Rangers

 

From 2007 Wenger did release New Rangers to the marked, made new from a to z.  From that date mentioned and until today many new knives got made.

These knives are made for the more heavy use in the outdoors, in this case size does matter. What is interesting is how well these knives are tested around the world, and high scores as a result.

I found it very interesting to study them, let me give my impressions:

A very good looking knife and good feel in the hand, i am sure these knives must be one of the best engineered category knife i have seen. Every detail and function well made. One of my special interests and study is the locking mechanisms. Not only fun to use but also safe, the modified liner prevents accidental closing. This is why the lock was made! Comfort and safety goes hand in hand.

The large functions in the Rangers gives a much faster and more comfortable work. I agree with the philosophy that a Swiss Army Knife performs, this is why it was made.

 The 130mm is the size category the New Rangers have. This is a large platform and the wood saw follow the old Ranger style but more developed usually. Then we get a large locking blade that also can have a combination edge. A safety knife should always have a one hand opening blade. No problem, it was made!

Today this category got knives for the outdoors and also special purpose tools made for hunters. The knives also got potential, this was shown with many special scale camo types. And not to forget the grip(RangerGrip) The Hex opening got much potential since one can custom make a pack for any use.

I took a look on the rivits, assembly, functions, scales and how it was engineered. It is for me the most interesting new knives made. So much put into them, much new.

 

A safety knife got a one hand opening blade with locking. The scales must be slip resistant and one need a ring for lanyards. Possible to carry in a sheath and scale color easy to see.

 

It is no surprise that the New Rangers have knives made for survival and organisations that require a knife for more extreme use.

Here is an example on how a easy to see handle got made, orange camo or AP Blaze. This was made for hunters.

RangerGrip 90 with hex opening

Here is the Ranger 55 with black scales. These are basically the first scales made on the New rangers in 2007.

From 2009 the RangerGrip with rubber inlay.

Good bite in the edge and steel used. The edge works well on pine and spruce, even harder woods.

2004-2013 Wenger startet med evolution skjefteplater, viderutviklet dem og skapte også nye Rangere. I et knivmarked klarte Wenger det nesten umulige med å lage nye design og produkter. Ikke bare klarte de den enda større satsing på utendørs liv men de gjorde så og si alle de nye produktene til suksess. Idag ser man evolution, evolutionGrip og Rangere mange steder. De er nevnt til å være mest innovativ med kniver. Man skulle tro at kvaliteten gikk ned med de nye produktene men faktisk var det også en økning i kvaliteten. Bedre materialer og bedre emblem. Også må det nevnes at evolution var tenkt på tidligere men produksjonen og metodene var ikke der enda. Man må også nevne EvoWood og RangerWood som er en av de mest interessante for mange. Nå kan man ved hjelp av lasergrvering skape produkter med utrolige fine motiver. Wenger nevnte først når EvoWood kom ut at de så på dette som novelties men som er topp for gravering og også bruk. EvoWoods er en inner tier for meg. Som Kon-Tiki kniven og den lasergraverte speiderkniven i Norge.

Eksempler på hva hex åpning for bits har.

 

Some examples on what the hex opening can be used for, there is a limit ofcourse.

And more

Wenger sheath

This feature or opening is not just smart, it is brilliant.

 

The Wenger sheath is well made, one can have two or more bits in it also.

Wenger AP Snow 50, synes det er noe magisk med de skjeftene. Utvalget av funksjoner er laget for jegere.

Her ser du funksjonene på AP Snow 50

Ranger 55

I milestones så kan du lese litt om introduksjonen av nye Rangere. Alle funksjoner og design passer veldig godt sammen. Det er brukt meget høy presisjon.

Baksiden

RangerGrip 90 again. Candy!

When Wenger intoduced the New Rangers we see the emblem push button release, it is safer to Close the blade without using the finger to slide the liner to close. I call the locking mechanism itself as a modified liner Lock. I will show what i mean.
It is not a normal liner Lock, we see this on the old Rangers as well. In norwegian i call it a "bjelkelås". It is a sturdy lock and interesting that the emblem push button release slide the liner.

Hi again, thanks for the email. Yes you can use the Dual sharpener ceramic opening for sharpening the Ranger blade. Remember to use medium pressure and pull. BR
