I didn't see anyplace that specifically sold Wenger, but there is a large duty free section that ought to have something that they can either ship for you or allow you to check through. I am pretty sure knives were for sale.
As far as quality, I'm certain you have your reasons, but Victorinox is making the current issue soldier knife.
If you're in town there's plenty of places to buy knives.
I think W vs V is more like A vs B (only W and V is one and the same company now), but I actually agree with you - I have also been always and I still am on the pro-Victorinox side (btw even fruit knives in my kitchen are mostly Victorinox-branded), but when I first saw a Wenger New Ranger series on their website I was amazed on how handsome a medium-sized pocket knife can be.

Quoting ariis (Thread starter): inside ZRH airport where they sell Wenger knives with decent selection of models? I am looking for Wenger, not Victorinox.
There is a Victorinox shop in the Airside Center inside the customs-area (duty-free), which of course also sells Wenger products, as Wenger in 2005 has been taken over by Victorinox. Wenger still is a different brand inside the Victorinox group.
Absolutely. But to the outside, two different brands are kept alive. There of course are US-American and Chinese (PRC) competitioners with quite nice products, and the Victorinox people of course know that !
