Wenger 100 Year Anniversary Standard Issue(Sold)

Here is a Wenger Standard Issue or "Soldier" knife that is given to members of the Swiss military. This one is a special 100 year anniversary model with engraving "100 Jahre" on the blade. It is a 1990 model year knife with the tang stamp on the back of the main blade reading "90", and housed in a very nice luxury presentation box. While most Wenger Standard Issue SAK's have a bail this one does not. I just happen to have the original order reciept and COA for this one. The scales are made of an aluminum alloy for durability. There are only 4 blades that open.

1.Main Knife Blade
2.Can Opener

Red Alox Pioneer Pruner Victorinox

Here is something a little different. It is a Victorinox Red Alox Pioneer Pruner with Avenor company logo and blue cross shield on the front. This knife has only the 2 blades, 1 being a rare pruner type blade. Very few Victorinox knives have this blade. The "Alox" handles are an aluminum alloy material and feel nice to hold and use. This model sports the older style plain cross shield in blue to match the company logo.
