Stuff We Like: Wenger EvoWood

While there are so many cool knives on the market, I was really excited to come across this unique wooden-handled one. The Wenger EvoWood 10 ($40; has a nice sharp blade and a handful of handy tools you’d expect from a Swiss Army knife, but the handle is made entirely from solid Swiss walnut wood. Besides looking extremely cool, it feels nice in your hand, and it is eco-friendly as it’s made from leftover scraps of sustainably-grown wood. There are four EvoWood models available with the most well-equipped, the EvoWood S557 costing around $69.

    Forgot to add, I paid about $12 for my Opinel with shipping. AND they also make a WOSM version, but those are only in stainless steel, not carbon.

    I personally like the Opinel folding knives from France, They fold, have a twist locking mechanism, and come in both stainless steel, and my personal favorite, carbon steel.
