when wenger stopped making knives victorinox continued making some of the old wenger models, under different names

Al : "Women!"

Hi thanks dks  :tu:
It's just strange that one has a w on the back and
one has a v but it's the same model knife

Thanks dks that's some excellent information on sakwiki  :like:
I still can't find out why one has got the v and other w on the back
But both have the victorinox logo on the front  :think:

Even I'm confused at why they didn't just leave them as Wengers.  Most auto manufacturers usually have a number of different brands.  However, Toyota did eventually merge most of the Scion models into the Toyota lineup a couple years back (which most were sold as Toyota in the rest of the world anyway).

If you mean on the blades  or some other part they may be using leftover Wenger parts, but I am sure some sak expert will be able to say exactly what is happening.

This is just a special order by a shop. The w is the mark of the shop and nothing to do with wenger
