The climbers everyday replacement ,
« on: January 07, 2010, 06:44:21 AM »
Well after asking lots of questions and going over what things i use on a day to day basis ,i decided on either the wenger highlander or the commander, i really wanted a small tinker but seem pretty rare over here, well i went for the commander as now combining it with the clutch on my key chain i have what i need, my climber will still be used for camping trips etc but ill use the commander for day to day stuff, i like its smaller size and ive put a tooth pick in my spy capsule plus have tweezers on the clutch so all good, i hope to get use out of this before i change my mind  ;)

Your Wenger Commander should have both the toothpick and tweezers in the scales. Take a look at your Commander on the ring attachment side. You should see two tiny tools there just large enough to pull out with a finger nail. Wenger accessories are rather hidden compared to the Victorinox accessories, but they should be there on your Commander.

Wenger seem to have been a little less concerned with the T&T in the past, certainly my Commander doesn't have them either.  If you have a look through this 1991 catalogue very few of the SAKs are detailed as having them.  http://www.sosakonline.com/images/stories/Catalogue/Wenger_1991.pdf

Fast forward to 2009 and almost all Wenger's SAKs have them but, interestingly, still not the Commander (see page 17).

Hmmm...

SAKWiki states it has both.

My Commander including both Snife knives have the tweezers and toothpick.

Possibly some sort of economy scale then, or is it one of those weird Wenger things.

Where'd you get that SAK Climber, if you don't mind me asking?  I recently sold one exactly like that on eBay, lol.  I also have two of the Wenger model I'm selling NIB, though mine have the transparent red body and say UNDNER on the blade.  Must have been some kind of promotional

Nice gift.  I was just curious because I don't see many with the Switzerland logo on the body.  Matter of fact, yours is the only other one I've ever seen.  Thanks!

The Commander looks like one of the first SAKs I bought, I think the package said it was called a Spartan though and have seen seemingly identical knives advertised under both names.

 Things like this confuse the heck out of simple country boys like me ???

Great knife anyway, Zed :tu:
