On The Road With Victorinox

While at SHOT this year we got to have a good look inside and around a Victorinox Edition Airstream and I have to say I was blown away.  As a child we used to go camping a lot, and while we may not have had piles of money laying around, we did have a small camping trailer- a Prowler, for those who are familiar with such things.  I remember just about everyone in the campground would stare wide eyed at and Airstreams that cruised by on their way to the "good" campsites, with the sewage and electrical hookups, while we were all left to run off our batteries or generators.

Wenger Booth- 2010 SHOT

Wenger's plan last year is continuing this year- some new stuff, but more about rounding out the foundation of the existing line than coming out with some earth shattering new products.  They had so many new models so fast that it's really good to see them putting some substance behind all the flash.

Wenger Locking Screwdrivers

One of the most recurring questions to come up on the forum is about how the Wenger screwdriver locks work. We are all so indoctrinated when it comes to locking mechanisms that when a completely seamless, automatic system like this comes out, no one knows it's there!
