Wenger did not try to hide the clip on the Ranger knives. The clip itself is a part of the ergonomics on the handle but different than usual. This clip on the Ranger knives is more a part of the ergonomics
and grip than on other knives. I will show what I mean with pictures. The shape of the clip is designed to be ergonomic in the different grips one would need for use.
The clip is designed with the curve and shape for the hand. On the next picture also the use of the thumb and clip for ergonomics.
The clip is designed for the different grips when using the big flat screwdriver as well.
The clip is designed for the grip used for the can opener!
Please take a look at the RangerClip 61 underpage on the New Rangers
pages as well.
PS all the information are from my impressions and can not be found elsewhere.
The Clip on the Ranger can be used in reverse grip for the thumb and finger for controle. It is typical on a SAK that everything got versatile
use with or without intent in this case. It is also possible to use the thumb over the liner lock for controled reverse grip.
Yes for sure the lever spring scissors started without serrations. These you find 1973-1977. Thank you very much. BR
The super scissors 1977 got the lever system, got serrations and is self sharpening. The period 1971-77 May contain variations. Wenger started the future. BR
So the scissors with lever system were once had plain edges? Wow, I would never have imagined it! You have the best information about SAKs in the entire Web. Thank you very much, regards!
It is the same lever system from the early 70s, Wenger designed this because it is a safer and more durable. In the late 70s it got serrations.
