I have organised it into sections
Any suggestions/comments/feedback gratefully received
I believe that "Ulli's Advertising SAKs with year stamps" belongs in "Dating Resources."

Hello Everyone,

There is a new Book out for Swiss Soldiers Knifes from this year.
It is in german and contains a lot of Informations. Therefore it is not cheap (Fr. 100.-).
It is quite rare at the moment and only to get from the author (which I happend to know).
So, it is hard to get and I was lucky to get some.

The Name is: Das Schweizer Soldatenmesser.

Thanks - Looks interesting

My German almost covers the cover - But not much more - English version would be nice

But Wow 100 fr (chf?) - That;s expensive - I guess it is self-published1

You are kind of right, it is was printed in a low number and sold over a e-bay like platform in switzerland.
We will see how it is developing. But I think the 100.- will not go down any time soon, or if there will be an english version.

But the author will develop the book.

A new book is always cool!  What is new in it compared to the previous ones?  By the way, what does it say about knives with SMV / E and SMV / W stamps?

There is a Section about those Blades with the one Letter Mark. There is E, W, B, R, and II.
Sertain is, that E is Elsener and W is Wenger. B and R is not prooven, but could be Bühler and Rietmüller. Who is behind the the II Mark is unknown.
On the Soldiers Knives those Blades where used for replacement. If a Knife was repaired in a cerain time (around 1908 to 1920) they used replacement Blades with those short Stamps.

Another Section is about the SMV Marks.
There are two different SMV Marks. Those where Special Runs for the anniversary of the Swiss Master Knivemakers Assosiation. They where given to the Members of the Guilde.
Probbably for an early anniversary and a later one. E Knives where produced by Elsener and W ones by Wenger.

If there is the need of further Informations for Swiss Soldiers Knives, I am Happy to assist.
But you have to bear with my english, I am still learning.

I Put the first 4 Pages of the Content here:

Hello SAK118!
Can I ask you one more question please? Here’s mod.1901 by Forges L&C Vallorbe with marking on handles 1911 and 238966. I guess 238966 can be a serial number of Rubin-Schmidt rifle (made in 1899) but why year (?) 1911 this case? End of army service ? Maybe these marks were made after the service for sentimental reason (btw tools are nickel plated like many knives from later period). What do you think? Thank you!
