The modern scissors on Swiss Army Knives
This is one of the functions that
I use the most, on the picture you see Wenger and Victorinox scissors. 85mm and 91mm main line knives.
They are very different in shape and construction, the Victorinox evolution on this function
is well known. I will therefore talk some on the Delémont type. Wenger began in the early 70s to develop a new design. This design got developed further in the years after. We see a scissors in the late 70s that is a more known type. From the early
2000s we see a rivet more often on the assembly instead of a screw. There are also other differences in the design.
in the construction of the two brands: Wenger use a lever or what we call an integrated spring. It got micro serrations and it is self-sharpening.
The scissors from Victorinox is very good and it
is durable, a very nice type. The only negative is the separate spring. It may hook on to a fabric or other with the result of a bent spring, but they can be replaced easy. It will not cut multifilament easy. A serrated edge is needed for multifilament.
The Wenger type is also very good and durable. The lever design the factory in Delémont use is very good. Only negative is that cutting paper it will because of the serrations not get a super fine
Honestly today I just enjoy the two types and it would be sad if one is retired from the production.
