Today I have a large and special 130mm made for the sea and waters. I have had my eye on one of these for a good time now. The Victorinox Boatsman got some important factors involved that is educating.
It cost some good money but I do not regret it.
Most of you already know this 130mm to come from the former Wenger Company and Ranger construction. Here we have the Victorinox Delemont
model to check out. The first thing I would like to mention is the corrosion resistance because I do not have any 100% information at all on this besides the regular Victorinox information. Typically knives made to be used in saltwater environments got some
extra protection. I wish I had some extra information here for you but perhaps some will arrive from collectors, users and or maybe Company. Perhaps there is some information I missed. It looks like the dividers got a special tint to them and the bits are
blackened. I am very sure it a good stainless steel and very good components on this tool like they always have.
There is no need to go into too many details on the functions you find on the Boatsman because this is already easy to find some about on the web. Everything on this 130mm is very nicely done. It is almost impossible to compare this to a regular
MultiTool. I like to call these specialized for specific tasks. SAKs got the ability to fit many things around it at the same time too. You have functions that could be used for almost anything placed in this package. When it is about knives for sailors and
such then this is a very interesting one. This 130mm is going in my collection but for sure I would not hesitate to bring it along on a larger boat. I always find it extra educating to see the mind and philosophy involved in making such SAKs.
