Victorinox SwissChamp XXLT

The Victorinox SwissChamp XXLT is a very cool, ridiculously big Swiss Army Knife, primarily aimed at collectors. It is way too big for pocket carry. It’s also too big to be actually used. It has 72 functions, including the rather uncommon butane lighter. The only other two knives with that lighter are the SwissFlame and the CampFlame.

It’s also one of the few models that have the CyberTool bit driver. In fact, the SwissChamp XXLT has two of them, with eight different bits. It also has a number of uncommon tools for a 91mm model, like the in line reamer/awl from the 93mm line.

The SwissChamp XXLT was produced between 2002 and 2005 and is considered fairly rare. This one is a bit of an anachronism: it has the blade of the “100 years Swiss Army Knife” models (Spartan and SwissChamp) that were introduced in 1997. A weird combination. Does anyone have any information about this particular knife?

Victorinox CyberTool 34

The CyberTool 34 is the CyberTool 29‘s bigger brother, adding scissors, pliers and a multi purpose hook. This particular one has translucent onyx scales. I thought those scales would be translucent black, but they turned out to be more like reddish brown…

The CyberTool 34 is my favorite Swiss Army Knife; I’ve carried a ruby one as EDC for years now :)
