I really hated the Wenger silly model numbering (lack of
There was some logic, but then it all went to pot with other models - and it was very confusing - and I just could not work it out .
Eg the 79, 179, 55, 155 all have the same basic toolset blade, saw, openers, cs, awl - The differences being the blade type - I think -
- But how do you know which is which?
And then a completely new set of numbers for the same toolset with Phillips
For me a single
tool name (or even number) for a base model based on the main toolset - with alphanumeric
suffixes for the (blade) variations would have been a much better way to go.
Eg O for One handed opening, P for plain edged, S for serrated etc etc
I was really hoping Vic would sort that out when they took over the Wengers - But they just kept those horrible numbers
At least they are heading the right way with the Wenger
- Even if that in itself is a little confusing - ie A Victorinox called Wenger
But they missed another great naming opportunity here in the 65mm range
- Why isn't the Nailclip 580
just called the Swiss Clipper
- Its old Wenger name - and very nice and descriptive
- And why isn't the Nailclip 582
just called the NailClip
What's with those silly numbers
why does the larger model have a smaller number anyway.
Sorry everyone rant over -
- Very happy if someone can explain this to me !!
But I will take a lot of convincing - Ooops there I go again
