Swisschamp XAVT/XXLT Owners Club
« on: March 27, 2017, 01:03:00 AM »
I don't think we have this club yet.
- Strange - As it is Victorinox's largest and most amazing SAK.

Recently I have found myself getting obsessed interested in the big, big SAKs
- I am afraid I cannot join the club myself - But would really, really like to hear from all you XAVT owners out there.
- Assuming you are happy to confess to owning one of these  ;)

Just wee things like:
- Is it on display or buried in a closet?
- Have your friends been amazed?
- Have you ever used it?
- How did you acquire it?
- Did you get a good deal? / Is it worth it? / Any buyers regrets?
- Isn't it a bit weird having two Cybertools? - Thoughts?
- What about all those amazing digital scale tools - How is the barometer?
- And, for that matter, the total incredible tool set !!
- And/or anything else you feel will interest your fellow Knights - Questions above not mandatory - Just some ideas!!

XXLT owners also feel free to pitch in - But I think not the XLT
We already have quite a lot on that tool - and I want to keep this thread for the biggest  :o  8)

Thanks all

- Amazing as it is Victorinox's largest and most amazing SAK.
Here's a photo I recently took of my XAVT next to the XLT, then SwissChamp, then Cybertool 34.


- Is it on display or buried in a closet? In a display cabinet, but I keep the lid closed to avoid dust and open it when folks come around.
- Have your friends been amazed? It has elevated my status in many circles.  :D
- Have you ever used it? I use it as a photography prop.
- How did you acquire it? I bid like a crazed fool for it about 3 years ago.
- Did you get a good deal? / Is it worth it? / Any buyers regrets?  I paid $285.  As far as worth goes, I believe it will hold its value, so yes, worth it.  I don't have regrets.
- Isn't it a bit weird having two Cybertools? - Thoughts?  It's a design element that the Libra in me finds equalizing.
- What about all those amazing digital scale tools - How is the barometer? I like the matte finish, I don't use the LCD part at all.

I'm definitely not going to be a part of the club anytime soon ether.  I would like to add in my thoughts on the digital tools after carrying a voyager for a while.  I really like the thought of having them on the knife scales but I always used my phone to check the time and weather so I went back to carrying a compact around.  I'd also like to add in an additional question for the XAVT group are you planning on getting a new one since they changed up the tools?

Another repost:

Swiss Champ, SC XL, SC XLT, SC XAVT

And larger than the others combined, a Giant.

I wonder why they put two cybertools on the XAVT and the XXLT :think:

Two sets mean bigger non-redundant bit kit

All I know is that I don't know anything - but I can't prove it!

Hey Guys

Thanks so much for joining the club and all the fantastic piccies.
It's really great to see the comparison shots with the other biggies.

I can never decide if the XAVT is amazing or ridiculous  ???
Still - I can't deny I'd love to have one  :D

FB - I'd say you got an vg. deal - I saw one on EvilBay for $1,200 recently - Now that is ridiculous! But they seem to be at least $400  :tu:
CS - Really good to see the XL - I'd say that one is pretty rare - eh? :salute: And of course a Giant  :ahhh
vucongkhoi - That pic looks like yours is a user - Wow - Congrats   8)

And LeaF you have excelled yourself
And I gotta guess .....  ;) ..... 
6L Champion w Phillips, 6LChampion w CS, 7L Champion (old MG), Champion Plus, SwissChamp, XLT, XXLT, XAVT  ??? 
The whole family - Wow

Suddenly my SwissChamp feels like a minimal carry. 
This is so true  :rofl: - And I used to think the SC was ridiculously big
PS. Note to self - Must work on my use of English - I used amazing (or derivative) four times in my first post  :twak:

I really have enjoyed this thread!  My youngest son is enamored with the XAVT, enough that I've looked into one but the cost had kept me from jumping on one.
