0087 – Wenger Standard Issue (1954)

This is a fibre handled 100mm Wenger Standard Issue (model 1951). These knives, with minor changes over the years, were issued to the troops of the Swiss army between 1891 and 1961. This one is from 1954.

The ’54’ stamp on the blade means this knife was issued in 1954.

The circular stamp on the handle is the W-K stamp, which means WaffenKontrolle. This means the knife passed the Swiss army quality inspection.

0082 – Victorinox Money Clip

This is a red 74mm Victorinox Money Clip with smooth alox scales.

As you can see the scissors have the adjustable screw pivot. Victorinox stopped using those in 1991 (they use rivets since then), so this knife is at least 25 years old!

On the back of the knife is a money clip.
