We all know about the Victorinox RangerGrip 74 with corkscrew, but I just found this one with a screwdriver instead

The original Wenger Ranger Grip existed in both configuration - 74 with corkscrew and 75 with screwdriver, but I can't find any infos about a Victorinox RangerGrip 75 in any catalogs or in Sakwiki ?  ???

Apparently nobody here has seen this variation...

But...
On the Facebook Swiss Army Knife Collectors group, someone suggested this:

- I guess it's from 2014, between January when Vic re-branded ex Wengers and the moment they reduced the number of 130mm models. Vic blade and Vic shield replaced Wenger ones in January 2014 on all of ex Wenger models that Vic continued to produce

Hi Zanza, I presume you've had a look below the scale to check someone did not replace the CS with the Phillips?  :think:

Unlikely, but we should rule this out as a possibility if possible.

Also, Victorinox is not immune from making mistakes. it is quite conceivable that at the time of the change-over, a few units were assembled and snuck through QC. If you had the original box, it may well have been marked a 74.
Education is a journey that starts when you realize that knowing a little about something opens the door to the universe.

Max I have checked and this definitely not a mod.

Unfortunately, I don't have the box with it.
