Note the retractable pen vs. the removable found in the Signature I Knife. The Signature series are common 58mm Swiss Army Knives made by Victorinox with the same main tools as the Classic, differing only in the scale-tools.

The Signature Lite and Signature Laser are more recent additions to the series, see Models section for details.

Layer Tools 

Scale Tools


Like the Classic, the Signature comes in a wide variety of colours, although the Signature is not available with scales in any material other than Cellidor (plastic).
The Silver-Tech scales are available on the Signature Lite model.


The Signature Series has three major variations. The difference being the design of the pen and the inclusion, or not, of an LED light or red Laser.

Signature I

This was the original Signature and included a small removable ballpoint pen in the scales.
It is no longer manufactured.

Signature II

The Signature II is an improved design that addressed the poor (due to its size) writing ability of the small removable pen in the original model.
The Signature II has a retractable  pen, which is engaged by pushing down a small grey slide located about half way up the scale, by the scissors. Since the pen remains connected to the knife, the knife body improves the length and usability of the pen. The nail file can also be opened when using the pen to further increase overall length, and allowing it to better rest in the hand.
The Signature II is now referred to as the Signature, since the earlier model is no longer manufactured.

Signature Lite

A more recent model, the Signature Lite replaces the tweezers in the Signature with a small white LED light. Note: In the original version this light was red.
The light is activated by pressing and holding the Victorinox shield in the scales, which acts as a momentary switch.
In 2008 Victorinox introduced the Signature Lite with the new clear translucent Silver-Tech scales. These scales feature a new white LED light that is significantly brighter than the red light models.

Signature Laser

Very similar to the Signature Lite, with the LED light being replaced with a Red Laser. The Laser variation was introduced in 2007.
