Joshua over at BoyandGirlScouts.com nearly caused me to spit coffee all over my keyboard at work yesterday morning, when he posted about the Wenger® Giant Knife. And yes, that is its actual name.
Like him, I first thought it was a joke, or a clever PhotoShop manipulation. It’s real, though, and there is even a price on the product page of their website ($1,400 in case you were wondering). Since I’m left with no reason to doubt its authenticity, I wonder what the point was, of even making the Giant Knife? Publicity?
Publicity is nice, but someone should tell them that the market has moved on. Companies like Leatherman are the innovators now, with their plier-centric designs. Even Victorinox, the parent company of Wenger, is makeing a plier-centric line of multi-tools.
Does this knife have tin snips? For cutting off, ohh, say, rings for instance?
I can see where that might be a sensitive subject to you Mes, since unlike Jim kelly, the Snake actually owns a Super Bowl ring 🙂
The Snake is a Man’s Man and could do everything the knife could do plus throw touchdowns.
Ok, unless he’s carrying one of these knives, I don’t want to hear about some former Raider on an otherwise great blog!
it is good to know the Snake is able to get around.
🙂 I like the mustache comb, but it doesn’t have a cigar cutter like the Giant Knife 🙂
btw – I don’t want to rub it in, but I met Ken Stabler in Las Vegas this weekend, and he autographed a photo for my son. I’m not normally the autograph type, but hey, it was the Snake you know?
I forgot about MY multi purpose knife from metrolink
A comb, nail trimmers, flashlight, knife…

They definitely do – I’ve had a Commander in my tool box for years and it’s taken a lot of torque from the screwdriver, without any ill effects.
I actually like some of the knives that wenger makes, this one is just crazy but their ranger series is actually pretty good.
I do agree with you though on leatherman being the innovators now. There is nothing like a good leatherman multitool
Off Grid Survival’s last blog post..How to avoid a Mountain Lion Attack
you’d need another rucksack for the WD40 and duct tape
What a piece of crap. I don’t see any duct tape or wd-40. 🙂

That’s for those people living in the city thinking something like that would be so cool. LMAO. And to think, they actually PAID someone to come up with that!
One word…. WHY??????
Couldn’t all that metal have been used more constructively?
Wonder how many of these babies they sell? 🙂
Holy cow, does it come with milk?
I think it has a metal detector in it, opposite the nail clippers?
But will it pass through a metal detector at the airport??
What, it only comes in red?
Let’s see, where is that nail file again? 🙂
Is that a Giant knife in your pocket or are you just happy to see me.
