MODEL DESCRIPTION: The 100mm fiber Soldier Swiss Army knife was standard issue for Swiss soldiers from 1908 to 1950. Unlike later SAKs, it is built entirely from plain carbon steel rather than stainless steel. During this period, the Soldier was produced in equal quantities by Victorinox (usually labeled Elsener Schwyz) and Wenger (usually labeled Wenger Delemont).
It also has a stainless steel blade (marked Victorinox) rather than the standard-issue carbon steel blade (marked Elsener Schwyz). These days, we take stainless steel for granted, but it was much more a luxury item 75 years ago. The 1940 Soldier knife is 100mm (3 1/2") long, 25mm (1") wide, and 18mm (0.72) thick. It weighs about 121.7 grams (4.3 oz).
