Wenger Mini Grip
« on: August 23, 2011, 03:29:26 PM »
My post in the Gerber forum has ended up being rather expensive!While I still havent found my first full size Gerber,the search has led to me getting a Mini Suspension(more about that else where!),and finding a Wenger MiniGrip! :D

I'd been really excited about this years SOSAK knife of the year,but in the cold light of day,I felt I couldnt justify the money foe a tool I couldnt really carry in the UK,but in reseaching I came across the MiniGrip which seemed quaint but rather useful.

When casing Gerbers,I followed a link which lead to a MiniGrip,and in fine MTo style I paid for it before stopping and thinking :ahhh

Anyway,i5t arrived this morning!












Its the earlier model with the easy open pliers,and didnt inclued a sheath :rant:,but never mind!

First impressions are good,and I'm looking forward to fitting it into my edc rota!

There is no beginning,or ending,and for this we are thankful,cos now is hard enough to understand!

as usual with SAK. there is always a good feel to it... :tu:
it has a nice 'click' sound, nice plier lock and bit storage..and a nylon Wenger sheath.
a bit demure compared to original SwissGrip. just nice when sheathed.
.
only that is in transition to its final owner... ::)shesh... (should get a pic or it does not happens!)..nxt posting..its mnight now..

This is one I've always kinda fancied but never got around to buying one.  Never even played with one now that I think about it. :(  I'll be interested to know how you get on with it mate. :tu:

Me too  :tu:

I had one for a while, mine had the serrated main blade. I'm a big fan of the swissgrip/wengergrip but never quite got the same feel with the minigrip. I liked it, I'm a sucker for fixed pliers, but it didnt suit my needs.

Those are hard to find Reinier. You should get it if the price is right. :tu:

Well it's one of these:

What would be a good price? :pok: It's EUR 65.00 and there's no shipping to the Netherlands (seller is German).

Maybe one of our German members (or Jmora ;) ) is interested?

Think it would be pricey if it were celledor,but then again,it is rare and sexy!

There's a new one in cellidor on ebay for 50+9 shipping with pouch. US only. It's listed under pocketgrip. They pop up every so often at around that price. 5 usd more or less.
