Victorinox SwissMemory - 512Mb The Victorinox SwissMemory series combined a Flash-Drive or Thumb-Drive  computer memory device with the ubiquitous tried-and-teted Victorinox 58mm Swiss Army Knife.
The SwissMemory is essentially a Victorinox Signature model mated with a USB Flash Drive.
There are a number of different SwissMemory models making it more of a series, than a single model. The differences include bladed tools, scale tools, and memory capacity.


Layer Tools

Victorinox SwissMemory Alox - 1Gb

Scale Tools


Available with Cellidor and Alox scales, translucent red (ruby), and translucent blue (sapphire) in Cellidor, and silver in the Alox handles.
The Alox scaled SwissMemory does not have the LED  or Retractable Pen.


SwissMemory Flight

This model removes all the bladed tools retaining only the thumb drive which makes this particular tool acceptable to carry on board a plane in the US.
There is an Alox version of the SwissMemory Flight, also removing the scale tools, keeping only the key ring.

SwissMemory Laser

This model replaces the red LED with a small red Laser Pointer. All other things remain the same.
There is no Alox version as the Cellidor scales are required to house the laser.

SwissMemory Flight Laser

Combining the two above variations, this model removes the blades to make it airline friendly and replaces the LED with a Laser Pointer.
There is no Alox version as the Cellidor scales are required to house the laser.


Memory Capacity

The size of the memory in the removable thumb drive varies greatly. Early units have as small as 64 Megabytes while the later models had as much as 2 Gigabytes. Memory capacity is independent of the other variations. Ie Any of the tool variations may have a different memory capacity.
Sizes available as of 4/2007 were 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB.

LED Lights

1 Gigabyte and higher memory capacity knives have a White Light while models sold with a lower memory capacity have Red Lights. The white LED lights are much brighter than the red lights.


The Swiss Memory was first introduced in 2005. In 2006 the 'Flight' variation was created, providing a model that was compatible with airline travel.
The laser models were first introduced in early 2007.

This family was replaced by the Victorinox Flash family and then by later models. The current Victorinox 58mm models containing USB devices are the '...@Work' series, such as the Victorinox@Work
