In 2009 Victorinox celebrated their 125th Year with the release of the Jubilee Series, that contained several special edition Swiss Army Knives and also some other items. The series had a few unique features:
- A special Jubilee Anniversary Logo: 125 YEARS YOUR COMPANION FOR LIFE was etched into the primary blade on each knife
- The Victorinox cross and shield emblem was printed in a special pattern in gold on red handles
- The knives were packaged in a 125th Anniversary box, that included a red cloth drawstring pouch for the knife
- The Cybertool had a serial number stamped on the liner behind the corkscrew
- The SwissCard was packaged with a real leather Weekend Wallet that included a mirror, and also had space for a couple of credit cards
The showpiece of the series was a replica of the first Swiss Soldier Knife delivered to the Swiss Army in 1891. The Jubilee Soldier model, known as the 125th Anniversary Heritage Swiss Army Knife, was produced as a limited edition of four collections, each consisting of 1884 pieces.
The four collections were destined for different geographical regions in the world, with Collection IV being designated for North America - originally collection III was designated for North America... but it seems a mix up occurred!
The other collections were distributed as follows: Collection I - Switzerland; Collection II - Europe; Collection III - Other Regions.
