'Bout time I assembled my army and 'Showed my Soldiers'  :salute:

Just one Soldier for each of the major generational changes for me:
  • 1942 - 1908 Wenger Soldier - Fibre handles
  • 1954 - 1951 Vic Soldier - Smaller frame - Fibre handles
  • 1962 - 1961 Wenger Alox Soldier - Red handles with WC stamp and hollow rivet
  • 1972 - 1961 Wenger Alox Soldier - Silver handles with WC stamp plus Swiss Cross
  • 1979 - 1961 Vic Alox Soldier - No WC stamp, Swiss Cross
  • 1995 - 1961 Wenger Alox Soldier - With bail
  • 2005 - 1961 Vic Alox Soldier - Swiss Cross only - no hollow rivet
  • 2012 - 2008 Vic 'new' Soldier - 111mm Trailmaster design
I have got a few others - Like my family's birth-year Soldiers and a couple of old pre 61 ones that I may restore or do something with
And I don't really care if the Soldiers are Wengers or Vics
And I am sure there are other minor or even major variations: eg stamps - I would quite like a 'VICTORIA ELSENER SCHWYZ' tang stamped early Vic alox Soldier; tool widths, PAT stamp etc

However I am happy with my collection!!

Man, that 62 is really awesome.

I'm selling a '70 with the Schwyz stamp btw...  :whistle:

Sure - Thanks for the interest - These OK?

And thanks guys - You helped me - I just discovered it's a '63 not a '62 - My DB was wrong  :o

Does that lessen your interest ???

So Vics never had the bail? I know I've seen some Vic Soldiers with the same style lanyard as the Pioneer.

Some Vics were sold with bail to civilians on Soldiers, Pioneers, Farmers.

And with three bails, you'd never want for one ever again. Imagine that my friend.

That collection needs more bails doesn't it, Mags.

Hey btw, just saw DTT's video presenting the BAK you sent him. Spiketacular!  :like: :like: :tu: :salute:

Any perfect collection needs more bails than SAK's IMO. Just in case.

DTT was after a BAK so I engaged Bloodhound mode and found him one. At least there are two BAK's in the US now.  :tu:
