I've had the Wenger Tool Chest Plus for over a year now. The blade is sharp, and the tools are well selected. This really is a useful knife.

This knife compares competitively with the Victorinox Swiss Champ, almost tool for tool. However, the Tool Chest Plus has some tools which the Swiss Champ does not have, including a working compass, a wrench for nuts and bolts 8mm or smaller, and a nail file (instead of a small blade), and the magnifying glass has a real glass lense. The scissors and pliers are also different, and arguably better, since they use Wenger's springless system and the scissors are self sharpening--very cool, you should check the springless system out! Adding to the cool factor, the pliers have a slip joint, just like the pliers in your toolbox.

Now for what I don't like about it. These are small things, but they detract from the perceived quality of the knife. The back springs aren't as strong, so the tools don't snap shut the same way as a Victorinox knife, I miss the pleasing *click*. Also, the Wenger knife doesn't have quite the same look of precision about it. The square edges aren't quite as square. Finally, this knife is wider than the Victorinox. That might be a plus or a minus, depending on whether bigger is better for its own sake. I found it a little too wide when doing some tough cutting, but for everyday stuff it's great.

I have always had swiss-champ victornox swiss army knives. I lost my last one and decided to buy this Wenger because seeing it on paper seemed even better than the Victornox, since they say that the scissors are self sharpening, the pliers are adjustable to fit a bigger size object, it has a hex nut wrench, the scissors and pliers don't have springs which should make it last longer, and a nice compass just in case I would ever get lost. You might be seeing it and it might seam too good to be true, and that is the way it is. This knife is poorly designed, it has independent tools that make it bigger and heavier, which could be incorporated into one. The scissors are self sharpening all right but because they are serrated which is very inconvenient even to cut paper. Having the other system instead of springs for the scissors and pliers makes it last longer but the whole thing moves up and down when you try to open it and close it making it less precise and some times harder to put away the tool, and in reality you can buy a replacement spring from victornox for less than $3 if it ever breaks, if you don't believe me go to their website and find out. The expanding pliers seam great on paper but in reality they are a pain to use they cant seam to stay put on one position when you open them. The pliers which you might expect to be rugged and sturdy are thin and more flimsy than the scissors, they bend under very little stress "normal use" and once they do they will never close right, ever again -remember they don't have springs!Read more ›

I've been carrying one of these in a leather belt pouch since the 90's, and am lost without it. The compass is the only tool that I've found to be less than useful. The main blade sharpens well, and holds an edge. The scissors require an occasional tightening of the pivot screw, but that isn't a problem since I added a Victorinox eyeglass screwdriver to the corkscrew. I've been given Leatherman tools, Gerber multi-tools, and similar devices, but none of them have replaced "Old Faithful."

Wenger has updated their Tool Chest to include Evo grips. Very ergonomic. Makes the tools easier to use than previous versions. The lock blade is easy to operate and very safe when closing as it has a half stop. The non-edged/file secondary knife has the file portion outboard now so less chance for marring the main blade. All the tools function flawless.

The only minor change I would suggest would be to return to previous placement of the tools next to compass. You need to be aware of how you open and close the metal file and compass arm as they can contact if pressing too hard. (current real estate is: fish scaler, magnifier, saw, metal file/saw, compass previous was: wood saw, metal saw, scaler, mag, compass). The action is smooth and tight so I haven't scratched the plastic yet, but I could see how it could happen.

Anyhow, with the retirement of Wenger SAK name (big mistake in my opionon) and if you haven't got a Wenger yet for your collection. Or if you are just now thinking about getting a Swiss Army knife; this would be the one to get

Unfortunately, the product listed and shown in the sellers listing is not what I received. While I fully expected and paid for the Wenger 16906 Tool Chest all I got was the little fingernail cleaner knife with a toothpick!
