Funny how things can change in a short period of time. Since joining here and reading various opinions, I added an Evo 10 and a classic Traveler to my collection. I love them both (especially the Traveler). The fingernail file is great. Also, the scissors are, at least in my opinion, better than the Victorinox version. Nice little tools!

 :D I never owned a Wenger prior to joining the Forum either, regrettably, but you'll find that you'll make up for lost time quickly!  The Traveler is an awesome knife, and I love the Evo's.  I have a Wenger SI on the way....once you start I don't know if you can stop!

I just found out my son ordered a Traveler for me...now I have one of my own!!   :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh :ahhh  I love how the 85's carry, and I've grown to really love Wenger.  I've said it alot over time, but I wish I had known more of them when they were still producing knives.

A local shop has some few wenger,  and for the first time I saw and touched the wenger swissgrip.  Very massif multitool, but not so interesting for me. Also there was a couple of Journeyman, so I bought one , I can't leave it there!

That's awesome! Wengers are getting harder and harder to find.

Nice knives!
For those wondering, the Wenger shown by Gim with the squared wrench is actually the very rare 1.547.13 model.
It was covered here
https://forum.multitool.o...sg1051398.html#msg1051398

I had contacts with Wenger about this knife in the past, but they couldn't provide more informations about it.

Unknown model...I've named mine a "Deluxe Traveler".

Still a big fan of the Traveller and the Pocket Tool Chest (or variations of these two). Most of the others are gone or going. The only other one that gets carried occasionally is the mod I named "Brian", which is essentially a Traveller with inline Phillips and carabiner.



My current users:
Victorinox: - Spirit X, Climber Small, Alox Rambler, Orig. Outdoorsman, Voyager Lite, CT34 & 41, Compact, Manager, Salesman, + mods (Sheepsfoot Duke & Mega84)
Wenger: - Traveler, PTC + mods (Brian)
Gerber: - Balance, Dime + mods (MP426**, DEsTroyer, MP6000**, TurboDiesel**, Neutered Octane**)
Leatherman: - Sideclip, KF4, + mods (Fuse-ilier**, Knifeless Wave**)
Others: - Vise Grips LC6
** = knifeless

I carry my Traveler probably more than any of my other Wengers.  For some reason the blade on it seems twice as sharp as any of my other SAKs.

I like the sound of that mod sir!!

Since I only buy SAKs that I NEED and it's Summer and all, I thought an ice scraper would come in handy.
Love for Wenger??? What's not to love?
