Control stamps after repairs in the arsenals

When a soldier’s knife was repaired in an arsenal it received a control stamp on one side of the handle guaranteeing that it was again fit for service.

We have little information on this particular subject, the two stamps below are known and referenced in the book "Le couteau du soldat suisse" by Thierry Deladoey.

“Mystery” stamp

We have recently discovered a triangular stamp, hitherto unknown, on a "Modèle 1951" knife.

We assume that this is a different kind of control stamp following repair, but we cannot affirm this with any certainty.

This information is currently being verified.
