  1. The Mike Horn Souvenir Evolution 17 was introduced in 2011. It features butterscotch colored handles of a special composite material first introduced on the Mike Horn 130mm Ranger, the main blade is non-locking. This model is sold at a premium (even more than the locking version), with an initial North American 2011 List Price of $72.95 US (the list-price seems to have decreased a bit as of mid-2011). The higher price may be due to the special nature of the scales, but is likely more related to the royalty paid.
  2. EvoWood 17 non-locking blade, ergonomic Swiss Walnut scales.
  3. A Junior Blade version (rounded blade tip) was introduced in 2012 in connection with the movie "Dolphin Tale", which was released in Germany as "Mein Freund der Delfin" (My Friend the Dolphin). This model is also known as the Junior 03.
  4. The Soft-Touch or Tactile version features softer non-slip black scales, and the main blade is changed to a clip-point design.


Introduced in 2007.
