It's not a Wagner nor a Wegner. The company is called WENGER.
While they are my favorite SAK manufacturer, this one is terrible. Hope they make it with a normal style knife.
idk what to really think about it...
Interesting idea, but the blade looks horrible for slicing. The blade looks to uniformly thick. It's pretty expensive too...
its not for slicing its for cutting rope and the thickness is so it can turn bolts
I understand that it's thicker for more strength, but I would imagine that the edge has reduce cutting power due to the blade thickness. Obviously, climbers won't do much slicer, but thiner edge means more cutting power. Anyway, I think it's a nifty design, but not for me. I like laser edges. ;D
Wenger is my favorite too, I like their bold designs. Anyone else notice the screw on the blade?
Well if you consider what purpose it's made for, it's quite an awesome knife. Ueli Steck is mainly an alpine ice climber, so he has to tighten and sharpen his ice tools, maintain crampons, and efficiently trim pieces of rope, cordage or slings frozen solid. The ability to open canned food doesn't hurt either, and the bottle opener, oh well, what's a man without a bottle opener. Of course it should be super light but also tough. Wenger did a pretty good job here, only that it's clearly a specialty tool, or let's say EDC for only a few particular people in this world.
Not sold on the knife -- but I do like the sheath.
I would be more interested #1 if I wasn't too old and stiff to climb anymore and #2 if the main "blade" wasn't a blade - and the can opener was a short, partially serrated sheepsfoot or wharncliffe. ( I am also assuming that the main "blade" locks - so you can torque the nuts. If not, meh.)
Indeed, that's a good point. If it doesn't lock, goodbye fingers. Has anyone handled the knife yet?
The advertisement is very unclear in the knife line's various composites. I believe the blade and tools are stainless steel ... and the support frame is titanium.
Also, any savvy knife handler would look at that line of knives and the first thing they'd be looking for in the description is to see if the blade locks (as some of you have already noticed). The advertisement should mention the locking status because as it stands, this knife would be stupid as hell if it didn't.
It does lock via liner lock, you can either unlock it like a normal liner lock or push on the shield like the Rangers.
Would be a fan if the blade was standard. Fan of the bit driver. That's new for Wenger.
Wenger tends to be the more inovative of the two original swiss army knife manufacturers. That's why I like them so much. Their scissors, the locking blade, the locking screwdriver/bottle opener,... Always apealed to me more then victorinox knives. This bit slot would be a great addicion to the wenger standard issue.
