I am currently working on a possible purchase.  If it doesn't work out, and your friend still has it, I will post some photos of my Alox.  :cheers:

well, since we have a few people interested in this and one potential buyer, I asked for additional pics of the XL from my forum mate,
here they are for your delight   :climber:





I have not handled it yet but it sure looks like a monster SAK  :o

I am still seeking an XL, but it will have to wait as I bought an XXLT earlier today.

That's an awesome one Lisa  :o :like:

also, FULL DISCLOSURE:
 my mate went through all the implements in the Swisschamp XL and found out that the two specialty blades (straight blade and hawkbill/pruner blade) have weakened springs due to their years half-opened in the store's display,  :rant:

so they don't close with a snap and a little push is required to drive the blades fully into the tool  :ahhh
so he decided to reduce the asking price a bit. All other tools are perfectly fine  :tu:

I just wanted to make this public in case that it is finally sold to someone here  :salute:

AIUI, that's normal for the pruner/e-blade layer on these SAKs.  It's certainly the case on my XLT.

Something to do with them having 3mm pivot holes?  :think:
Or simply that the spring used is not optimally shaped for the tangs of those blades? :think:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!
