From the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago comes this set of tools to tuck into your pocket, purse, glove compartment, fishing-tackle box, or anyplace else where it may come in handy. Measuring just 2-1/4 inches long--smaller than a pack of gum--and sheathed in the famous Swiss Army red plastic, the Midnite Minichamp is a toolbox and manicure kit small enough to fit into a pocket or clip onto a key ring and features a new LED mini white light. A valued companion that provides security and confidence, this pocket knife consists of 16 separate features and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. The tools folded inside the pocket knife are a small knife blade, scissors, a nail file with a screwdriver tip, orange peeler with scraper, and more.
Whether you're at home or traveling, the Victorinox Midnite Minichamp ensures you always have the right tool on hand for every situation. Made by the renowned company that created the Swiss Army knife a century ago, the Midnite Manager is stylishly cased in a red housing with the familiar Victorinox logo on the side. More importantly, the unit contains several tools that come in handy wherever you are, including a bright white LED flashlight, an integrated ballpoint pen that slides open, a set of mini scissors, and a small cutting blade. The multi-tool also handles small fix-it projects thanks to the flat screwdriver with integrated ruler, the wire stripper, and the cap lifter with magnet, which includes a Phillips screwdriver on the end. Other tools include a nail file with a nail cleaner, a cuticle pusher, a blade-style letter opener, an orange peeler with scraper, and a key ring for easy transport.
The Midnite Minichamp includes a built-in white LED flashlight.

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.

Top Customer Reviews
Blade - this is the same type small blade that's found on most multi-blade Victorinox Swiss Army knives. It's non-locking (so be careful) and hold a very sharp edge for a long time.
Scissors - very handy for paper, cardboard, aluminum foil, plastic and other such soft materials. Just don't use it to cut wire or hard items, as you'll quickly dull the blades.
Nail file with nail cleaner tip - has a roughened metal surface which doesn't clog when taking off rough spots from fingernails. It will probably never wear out, and the nail cleaner does it's job very well.
Cuticle pusher - many people look puzzled at first glance at this one, but it works quite well. Have a friend that thinks his is an upscale version of Jeff Foxworthy's infamous car key (in place of a Q-Tip) as he sticks it in his ear, but that's his opinion.
Ruler with a screwdriver tip - the ruler is about 1-1/2" (40 mm) long, and is marked in inches and metric units. The screwdriver blade at the end is good for small slotted screws.
Emergency blade - this is a second small blade that's a bit narrower than the regular small blade, and has a slight curvature which makes it work better when opening small packages and letters. It's also quite useful for removing splinters... so keep it clean!
Orange peeler with scraper - this is an underrated gem of a blade that has a notch and a sharp edge on one side of the notch. Just poke the blade under the orange rind, then pull it along to slice the rind without cutting the orange itself. It also doubles as a handy little scraper or wire stripper, but use it carefully. It does indiscriminate tasks that no other blade can handle.
Bottle opener with magnetic Phillips screwdriver - opens bottles quite well, and the Phillips screwdriver is a pretty handy size for smaller screws. It also has a handy cutout to be used as a wire scraper.
Key ring - well, this is really more useful as a ring to attach the Midnite Minichamp to a real keyring or to a lanyard.
LED mini light - just press on the red Swiss Army logo, and you'll have an handy LED, useful for finding a key hole, etc.
Retractable pen - it's a simple (pressurized) ballpoint pen, so it doesn't leak. It seems to have a very long life, and if you open the cuticle pusher or nail file as an extension, it fits the hand better when writing.
By the way, the battery lasts for years, but should you need to replace it, just look for a CR1025 button cell at a grocery or drug store. Just don't know where I'll find a replacement refill for the ballpoint pen.
By the way, there are other color variations available on this product. You can get it with Translucent Ruby or Translucent Sapphire handles, but the prices often vary.
So how does this small multipurpose tool hold up? Have had mine for almost seven years now and use it on an almost-daily basis. It's made of stainless steel, so there's no rust, and I just replaced the battery for the LED a couple of months ago, even though it was still working.
This is a true five-star gem, that's for sure!
Because it's light, very useful and comfy in the pocket it's my favorite every day urban carry. And it's Victorinox,, so you know you're getting quality. Spend 30-40 bucks and you'll have a great tool you can carry for years ans years to come.
-Ink pen! Yes, this is an amazing feature of the Minichamp line. This replaceable and retractable ballpoint pen has blue ink (which for us non-pen-fanatics is commonly recommended to sign forms so it stands out). The pen is also pressurized, meaning in theory it will always deliver all its ink, and not stop halfway like a cheap "bic/straight" pen. Refills can be ordered online.
-Flashlight! You slide the included watch battery into its slot, and press the "swiss army" logo for a light. It's a nice balance of brightness and durability, exactly what you'd expect.
-Depth gauge / ruler! One of the real stars of the Minichamp line. Ever wanted to check your car's tire tread but couldn't remember how the penny trick works? Use this handy depth rule to do get the exact number. Sure it's only a few inches, but that's all you need for a lot of jobs.
-TWO BLADES! If any feature is really going to knock a Swiss army fan out of their chair, it's that this model has two blades. One is the normal mini blade, the other is an even smaller blade. Together, you can use one as a "utility" blade to always keep the other razor sharp when you need it.
-Most of the usuals. Nail file, bottle opener / wire stripper / screwdriver, and scissors.
-Smaller size. Not as tiny as the smallest unit, but then again it's big enough that you won't lose it fumbling around in your pocket. A good size, exactly what you'd expect.
-Cuticle pusher / spoon? This is a really weird tool. I don't know many men who push back their cuticles anyway (personally it causes my nails to get infected so I never do it), and unless you're a drug dealer you don't need a spoon this size. Weird choice.
-Orange peeler? I mean you already have a knife, so why do you need a fruit-specific tool? It is however another sharp bit, which always has uses. But if I had to pick a weak tool, this would be it.
-Once we have two useless tools, then Victorinox could have made the entire tool one space thinner by removing those tools and moving the rest around. And that's the real crime. So this knife fits in your pocket that much worse, because of these dumb tools.
-No toothpick/tweezers. It's easy to see why they weren't included, as the pen mechanism and flashlight battery block off each side, but some enterprising engineer at Victorinox could probably find a way. If the minichamp got rid of the two useless tools and added in the classics, it would be perfect.
Summary: Compared to other similar pocketknives, the Minichamp Midnite lacks a toothpick and tweezers, but has two blades and the pen/flashlight combo. The Minichamp Midnite is a strong contender for best pocket multitool ever, held back only by two dumb tools that you'll probably find a use for anyway. The pen and flashlight are lifesavers, well worth your consideration.
Compared to the regular Minichamp: The regular unit trades the flashlight slot for one place to store either tweezers or a toothpick. That seems like an obvious area for improvement, surely someone could figure out a way to give you both. But, if you don't like the flashlight and do like the tweezer/pick options, it's out there.
