1961 Models “Waffenkontrolle”

The types A, B and CWK” control stamps are always located at the centre of a large Swiss cross and engraved on the metal side of the handle. This specific type of mark is reserved for category 1 and 2 knives, and replaces the screen-printed Swiss Cross on the categories 3, 4 and 5 (also on some civilian "Alox" knives).

Note that from 1988, the "WK" stamp disappears at the same time as the acceptance test.
