    so when my grandfather passed away i got a bunch of his stuff. in one of his tackle boxes i found what i thought was a large swiss army knife. so i went on there web site and tried to find out what knife model it was. well i went though all the models and couldnt find mine. i cant find any model numbers on the knife or names. its the standard red.

    it has

    cork screw
    reamer without the hole in it
    small flathead screwdriver
    can opener
    bottle opener
    philips bit
    magnif glass
    what looks like a smooth saw
    rough saw
    file with metal saw
    large blade
    small blade

    any help would be great

    You have a vintage Champion, which is the predecessor of Swisschamp. "Smooth saw" is the fish scaler.

    so apparently i have the champion with chisel. it appears to be pretty rare since they only made it for a few years.

    I have what I think is a standard from the 80's. However it has a keyring, and an eye hole in the awl. I have only seen no rings or no eye online. Is it a standard? Where can I find scales without the toothpick and tweezer slots? Mine obviously has neither. Thanks.

    You can get a replacement toothpick and tweezer from a couple places online.

    Hello everybody. I' m trying to identify my Wenger Swiss knife my grandfather gave me many years back. It is a Wenger Delemont model without keyring as you can see in photos. It seems in "Basic" series of Wenger but it HAS with toothpick and tweeser.

    Anybody help ?
