Victorinox SwissChamp XLT and XAVT - The Big ones!

The Victorinox SwissChamp XLT is a very large 11 layer Swiss Army Knife. It has 50 functions its 91mm length, but increasing in width. On the other hand the SwissChamp XAVT  is the largest Swiss Army Knife made by Victorinox. It offers 80 functions in a standard 91mm knife that is 64.6mm in width. The knife consists of 118 individual pieces and a skilled craftsman assembles each knife by hand.
You can see the difference in width compared to my regular SwissChamp who i have for EDC.

Victorinox Spartan Camouflage.

This is the model Spartan of Victorinox with camouflage scales. This model is a direct descendant of the historic Victorinox Officer's Knife. It has 12 tools and it is available in numerous colors.
The predecessor to the Spartan was the model Standard but with solid scales and it did not contain the Tweezers and Toothpick. Also it was without the keyring.

Timothy L. Meeker the best seller for SAK's !

This time i will not present some SAK of my collection, but i will do something much better.
I will write about  very good person who is using his (and our) love for Swiss Army Knives to help people saving the life of their animal.
Timothy Meeker is a kind of seller that you will never find elsewhere. He is always happy to help you buy a Swiss knife, with good prices whenever he can. And  if  for any reason you don't like the knife, he always accept returns.
But most important from all is that with every knife he sells, he is helping people who they can't send their very sick kittens to the veterinarian. Especially people with disabilities or seniors.
This post is for you Tim. Be well.

 (If you like to see Tim's shop just click to the last link in my Swiss Army Knives Websites list)

Victorinox Kasemesser Swiss Cheese Knife

This knife was introduced in 2010 by Switzerland Cheese Marketing AG. This model introduces a new tool to the Swiss Army Knife, the Cheese Blade. The knife is manufactured by Victorinox on their 111mm frame using their earlier slide-lock system for a locking regular main blade, which is partially serrated starting at the tip like the One Hand blades on the liner-lock series. The regular blade has etching on both sides, the reverse side as advertising"" and the obverse has the model name etched in 4 languages.The knife was delivered with some unique custom packaging that included a booklet on Swiss cheese.
