Its a reed-scraping knife for preparing reeds for wind instruments. Produced for a firm called Oboe in Switzerland (CH). There was also a US dealer. The blades are 440C stainless, unique for Wenger. Left and right-handed versions. Later versions had the New Ranger grips.

At least one company still offers it (supposedly).

And one pictar,

For some perverse reason, the Wenger in a Victorinox package appeals to me. I doubt I will ever open it.

I was trying to figure out if the badges had been made, I found the art for them but couldn't see them as badges.

Anyway, they are up now.

And your badge has been awarded, congrats.   :cheers:
