What I really love about Wenger is how they make so many specialty models for different niche markets. :) This one is a great example. How many of them must have been made? Not many I'll wager. Great score John! :) 

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

Thats why Wenger Gaint got 87 tools and 141 features while Victorinox XAVT got about 35 tools and 80 features.

Nice score.

Thank you.....Hope to have it within the next few weeks....That is the FIRST one I have ever seen for sale.  Lucky break!!!!

J-Sews: what the the dimensions of the front sight tool?  It is obvious that the flat, stubby end is a flat-bladed screwdriver for adjusting something.  I might have some toys back home that this thing could be useful for.

What is REALLY expensive is the rear sight adjustment tool for the HK-9#/G3 series of weapons.  (I.E.: HK-91/G3; HK-93/HK-33; HK-94/MP-5; HK-21 MG; PSG-1; SP-89/MP-5K).  Basicly, a stubby Phillips screwdriver on one end, a spanner-type push wrench on the other.  $85 is what I paid for it last summer for my HK-91...SHEESH!!!  Probably cost $1US to make.

Now, if I win the lotto, I will look for a STG-90/SIG 550 for this tool to work on...LOL

I will invite the seller to join us.  He sent me an e-mail, said he has a buddy in Switzerland who buys for him and ships them to him.  Said the Swiss to Dollar rate or something is expensive.  $60 is what I am paying for it, and that is no mark up.

Said his friend can get other shooting SAK's.  Said they made one similar for the PE-57 assault rifle (in use from 1957-1990 era before the STG-90 was adopted).  I will ask.  He also said even though this is not marketed like the other more common ones, he said they made alot of them.

The previous poster who said "Wenger fills a niche market" must be correct in this case!!!

Not even 24 hours after I got back home to CONUS in July, I was at a gunshow and it was WONDERFUL to blow money at one!!!

I have roughly 320 days to DEROS and back in the world I will be. 

Believe me, Korea sux if you like firearms. 100% banned for private ownership.  SAK's, it is pretty good as some of you folks found out.  Fixed blade knives, ew!!!

Cool. 8)  I have to take my hat off to Wenger for being willing to make these small run SAKs.

Seller sent me this e-mail when I told him it arrived:

" I am finding that non Swiss residents are not aware of the arsenal stamped Soldiers Knife variant. It would seem as though the Swiss are not impressed with it as they used them and then discarded them. My swiss contact has been able to find one in reasonably good condition after months of looking. I have another shooters knife comming, but they cost $60.oo by the time they get to my door. To an uninformed individual such as myself, that seems excessive. For that price, I would want a new or as new knife. I will send you a photo as soon as mime arrives. best regards, E. Adams"

That reminds me of the Wannemacher's Gun Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma every April and November of each year.  Sea of guns, 11 acres....pure heaven on earth for gun collectors, etc.  Here is their website.....WARNING: be prepared to change your underwear or clean up the drool:

When I get back to the USA after my Korea "trip" is done, I think my best friend and I are going to have to plan a trip here......I have 3+ years of making up to do!!!
