December 2012 in a limited quantity Alox edition , exclusively for the dealer Swiss Bianco. The knives were produced with copper anodized handles, as well as in the standard silver anodizing. The tools in this version are the same as the regular version, however the tool arrangement differs from the Cellidor version (technically making it a three layer model! - See notes on the two-layer page). It does not include the toothpick and tweezers in common with Alox scaled knives.
This model (toolset) has had three evolutional changes based around the combination/opener tool.
- Flat screwdriver with no wire stripper notch
- Flat screwdriver with wire stripper notch
- Phillips screwdriver with wire stripper notch with corresponding switch in the nail file from nail cleaner to flat screwdriver tip
The first version was also known as the Mate and became available in 1995. The wirestriper notch was added in 1997, and this could have been when the Vagabond name was first introduced. The Phillips screwdriver was introduced at a later stage.
