Wenger advertising art

Here are three nice Wenger knives with advertising or company name.

Wenger 65mm and the 85mm category knife, I always have the collector curiosity about what the advertising is for. I searched the internet on Biotrans 2009, it seems the convention was held in Switzerland in 2009 and is scientific related.

Optiswiss is a company in Switzerland for lenses and glasses.  The NailClip got the Wenger  company internet address on. It is a NailClip 580 with translucent scales on. The Biotrans got the Classic 85mm main functions . No toothpick and tweezers in this black scale model. It is very beautiful looking.

The Optiswiss 65mm got the basic functions you will find on the Esquire knife. During the last years more people collect advertising knives, there have always been collectors of knives with advertising on, but more people collect them now. There are different areas people want, for example military or special company knives, one will always find knives printed and ordered directly from the factory and you will find independent companies that made the advertising or print.

For me it is fun with any advertising or logo knives, it is a modern art. The impression i get is strong since it is a Swiss made knife.


Jeg synes alltid det er spennende med reklame kniver, hvor de er laget eller for hvilket selskap som de er laget for.

Hoved funksjonene på en Wenger 85mm kniv, moderne kunst sammen med reklamen.

Andre siden på 85mm kniven! Notice the tang stamp with the W or three knife logo.

One of the special developments by Wenger from the early 2000s and up is the explosion of new designs. One of my favorite 85mm knives by Wenger is the models with icons on the scales. This can be embossed, inlays or pad printed. The use of icons or different identifications used on SAKs enhances for me the design and presence. The use of different camo systems can also enhance or increase the design but also serve a function needed in the outdoors or identification for an interest.

Please take a look on my Wenger icons page and take a look on AP Blaze and Snow 50 page with under- page or the New Ranger pages for further information.

Hi! Good observation. Yes it seems there are some differences on them, both Wenger and Victorinox.

Hi Trond! Question, do you know if victorinox at any time reduced the surface of the nail file like wenger did? I saw this in a couple of classic SD nail files

I would say on the economy line without sewing eye up to 1987. With sewing eye 1985-1987 until today. The economy line got variations. BR

Hi, good observation. The economy line does not follow the regular line. Some times it is close like the sewing eye can be 1985+ couple years on the economy.BR
