History

The official issue Swiss Army Knife was redesigned in 1961, resulting in a 93mm Alox scaled knife which was issued to troops through the year 2008.

In 2008, to commemorate their 100th Anniversary, Wenger build a Limited Edition replica of the original 1893 Soldier's Knife, named the 1893 Heritage Swiss Army Knife. This knife was limited to a collection of only 1,893 pieces. The replica has wood colored Fibrox scales, and is sold with a special box that includes a small copy of the original technical drawings in both French and German as they were found in the Wenger archives. The presentation box uses a magnetic closure system that allow the box to be tilted vertical for display while keeping the cover open. The Knife is also magnetically held in, so when the box is vertical it does not fall out. Two rear holes are provided for mounting the box in the vertical position.
