Garden knives

I have found some interesting information on the internet that the 100mm Garden knives with this blade shape is used for work on fishing nets. "vodbinder knife" is work on nets or fishing devices or a person doing such work.




Found some more interesting information that the name "bøtekniv" here in Norway. Same knife as above in red or black is used for work on fishing nets.

Really high polish on the functions.....

14.12.2020 Gardener 130mm

This is my latest 130mm Delémont Victorinox SAK and this is the RangerGrip 71 Gardener. It got the designation 0.9713.C

The traditional 100mm Gardener in black above is a very different category in size and configuration. The traditional one most normal to find in red is a very versatile blade that’s been used for a huge amount of tasks across the world. Including work in the Garden or on fishing-nets as mentioned. You can also see a red economy 100mm Gardener next to the 130mm one on the picture. To say that this 130mm is just bigger and more versatile is an understatement. This is a true titan of a SAK! It is based on the Wenger model and Victorinox continued this with their changes. You know how the story goes so I do not have to talk about how it came to be again. This is a full package for use in the Garden but for sure not limited by this. I would expect this to find use outside that space. While the 100mm category is used by professionals with its different blade designs the 130mm tool here is more a heavy duty design.

Looking over the assembly, functions and quality it is striking how well it’s been made. This knife is a bit on the expensive side but worth every amount of it. I would actually say that the precision and workmanship on the Delémont knives is something that people should look out for a bit. The blade centering is 100% and the improved sturdy locking mechanism is so tight that it is perfect. The precision on everything is top notch. The main reason for why I got this was to check out the foldable large scissors. I have only seen these in the past but never had the chance to look over it with a magnification. This is truly a very nice quality and I find it fascinating to see the engineering and mechanism on it. The edge is plain edge without serrations or waves. It got a sturdy construction and very sharp.  The 130mm Gardener also got the large wood saw and long plain edge blade. The corkscrew would probably find its way for use by some too. You also got the toothpick and tweezers in one scale. The best and most comfortable way to use the scissors is having the top side up, and having the arm/lever under and use the fingers to move this lever up and down. It is spring loaded...

218 grams is not lightweight but i believe it is important with the weight and construction for the quality. The 130mm size is justified and something I have talked much about on Professional tools are many times larger and stronger made.


Swiza also got knives for the garden and things around it. Swiza made them for Felco with a rather heavy duty design and smaller package. Swiss products and knives are really good for such.  The 130mm Gardener instrument is most likely the most complete I have seen so far of all.


The large heavy duty scissors on the 130mm got a plain edge on each blade. The sharpness is very high.





By using the fingers to move the arm/lever you can twist the grip and direction horizontal or vertical depending on what use.

Greetings from Hungary! Did you know that the head curve "inspired" the Spyderco Hungarian folder?
Exactly by a Hungarian designer who works for Spyderco (I can't remember his name)
