Victorinox Swiss Champ XAVT

Published By

Those who have perfected the configuration of their carry know the satisfaction that comes from pulling out exactly the right tool for exactly the right occasion — beer gets opened, screws get tightened, rope gets cut. So here’s for the guy who wants to say, “Yes.” when someone asks if there’s a hook disgorger in the house (that’s the notched end of the fish scaler [which is the saw-like blade with the numbers on it]).

With 82 different functions, the Champ XAVT is a beast of a collector’s item (the biggest Victorinox makes) and will never leave you wanting for a pharmaceutical spatula, an altimeter or a 2mm screwdriver. At a full 2.5 inches wide and around 12.4 ounces heavy, minimal carry this is not. But pull this out of your pocket and a conversation will absolutely begin. Unless you’re alone, in which case you can have a chat to commend yourself on your extreme level of preparedness. – Buy It
