One cannot measure Wenger in any form with the philosophy. It is a Company that did the impossible. No one did expect that the products developed from 2004 and up would set a new milestone with products. Many expected the SAK to be fully developed and impossible to make new editions that would hit the market with a boom again. Wenger did this at several occasions in history.

It hit the market after 2004 and up with a bigger impact than ever. Show me another Brand in the World with such an innovative development on knives. What Wenger did was a milestone and something extra. It was made whole new lines of knives and editions. It was developed on the old and new. It is a mix of everything from 1893 until 2013.

The man and the knife


Can you live without water? Can you live without knives? In my opinion equal important questions.

It is a wonderful experience and journey to see the developments and innovations not only by the Swiss but also the native Helle Company which I hold dear. This update article will be about Swiss knives and the nice aspects of them. Not a heavy text but rather an easy flowing one.

In my country we have different traditional knives and a few historic quotes about the idea of being without knives. Not good reading for the haters. Basically it is no living without them. The journey about Swiss knives turned out to be educational and giving.

I will start with the Soldier knife 2008 type which is an inspiring design, developed with perfection. The type of knife that can be used everywhere.  In the history of knives you have many blade designs and edges. This is inspiring because they serve a variety of tasks. I like to link the idea of blade designs all the way back to the Iron Age. It is giving to learn and to research why the particular blade had such a design. 

Wenger was the versatile card with innovations that had the daring dress. This was a Swiss Company which sometimes did strange designs and more than once hit the center of the target perfect.

Swiza is the new versatile card with the ability to surprise. This is a Swiss product that made a design almost perfect from the beginning. They only did a few adjustments and here they are with a wide product range.

In the dark it can be difficult to see without a light. Knives and LEDs go hand in hand and fulfill it. The wavy edge, is it a lonesome wanderer? Is it the blade that never is used or is it versatile? Well it is very much so I would say. Versatile that is and the wavy edge can in some eyes still be difficult and a design that complicates things. When you have studied the abilities and purpose of it you realize how valuable it is. With some practice it is very easy to maintain, sharpen and use correctly. I am super glad we have a widespread of blades, edges, designs and additional functions for the models. It is today an ever going development. Something interesting for anyone I believe.

There are many categories with Swiss knives. In the history you will find many scale materials and models with professional or regular philosophies. For example the plier!

28.06.2022 RangerGrip 179

This is my latest 130mm Delemont SAK for my collection and this is the RangerGrip 179 in green and black. The green color got a nice shade to it. The blade centering could be just a bit better for the main blade but not a problem. The locking mechanism is 100% on this. This is a beautiful large Swiss Army Knife in deed. 

15:30 About the centering it is no problem because there is no contact. These are superb SAKs.
