A highly rare Swiss Army Knife (SAK) produced in the 1990s. This knife is intended for a collector with a display case.Ordinary users should turn back now. According to the SAK wiki. The XL model adds the Spatula, Electrician's blade, Small Pruner blade and the Divot tool to the already large tool selection of the SwissChamp. It was made in a very short time and limited numbers in the late 1990s. The challenge for the collector is not only to find the rare items, but to get them in good or better condition. This knife is from my personal collection. It is in pristine, highly collectable condition. The outer scales are unhandled and have their original luster.
The blades are unused and super-shiny. Like any Victorinox product, with a bright light and a magnifying glass, one can find micro-sized scratches on the handles and blades resulting from both the manufacturing process and long-term storage.
I have never owned a Victorinox product that was truly 10 out of 10. I have done my best to photograph the condition of the scales. There is some very minor scuffing that I can see, but my cameras eye cannot.
The first four pics are of the actual knife. The latter three are stock photos.As soon as you actually use it, it will lose about one third of its value. What this mean is that if you put the knife in your pocket or knife pouch, the handles will sufficiently scuff such that it will no longer be considered pristine.
Given the knifes age, I do not guarantee the viability of the pen. This is a standard, easily replaced part. See my other auctions for more rare Swiss Army knives that should never actually be used.
