627. Angler Plus

The Victorinox Angler Plus – it’s an one from rare and vintage models, which were produced only during a relatively short period in the past. There are no too much information about this model, I don’t remember any official catalog with information about it. SAKWiki also still doesn’t have information about this knife (I’ve added this model to the full list, but didn’t created a new dedicated page yet).
So, Angler Plus – technically looks like regular Angler model plus additional wood-saw. Current one is a pretty vintage one with old-fashion awl and shackle.

522. Champion (a)

The Victorinox Champion (type a) was a flagman of all 91-mm models before SwissChamp was released in the middle of 1980xx.

As SAKWiki mentioned, it was a very strange practice when the same name Champion was used for the different models – with corkscrew (Champion a) and Phillips screwdriver (Champion b) on the back-side. Usually models with such tools replacement got a different names (like Spartan / Tinker).

418. Wenger Swiss Army 70

When I bought this knife, I thought – it will be probably only one Wenger in my collections. Reasons? It’s a real Swiss Army Knife 🙂

As I remember, initially, when I’ve started to organize my collection, I’ve decided to collect only Victorinox knives, otherwise it could absolutely destroy my budget (and honestly, I prefer Victorinox knives mush more than Wenger ones).

When Victorinox company bought Wenger it was first unpleasant sign for me. Later (~ in 2014) Delemont series was introduced – another one. After releasing Wenger RangerWood as limited model for 2015 year, I can be absolutely sure – Wenger, you shall not pass (©) in my collection… Maybe one.. or two.. or three knives? Who knows?

From SAKWiki:
Knives produced after 2008 (also known as model Swiss Army 70) no longer have the year stamped on the tang, as Victorinox took responsibility for the entire military contract supply.
