Ergonomics is a big interest and please take a look at my Ergonomics page + under-page. If you study the history of Swiss army Knives then you will discover that the red classic shape knives got its advantages and disadvantages all depending of your philosophy in knives. The Evolution of the functions and mechanisms on a SAK show changes and development in History. There is also much evolution with the use of Swiss Symbols on the handles. The use of different materials in the handle scale is also special from the beginning until today.


The Evolution introduction on the Wenger knives is maybe one of the really big changes on the handles on the knives. It does represent a big milestone. This sad it is important to see just how the evolution handles does perform and why it is made. Ergonomics is important!

Take a look around!


superb SAKs in every way

Wenger made a huge and lasting impression on me. We were lucky to be part of the developments from this Brand in history. Wenger could probably have made the 130mm evolution scales slimmer. On some of the models this handle is very comfortable but on some with many functions it could have been slimmer. Victorinox redesigned it and made the handle slimmer. Still on models with many functions it could be for some users too much. Ergonomics and comfort can in some situations suffer some.

Wenger 130mm Rangers and Victorinox 130mm Rangers with mid-number functions are both very comfortable knives. They are some of the best SAKs made. It started around 1990 with the 120mm Ranger knives from Wenger which developed into the New Ranger 130mm category that again developed with the evolution RangerGrip by Wenger.

On my page you can find some hopefully interesting information and research by me on ergonomics and such. On the picture to the right you can see the very nice Victorinox 130mm Delemont Boatsman. This knife is on the limit for a comfortable handle. It is acceptable because you have so many superb functions with the large size design implemented into this SAK package. But there are no more room for a wider knife.

The 130mm Wenger RangerGrip 78 and 79 are among the absolute best SAKs ever made!

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.
