Welcome to
Hi! I am Trond Ole and i am a collector, researcher and enthusiast about Swiss Army Knives and other Swiss knives. I have had for about 6 years now. I am independent, free and do not represent or work for any Company. Best Regards
19.06.22 Lite:)
Helle Raud and Nipa, lockback folding knives with pocket clip:) 19.06.22 The Raud M got a perfekt blade centering. The Nipa is towards the left almost touching. This could perhaps be adjusted but I am happy with it. Both got a really tight and nice mechanism. The Nipa got a handle design which is something extra. Both blades are crazy sharp. I am impressed with the lockback mechanism, you can feel the precision.
07.11.2021 I had a nice time on the water today. I am surprised to see the beaver towards the saltwater. The birds are changing color for the winter. Becomes white. Not much current in the river today:) Some wind and current outside instead.
04.11.2021 I had a lovely time on the water yesterday. On this picture you see some more about the nature we got here with another part of the moraine. There are several seals here and one large one that is difficult to get close enough for a good picture. It is fun anyway and it is curious on the kayak. It goes under and appears behind or in a completely different position. The river outlets got some more current and speed now. It varies depending on rain and other factors. This island is called Ærøya and it got history because they planted alot of trees on it because of a shipwreck. They did this so survivors could seek shelter there if anything happened. This small forest is still there further up to the left.
here you see the trees and for sure this could save lives. This is in the South of Norway but for sure the weather can get insane here too.
30.10.2021 Today I got a wonderful experience with an eagle. It sat on a small rock while I came closer and closer to it. In a kayak you move almost completely silent and when it lifted off I took this picture. I have seen a lot of animals lately like seal, eagle, deer, beaver and many different birds. The eagle today can be Havørn Haliaeetus albicilla but I am not 100% sure. In a kayak you can see shoals of fish and other fish moving. Just a mobile picture.
11.08.2021 used my kayak out here today. Rather much wind today but very lovely still. This picture I took some days ago from the same island. The Vikings used to live around these waters, the Island I live on called Hisøy got several places which they lived. Some powerful energy out here. I live around a national park called Raet. The islands and nature here is a bit special because it is what they call a geological phenomenon. It is a moraine! From 11-12000 years ago.
17.07.2021 I have used my kayak rather much this summer just for the joy. This is a picture from today. The water temperature is very nice now with some over 20 degrees celsius. There is some wind. The air temperature is very high. This is a wonderful summer.
23.06.2021 I got this beautiful 85mm Wenger SAK in the mail today. This model is the number 512. It is probably a 1965-1972 type construction. It looks like late 1960s to me. Older corkscrew with decoration groove, old nail file cleaner, old scissors. Wenger had many hand operations back then. The condition is super nice with strong springs and precision. Wenger used a different method for attaching the scales at this time with only one visible area(inside). This model is interesting because there is no awl on it. There are design features on the springs and assembly that can be extra interesting. The date is only for now. BR 13:02 I can also mention a thicker blade on this from the tang towards the tip. Wenger used a few different types depending on models. On some SAKs the blade could be thinner to fit other functions for example. This 512 blade is probably from the older production.

Greetings from Hungary! Did you know that the head curve "inspired" the Spyderco Hungarian folder?
Exactly by a Hungarian designer who works for Spyderco (I can't remember his name)

The 120mm continued after the New Ranger. They had Patent and not pat pend. I say pat pend first then patent next. But! Wenger did many variations! :)

03.01 | 15:08

The old Ranger 120mm is from 1991, on my 1993 it is pat pend I have seen it on 1991 too and Swissbuck as well! Wenger can be a minefield because of variations

It is a superb question. Wenger used different stamps, some because of european laws. Usually the quality and steel is the same. Which is first? Not sure.

Hi! Sorry for late answer. I have seen many variations with Wenger, please send pic to
