1.25.13

Wenger Evolution

 

On the picture you can see two 1.25.13 knives that are from different time periods.

The one on the top is from around 1980 and the other I will talk about today because it is a very interesting knife with some variations that would fit well with the Wenger evolution page.

The one on the bottom is or can be from the mid-1990s and it shows again how the Wenger knives changes in history. It got the long can opener with the older type spring and it got the line guide in the fish scraper and hook disgorger tool.

What is extra interesting is on the next picture that shows the backside of the knives. It got the new spring mechanism for the main blade and small blade. So again we have a knife that tells a story!

It was not so that Wenger changed both sides at the same time. I have looked over all my knowledge to tried and date this knife. I sad mid-1990s and it could be early-mid-1990s. It is not unique that this is so on this knife because it is just a variation or interim detail. It is typical Wenger and nice.

I can conclude that from before I have mentioned that you can find the long new can opener with the older type spring. The spring was not necessarily changed for the new long can opener. I can also conclude with the observation on the spring for the main blade shown today that it can be found on this side and not necessarily on both.

On the two knives on the pictures there are many other differences in the construction. The 1.25.13 is a larger type Wenger knife and one time it was among the bigger SAKs from Wenger. It got an interesting selection of tools. It is a quality made SAK.

Update

On this picture you can see a knife with both side layers that got the new spring mechanism design.

Here you see it with some other Wenger SAKs. It is not magnetic while some of the others on the picture got a magnetic tip on the precision flat screwdriver  with magnifier glass. There are several Wenger SAKs with magnetic tip. They are all high quality.

Beautiful functionality

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.
