Lousy pic, but at least I can confirm my membership (Image removed from quote.)
I love my two big beasts. I'd never carry them though. Personally, for me, they're collector items to be amazed by as a testament to what Victorinox can create.The XAVT & XXLT (Image removed from quote.)
This is the XXL I used to own. It's a weird one: it has the blade from the 1997 commemorative series SAKs (Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
Great thread, I hadn't seen this one Here's my XAVT which is a collector's for me and an exhibition item. Even though I manipulate it very often, still with the same eyes like a boy discovering a new toy he really was looking forward to. it's really one to have I think, and it shows what Vic can make and the prowess behind this. I have the XLT as well, I really like it too it's a beautiful one
I had a look at an XXL at my Vic agent a few weeks ago, and the housing was clear. (Just a look… )I suspect that being a little less popular than the mainstream 91’s, the LED versions tend to sit a little longer in stock. This may explain finding retail stock with grey housings?

Makes sense. But I wonder why your reply says XXT. Did I miss a memo about a new model?
You might be right. Still, I find it remarkable that even Amazon shipped me a grey housing Traveller Lite last year. Also, XAVTs on eBay seem rather seldom to come with clear housings. With such an amount of old stock still available, one wonders how much new (=clear housing) stock Vic actually produced before they decided to discontinue the AVTs altogether. Anyway, I have a feeling that our clear housing Wenger wrench XAVTs will be more sought after in the future than the pre-2017 models.
