More EvoWood

I had to get one more of the EvoWood S557 knives because I found one with an incredible nice look on the wood. See the pictures above and below. I have never found any EvoWood knife that is not nice, that said. There are many natural and product variations by the Brand. This is on purpose. This knife is marked 09 2012. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.



I have secured myself another Wenger EvoWood S557. The handle scales made of Walnut wood got variations in texture and shades. You can find dark to light stain in them and this one got an interesting striped backside scale. The main side with the emblem and logo got a combination texture and stained wood.  These knives are made with superior manufacturing and are one of the absolute Wenger products that will go into history with excellence. The S557 in itself is Wenger and the Wood material combined makes this the absolute best 85mm in my opinion. I have secured myself some models with this configuration and I a very grateful in deed.

Thank you Wenger for the incredible history!

S557s, 14 and 10s

On the picture today you can see some really cool Wenger SAKs with wood handles. I must admit I have several more. I have mentioned this many times before how Wenger did the incredible introduction with the EvoWood SAKs. I know there are many that agree with me about the quality and design on these. They are really nice SAKs.


Wood is a warm and cosy material, not so easy to capture on a picture but perhaps this is a bit cosy still. The EwoWoods got Walnut that is stained and protected. 

S557s, 17,14 and 10s. I got some more by Wenger.


I used an EvoWood model for several years and they are high quality made. Some of them are a bit darker in reality compared to the pictures. Many got natural wood play and texture and some are stained by Wenger more than others. This was done to bring out the wood. They are treated with oil that is very good for protection. On the right row, number two from the bottom you can see a 17 model that is lighter. I can also see that the laser engraver had trouble with this wood. The engraved Emblem and Wenger both show signs of this. I can also see that the Polishing and shaping on the wood is not so perfect in the lines. I was told that the EvoWood scales were made in Italy. I do believe it is walnut too but I also believe it must be a very hard part of the wood. The S557 is one of my absolute favorite Wenger SAKs. It got rather heavy functionality too.

I know some are probably interested in learning some special info. Wood is a living material and with the proper factory treatment it can last a very long time. I cannot see any differences, cracks or shrinking at all. They are as when I got them.

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)
