The Ranger 172 - Gardener was a similar model exchanging the corkscrew for a Phillips and with a partially serrated blade.
Discontinued models, however the RangerGrip 71 is available as a Victorinox Delémont.
Main Layer Tools
- Large main blade - locking
- Plain edged - Model 71
- Partially serrated - Model 172
- Folding scissors / Small shears
- Large wood saw
The Wenger name is laser etched on one face of the blade.
A clever folding scissor tool occupies three spring layers in the centre slot. It consists of a handle, a fixed blade, and a movable blade. Spring action for the scissors is provided by a neat linkage to the backspring.
Back Layer Tools
The Gardeners are equipped with Evolution scales contoured to fit the hand, either in black Nylon with deep checkering moulded into the thumb area on both sides, or with the later EvoGrip scales. One side carries the Wenger cross logo, with WENGER moulded into the scales. The cross logo is a push button, which, when depressed, releases the liner-lock on the knife blade.
A RangerGrip model with yellow scales was also produced for the 71 Ranger.
These models were introduced in 2007 as part of the New Ranger Series.
The unique folding scissors tool was first seen on the Ranger 14, from the Wenger 120mm Series, which was introduced a year earlier.
