In the history of SAKs you will discover the Wenger handle materials. There are collectors that know more about this than me. I have found a few things also here.
From 2004 and up this exploded and I am sure it is both the possibility of using new production methods and a new running change. It is not easy to find 100% information on
the handle materials on the Mike Horn knives. However Wenger released a few interesting details about them. The handle material is innovative. It is partially made of recycled wood fibers. I did discover early on talk from different places about the use of
plastic materials from the bottle industry as well. This I cannot confirm. The handle material is a composite.
The handle material used on these two knives is for
me mostly innovative because of the color and the environmental design. I do know that wood pulp has been used on Wenger knives a long time before in history. The Mike Horn knives and the handle material was made or designed to be recyclable. During the history
and especially with Victorinox and Wenger the use of a more environmental design and production has been done. I know Victorinox best but it is clear with Wenger as well the respect for the outdoors and the nature.
There is one more factor that is interesting and really worth calling innovative. A
comfortable handle is a safe handle. The different handle materials used on SAKs are important for knives in general but also especially for Rescue.
The texture on the Ranger especially is comfortable and safe. The feeling is special and nice. My favorite research and knowledge is the Wenger handle design. The texture and Evolution shape on the Mike Horn Ranger is one of the
most special I have had in my hand. Please take the time to look around my page and see the Rescue Blades page with under-pages. See Milestones
with under-pages on Evolution. There is much more information on Sakhome.com, take a tour!
