Lithos Series

Catalog page and actual knives from the Wenger luxury Lithos series.  These Knives have the main tools of the Esquire model, but feature 18K 10micron gold plated scales with highly polished stone inlays.  **Image by: vaswiss (SOSAK), image processing by ICFT. The Wenger Lithos Series are upmarket, luxury handled versions of the Esquire knife containing the same layer tools, but excluding the toothpick, tweezers and keyring.
They featured 18 karat gold (10 micron) plating and high quality, highly polished, inlaid stone scales. They also featured a unique true ceramic nail file, with the ceramic substrate bonded to the metal tool.
The packaging included a bright gold-foil outer slip cover that enclosed a wooden presentation box, and they were marketed under the 'Wenger Max' branding.
