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 ?
