Soldier's blades in other knives or repurposed
« on: June 08, 2018, 11:39:36 PM »
Victorinox and Wenger both made too many of a specific year's blades and have had to repurpose them once the year ended and soldiers knives had to be made with another stamp.

I've had a few and recently got more and I'm wondering if you guys and gals have other models with year-stamped blades? Has anyone made any mods with year-stamped blades?

Let's see them!

(apologies if a thread like this already exists... I searched a bit and didn't find any)

I'll start with a few...

4 Wenger Profesional with 1981, 1987 and 1988 blades.




Victorinox Pioneer Rancher with a 2000 blade



Not sure if it counts but a Soldier 91 which came back from the Victorinox spa with a brand new 27 years old blade they apparently had "lying around"...

Interesting, I have heard of Vic putting them in Pioneers, wondered what Wenger did with them.  I assumed that they put them in SI's for sale to the public.
Nice pictures (and SAKs).

Are those professional series smooth alox?

Nah, just plastic... They're basic professional series from Wenger... And I have yet to see one with a blade without a year-stamp :D

Very cool Apprentice! Love that 07 blade! (I have a particular affection for 7s tho :D )


So? Nobody else? No modded knives with year-stamped blades?

If you fly, I'll buy!  Twenty Euro sounds pretty fair, so if you pick it up and don't like or need it, I'll take it off your hands.  Like your signature says, "buy now or regret later...."   :)

Apologies.

Really cool! Thanks for the pic!

I'm truly wondering if anyone ever made a mod using a BY-blade...

Anyone aware of such a thing having been made?
