As a newcomer first of all would like to express my greetings and deepest respect to the forum and all of its members. The issue I open the theme about concerns one knife which was bought around 4 years ago. I have dug inside out all the available information throughout the web including this forum about the knife but did not manage to get an exact title of the model. The matter is about Victorinox Alox "Soldier" but with keyring. Everything including blade/handle size, coommon Swiss shield of more light orange rather than red color, absence of engraving desk, and presence of a date stamp (98) on one side of the main blade and an inscription "Victorinox Switzerland...etc" on the other side tells that it is a 1961 model Soldier knife. But the knife has additional tool - keyring. I have readen many opinions but did not manage to determine for myself - is it a genuine Swiss Army Soldier knife or not? Has it ever been used by Swiss soldiers/officers as an official equipment or not? Has Swiss Army ever made a contract with Victornox on ordering this type of Soldier knife or not? Thanks in advance.
