What's with the Alinghi Strap Cutter
« on: May 13, 2016, 02:03:15 PM »
I saw this picture some time ago and was reminded of it with the recent discussions on rescue tools. There doesn't seem to be any info on it on the SAK-wiki and pictures seem scarce all over. Was this a tool that never made in to production or was it part of a very limited edition or what. It does seem like it could be a very useful tool for certain situations if it was done right.

I believe this was the knife the actual Alinghi crew carried. IIRC the cutter was a ceramic blade... and that is all the information I have, please consume with a grain of salt ;)

This looks like the perfect tool for cutting ropes and killing zombies.

Everybody is looking for one :D

Wonder for how much one of these would go on ebay? 1k*?

* Remember, it is more than just a knife, its also an ultimate Alinghi fan memorabilia, an item that has actually been aboard during the race...

I've just found this knife by luck!

It has the red transparent silicone on the cutter.

Is there anyone with more information? how many were made?

thanks!

Difficult to say. Around 500 at least.
It was not an official tool for the crew. Everybody could buy those knives at the alinghi events in the shops there.

This blade is probably made of copper :climber:

It appears it was given only to the crew members; it's blade is ss over carbon steel and a titanium coating.

I'm lost, is it a very rare knife (the red one) ? and the grey one is more common?

thanks

Juan el Boricua, many thanks for the information!  :hatsoff:

I will add the information in the SAKWiki, if you don't mind.

By the way, I suppose (from the link) the blade is made of stainless steel (high-carbon steel with the addition of chromium as an alloying element) with an additional titanium coating; not of multi-layer stainless steel and carbon steel package.

Just trying to help a bit but, we must thank Nick4 and the mods  at SAKWIKI, since that's from where I got hold of the info.!

I too read that this had only been produced for the Alinghi team. Given that the wenger 505 was available to buy yet only 400 were made makes me doubt the 500 figure quoted above.


I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

Wow! tosh, thank you so much for the great detailed photos of the rescue tool!  :like:  :tu:

I’ve uploaded the pics previously here on MT’o
I have 2 copies of the Wenger Rescue knife
The one shown above and another with the protection gel covering the strap cutter.

Both are stored (buried) in the loft with the rest of my SAK / MT collection.

We should definitely do that ...... Are we OK to use your pictures Sir Bismouth.

If so - Shall we credit 'bismouth from MT.o' as the author of the pics - Let us know if otherwise.

Thanks - I am happy to upload or you can Nick!
