History

Excerpt from the Wenger.bg website (translated from bulgarian):

Second edition. The first version of the knife, developed in collaboration with the Mountain Rescue Service of the Republic of Bulgaria to meet the specific requirements for work in the mountains, comes with two different types of chisels - soft and hard materials.
This modified version will find all the advantages of the first model except the awl for soft materials. Now it is replaced with a corkscrew. Anyone who has tried to tighten icy shoelaces during winter walks knows how difficult it is. Using a corkscrew, tight icy walk becomes child's play.

Limited edition of 500 copies, sold only in Bulgaria and 2 more countries. The knife comes with a canvas bag with the ability to attach to a belt or backpack strap.
