Seems a shame--I always preferred the Wenger scissors design over the Victorinox, because the Victorinox has a flimsy, easily breakable spring.

And nowadays, you have rivets instead of pivot screws, and etc, no grey holder for a magnifier, etc etc...when shopping nowadays, i either get something nearly identical as old, or find NOS stuff, which still is generally quite inexpensive, compared to most stuff.

I had pointed my insider friend to this thread, and they politely dressed me down for any critique of Victorinox taking over Wenger, and informed me of how the factory and jobs were saved, so I will bow out of this before I get another email!
