Corrosion

Corrosion resistance

Both Wenger and Victorinox got special purpose models for maritime environment. On the normal knives the salty air got no influence on a clean and oiled knife. It is important that a knife got oil on the friction parts not only for the friction and functionality but also for protection against corrosion. Oil in the friction parts will prevent corrosion from happening.

It is the same with Victorinox and Wenger knives. There will be no corrosion or rust at all with regular cleaning and oil. I have used a Wenger Ranger and different Victorinox knives in a kayak or at sea. The tools have been fully soaked with saltwater. When home I put the whole tool in fresh water for some time. Then I rinse well and wipe it clean. When it is dry I put some oil on the friction parts that is mentioned in the manuals.

 I can see no signs of corrosion caused by saltwater at all. Never leave any multi-tool or knife in wet condition for storage. Especially saltwater! This is the same with any brand.

Corrosion resistance update

Under normal wet conditions in rain or snow the SAKs got a very good resistance against rust and corrosion.

If you use the saw in wood it can be a good idea to wipe it clean when home because the resin or fluids in the wood may or can cause some very light surface spots of rust or discoloration. If you use the saw for dressing or cutting in animal bone then the tool need cleaning after use also because of the hygiene.

The corrosion resistance and the steel used on the Wenger knives are very good. Over the years I have never seen any problems with them. There is no need to question the abilities on the Delémont knives from Victorinox either. I have mentioned a few times that I believe the Delémont knives are some of the best SAKs on the market today, at the moment. Good stainless steel on versatile and multifunctional knives is a factor I consider very important. Today there are several steel types.

 

Swiza is also very good.

I have one with the capital V on Victorinox (1987), but the spring mentioned isn't there, and the date suggested is pre 1986.

Can I send some pictures to you?
