WENGER GENUINE SWISS ARMY KNIVES:



ERGONOMIC AND TRAVEL FRIENDLY MODELS LAUNCH SPRING 2009

We are already busting out the camping equipment as the snow melts, the temps rise and the birdies are all a twittering!

Needless to say, we are always looking to lighten the load and were jazzed to see that Wenger, maker of GENUINE Swiss Army Knifes (and some of the best kickers we’ve ever seen—for guys and gals) has incorporated its popular EvoGrip and Soft Touch styles into handy and travel friendly Swiss Army Knife Clipper Tools.

Boasting the same must have tools as the original Clipper---the Soft Touch version ($38.95) has a comfy neoprene coating, and “seven implements for eight functions”---like a stainless steel nail clipper, equipped with a tool deployment mechanism for easy, safe opening, a 1.8” springless scissor with serrated, self-sharpening design, nail file and nail cleaner, toothpick, tweezers, a key ring and a 1.75” pen blade. And even though- when we got ours-we were thinking our hands have to be Munchkins size…we were able to easily open all the instruments.



The EvoGrip Clipper model ($35.95), differs because of its texturized black rubber inlay at the four contact points for enhanced feel and control. The bells and whistles are up to Wenger standards though. “Our goal was to add a new dimension of dexterity to a tool that’s more than just your typical Swiss Army Knife,” said Dennis Piretra, Vice President of Marketing, Wenger NA. “Now the ultimate manicure tool provides three great options in handles while still offering the most popular functions for a variety of personal needs.”

ADDED PLUS: Each Swiss Army Knife Clipper Tool is manufactured in Switzerland and feature lifetime warranties as proof of Wenger’s dedication to quality.
