The Ranger 71 Gardener has three bladed tools on the front side and a corkscrew on the backspring. The (very large) modified liner locking main blade uses a push button on the handle scale to release the lock. The blade itself is a plain edge, with the Wenger name laser etched on one face. On the opposite outboard layer is an enormous wood saw blade.
A clever folding scissor occupies the center slot. First seen on the Ranger 14 introduced a year earlier, this scissors tool itself is three layers thick, consisting of a handle, a fixed blade, and a movable blade. Spring action for the scissors is provided by a clever linkage to the backspring.
A split key ring is firmly attached to a mounting hole in the frame.
The model 71 Gardener is equipped with nylon scales, contoured in the Evo style to fit the hand. Deep checkering is molded into the thumb area on both sides. It is only available in black. One side carries the Wenger cross logo, along with the Wenger name molded in. The cross logo icon itself is actually a push button, which when depressed releases the liner lock on the knife blade.
A RangerGrip model with yellow scales was also produced, 1.077.071.822.
Introduced in 2007; its special folding scissors tool was first seen on the Ranger 14. The 130mm Ranger series was introduced in 2007 as the New Ranger Series.
