- SwissChamp X series
I found first model from this list in mint condition, second one very hardly used..
In 2016 Victorinox company announced a new variation of popular SwissCard.
Instead of pen blade absolutely new tool (glass file) was added. Also, LED light was replaced with the short tweezers and tootpick was added to the place where tweezers were placed before.
SwissChamp is a very popular knife, it has a lot features (maximum from existing regular models) and sometimes used as EDC knife. Victorinox company produced a variety of different variations (I mean color and material of scales) of this knife.
Additionaly, Victorinox released few “tool sets”, which includes SwissChamp and some additional tools. One of them is a subject of current review:
Survival Kit 1.8812 contains from: regular SwissChamp, special dual pouch and a lot of “usefull” things, like flashlight, compass, ruler, etc. The weight of this set is around a 400g.
Few posts earlier I’ve mentioned that once (at least!) Victorinox company produced old models of knives with the names of existing, but different models.
The hero of current post – Passenger. Definetely rare knife, but now this knife becomes a Alpineer (by the way, original Alpineer is a 111-mm knife with another set of tools) and it makes it more rare than regular one.
N.B. In “Canada series” only this knife hasn’t tang “Economy” on the back side of main blade, two others – Scouter (Recruit) and Hiker (Spartan) – has this tang.
