What is this?
« on: May 04, 2021, 11:37:38 PM »
Seller says this is a Wenger, but it's unmarked. I personally think it may be German.

I have less than $20 in it, so even if it ain't, it looks like I may still have a decent knife here.

Are there no markings on the blade?

Completely sterile. Seller says there are none, and I see none.

Do you have it in hand or are relying on the pictures provided?

The grind on the secondary blade looks like a Wenger

Unmarked is a bad sign IMO.  In my experience, any maker taking even a modicum of pride in their product will mark it.

Wasn't mentioned anywhere.  To me, what looks odd is the combo of old-style can opener with a cap lifter. Most of what I've seen with fiber handles has just been a straight screwdriver.

That is interesting but it may be a transition knife with both openers,that is, with both bottle and can openers.

 :dunno: I have no clue.  Those nail nicks are weird and not ones I've seen before.

Well, whatever it is, for $20 you get at least a nice conversation starter.

Definitely. Hard to go wrong at that price. It would be nice to trace down its origins, but hey.

This life is merely a staging ground for eternity. Are you preparing for the rest of forever?

That's my name, not my financial status  - which is certainly not "rich" :D
