Here is a very interesting Wenger Soldier configuration Alox from 1975. This does not have the WK+ stamp on the emblem or anywhere else on it. We know that these knives were sold private
and for the civilian market too. Official soldier knives for the Swiss army contingents should have a Wk+ stamped scale. The Wenger Si or standard issue was sold at different markets. I do not believe all knives
used in the Swiss Army with this configuration had the Wk+ stamp.
This Wenger knife has been used and at one point the tip of the blade must have been damaged and therefore re-profiled.
It is done nice and it is very sharp. I do not believe it had these damages to begin with and therefore rejected from the depot demands. It is normal to find knives that’s been abused or used hard. Re-profiled SAKs does not have any high value anymore
but when re-profiled like this you get a lot of use out of it still. It now got character, usability and a story with. All the other functions are ok and it’s been re-profiled in a way that the tip does not come outside the handle when closed in. In
other words it will be possible to carry it in a pocket. I gave it a good cleaning and some multi-tool oil for the best functionality. I really enjoy seeing a rescued SAK like this and it is about reusing and resurrecting it intelligently. All the springs
are intact and it is another confirmation about the sturdy design these have.
