Victorinox Announces 1TB Swiss Army SSD – CES 2012 Update

Victorinox, well known for their Swiss Army Knives and high quality cutlery, has managed to integrate a desktop class SSD into, you guessed it, a Swiss Army Knife!

Dubbed the Victorinox SSD, the new device will be available in capacities of 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and, get this, 1 TB!

The unique device will offer both eSATA 2/3 and USB 2/3 interfaces and will deliver read and write rates of 220 MB/s and 150MB/s respectively.

The new drives will also feature 256 bit AES encryption, further adding to the drive’s McGuyver-esque qualities. All those sensitive files will be safe from those cunning camping buddies of yours, putting your mind at ease while you whittle wood by the fire!

The SSD will also feature a Bi-Stable graphic display, for easy labeling of contents.

The sheer exclusiveness of such a device will no doubt be appealing to quite a few people and, in addition to its significant utility, it will likely make an excellent conversation piece.

Also being announced is what the company is calling the Victorinox Slim 3.0. This drive will be available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128 GB variants, and provide a USB 3.0 interface. The Slim will be available in black, red, green, blue and classic ruby.


Both devices will include a fully functional pocket knife (you must choose the ruby option for the slim) and the Victorinox SSD will even allow you to swap out the knife body for a flight friendly version, allowing you to skip having to get acquainted with flight security.

In addition to the novelty of being both a pocket knife and an SSD, the drives are also being touted as the world’s smallest high capacity SSDs, which is certainly something to be taken into consideration if you require lots of fast, portable storage. Just consider the pocket knife icing on the cake, and make sure you have a strong keychain, especially if you’re one of those people who go through several flash drives per year.

Prices haven’t been disclosed yet, but expect these little wonders to command a hefty premium. Hey, no one said combining storage with legendary utility was going to be cheap.
