(Image removed from quote.)The folding handle is a single sheet of stamped, heavy-gauge metal. It doesn't seem as strong as the solid cast plier handle on the SwissGrip, or the full channel of sheet metal on a Leatherman plier tool handle. However, my guess is that it doesn't need to be. Wenger looks to have intentionally made the plier jaws on the 75 a bit smaller than a normal multitool, thereby limiting somewhat the type of work that can be done with it.In other words, I think the folding plier handle will be adequately matched to the plier jaws.
I don't know if they are really concentrating on the bigger ones, or whether it just looks like it. Wait till you see the SOSAK Knife this year. If you haven't handled an Evolution series Wenger, or an EVO-Grip, you will be pleasantly surprised.Wenger is making some serious improvements all across the board, and it shows. The Nail Clipper model, which I assumed would be a joke, impressed the heck out of me, and it's about $20 and fits on a keychain.All in all, I am really excited about the new offerings from Wenger these days. I am just hoping they decide to start putting the EVOGrip inserts into the new Ranger series. While I have always been a huge SAK fan (in case you hadn't noticed!) I have always wondered how long it was going to be before the next new design change came around. The current flat scaled design has been updated some, but is virtually unchanged from the 60's. Why mess with perfection, I know, but then some might argue that evolution is perfection- the ability to change and adapt to new needs and challenges, and I for one applaud Wenger for taking the next step.Def
