You next goal, the Wenger Beer Walker.......(also known as the Basic 66 by snooty types who fuss about things like accuracy and facts)

I just discovered the Wenger Basic 66 and Classic 66. Would love to acquire one in decent shape. Unfortunately the only one I could find on eBay was destroyed. Blade had been sharpened on what appears to be a brick. Not even worth the $18 they wanted.

My Wengers. On balance I like the smaller size of Wenger for few layers and larger Victorinox for more layers.

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

I have found this one today, model commander with stainless steel scales. Not listed in SAKWiki in Wenger metal series.
Anyone have some info about it?

I have a Basic 66. Cool knife. I like the combo tool much more than Vic’s. I prefer it as a can opener & it retains the normal Wenger SD lock.

My one issue is that the spine of the saw protrudes above the scales. It looks and feels a bit weird.

I’ve had this Wenger Standard (1 02 03) for over 20 years. Haven’t carried it much until recently, very nice in the pocket. Here it is with my Tinker.

For medium-size SAKs, I prefer the Wenger design. After a few years of being irritated that I couldn't get the exact tool loadout I wanted, I just built my own.

Technically this is a Victorinox, but it's based on the Wenger EvoGrip line:







I appreciate that it has a locking blade, unlike almost all Victorinox designs.

I "love" my Wenger/Victorinox "Evo Grip" 14, which if I understand correctly was/is originally a Wenger design. It has the (IMHO "better") Wenger scissors, and is the old Wenger standard 85mm closed as opposed to Victorinox's 91/"93"mm, at any rate.

I also "love" my Mini Champ. However, I'm not sure if it started as a Wenger design before Wenger was bought by Victorinox.

Serious question:
Is/Was the Mini Champ originally a Wenger offering before they were bought by Victorinox? I've never seen another Victorinox (or Wenger, that I know of) with the cuticle pusher blade, or the mini Wharncliffe blade.
A curious mind wants to know. 😷👍
Yes. That ugly old thing in my avatar is I.

mini champ (58mm) has always been from Victorinox, Wenger had the "pocket tool chest" in their 65mm line : https://www.sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Pocket+Tool+Chest

I’m a Wenger Collector.  My family came from Switzerland and there are Wenger’s in my family tree.  Gerber’s too, for what it’s worth.

The Wenger was my first SAK. I think it was about 25 years ago. And thanks to SAKWiki I found the model that I starded with 🤗.  It was the Commander snife with Zebra scales. I had in my mind that it was some tiger stripes, but it wasn't.
