Created specifically for the bitter extremes mountaineering can dish out, the titanium-handled Ueli Steck Special Edition Knife by Wenger was designed in collaboration with professional mountaineer Ueli Steck himself and Wenger. The company that brought you the iconic Swiss Army Knife. The Ueli Steck Knife not only looks completely awesome it also weighs in at a feathery 100g and features a partially serrated blade offering two cutting options. The wide blade design also integrates three hexagonal keys which are perfect for adjusting crampons. The functions this knife serves are ideal for climbing, but you don’t need to be a mountaineer to get good use out of it. It’s metal saw, screwdriver bits, and can opener are all welcome implements for any weekend adventurer on the trails, back country or otherwise.
This superb knife is suitable for a range of challenging outdoor activities. Each of these requires a different suite of tools so some of the knife’s tools, such as the screwdriver bits, can be removed or added depending on whether they’re needed or not. Whether I am climbing the North Face of the Matterhorn or backcountry skiing in Switzerland I have a different set of requirements so I wanted a knife which could adapt to different situations. -Ueli Steck
