Title: Is my Wine Master Olivewood or Walnut?
Post by: FolderBeholder on March 16, 2019, 01:07:05 AM
The eBay ad said Olivewood, the box says Walnut.
What do you think?

Olive, I reckon.

Lisa, these are from my projects stash. Walnut on the left, olive on the right. Colour is a little off due to artificial light, but you'll get the gist.

Also, for reference and comparison, the Wenger 85mm Evowood line is walnut.

Olive, as the wood is a lot lighter that what I've seen walnut look.  Gorgeous btw  :tu:

Thank you both for the input.
Either way, I like the look so it's a keeper....just wish the box matched.

Now that I look at the label, it has 970164FA which means Olivewood...the 70163 is Walnut.

You should be happier with that box FB - As the code and description do not match
Which means manufacturer's error

And these make a collectible much more valuable!!

Thank you both!  One more glamour shot as I am trying to capture its beauty without my shadow making it darker.

Yep Nice one FB - It's a beaut and great photees

I have lusted after the WineMaster since they came out - especially the Olive one
But the price is pretty high - And my other half has a very fancy traditional wooden BO with the same design.
So hard to justify.

Still think they should combine the Cheese Knife and Wine Master - Maybe discontinue the current Cheese Knife
Then bring out a WM variant with the cheese blade, as an additional blade !!

And you know me - Never miss a chance to plug the Wiki - We have a very nice WM page made with photos from MTo members

That's a great idea, adding the cheese blade as an additional blade!
I checked the sakwiki, good stuff!  :like:

It's already established that it's olive, so I can't add much, but I wonder if you tried smelling it and if it has olive smell. I have only one olive handled knife, but I personally love its nice scent.  :)

I have a walnut version that is just as light shaded as olive, but the grain of olive can not be matched in walnut :D

I would have preferred olive, but as a final piece at 70% discount, it's unfair to complain :D

Gorgeous piece!

I love my walnut version but can't honestly remember why I picked it over an olive one...

I can't wait for the 2019 Winemaster damas LE :D

Whoever sold it to you might have had a Walnut one and an Olivewood one and just mixed up the boxes.....I have had knife dealers at gun and knife shows accidentally put a knife in the wrong box when they had a knife model in several different handle materials.

No matter what may have happened you got a beautiful SAK! :cheers:

I did just now try that, and it does smell very, very nice, but I almost think it is a men's cologne smell on mine instead of the wood.

I would have preferred olive, but as a final piece at 70% discount, it's unfair to complain :D
I like your light walnut one.  I paid $85 total, no where near your 70% off deal, but it was a day when eBay offered 15% off in actual cash (not eBay bucks), so when I saw it at $100, I knew I'd only be paying $85 which is a decent savings over new.
I can't wait for the 2019 Winemaster damas LE :D
Me too!  I'm curious to find out what price it will be.
No matter what may have happened you got a beautiful SAK! :cheers:
Thank you Vicman, earlier in the thread we determined there was a factory mix up on the label.  The item number is for Olive, but the word says Walnut, so win-win!

Even though I love walnut, I think you might be better off with the olive. Walnut in my opinion can be a bit boring when it's a small piece.

Now oak, that looks smurfing beautiful on a knife, but you don't see it that much.  :-[

Yes, I think this one is definitely Olive that I have.  And now, on an unrelated topic, I am craving Jaffa Cakes!
