Swiss Army Knife packs a flash memory drive

Victorinox AG's Swiss Army Knives are famous for packing just about any tool imaginable -- including scissors, corkscrews and pens -- into a distinctive red pocket knife. Now you can add flash memory drive to the list.

Swissbit AG, of Bronschhofen, Switzerland, will introduce in May four versions of Victorinox's Swiss Army Knife: two with a 64M-byte flash drive and two with a 128M-byte flash drive, the company announced at the Cebit exhibition in Hanover, Germany.

The knives will be available in a travel-safe version that includes a red LED (light emitting diode) and a ballpoint pen, as well as an extended version that packs a red LED, ballpoint pen, a knife, a file with a screwdriver tip and a pair of scissors.

All four versions feature password protection to limit user access to the data stored on the flash memory drive.

The SwissMemory USB Swiss Army Knife will be available worldwide in April. The 64M-byte version starts at around US$73 and the 128M-byte version will be priced at around US$88, the company said.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
