This is my latest Wenger knife and it is a really interesting one. It is an evolution Golfer 56 with number 1 56 49 300. This one is date labeled on the box 05 2011.
First I would like to talk about the icon on the scale with the swinging golfer. During history this icon has seen different types with the crossed golf clubs and the square
with golfer in it. This icon is new and was first used on the new developed Classic 85mm Wenger knives then the Evolution. There are some catalogues on the internet that you can use to date them.
The tool configuration on this knife was already listed in the 1991 catalogue and different names for it has been used. Golfer 56 or Golf Pro for example and different colors on the handle scales. The Golfer 56 with Red Evolution
is absolutely the latest one according to my research.
It is very important to remember with Wenger that inventions of functions can have variations and one cannot
be too bombastic about exact dates for them. The Combination tool is one of Wenger special inventions and can be used to open cans, open bottle caps and it got a flat screwdriver tip.
The Golfer 56 is a special purpose tool for Sports and got the main tools for such tasks. Green repair tool, club face cleaner and shoe spike wrench are tools for repair, maintenance and comfort during golfing.
This knife is a special purpose SAK but also a tool that can be to identify with an interest. The Evolution model may be from 2008-2009. It may also be earlier.
