One Man Army - Show your Soldiers
« Reply #601 on: April 25, 2021, 12:24:17 AM »
Seems fitting to share my Australian Army issue MT’s being the 25th April - ANZAC Day

The day Australians and New Zealanders remember and honour our fallen service men and women and thank those that serve and have served our country.

Lest We Forget

Shelham clasp knife 1992
Vic BO Spirit circa early 2000’s
Whittingslowe clasp knife pattern 2, issued 1945 - early 70’s

A great resource:

I've only 3 at the moment, a '67 and '96 Soldat, and this little beauty, an '06 Vic.  Love the Soldiers!

G'Day,

I have managed to add to my Soldier collection over the last few months. The home detention has been pretty hard on my wallet!!! Three new Soldiers and a Limited Edition 2018, butchered by the owner. I got that one for an excellent price. I must say the red is very nice. A much deeper shade than the "standard" Alox red. I no particular order:

A Wenger Delemont with no date on the blade, I do like the Wenger version. I removed the bail after closing the blade on it twice.  :rant: :rant: :rant: I guess it happens if you are not used to having a bail on a knife. The blade has a little nick out of it, but hey that happens if you are careless. The steel on it is slightly darker than the SAK version. This is my dinner SAK.

Next up is a 1973 Model that I got from an inmate. I wanted a similar version to my BY SAK, with the non shiny tools and the hole at the bottom. This one goes to work every day for food prep and general cutting duties.

The 2018 version, butchered by the owner. Other that the removal of the lanyard bit the rest of the tool is brand new. He must have used a dremel to get the bit off and missed some spots. I "cleaned up" the sharp bits and uneven filing. Sadly he did not mask the red bits and there are some anodizing missing on the ends. This one will be a user, so I don't stress about that.

Lastly is a 2011 Soldier. I got this one with the Wenger from a bloke that got them from his dad. He did not want / need them and I got them again pretty cheaply. I don't think he was aware of the Wenger being more rare in Oz. I have a 2015 Soldier too, but the blade on that one is not a smooth as the 2011 version.

So all in all I nearly have a Soldier from each decade starting from the '60's when I was born. I only need one from the '80's and the current 20XX. These will be added in time. The tally so far:
'69
'73
'97
'04 - Son's BY SAK
'06
2011
2015

Pics or it did not happen!!!    :D :D :D

Cheers, Pete
