The Wenger evolution 28 is extra interesting because of the history. This tool configuration was introduced by Wenger from my information after 1976 as the Classic 28 for short. This
model is from my information and research because of the introduction of the Universal wrench with opposite phillips. This 28 for short has seen the full evolution on the tools and there are several variations. Known as the Wenger Champ and General here this
model was the one of the bigger with most selection of tools before the introduction of the plier. The Evolution 28 is therefore the full descendant of the Classic 28 and for introduced for the main market in 2009. Listed in the 2010 catalogue as “new”.
I am pretty sure more early knives can be found.
The Evolution 28 is the model that
one can expect to be one of the top 5 knives that represents the Swiss Army Knife tradition and the Wenger history the best.
In the history of the modern SAK we see very clear
that the need for more functions to make the knives more versatile. In the history of the functions we see new inventions or additions and hence new exclusivities. For me as an enthusiast it is important to know this evolution.
