SAK Deconstructed: Wenger Nomad 85mm
« on: September 06, 2014, 08:29:41 AM »
Another installment of the SAK Deconstructed series.  This time, it's the 85mm Wenger Nomad.  You'll get to see the locking mechanism internals and how the Wenger scales are attached to the main body.

Any chance of actually posting everything here rather than just trying to lure us to your blog?  :pok: :pok:

Thanks  :)

How does the locking mechanism work?

Charles.

Take a look at the image titled "the locking mechanism".

The lock is on the right-side of the image. When it is not pressed, the locking "bar" (i.e. the horizontal piece of metal just above the cork screw) stays in its position, thereby blocking the opening/closing movement of the blade. The reason is that the blade wants to press the locking bar down during the opening/closing action but cannot do so as long as the bar is in place. BUT as long as you hold the lock pressed the locking bar is free to move down by the opening/closing action of the blade (which means it does not block the blade's movement as long as it is held pressed).

So, does the locking mechanism depend on a special blade, or a special backspring? If I have a regular locking blade and I want a serrated blade or a clip point blade, can I just swap the blade in? Or is it the blade special and matched to the lock?

There is definitely a special backspring for the locking mechanism. I can't tell from the pic above, but I suspect the blade has a special tang too.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!
