The unique feature of the Cybertool is the Bit Driver with replaceable bits. Many of the bits are designed for screw types and sizes commonly found in electronic and computer equipment, making this knife especially useful for people who regularly work with this type of equipment.
The knife comes with 4 interchangeable bits, each with two heads. When closed, one bit is stored in the driver itself while the other three are housed in a special ‘rack’ that fits below the driver. The ‘rack’ has a small protrusion on the end that prevents the bit in the driver from falling out when closed. All models have Plus Scales, that include a removable pen.
There are 4 models of the Cybertool.
The base model contains 34 different tools and is known as the Cybertool 34 (latterly M). This model is described immediately below, followed by the Cybertool 29 (S), Cybertool 41 (L), and Cybertool Lite, in the models section below.
For the Cybertool 34 (M)
- Large Knife Blade
- Small Knife Blade
- Can Opener/Screwdriver
- Bit Driver and Bit Holder containing these bits:
- Phillips (Pozidrive) 0 / 1

- Torx #10 / #15
- Reamer with sewing eye.
- Mini Screwdriver - Stored in the Corkscrew
- Multipurpose Hook - Not present on the CT 29 (S)
The Cybertool models have Translucent Cellidor scales often in Red (Ruby).
The CT-29, CT-34, and CT-41 are also available with Translucent Blue (Sapphire) scales.
The CT-29 and CT-34 are available with Translucent Onyx scales.
There are four variations of the CyberTool.
Note: The numeric after ‘Cybertool’ in the original model names was meant to indicate the number of functions of that particular model. However this claim can be somewhat contentious (eg Is the keyring really a function?!), so it is not surprising that Victorinox moved to the S,M,L designation.
The three layered Cybertool 29 is the slimmest and lightest model which removes the scissors, pliers, and multi-purpose hook from the CT34.
This is the most common model, consisting of five layers, and is considered the base model. The tool-set is described above.
The seven layered Cybertool 41contains all the tools of the Cybertool 34, and adds the following additional tools:
On the back
The six layered Lite Model extends the Cybertool 34 with one additional tool layer containing the following tools:
- The Beretta Pistol Tool, branded as Victorinox for Beretta, is a special Cybertool 34 made for Italian firearms manufacturer Beretta. It was packaged in a custom hard-plastic velvet lined case with custom manual, belt-pouch, and cleaning solvent. The knife features a custom bit set, for use with Beretta hand guns, and was manufactured with solid color Cellidor scales in blue and black that feature a metal Beretta logo inlay on the top scale and “Victorinox for Beretta” printed on the bottom scale. The bit-set includes the following bits: (1) Hex 2mm / 3mm, (2) Slotted 3mm x 1mm / 4mm x 1mm, (3) Hex 4mm / Torx T8, (4) Slotted 4.5mm x 0.4mm / 4.5mm x 0.7mm. This model appears to only have been made available in parts of Europe and Japan.
- The 125th Anniversary limited edition Cybertool 34 was released in 2009 as part of it’s Jubilee Series that marked its 125th Anniversary. The Jubilee edition has non-translucent red Cellidor scales with a special anniversary logo printing, as well as a second anniversary logo etched on the main blade, and a serial number stamped on the liner behind the corkscrew.
This knife was first introduced in the year 2000, and might very well be considered the 21st century Swiss Army Knife.
In 2009 Victorinox released a limited edition Cybertool 34 as part of it’s Jubilee Series that marked its 125th Anniversary (see Variations).
In 2011 it appeared that the CyberTool-41 was discontinued, at least in North America, possibly due to a new model being under development. Continued 2011 availability in Europe is most likely from existing stock, or based on sales with the current market pricing. However this withdrawal never transpired.
In 2015 Victorinox renamed the CyberTool models. Instead of CT 29, CT 34, CT 41 the names CT S, CT M and CT L are used respectively.
