Angle on the functions


I have tested the 130mm Wenger Ranger knives with very good result.  I did mention in my “opening all functions page” about how important the riveting, spring pressure and all the other factors are for the functionality and safety.

I would recommend looking on the older rangers too because they are very good as well.

I did mention about the angle from the body of the knife and how the back of the blade relates to the spring.

The angle on the saw from the Ranger is easy to see on the picture and this actually help to cut faster with more comfort. When using the saw one apply pressure towards the material and then use the saw motion. When using the saw motion the angle one cut on the material with can be adjusted by the hand.

Maybe it is easy to jump to a conclusion about the angle on the saw from the body of the knife and say it could accidental close.

My impression from use is that it does not fold or behave strange and the angle is helpful to cut the material. If the tip should be used and this should hook then it can fold.

When finished cutting the material and you fold the saw into the body of the knife then you can feel a special resistance. The shape of the tang and area that the spring presses down on the tang is special. There is a special curve on the tang that in my mind interlinks with the spring design. This can be to compensate for the angle of the saw and to prevent accidental closing.

On the new Rangers this saw function with the size, design, spring and riveting is advanced technology with extreme precision.

Support update

I have talked some on the anatomy on the saw blade itself around and that this is made with the best design for cutting a material.

When you press the saw blade and teeth towards a material then there will be a force working from the back of the blade against the spring. This means that the spring is a support or stops the saw blade from turning in the wrong direction.

If you study the curve on the tang on the Rangers then you can see that the back of the saw blade goes past the spring and by this I mean that when using the saw this will support also.

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
