Victorinox is introducing a light to it's popular Swiss card . This versatile multi-tool is the size of a credit card with features that would put a gold card to shame.
From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army Knife a century ago comes the SwissCard Lite, an ultra-thin multi-tool that's an ideal tag-along accessory for users everywhere. The SwissCard Lite is roughly the size of a credit card, so you can easily fit it in your wallet or pocket. However, the SwissCard Lite performs a ton of tasks that your AmEx card can't, with such tools as a letter opener, a small set of scissors, a pair of tweezers, a straight pin, a pressurized ballpoint pen, and a magnifying glass. And that's just the beginning, as the device also includes such fix-it tools as 3mm and 5mm flat-head screwdrivers, two Phillips screwdrivers, an LED mini light, and a ruler that measures items in both inches and centimeters. In short, there's no better multi-tool for people who find traditional Swiss Army Knives a little bulky. The SwissCard Lite, which measures 3.25 inches long, carries the Victorinox lifetime warranty.
In 1884, Swiss cutler Karl Elsener set up shop in Ibach-Schwyz, installing a waterwheel in Tobelbach Brook to run his grinding and polishing machines. Thus began what would become the international brand name Victorinox, a combination of Victoria, for Elsener's mother, and "inox," or stainless steel. Today, Victorinox produces watches, luggage, clothing, and, famously, Swiss Army Knives. The original product dates to 1897, when Elsener patented the Swiss Officer's and Sports Knife he supplied to the Swiss Army. Following World War II, American servicemen and women shopping in PX stores shortened the name to Swiss Army Knife, which lives on in English-speaking countries around the world and has become a metaphor for versatility.

Compared to the Victorinox Swiss Army Classic Pocket Knife (which I also own), the Swisscard Lite Pocket Tool offer several advantages:
- It can be carried in the wallet (same size as four credit cards stacked together)
- It has detachable tools (especially the blade and scissors)
- It offers several additional functions (such as LED light and magnifier)
The detachable blade is an important feature when I'm traveling. Previously I must remember to remove my pocket knife from keychain, and make sure it is NOT packed with my carry-on, otherwise it will be confiscated by airport security. With this Swisscard tool kit, I just keep the blade at home and carry the rest of the tools with me. By the way, I just tested this during my most recent trip. Apparently the airport security only has problems with blades, but scissors are acceptable.
The most commonly criticism on this Swisscard tool kit is that: it does not contain a 'real' knife. In fact, Victrinox calls the detectable blade a 'letter opener' instead of a 'knife'. However, I have no problems with the blade, because it is actually longer than that of my Swiss Army Classic pocket knife. See my uploaded picture in the 'Customer Images' section, for a side-by-side comparison between the Swisscard and the Classic Pocket Knife.
Finally, the Swisscard Lite makes a more 'gender-neutral' gift compared to the pocket knife. I have already purchased several for the past holiday session, and will probably get more in the future.
One thing I should note is that it doesn't do well in leather wallets because it's hard to get out of the pocket. That was OK with me because I have a cloth wallet. It's falling apart though so I'm getting a Dynomighty Wallet. I will update this review if the swisscard doesn't work with that.
