He is a frendly man and he makes nice knives. I bought a knife from him last year in his little shop.His father has made 1956 + 1957 soldiers model 51 for the Swiss Army. These knives are pretty rare and they have a tangstamp similar to his new knives like the one on the picture. (Image removed from quote.)
Wow! Congrats! This is a very nice and rare find. Röthlisberger was the only company beside Elsener and Wenger who produced the Model 51 and he did it only 1956 and 1957.Now you need also a 57
I didn't know about these. Those look like very nice knives. Is there any other way of getting one of the current knives without visiting the shop in Switzerland?

they also made officer knives, I have this one...notice the tang stamp "ERINOX"
now there are two!
Rothlisberger of Barau, was an official maker of the Swiss Soldier knife in two years, 1956 and 1957. they also made red officer knives like the two in my photograph.
happy to have added another Erinox and also a SAPHIR which was also made by Rothlisberger
