Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp XAVT

The ultimate in Swiss Army Knives, the Victorinox Swiss Army SwissChamp XAVT is large and in charge with 80 essential functions packed into one tool. In addition to assorted knives, scissors, screwdrivers you expect from a Swiss Army knife, the SwissChamp XAVT also includes a digital clock, altimeter, barometer, and thermometer. It’s completed by a translucent red grip.  Read on for all of the items included in the SwissChamp XAVT after the break, too long to list here!

In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener’s mother, and “inox,” or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The forerunner of that name dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer’s and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor or versatility.
