This is a review of the Swiss Army keychain knives that attempt to cram as much functionality into a tiny format as possible. They're meant for light-duty, every day tasks. These knives are:

Victorinox Midnite Manager

Victorininox Midnite Minichamp

Wenger Pocket Tool Chest

All three offer a number of tools in a small package, and all have a LED light incorporated.

Let's start with the Victorinox Midnite Manager. This is the most modest of the three. It has the least tools, but as a consequence, it is also the smallest. It is thinner than the two other offerings, and shorter and narrower than the Wenger as well. Each of the four folding tools has a clear, unambiguous purpose. The knife requires no explanation. The scissors are functional, but nowhere near as useful as they are on larger Victorinoxes. The nail file works fine, but is only profiled on one side. The cap lifter/ screwdriver is somewhat of a mixed bag - the cap lifter works with a little difficulty and it's very hard to get a cap off on the first try. The screwdriver is excellent, with a magnetized tip. There is also a wire stripper which I have not used. In the scales, there is a pen, which works well, and an LED light, which provides ample lights for small emergencies - finding a keyhole, connecting computer cables, etc.

Next up is the Victorinox Midnite Minichamp. It has all the same tools the Manager has - and they all work the same - but it adds a wharncliffe knife blade, a ruler/screwdriver, a cuticle pusher, and an orange peeler. These tools are a mixed bag. There is definitely utility in having a second blade - you can use one for messy jobs, and keep the other razor sharp.

Just about everything about this knife is perfect. There's really nothing positive for me to add that hasn't already been covered in one of the other reviews. I'm writing this review to point out what I'd consider to be some design flaws in this knife. Firstly, the LED light has 2 batteries as opposed to the competitive Victorinox facsimile's 1. But, in spite having twice the juice the light is easily 1/4 as bright. I understand this is obviously due to recent advancements in LED technology. But, for an LED with two batteries to power it. It's awfully dim. Second is the lack of a Phillips head screw driver. Another feature that the Victorinox models have that this knife lacks. Instead we get two flat heads. I suppose you could use a flat head to unscrew a Phillips head screw, but, I'd never recommend it. They could have easily replaced one of the flat heads with the nail cleaner. Freeing up a space for the Phillips. Then you'd have the best of both. Thirdly and lastly there is what I consider the biggest and most obvious design flaw. The knife and the nail file are mounted directly next to each other. So, when you go to deploy one of them. The metal on the file scratches the metal on the blade. The first time I opened this knife I essentially ruined it. There's a long line of scratches down the side of the blade. The worst part is every time I open the knife the scratches get deeper. I guess I can put some tape over the file so it won't scratch the knife. But, WTF!? Who the hell designs a knife that scratches it's self when you open it? That's an unforgivable design flaw. This is a serious fail here, Wenger. The file could easily have been put on the opposite side. Thus saving the blade from having no choice but to rub against it when it's being opened.

Very bright white LED light which uses two, instead of one battery like the Victorinox. Also has a bottle opener which the Victorinox does not have.

Wenger is out of the knife business. Victorinox has re-branded some of Wenger's pocket knives to keep them available in its "Delémont Collection," but not this model. If you want a new Microlight Pocket Tool Chest, now is a good time to buy one.

The microlight on this knife is a 3.5 mm white LED powered by two lithium watch batteries (a common size which is easy to find). The batteries are in a pull-out tray and they are easy to replace. The LED is not just a keyhole-finder: it is powerful enough for finding your footing in the dark. Victorinox's equivalent keychain knives are the Victorinox Midnite Minichamp and Victorinox Midnite Manager. These Victorinox knives have a 3.5 mm white LED powered by a single lithium watch battery. Wenger's Microlight Pocket Tool Chest is 50% brighter. It is as bright as the Victorinox Spartan Lite, a much larger knife which also uses two lithium watch batteries.

I have used all of the knives mentioned above. They are all useful when you have no other light, but only the Wenger and the Spartan Lite are bright enough to to let your clearly see your footing in total darkness in an unfamiliar place.

A few comments on Wenger's tools:

The awl has a needle point and a sewing eye but no edge, so it is not a good reamer.

The scissor blades are serrated and self-sharpening. The scissors spring is more robust than Victorinox's but it is not replaceable.
