This little SAK looks like a good stocking stuffer or gift for sons, nephews, scouts etc.

6 bucks aint bad. Shipping is 3 IIRC. So, i ordered 3. So that was about 21 bucks and change.

It does to me.

At $7 each for gifts there is nothing wrong with them.

Personally I have no use for a dedicated fingernail cleaner.

I have a classic on my work keychain. SuperTinker in my box. Opening envelopes, plastic packaging. Leave the Kershaw or Spyderco where it is.
I've found that the secretaries and technicians love them as gifts.
Ladies really love them for their nails. There is a clipper model for that that I've gifted to nurses and my wife.
They pretty much rave about it.

In the past I've read that Wengers were inferior.
But they have been the same company for a long time now.
I own both.

Corvette and Volt are both made by GM doesn't make them equal.

The Victorinox Cybertool 29 is the must useful pocket knife I have ever owned.

Every Wenger I have owned has shed the scales or the scales cracked at some point.

I have carried the same Cybertool 29 daily for the last 14 years, along with a variety of 4"+ folders.

All that said I am not disparaging your deal as gifts for people who can use such things, I am just not one of them.

If you work on things like small electronics, household appliances, cars, sights etc. it can not be beat. It is to my estimation the perfect size "pocket" knife, with very useful tools. As a lifetime knife user I give it my highest recommendation.

They split the Swiss .mil contract for the knives from 1890-2005, when Victorinox acquired Wenger.

I EDC a Victorinox SwissChamp and I've had the older Wenger and Victorinox Classics for years.

One the smaller ones, I've had the scales fall off, or crack on both brands, since keychain duty is hard on the plastic, so I wouldn't rag on either of them.

Still, I guess I'm a Victorinox fan, even though it probably doesn't matter all that much, these days.

Personally, the Wenger in the OP has an atypical shape that goes against the traditional shape of the Classic line, from years back. Price is great, though.

I am not a hard use person so it doesn't matter to me.


Side note

I will say I've had a wenger watch for a zillion years. Only battery changes.

Wenger does have that ergo grip thing.

I don't mind it.
