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.

I would say on the economy line without sewing eye up to 1987. With sewing eye 1985-1987 until today. The economy line got variations. BR

Hi, good observation. The economy line does not follow the regular line. Some times it is close like the sewing eye can be 1985+ couple years on the economy.BR

For example, if a Spartan economy line has a punch without a sewing eye, is it still pre 85?

Hi Trond! A doubt. Are the tools dating rules on Vic's regular and economic lines the same?
