Expedition Lite

Victorinox Expedition Lite. Picture by jazzbass. The Victorinox Expedition Lite is a 91mm Swiss Army Knife first introduced in 2008.
It is an ugrade to the Traveller Lite, adding the wood saw, metal file/saw, backspring chisel and fine screwdriver. This model is impressive for the large number of 'bladed' tools it includes, its flashlight, and the extensive set of electronic capablities in the scales.

It is usually sold as part of the Expedition Kit (see details below).
Note: Not to be confused with the older Expedition Kit  that included the Altimeter/Altimeter Plus, or other models.
