lol. Seems like most agree that Wenger isn't up to Vic's quality in general. Victorinox absorbed Wenger after Wenger got into financial trouble several years ago, made some changes but a lot of the tools (ie blade, scissors, caplifter) are still the same. You can easily find used Wengers on eBay. It's funny, when I was a kid I was always bummed when a store's Swiss Army Knife section only had Wengers. I remember asking my dad about it, I don't really remember what he said but I do remember saying that Wengers are Swiss Army Knives too.... he always bought Victorinox for me though, but did get my brother a Wenger Trout. These days I just love carrying a Wenger SI and a few 85mm, but not too often.
The best Wengers ever made were produced after Vic bought them. Vic quality and Wenger innovation in full flower.(Image removed from quote.)Sent from my SM-P900 using Tapatalk
Here's a bit of vintage Wenger love... an old 1960s (I think) Allsport 93mm. Apart from a slightly tweaked screwdriver and a ding on the small clip point blade (which should come out with a bit of work), it's in amazing shape. I did a Hobie sandpaper polish job on the two blades and got out the worst of the scratches. It's got a wicked looking saw! What a cool old knife.
