Old Wenger Knife of 1935

This is a old Wenger Knife with brown fiber scales and with the rivets visible.
Wenger changed from brown fiber to red plastic handles on their standard models some time in the mid 1930s and also changed the screwdriver/bottle opener about that time. 
So this knife is from 1935 onwards.
It was in a bad condition because it has some type of glue in the front scale and a lot of dirt inside the dividers. It took me a few hours to restore it, but it worth the time that i spent.

Victorinox Horn Handles Knives

I always like the horn handles (scales) in a Swiss knive.
So through the years i manage to collect some of them.
I only have three Swiss knives with horn handles.
A Swisschamp with a old magnifying glass, a old Spartan of 1943 and a old 74mm Cavalier variation.
