Guide unit

The guide unit on the SwissTool gives the possibility for a lanyard and the separate corkscrew.

From my information and research this guide unit for the pliers is responsible for the right distance between the handles and the necessary pressure onto the pliers.

On the picture the guide unit is easy to see and I really like the separate corkscrew possibility.I believe this part could fit other tools as well!. I would like a better place for a lanyard.

The next picture show the part on the “tang” if we can say so and the part where the metal plate for the locking mechanism sit. The SwissTool is an advanced multitool. The locking mechanism for these tools are durable.

The SwissTools are still MTs that continue to be a good choice. In my article above I mentioned the guide unit that is important for the functionality for the pliers. The pliers you find on the 130mm category are not as strong but it is a nice medium solution. What is extra ordinary is the engineering and the mechanical build. By using slip-joint springs you have the ability to function as a guide unit and holding it in position and a spring to assist the motion. This means it is spring loaded. This very interesting mechanism is used for the scissors too. Not just any scissors because these really are large and solid made. Some times when you look upon this category you can see some models for general use and some that is very dedicated for a specific task. Much like some of the philosophies you find on MTs. It would be very difficult for this large category to compete with the best over-all or general purpose MTs. What you get is some functions that can outperform in some areas because of the 130mm extra-large functions. On you can see the opening for large bits too. It is possible for them to compete to a degree but for sure MTs are hard to beat. They represent a choice and perhaps some do not need too many functions and it is there these fit the best. You get a long way with a long blade, large wood saw, large bits and perhaps the medium pliers. There is an extra spring for the plier’s mechanism.

The spring tension is stronger on the pliers. This is obvious and you will also see some other small differences with the handle for the scissors and pliers motion. The Victorinox Delémont models are some of the absolute best SAKs at the moment. I mentioned on Sakhome how perhaps the 111mm liner lock category is a bit stronger in general. On models like the two here it is obvious that it would be difficult for the 111mm to be better. Such large functions like these are tough to beat. The SwissTools designation is for MTs but other categories got similarities to such with the models that contain the medium pliers for example. It is also clear to see how MTs can simplify the construction and make it stronger at the same time. The SwissTools are very good tools that are hard to beat. It is very nice to see the 130mm alternative as well. It makes the world a little bit bigger.

Wenger and Victorinox 130mm categories. Wenger started this 130mm alternative with the New Rangers. I am glad it continues with Victorinox.

The Victorinox Gardener heavy duty scissors next to the pliers.......Wenger also started this a good time ago.

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! :)

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
