Yes, you have a very early one (I think).  The chart I have of Victorinox tang stamps put the Armee Swiss from the late 1890's to 1930's. and the Inoxyd in the 1930's.
That is assuming this chart is right. At any rate, you got an oldie and goodie. The model is possibly the "Standard Swiss Officers" knife; known today as the "Spartan".  The tool design has changed over time, but the same "type" of tools. Others with more info or correct info will chime in I'm sure.

Going through my knife drawers and found an accidental collection of Zwicky advertising knives look good all together.

All with different Tang Stamps





I particularly like the wrap around celluloid one these break so easily

I once bought a 234K with 1945 engraved on the blade and was very upset to find aluminum liners on it.  As we all know, the transition from nickel silver liners to aluminum liners took place in the early 1950s.  I first thought that the knife was rebuilt after 1950 and the liners were replaced.  However, upon closer examination, I did not find any traces of repair, scales had traces of shrinkage characteristic of that period along the length and near the rivets.  I remembered that exactly the same knife is in the collection of my friend from the USA and asked him to check the material of the liners, they also turned out to be aluminum.  I recently saw another knife from this period 1943-1946 on ebay and it also had aluminum liners.  So it looks like the aluminum liners used by Victorinox are much earlier than 1951. What do you think?

Some guys here have same 1940s knives with aluminum liners too. That what MiniChamp said few years ago:
“I remember JAZZBASS writing about having in his collection early-1940's SAKs with aluminum liners and speculating that they may have been the result of copper alloys being hard to obtain during WWII. (I don't recall him ever mentioning the length of these SAKs, though.) Other than this, what I know is that I have two early-1940's 83mm SAKs with non-anodized aluminum liners and one 83mm SAK from around 1950 (I think) with the 1946-51 can opener and anodized aluminum liners.”

That’s a labor of love. It’s 10 years older than me, so using it is a bit of a learning curve.

Is there anything prettier than mirror-polished celluloid?
