Cut the buttons from the lid and pop them on the front :D tu:
Believe it or not, I found stud fasteners in the right size !
It means I will not have to cut the straps from the lid and that feels good  :-)

I got them since the late seventies, and never got the opportunity to use them.
Made in Japan, bought in New York City, where I lived at this time. Two bucks well spent.

Now I dunno if y just put two buttons or make some sort of a leather strap.

The box for this is packed away inside a larger box of empty boxes, so I haven't seen it yet.
I do love them both, but I do like the scale richness of colors on the Wenger.

Things I noticed with the two, the Victorinox weighs in at 4.46 oz and the Wenger is 4.40 oz.
My Victorinox has an ever so slight stronger pull of the main blade.

Did you get rid of that white rotating cabinet?
The large wooden one?
It's stored in a storage room.
I'd like it gone though...

Oh I missed this post yesterday!

Do you have the tools to make a strap?
When done in leather, you might be able to engrave/punch something on it?
Like "Heritage ****/1980 III"

Just a strap would be cool too though. Would give it a bit of a luxury suitcase look.

I found the original seller's pics a while back. I bought it in that country somewhere south of here, I believe you've heard of it.

Great family pics! Yes, blade back spring on Wenger is not so strong as Vic's and nobody can bit ebony scales!

Great comparison pics FB!  :like: :tu: :tu:

The handle scales on the Wenger are beautiful. They did a great job of matching the wood grain pattern on both sides. :like:
