Apparantly the they produced the first pocket knives in Stainless steel in 1919. model 112. during the following years other models and tables knives were added, then spoons and forks.
Hi,Great compilation! I'll add this to the Wenger Company page on the Wiki. I'll review each not and see if there is more I can add from their Centenary book. I think you should note that the original Ranger series in 1990/91 was not marketed directly in the US, but through Buck Knives until 1998. I believe while they had the contract with Buck they were not marketing the same knives in the US under their own name. I also recently saw mention of the Viceroy in a 1981 Boy's Life Ad. I will post it soon.Also interesting, is in that ad Precise claims the "Pointer" is the largest SAK made. I'm looking for one of those models, but don't have one yet.
