Scale Tools

This model is also supplied with a strong pouch which has slots for the bits.


The scales are manufactured from a new formula composite material, that is made from partially recycled wood fiber and other recycled materials. They were designed to be 100% recyclable and have a distinct colour and feel. The scales contain the blade lock release button (Wenger logo) and are imprinted with the Mike Horn Pangaea logo.

The scales also have a ¼" hex shaped hole near the tail end which is part of the hex bit-driver capability that is incorporated into the frame and scales of the knife.


This model was introduced in December 2009 as part of the Mike Horn Series.
According to Wenger, the publicly released model was version 1.2, with prototype versions being field tested by Mike Horn in person.

The circular reamer debuted on this model, and as a result is sometimes referred to as the Mike Horn Reamer (MHR).
The short stainless-steel cut metal file/saw, and the modified sheepsfoot style one-handed opening blade, were also introduced with this model.

This model was retired in 2013, as it was not one of the models converted to be a Victorinox Delémont.
