Victorinox Swisstool Spirit XBS and BS!
« on: November 29, 2016, 05:40:19 PM »
It looks like victorinox has a "burnished steel" version of the Victorinox Swisstool spirit X! Did anyone purchase one of these? I wonder if its the same as the black oxide version they had before, it's a bit hard to tell what color it actually is from the pictures and description  :multi: :multi: :multi:

Doesn't look like black oxide (which I'm not so keen on), and looks very nice! Also the description says "this incarnation of a multi-tool features burnished steel for more than just an elegant blackened finish, as it provides for better protection against corrosion".

One of its superpowers is the ability to empty your wallet twice as quickly as a regular Swisstool!

Looks as they used the same burnishing process as before though.

Cheers guys.
I actually bought it is a "Spirit black" over here:
http://www.cuchilleriagomez.com/cuchilleriagomez/5324236/victorinox-swisstool-spirit-black.html
On the box, it also states, Spirit Black. It does not say XBS. Even if it has the exact same tool configurations.as the XBS?
I compared it to some XBS pics, and it matches exactly. Also the plier head on the image used on the site above has the stamped logo on the head, while my delivered tool does not? Considering that in some Spanish webshops it is marked at 180 Euro, I consider 135 Euro a good deal.
Even when it is a Spirit black.

At that price I can get a regular Spirit here...

BS? Really?  :rofl:
Cool look  :like: :like:, but when was the last time anyone saw a rusty regular spirit?  :whistle:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Soooooo, is the XBS finish the same as the standard black finish that you get on the Dutch and Swiss army spirit's or is it new and better?  :think:

The item number for the Spirit XBS is 3.0224.3CN
https://www.amazon.de/Victorinox-Swisstool-Spirit-Nylon-3-0224-3CN/dp/B01MTIR2VG/ref=sr_1_1?s=diy&ie=UTF8&qid=1494013879&sr=1-1&keywords=3.0224.3CN
Date first available at Amazon.de: 22 Nov 2016

The item number on my "Spirit Black" is 3.0224.3CCH
https://www.amazon.de/Victorinox-SwissTool-br%C3%BCniert-CapCrimper-3-0224-3CCH/dp/B001U57I5O
Date first available at Amazon.de: 26 Feb 2009

It looks like images used, and the tool configurations from both are identical .
The XBS appears to be a re-branded and re-released Spirit Black.

On the Official site: https://www.victorinox.com/ch/en/Products/Swiss-Army-Knives/SwissTools/SwissTool-Spirit-XBS/p/3.0224.3CN
The pouch shown is different then my green nylon pouch.

On this Youtube video, the XBS is showing with the pouch that came with my Black version


After watching the video, I did spotted the XBS pliers head has the Vic Logo stamped, my black version does not have that stamp.

Does anyone own both the new black and stainless steel version spirit? I got a new black spirit x but the rivets seem to be a bit loose compared to the stainless steel and previous spirit x models I've handled. Do I just have a defective one?

I have a Dutch Army spirit and it's as tight as my s/s versions....

The new Spirit Black one is tighter then my Spirit Road Tour, But that is due to wear an tear of my RT. I suppose the black one will loosen up over time aswel.

Maybe the XBS has the same type of finish as the handles on the RT. That way it would be new :think:
