Wenger Ranger 120mm broken scale
on: December 31, 2020, 02:23:50 PM
Hi,
I recently bought a Wenger Ranger knife (old 120 mm serie) for my collection. Unfortunately the knife
was badly damaged during shipping.  >:(  Both the seller and the shipping service decline all responsibility.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get to the scales of this series?
All info is welcome.
Thanks,
Peter

Wow, that's too bad. I hate the feelings an experience like this gurges up inside.
This life is merely a staging ground for eternity. Are you preparing for the rest of forever?

I would check ebay, and also consider writing Victorinox to see what they say.

I contacted Victorinox. The scales for old rangers are no longer available. They did offer me to exchange the Wenger Ranger knife for a similar Victorinox model. I am going to think about it...  ;)

I would keep the old Ranger.
Have a look at ebay, as I remember I saw few times these old Ranger scales for sales

Sure, on ebay: VINTAGE WENGER 120MM SCALES/HANDLES FOR RANGER POCKET KNIVES.
The price is terrible, BTW.  :facepalm:

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately these scales on ebay are for a single layer knife (no cutout for the corkscrew).
I also have doubts whether these are original? The wenger logo looks rather strange to me.

Seriously, write Vic an email, they have an outstanding customer service.

I once wrote them if they have any saw covers for their safari knifes in stock that I could buy.
Guess what happened? I received a letter from Ibach with 5 saw covers. For free.

Just ask them.

Yes, those are for Rangers without any back tools, but those are not necessarily single layer knives. I've never seen those scales with that type of logo. Usually the background is red (you knew that ;) ): https://sakwiki.com/tiki-index.php?page=Ranger+2+Layers

You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

Sorry, but they seem to have already been sold.

I have no doubts, at least for the Russian market.
You can see this variation of the scales, for example, here: (image onetwo, and three).

But maybe you can ask the seller?  :think:

I asked ... but no answer... :(

thanks anyway for the info...I never saw a wenger logo before with only a white cross!
