Wenger Dynasty Series


The Wenger Dynasty Series feature black, mirror-polished, metal scales with the Swiss Cross surrounded by a heraldic crest. Each has a different tool set and is named after a fictional Middle Ages character, or story. They were originally packaged in luxury, lined boxes.
The Dynasty Series appears on the first two pages of the 1983 US catalog (Pg.2, Pg. 3). This catalog shows that they were initially introduced without names. Some of the models are included in the 1991 Wenger catalog.
