  1. I haven’t use a Swiss Army knife in decades. I used to own a Wenger & was always disappointed that the blade was forever blunt. I’d sharpen it but the edge closes against the steel spring which meant it always opened blunt from having been ground into the spring while in my pocket. Toothpick and tweezers got loose, fell out & lost. The scales cracked & fell about. I think I went through 3 of the same model in about 18 years. I don’t know why people think they are any good. They won’t hold an edge and fall apart way too fast. Maybe all pocket knives have poor longevity I don’t know about other brands, but a 6 year service life is too short IMO.

    1. Thanks for sharing your years of experience on a Wenger pocket knife. I could say, you loved that model for sure otherwise it’s impossible to go for the exact same model repeatedly for 3 times.

      In my opinion, 5/5+ years of longevity for a pocket knife regardless of the brand is not bad.

      You should give a try to the latest Swiss Army Knife for a better experience.

      Best of Luck!

  2. Are you sure that the blade edge touches the spring on closing? The base of the blade has a flattened piece to align with the spring producing the ‘click’ on closing to create some free space between edge and spring. I have Wengers and Vics and both never failed me on this.

    If really so, you will probably get a new and good one if you bring it to an authorized dealer.
    I don’t know about the 2 or 3 year warranty mentioned here but the leaflets in my Victorinox packages say guaranteed for the lifetime of the product against 5 years on the Wenger. But since that is Vic now too, I wouldn’t worry.

    Luckily, all external parts like scales, toothpicks and tweezers can be replaced, so no need to buy a new knife every time, just touch it up.

    1. Thanks, Theo for your remarks. I didn’t mean that the blade edge touches the spring on closing, rather it could be tough for the older builds from the early 19s. It could also happen to those who have somehow tightened the slip-joints for any of their comforts which is not recommended btw.

      And for the warranty, it is a lifetime for materials used in the knife and any built errors. For the other parts like any electronic components, it’s 2 years. Damage caused by normal wear and tear, misuse, or abuse is not covered by this guarantee.
