No 80mm category on SAKWiki. Could the precise length be 82mm maybe?

Thank you for your answer,but I measured it precisely once. It's really 80mm in length,I've never seen a wenger SAK of this length.

I think this tang was used by wenger after the 1970s, so it should be a relatively new model.But I didn't find any information about this SAK ???.

Exactly 80mm, nothing on the backside, peened through the scales... I don't know Wenger to save my life, but could it be something like Vic's gardening line? It's got that kind of look to it.

Do we know how old it is?

thanks mate ,Judging from the tang of the SAK, I think it was not earlier than the 1970s,and gardening series are single-sided grinding edges,This SAK is double-edged. :)

Could it be a handmade piece? For example, many technical companies have apprentices who have to make by hand a piece of machinery or a special model for their exams. I can image that an in-house student of Wenger made this knife as part of his study or exam.

I see it that way: thats a common standard vintage wenger size and shape, used around 1930 - 1950. Someone just replaced the mainblade with a newer blade, maybe wenger did that job by themselves because it looks quite well done. Victorinox does the same thing when they don`t have spare parts from vintage models.

Great buddy,I think what you said is very reasonable ,But there are two questions:1、If it's made by Wenger,so what is the purpose of wenger's making such a SAK?  2、Was this blade made of earlier parts and printed with a new tang?

It's quite possible what you said,If that's the case, then he's done a great job.  :tu:

My two cents : funny-looking bail. never seen one like this before. No swiss cross or similar on the scales.
Could well be a one-off from a third party knife maker after the original spring and/or liners broke.

Montblancs and Maglites are black, swiss army knives are red.
