Evolution 28

The Wenger evolution 28 is extra interesting because of the history. This tool configuration was introduced by Wenger from my information after 1976 as the Classic 28 for short. This model is from my information and research because of the introduction of the Universal wrench with opposite phillips. This 28 for short has seen the full evolution on the tools and there are several variations. Known as the Wenger Champ and General here this model was the one of the bigger with most selection of tools before the introduction of the plier. The Evolution 28 is therefore the full descendant of the Classic 28 and for introduced for the main market in 2009. Listed in the 2010 catalogue as “new”. I am pretty sure more early knives can be found.


The Evolution 28 is the model that one can expect to be one of the top 5 knives that represents the Swiss Army Knife tradition and the Wenger history the best.

In the history of the modern SAK we see very clear that the need for more functions to make the knives more versatile. In the history of the functions we see new inventions or additions and hence new exclusivities. For me as an enthusiast it is important to know this evolution.

There are variations in history and the Classic 28 number is 1 28 03 and the Evolution 28 full number is AF.

From 1977 the Classic 28 was in the Sportsmen presentation selection with the embossed Setter dog on the scale. At this time this model was one of the absolute bigger SAKs with the most functions on.



I have secured myself one more Wenger Evolution 28. It is a beautiful model for sure. This one is also labeled 04 2013 on the box. There is a difference between them that is a very important production variation and an evolution. On the right picture on top is the new one and it is easy to see the difference in the grind.

My latest :)



Yes i have bought one more Evolution 28 Wenger knife. This is something i do to learn more about production variations and evolution......

The Wenger Evolution 28 is an important model for knowledge.

Basically this model got most things and functions,it is a tool-chest that is very useful. No plier on it, the universal wrench does many tasks anyway.

The tang design and grind....the plastic film on the handles i leave be...



The Evolution 28 is Swiss Army Knife instrument because of the layers of functions.

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)
