Mystery Wenger
« on: September 23, 2016, 03:19:21 AM »
I'll post a pic later tonight...not with the knife right now.

My sister gave me some SAKs (and a couple fake SAKs). 2 of them are Wengers.

They have openers, large blade, nail file, corkscrew, awl on both. So Commanders basically. Or variants thereof.

One I don't see on sakwiki tho.

One has toothpick and tweezers and the metal logo. The mystery one has the printed/screened on logo, but no scale tools...the Classic 7 supposedly has scale tools...but the real wierd thing is the cap lifter. It's non-locking (non safety whatever) and therefore doesnt have the "patent" stamp on it.

Didn't see anything about this variation and I thought somebody might know.

It doesnt appear to be a counterfeit Wenger, but I've never seen this cap lifter on an 85mm Wenger.

Turns out neither of them have the "safety lock" type cap lifter. I have one that's almost 30 years old that has it...does that mean that both of these are even older than that?

The locking cap lifter was introduced around 1984-1985 so this one is probably a few years older. I have a few without that lock too.
