Jan, thanks for the heads up on that judgment against Maxam (B&F System).  That was really interesting -- it was decided by summary judgment, meaning that the counterfeiting was so obvious that no further trial was necessary -- & this one may not have even made it to trial at all.  More unusual, from what I can tell, is that such stiff penalties were brought without even going through the full trial process.  Maxam will almost certainly appeal, & it'll be interesting to hear their argument(s) on appeal.

Victorinox Awarded $9.8 Million In Trademark Lawsuit

MONROE, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Victorinox Swiss Army, Inc., in conjunction with its parent corporation Victorinox AG, today announced the company has been awarded approximately $9.8 Million in addition to injunctive relief in its suit against Dallas-based The B & F System, Inc., and its president, John D. Meyer for infringement of Victorinox’s iconic registered trademark for red-handled multi-function pocket knives. Victorinox filed the lawsuit in 2013 when the company became aware The B & F System, Inc. was marketing red handled multi-function pocket knives copying the famous Swiss Army knife marketed and sold by Victorinox in the U.S. for more than 50 years.

Victorinox wins $9.8M award for #SwissArmyKnife trademark infringement

Ruling in Victorinox’s favor, Federal District Court Senior Judge Jed S. Rakoff of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 22, 2015 granted Victorinox a total award of $9,808,332.44 including treble damages, interest and counsel fees.

Judge Rakoff also granted Victorinox injunctive relief writing in his decision “the public interest will be served by an injunction that ends the likelihood of consumer confusion.” Under the Court’s Order, The B & F System, Inc. and Mr. Meyer are permanently enjoined from further infringements; required to immediately recall from their distributors and retailers the infringing goods; to deliver for destruction all examples of the infringing goods; distribute copies of Judge Rakoff’s Final Order to all of their suppliers, distributors and customers; and, are bound to take other steps as outlined in the Order (Case #13-cv-04534).

hello . im looking to find one of these. Michel Jordi with 18K gold plated corkscrew. I had one given to me as a gift 20 yrs ago and it was stolen from me 6 yrs ago. I have searched ebay and cant find any available. Any help in sourcing one would be much appreciated. :) ( this photo is from IKC site)

Thanks Ron!  Al it is a good looking knife!

Comment by Al Rogers on September 15, 2015 at 18:42

Thanks Ron. If anyone's interested in this knife, make me an offer, I need a camera.

Comment by Ron Cooper on September 15, 2015 at 1:49

This is the pic Al posted of his knife...

I hope you don't mind that I took the liberty of sizing it and re-posting it? This way it's easier for the viewer to actually see it.

BTW, It's in really nice shape for a knife that's almost 60 years old. And, like I've already stated, to a collector of Wenger Soldier Knives it would probably bring you a very nice return for your initial $2.00 investment. You got a good one, my friend!

P7290804.JPGThis is the only half decent photo I can share. The markings on my knife are identical to your photos with one exception. The handles on mine are a darker shade of red than yours. There's minor scratching on the handles and someone did a half assed job of sharpening the blade but it can be saved. Maybe I will sell it, I really need a good camera more. Thanks, Ron and Andreas.

Comment by Ron Cooper on September 14, 2015 at 15:48

@Andreas-LMAO!!! Classic!

Comment by Andreas on September 14, 2015 at 15:14

Hey Al, sell the knife and get a camera!!!

Comment by Ron Cooper on September 14, 2015 at 14:03

Al,

From your description I suspect that you have a 1957 Wenger Soldiers Knife, as Andreas has already informed you. The circled "W-K" stands for Waffen Kontrolle:

 
Originally it was a small stamp in the form of the Swiss Cross (top left), and later - two letters W-K - "Waffen Kontrolle" e.g., "Arms Control"

Depending upon the condition of your knife it could be quite valuable to a collector. These older Wenger and Victorinox knives are becoming scarcer. Especially the ones in decent condition. Does your knife's markings look like this:

From 1957 until 1961 Wenger makes a soldier knife with red plastic plates of Grilon (Grilonschalen - Swiss Nylon Quality). 

Soldier's knife manufacturing Wenger, restyled 1957 model 1951 1957 release

Parameters soldier's knife restaylinga 1957: 
Length: 93 mm 
Weight: 90 g 
Blade length: 65 mm

I hope this helps? It sounds like you got a fantastic deal for only $2.00. Congratulations! And, btw, a bad picture is better than no picture. So, please, post a pic from your "crummy little camera." I would love to see it!

Cheers, mate!
