You know I have been thinking about using it as my EDC.   :tu:

Does anyone know the model of this knife and a possible value? Thanks again everyone.

  I get a kick out of getting use from a tool that's older than me.


I know what you mean there. Lovin my long awl Pioneer and I get a silly grin every time I go to the range with my 1903 manufactured M96 Swedish Mauser. Something cool about a 110 year old rifle that will still shoot MOA.

Captain, what did you use to polish the tools? I just got a 1930ish Wenger and would love to make it shiny.

Depending on condition, scales, missing toothpick, tools scratches?, if you'd post pictures with the tools opened, age 50s?, value $5.00? :think:


 :twak:

 :twak:  :twak:I'd wait to see the tools opened, for unseen condition I'd value for ~$5.00-$25.00?? :drink:

I'll take 3 of those beauties for that price.  :D :pok:

Value: $25.00?? :think:

I wish I could help, but I did not polish the tools. That's just how they looked after the cleaning.

condcup. Thank you for helping me find a value, but the ebay post is for a different knife. Looks the same basically but you will notice differences such as the file being different. The shield is different (could be from pocket wear) as well as the exposed rivets. Thank you for the effort though. It is appreciated.  :salute:

I just need to find out what exactly I have here model wise.  :think:

The one shown by condcup is missing a bail, which was snapped into bushings. The earlier version with rivets like you have either came without a bail (like yours) or had a stronger pinned bail.

The heavy duty file was also intended as a snow scrapper/mud scrapper.

The age of the knife (1950s) was before Wenger had names for their models. It probably had a model number, but I have no information on that.

Similar knives that I have range in price from $20 to $100, depending on condition, number of blades, when bought, and luck. Suspect yours would be in the upper part of that range.

Nice find!  :tu:
