Victorinox Swiss Alliances and Battle Series

This special series of seven different knives started in 1983 and ended in 1991, with the issue of the final knife, and a special Battle Series Collection set of all the knives.
Sometimes known as the 'Battle Knives', this series commemorates seven famous battles and alliances from the Middle Ages that established the modern country of Switzerland. The knives have intricate inlaid scale art of each event, and the main blades are engraved with the name and date of the event, as well as a special crest.
The knives were packaged in wooden presentation boxes (see below) containing a serialised certificate of authenticity. There was also a booklet containing a brief description of the event and also a history of Victorinox in German, English, and French, this was only present in the Battle Series Collection presentation case.
Each knife was limited to 9999 pieces and has an individual serial number stamped on the liner behind the corkscrew.
