Top customer reviews
The knife is nicely made: the tools all open and close with precision, the fit & finish seem good, and the blades are considerably sharper than the blade on a Victorinox knife I recently purchased. They're not as sharp as I can get them with my sharpening kit, but they are close enough that I won't bother trying to improve them right now.
Time will tell on the durability, but Wenger (like Victorinox) gives a lifetime warranty. Time will also tell whether the button for the blade lock will catch on my pocket - but it seems unobtrusive enough to not be a big issue. I will post back after using the knife longer.
Update after a few weeks: the blade lock button is no issue - does not catch in pants pockets or cause any other problems. It is an elegant alternative to the locks on the larger Victorinox knives, and the only way to get a locking blade in a smaller Swiss Army Knife.
Another update: The price from one Amazon seller dropped to $15, which is stupid cheap for this knife - so I bought another. It is just as good as the first, though the main blade was not super sharp and was ground a bit unevenly -- certainly good enough for any conceivable use, but not perfect. Took 15 minutes with my Sharpmaker kit to fix it up, which is easier than returning it.
This knife has a great locking feature on the main blade and a decent edge. People say that Wengers aren't as sharp as Victorinox knives. This is true, but they are still sharp enough for what you will use them for. As for the ergonomic scales, they're cool, but not necessary for a three inch handle. I would suggest the Victorinox Spartan if you're between a few different knives and this assortment of tools is what you're looking for. Another thing to be said for the Spartan is that it's about $15 cheaper than this knife. That being said, this is still a great knife. I'll probably use this more than my other SAKs because most of my collection has become more of a hobby, and I don't want to mess them up.
For all it's features, it's relatively small and light. I actually carry this one and constantly find uses for it during the day. I should have had one all along. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
