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.

16.12.2020 inspiration

Today we finally had a stop in the heavy rain and I had a longer walk. I also needed some inspiration today which I found among the collectors on the web. Sometimes it is necessary to get a little boost in the interest. Wenger had many nice handles with different designs. It is also so for me that many functions can be art in itself. It becomes functional art then and on the picture below you can see some different Wenger models with heavy functionality.



I like when collectors post pictures so therefore I made the picture above. Wenger was a truly wonderful maker of Swiss Army Knives.  I am happy every time when people recognize this. Wenger got a special place in the hearts of many users and collectors.

The 120mm continued after the New Ranger. They had Patent and not pat pend. I say pat pend first then patent next. But! Wenger did many variations! :)

The old Ranger 120mm is from 1991, on my 1993 it is pat pend I have seen it on 1991 too and Swissbuck as well! Wenger can be a minefield because of variations

It is a superb question. Wenger used different stamps, some because of european laws. Usually the quality and steel is the same. Which is first? Not sure.
