NEWS – I doubt that you’ll argue that Victorinox makes great pocket knives and multi-tools. And you probably won’t argue with me that their Swisschamp 1.6795.XAVT multi-tool is awesome with its 82 functions. How you would use this Swiss Army tool as part of your EDC due to its sheer size and bulk is beside the point because just look at it. How can you not want one as part of your EDC collection? It has everything including a built-in clock! If you’re tempted, the price is equally awesome at $399.99 on Amazon. Go check it out anyway, as there is no harm in just looking, right?

  2. i’ve only seen one of these in the wild and it was a user not a vault queen much to my surprise

    they are BIG

    “no harm in looking” ? YIKES!!!

    i have several hundred pounds of sharp things and “just looking” is how that happened

    you do know that SAKs are a gateway knife…don’t you? 🙂

      1. do now

        as far as the compass goes…you would have it next to a lot of metal

        my old silva rides around on a clip with a SAK and that does induce some error

  3. The Amazon reviews are hilarious. Here’s a couple.

    “Seems overly expensive at first glance. But given that we’ve saved buchu bucks on circumcisions, dental bills, and tree removal, it’s paid for itself in under a year.”

    “Left it in my pocket when i washed my pants. Came back and it disasembled the entire washing machine. Good buy.”

  4. While you can navigate a Northing just by knowing the correct time during daylight I think a compass would be far more useful than a clock.

  5. Every time one of these is sold, the Gnomes of Zurich laugh uproariously and have a shot of Schnapps. “Ya, Ya, Ya, those silly Americans…”
