Working in a 9-to-5 office job, I was always intrigued by the Wenger's Business Tool, as it seems to combine all of the most frequently used stationery tools in one relatively compact package. My curiosity was also helped by the fact that Business Tools is sometimes "credited" for Wenger's financial troubles, and subsequent rescue and take-over by Victorinox. I simply had to see what it was all about! The trouble was to find one of these curiosities sold for less than a king's ransom. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I was lucky to buy one from Dennis (WH867 on forums), and here are my first impressions.

The Waffenkontroleur patch is from 1995 until 2007.  I always like to
add that little extra to the knives. This patch was issued to full time
military personal or civil workers who acts as quality control or
specialists for complex weapons systems like Stinger, M-109 artillery,
special sniper guns, etc.

The Vintage Champion I picked up a bit ago made me start looking at some of the changes the tools have gone through over the years. Because I'm a total geek for stuff like that, I thought I'd share some of my observations and hopefully get some insight for others who like this kind of minutia as much as I do.

When I was in the market for a UC a number of years ago I put out a
post looking for info and received a number of replies. Alan
Tischler has had extensive experience in using these critters and
the majority of the information comes from him. At the end of PART
II of the message I will discuss what I purchased as well as SOS for
the different models. SOS = source of supply.

    This month I'm making a lot of hooplah about my latest project, a new site called, which is all well and good, but what is it, and what's it all about?  In a nutshell, it's a new auction site, but there's more than that, and although it's brand spanking new, there's already a bit of history behind it.
