Everything feels well made and stands up fine to light and medium use. If you know you will need to use any of the tools on it best to take a standalone, but as an EDC to just drop in your pocket it excels.It has a lifetime warranty.To maintain extend each of the tools and blades halfway and put a drop of oil on the base of each implement.
It is 31/2 inches long(91mm) and is extremely light. It weighs only about two-thirds as much as a role of pennies.
The ranger fits well in my hand for a knife designed like it is. I have a medium sized hand.The knife does take awhile to get used to finding the tool you want. But you can learn where all the basic tools are instantly. There is also never any tool clumping due to space between tools.
All the tools and blades are sandwhiched in between 2 red handles. The material has begun to get scratched. The handle contains the tweezers and toothpick.
It comes with 2 blades a short utility blade(4cm) and a longer utility blade(7cm) they are unfortunately stainless not carbon steel. They hold an edge relatively well for stainless and come with a good sharp edge straight from Victorinox. The only complaints i have about the blades are that they are stainless not carbon steel, they have no locking mechanism, and they are too thin for medium/heavy use, also although they are the easiest thing to get to on the knife they still take a little while to find.
Large blade,Small blade,Can opener with small screwdriver,Bottle opener with large screwdriver & wire stripper,Scissors,Wood Saw,Metal saw with metal file & nail file,Reamer with sewing eye,Corkscrew,Hook,Wood chisel,Fine screwdriver,Toothpick,Tweezers, and a Key ring.
Overall Its a good blade i reccomend everyone who is looking for a good EDC item to have one9or a similar model), but if you intend to do anything beyond light work with the knive buy a folder.
