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!

Sorry for the delay.

The Number is the Rifle Number for sure. The 1911 I don't know.
There are a few possible answers. But I miss the Weapons control mark. It should be where the 1911 Mark is.
So I think it is a civil knife which was used in the service and the solder maked it for identification.
That is the most possible answer.

In case of the book, the secons edition is out now. This is in german and english now.

Hello there,

I’ve been trying for a week to identify one of my dads vintage Wenger, he passes away ten years ago so I can’t ask him.

The main reason I’m having difficulty is that the main blade is not one of the usual ones and the small blade (almost like a watch opener) appears to be brass

If anyone knows what it is that would be amazing coz I’m going crazy with this one and my research is getting me no where

Similar to the Wenger Graft 06 maybe?

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say I was lucky to get a copy of Stephan's new book.  It is an amazing collection of information and an obvious work of passion -- a must-have for the serious or casual collector of Swiss soldier SAKs.
