Wenger production variations
Searching for evolution variations for dating is important and part of a hobby, there are some differences on Wenger
knives that one just usually must just call production variations. I call them production variations because they may just be differences from the production when the knives are made.
It is not rare
that knives even from the same batch may have differences on them or from the same year and so on. On the picture you can see three Wenger knives from the early 1990s and they look very similar next to each other. The differences is only seen when you take
a very close look in hand.
I have been searching and done study on these variations and all three of these knives got small differences on the long can opener, this on the curve of the edge part.
This you can see if you draw around it with a very thin pencil.
All of them have small differences in the length of the tang on the corkscrew! From my information this is typical Wenger but not always.
The tang stamp on the blades may have small differences in them like the depth of the stamp. This is also production variations at least on these knives.
It is very typical to find differences on
other functions as well but not always.
