0039 – Wenger Director (SOLD)

This knife is no longer in my collection

The 85mm Director is one of the more remarkable models from Wenger, with its most characteristic tool being a telescoping pointer which can be used during a presentation.

The pointer is about 30 cm when fully extended.

There are only a few models that have this old fashioned telescoping pointer: the Director, the Manager and the Pointer. Wenger also has a model with a laser pointer.

0030 – Victorinox Rover (SOLD)

This knife is no longer in my collection

This is a green 58 mm Victorinox Rover. It is similar to the Classic but has the scissors replaced with a Cap Lifter with flathead screwdriver tip.

The “Masters 2001” inscription refers to the 2001 golf Masters Tournament, where Tiger Woods won this tournament for the second time.

Because the Masters 2001 inscription is on the front, the Victorinox shield is moved to the back side.
