For sale is a 1987 issued Royal Dutch Navy knife (KM 87). The Dutch armed forces issued versions of the Victorinox alox Soldier on a number of years. These started in 1983 and 1992 was the final year, because in 1993 they introduced the green nylon scaled knives.These alox Soldier knives don't have the year of production stamped on the tang of the main blade, but carry a unique stamp on the top scale that includes the year of production. The scale stamp also includes " KL " an abbreviation for Koninklijke Landmacht (Royal Army) or " KM " which means Koninklijke Marine (Royal Navy). The knives were all Silver Alox and have the silver Swiss Cross logo on the top scale. The army issued the alox Soldier in 1983 and from 1985 until 1992.
The navy version was only issued in 1987 so this version is extremely hard to find. The condition is used but overall quite good. Take a look at the pictures and make your judgement.
