These kinds of post are great information. Thanks.
That's a nice model too. Are you on your way to making it into something new?
The above mentioned Wenger fatty is "on attention" and ready for presentation, so I would like to introduce it. As it is somehow close to "Colonel/Oberst", but for sure of higher rank I decided to name it "Generalmajor" (Major-general) (Image removed from quote.)Generalmajor (on top) vs Wenger s557 (below)(Image removed from quote.)Generalmajor (on top) vs "My Troubleshooter" or any Troubleshooter (below)(Image removed from quote.)Stand at Ease ...

Wow, it is the very model of a modern major general.......
Is it just me, or does it seem that the lock is not all that deep and secure?I worry that the lock will be a source of false confidence and an accident waiting to happen. But then, I am mistrustful of blade locks, and just prefer a slip joint and some care when using.
I think your concern is justified. I've only owned one Wenger with the locking blade, and it didn't take all that much to close it up without pressing the unlock tab. Full disclosure, I obtained this sak used, but it doesn't appear abused.
I've tried (with unreasonable/excessive force for that task) to close several 85mm Wengers (including my two mods) and neither of them had closed without pushing the unlock button.
