    This should be a Wenger Security 13, which is a close cousin to Wenger Alpine Backpacker.

    and so your tool set up is that of a classic 13

    which leaves the question of its white scales...
    the imprinted logo graphics on its scale
    makes it highly probable that it is a specified
    custom order for a corporate premium??!

    I told another closer look at the Classic 13, and GIRLYmann is right, it's indeed the Classic 13. The larger picture posted earlier was probably the Classic 132, with the flat phllips in place of the nail cleaner.

    understandably, the problem with
    identifying saks
    is that they all look alike but for subtle
    differences.
    and looking out for these tiny differences
    in detail can at times get absolutely frustrating.
    if only these compamies had stamped
    out the model numbers; but i suppose
    it would have been unswiss like
    to add to the production cost. :)

    ahhh... like so many things on this planet
    which we only come to learn to treasure
    once they are completely gone.
    could it be because we only understand
    the value of rarity with declining numbers?
    :)
    hopefully, its still not to late in the game
    to obtain and save worthy wenger speciments to stuff on board
    one's knife preservation "ark" :)
    indeed wenger had some unique
    offerings which warrants a second look now.
