The Latest Swiss Army Knife Is A Fully-Pocketable 73-Function Powerhouse

In 1886, Germany-based Swiss cutler Karl Elsener debuted a folding pocket knife containing tools for opening cans and servicing the Swiss Army’s Schmidt-Rubin Model 1889 rifle. This ultimately kicked off a more-than-century long tradition of Victorinox Swiss Army Knives, manufactured for both military and civilian applications. And though the Ibach outfit already boasts an enormous catalog of pocketable multi-tools, Victorinox has now unveiled one of its most functional and tool-laden models of all time with its Swiss Champ XXL.

Assembled entirely by hand in Switzerland, this utilitarian collector’s item (item #1.6795.XXL) packs a whopping 73 functions, including a toothpick, pressurized ballpoint pen, a myriad of screwdrivers, universal wrenches, and hex and Torx bits, a reamer, punch and sewing awl, can and bottle openers, magnifying glass, pliers, wire cutter, crimper, and stripper, fish scaler and hook disgorger, rulers, nail file, scissors, LED light, tweezers, corkscrew, multipurpose hook, and a plethora of different blades including a pruning blade, an electrician’s blade, a wood saw, and a large blade with a wavy edge. Despite its excessive functionality, the Swiss Champ XXL weighs in at just 12.5oz and retains the regular SAK length and height dimensions (of 3.6” and 2.5”, respectively). Sold in a special clamshell gift box, the Victorinox Swiss Champ XXL is available now, with pricing set at $316.

Purchase: $316
