Giant Knife!


If i should mention an extra historic SAK then it must be the Giant knife. It is in the Guinness book of records as the “most multifunctional penknife” The Swiss Army Giant knife 2007! On the picture is my 2009 model and it is a very special knife for me as a collector and enthusiast. For me this is the Ultimate Wenger Giant Knife. The functions in the company’s inventory at a special time are represented and I can very much understand that this knife is a record breaker because all the functions or implements are the same ones that you will find on all the different Wenger knives. There are some modifications done for the assembly.

Every Wenger function is developed to be used and they got individual evolution.  The functionality is of course not there on such a large SAK.

 It is easy to understand why it holds a title. The Giant knife is a big success and it`s been discussed and showed in different events and magazines. Today it is an icon and everyone recognizes it momentarily. Can you imagine how difficult it is to make something like this? Even for a super modern production in a factory it is almost not possible to do.

In the regular Wenger Swiss Army Knife evolution more functions was added. To make the SAK with the best functionality was not only done by Wenger. There is a limit to what is the maximum size to be able to fit in the hand properly and to be able to use the functions. I guess most would agree upon this. The Giant knife is special because it is far beyond this. Even so it is super fun and can be looked upon by any critical eye and somehow manage to spark interest one way or another. The Giant knife is different in the philosophy as you know. It is made to show most of the Wenger functions. I still Miss Wenger from time to time and therefore it gives much joy to have this.  Above the text today you can find some information about the record they made. To have full use with functionality out of your SAKs then most would stop at the thickness on the picture to the right. When you have been into SAKs for a very long time and learned about the evolution from the beginning until today. Then you realize it is justified in many ways.


 To me this Giant knife represents much more than just the basic information we learned about it. It is a functional art!

There are many sides or aspects with Swiss Army Knives. One of them is the ability to be used for much more than the name designation for the functions and model. Believe it or not the Giant knife captured this aspect too. The circle is complete!

Some models are in the borderline or past in size for the hand like the S54 which is a very nice knife. This is a Victorinox model. Victorinox must like the Wenger functions very well because they continued most of them.

On this picture you can see a thickness or size within the comfortable range.

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.
