Day 274

Elsener Soldier - 1890 model, 1901 variant

(no year stamp but it has the old circle-less cross army quality control stamp from the 1901-1907 period. This knife is at least 111 years old)


Its a soldier model nr 1908 not 1901. That you can see from the shape of the blade. That means its age is maximun 110 years :-)

That cross stamp was used between 1901 abd 1915, so your knife is between 1908 and 1915.

Thanks for the info!
I didn't notice the circle-less cross stamp on the 1908 page in my book.. And they don't show the blade shapes in there... I'll add this to the long list of labeling mistakes from the year ^^

Day 278

Wenger Soldier '1908' model - pre 1921

This one looks absolutely mint from top to bottom apart from the blade which definitely looks restored. The scales are just perfect and the brass is shiny all the way including inside the knife.
This leads me to believe this knife was restored by Victorinox(or maybe Wenger if this was done a while ago) with custom-made scales. What surprises me is the WK+ stamp... Does anyone know if Vic can apply the stamp to restored/rebuilt knives?

Also I dont think I've seen this front/back tang-stamp combination on non-civilian 1908s...

That must have been a very lazy and short minded soldier not using his knife  :like:

What a beauty  :like:  i suppose its also possible that it's been in a drawer all its life and used now and again to open boxes, i have an old race knife around the same age that looks brand new, it has horn handles so that might make a difference, i think it all depends on who owned it and what use it got.

The brass should still have tarnished a bit, no? I'll post another picture of it tomorrow...
Nice 96 btw!

I didn't know that you were considering pioneers as soldier-like knives... In that case I might have joined you this month as well :facepalm:
