AN 82-TOOL MONSTER: Victorinox Swiss Champ XAVT

It’s a freaking BEAST!

Victorinox Swiss Champ XAVT on

So which knife is it that we are talking about?

It is the Victorinox Swiss Army Swiss Champ XAVT

Honestly for many people out there, a Swiss Army knife is kind of like a Colt 1911, or a P51 Mustang, Guinness, a Harley, or a Ferrari: instantly recognizable, has a history, and works very well. There’s just something to be said about tradition.


Just look at that thing😲😲. It’s just chock full of tool-y goodness with all kinds of things that one could use at one point or another over the years.


It’s actually hard to call  Victorinox Swiss Champ XAVT a knife – it’s kind of a full-on compact system of survival and elf workshop tools, all in one (Yes!! We’re talking about housing 82 functions at a time)


Now I don’t know about that highfalutin digital stuff on the side of the knife, but I guess it’s ok. From what I’ve read, dropping it in water doesn’t hurt the electronics but I don’t know how long you could hold it under water. It should be good for surviving rainstorms or a wet t-shirt contest though so you’re good, and it’ll still cut just fine without it. It does NOT come with cupholders.


Also, don’t expect that you’ll be able to start a fire with a magnifying glass that will fit on a knife – you won’t. I’d suggest getting a cheap Fresnel lens that’s about the size and weight of a piece of paper to start a fire with the sun from something you can carry easily in a bug out bag.


The rest of this thing though is pretty damn awesome! It even has a freaking ball point pen in it.

It may be easier to see it in a video 👇


Whether you’re buying this as a special gift for yourself or a gift for a special someone who likes camping or just being prepared at all times, you can’t go wrong with this knife. It’s pretty awesome.


I think this knife will work just dandy.
