 «Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft» NEUHAUSEN. The first steps of the SIG Sauer arms manufacturing company are connected with the Swiss Wagon Factory company, created in 1853 by Friedrich Per, Heinrich Moser and Konrad Neer. After the company took first place in the competition of the Swiss Federal Ministry of Defense, it received a contract for the production of 30,000 copies of smoothbore weapons. After some time, the company changed its name to "Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG)" ("Swiss Industrial Company"). In the 1970s, SIG Sauer began work on the design of short-barreled weapons, the distinctive feature of which was excellent quality and reasonable price. Swiss laws restrict the production of firearms, so those who seek to expand their business need to look for partners abroad. As for the company "SIG", the German company "Sauer & Sohn" became their partner. The partners began producing their first weapons in 1975 (SIG Sauer SIG P220). Before the Second World War, Sauer was mainly engaged in the production of shotguns and hunting rifles. During the war, they produced short-barreled weapons, the Sauer 38H pistol, but then stopped this activity. Having entered into a partnership with the company "SIG", Sauer returned to the market of short-barreled weapons. Today, SIG Sauer is the largest of the five companies and one of the largest arms manufacturers in the world. It is also ahead of many well-known manufacturers in terms of the pace of development in the United States. It has expanded its production methods and increased sales by 50 percent since 2005. SIG Sauer recently increased the number of factory employees by 3 times, and also invested $ 18 million in cutting-edge production equipment.


The cleaver was used in the Swiss army until the beginning of the twentieth century. It was almost completely copied from the French cleaver model 1831, except for the shape of the blade – the Swiss used a saw on the butt of the blade.
