Victorinox Soldier Knife 1945

A few older Soldier Swiss Army knives are stamped with an E (for Elsener Schwyz) on the front of the blade tang, with no manufacturer marks. We have not determined the exact age of these knives, but they were probably produced not long after the start of production in 1908.
