Day 18, Wenger Mike Horn Souvenir Evolution 17, quite a mouthful of a name. Like the tool set and unique recyclable material scales.

First time I see this model.  :like: :like:

Day 20, Wenger SwissBuck Taskmate II, had to include one of these, scales are durable and unique, clip point blades and adjustable wrench. So wish Buck and Wenger would have been able to extend this lineup. Really believe it could have been far more successful.

Day 21, Have to include a Victorinox Yeoman, not a mod, real deal with aftermarket DLT scales.  Always like EDC’’ing 2 or 3 layer SAKs. This is one my all time favorites. Could look at it as a Compact Plus Plus.

Day 22, Wenger Biker, I like all the speciality SAKs from Wenger. Maybe they were not all always practical from a business perspective, but they are definitely fun to use.

Day 23, Have a few SwissChamps, but my favorite of all by far is the Victorinox Super Timer. The champ tool set plus an old school clock is the perfect combo for me.

Day 24, Have quite a few Wengers, today I am presenting Wenger Master Evogrip. I do not see this one very often and think it has a decent tool set plus the Evogrip scales. People seem to really like or hate these scales. I like them, but I like most SAKs.

Day 25, Victorinox SwissChamp XL, model was only made a few years. Big fan of the addition of the electrician and hawk bill blade. Divot repair tool is ok, but I doubt I’d want to be carrying this knife in my golf pants. Also the pharmaceutical spatula is better for spreading butter than working with pills considering the width of the tool (sterile tongue depressor works just as well).

The pharma spatula was handy for stirring hot coffee with sugar.

Love the variety I see on this thread, and too do agree with the Swissbuck and the creativity of Wenger tools.   :tu:

Day 26, Here is a SAK that shows I am a true collector. Wenger Bernia 504 (Sewessential Tool). Got this one missing the  seam guide, but the rest of the tool is intact.

Day 27, Bigger is always better, at least in Texas, Victorinox SwissChamp XLT. Bit driver is one of my favorite tools of all. Why they do not include a magnet in it to make a universal 4mm driver boggles my mind, but this is a super easy mod.

Day 28, Wenger Minathor, I am not a watch collector by any means, but I use this SAK all the time to change watch batteries, adjust watch bands, repair toys, etc… The Bergson watchmaker tools come in handy for a whole variety of other “micro” projects. Bought this a long ago as well as additional bits that fit this driver. Highly recommend if you can find one at a semi reasonable price on the secondary market.

Day 29, Victorinox  SwissChamp XAVT.  Advantages, includes everything and a kitchen sink. Disadvantage everything and kitchen sink means you have to have gorilla hands to use it. A collector’s model.

Day 30, Wish I had the Wenger Giant for the finale, but I do not. Instead I present Wenger S54 EvoGrip and Tool Chest Plus with soft grip scales. Both of these knives have it all.

I was wondering what you were going to show for your day 30.  Those are great ones to present in lieu of a Giant.  :tu:
I sure enjoyed your journey so much that I am thinking of starting one of my own as I don't have that badge yet.  :cheers:
