- SwissChamp X series
I found first model from this list in mint condition, second one very hardly used..
First of all I have to say, that probably I was wrong and this knife is a another modification of Fischermesser. If you’ll compare images of actual knife with the pictures from Victorinox catalogs (see below), you will find several differences.
I summary – I don’t know what exactly this model is. I never saw it before and I couldn’t find any information about this knife yet.
So any your help (with identifying this knife) will be very appreciated!
P.S. Knife was repaired (replacing of both blades, new scales) by my friend Ivan.
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 before, I’ve described American Eagle knife, which was produced in 2009 for SMKW company as a special series – Wildlife. Today’s knife is an another knife from the same series – Bass Fishing.
It’s a 4-layers knife with an unusual toolset, and, as unique feature, like all knives in this series, it has a Fine Screwdriver on back side. Scales are made from transparent blue cellidor with printed photo of bass and white-letter printed knife’s name.
Prior to 1987, the Craftsman model, first introduced around 1973, had some important tool differences in addition to the standard evolutionary changes in the tools or common changes like the hook.
a. includes Fishscaler
b. no Pliers
c. no Chisel
