776. Soldier 1961 (2005 year with Charles Elsener signature)

The Victorinox Soldier 1961 was produced not only for military issues, due to its popularity, but also some special runs were produced.
As SAKWiki said, in 2003 and 2005 some of these knives were produced with Charles Elsener’s signature etched on the main blade.
First run (from 2003) of this knife already present in my collection and was reviewed earlier, now I’m glad to announce that now I have both runs, moreover – second one also was a part of package with the well-known book A Collector’s Companion by Derek Jackson.
