If you haven't heard of Ueli, it's time to do your homework on the young legend. Ueli Steck is an amazing mountaineer who has set world record speed ascents of the most epic faces in the Alps including the North Face of the Eiger.
Wenger teamed up with Ueli to create a special edition knife line. Part of Wenger's new Titanium series, the Titanium 2 has everything needed to fix your gear whether you're on the first bolt or all the way up to the summit.
The Titanium 2 touts the same blade as Ueli's, 44% thicker than the typical pocket knife blade, and has Wenger's titanium handle.
This knife opens with a single hand and sports a safety lock for protection while stowed in your pack or pocket giving added peace of mind while you're reaching into the depths of your pack.
You would think it's a bulky knife with 11 different functions, but the Titanium 2 measures just three inches and weighs three ounces. Its light weight makes it an alternative for long trips into the backcountry for your ultralight kit where every ounce counts. It's compact size makes it ideal for ladies.
Wenger had the true adventurist in mind when designing the 11 different functions that are packed into this gem. Three hexagonal keys ranging in size from 7mm-13mm allows you to fix or tighten your ice axes or even ski bindings if in a pinch. The double cut saw is ideal for prepping kindling for the campfire.
The quarter-inch bit adapter handles any last minute tightening needs. I rate the pocket-sized pocket as the best feature on the Titanium 2 since it stows all the knife's features.
I tested the Wenger Titanium 2 in the Colorado foothills and packed through and used it in the Alaska backcountry. This gem cuts twigs, tightened bolts, fixed gear and even sharpened another knife with no problem. Plus, it even made me feel a bit like Ueli Steck. (MSRP $150)
