Hello, I am new here :)

This is my most recent pickup, I have always been fascinated by the XAVT and I finally have one.

I notice there is something odd about the screen, holding the knife in some lights you can see a decolourisation to the left hand size of the screen, I have tried to capture this in a photo. Is this normal, if not what would have caused this?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

One more question if I can ask please, can any information be gained from the numbers on the back of the box? e.g. the product run, when the knife was made, if it is a first series or second series, for example if there is such a thing?

Thanks!

Thank you, with the discontinuation of the XAVT and its successor the XXL I figured it was now or never in picking one up at anything close to retail price. Otherwise it would be a case of overpaying on eBay for one.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you have BIG pockets  :)  Even with the carry case, you might lean to the side.   ;)  I'm a Tinker in pocket guy, seldom need anything else (probably wouldn' t know what to do with it anyway.) Enjoy your "SUPER DELUXE MAXI SAK"  :salute:

Welcome to the forum, XAVT. I own every AVT SAK and did notice the same phenomenon in some of their LCDs. It's not pretty, but they all just work fine and I wouldn't worry about it.

Cheers,

Simon

Welcome aboard, and congratulations on getting that big ol' SAK!
USN 2000-2006

One to four layers of SAK is (usually) best for me.

If you have absolutely nothing better to do, my YouTube channel is awlways an option:

Hi Simon, thank you so much for that, that puts my mind at ease, I've been worried and wondering if at some point my XAVT would have to go in for repairs.
The screen blemish reminds me of the old calculators when you pressed your finger against the screen. Thanks again for the info, good to know.

Has this deterioration got any more noticeable on your SAK's?

Hi XAVT,

welcome to the forum  :cheers:

Ahh, wood scales. Surely beautiful, from an aesthetic point of view  :tu: From a practical point of view, I'd rather prefer them with scale tools  :rant:

I know, you can't have everything  :dunno:

But that's a goal, not an obstacle  :rofl:
Best regards and stay safe,

Wolfgang

Not really, but sometimes I notice it more than at other times. Maybe there are factors which influence the phenomenon, such as battery level and humidity? Also the source and angle of light seems to make a difference, with sunlight coming from the side making the effect particularly noticeable.

Thank you Simon, you perfectly describe the screen on my XAVT, that sets my mind at ease now more. At least it is not just effecting mine.

Hello again, I am not sure what this model is called?

it is an 84mm, some websites refer to it as the Excelsior Single and others simply as the Excelsior.
I could not find a Excelsior Single on the wiki pages.

It only has one blade, no keyring, no other tools.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious
1.6795.XAVT is the regular Vic product code
76.........70 is the bar code number
35774 is the one that puzzles me - I searched it on the internet and it seems to be an alternate product code.
