EVO 18

Wenger Evolution 18 - Red The Wenger EVO 18 model is 85mm with four tool layers and ergonomic handles. The tools are the same as the older Wenger Handyman model. The relatively large tool selection in this medium sized knife has made this a popular model for urban and outdoor environments.

This model is also available with a locking main blade on the Evo/EvoGrip S18 model, and the special Scout S18.

A Junior Series version features the locking main-blade with a rounded tip.

Discontinued but still available as a Victorinox Delémont.
