Swisstools the different models
on: June 02, 2007, 11:48:02 AM
Many people get confused about how many different models of Swisstools there are or didn’t realize there is more then one , so I was asked by Def to say a few words that may be of some help.

Firstly there are three versions of the large Swisstool

The Standard , which has a plain blade and a  serrated blade



Then the X model which swaps the serrated blade for scissors



Then the RS ( Rescue & Security ) which is the same as the X but swaps the file for a curved serrated rescue blade ( belt cutter )



CS stands for corkscrew which is just an add on corscrew which slots in the lanyard hole , and the plus which includes the little wrench .

Good explanation Dunc. Simple as it is, I can remember being confused about the different SwissTool variations for quite some time. For some reason I kept thinking that the SwissTool CS was an entirely different model.

Great Post and Great Pictures. :cheers:  The X tool now serves as my background.

Question:  The chisel/crate opener on my spirit has an extra beveled cutting edge than the one on my xtool.  I find the newer Spirit tool more handy.  Do the newer Swisstools have the corner ground blade.

All I need now are a SwissTool X and a Spirit S model and my SwissTool collection will be complete!

Not that it will stop me from getting more of them down the line!

Hi All,

I'm a new member in this forum, from Denmark, I've had SAK's since late 1999, i hope i do this right i have a quistion regarding accessories for swisstools.

Currently I have a swisstool std. from 99, and a swisstool RS from last year, i'd like the RS the best because of the sissors and the rescue blade, but now to the question, I'm looking for a bit adapter for 1/4" std bits, i have seen in a article here on MT.org that the universal tool adapter from leatherman can be used with the swisstool, I allreasy know that the tool adapter can be used with std bits, but you also have the wrench or ratchet from Victorinox, can they be used with std 1/4" bits, or do i have to buy the solution from leatherman.

Sorry for my bad English.

Regards,
Martin

Your English sounds fine to me!  Welcome to Multitool.org!

The wrench and ratchet from Victorinox both take standard 1/4 inch bits.  For the best price on Victorinox, contact one of our banner advertisers at felinevet@sosakonline.com and I am certain he will help you out.

The only swisstool that I own is the Spirit.  I like it very very much.  Although, I would like to get one of the larger swisstools because although I love the spirit I like spearpoint blades.  I have no desire to buy the spirit "S" model because I have a spirit and would like to try somthing different.  Besides, it is a Victorinox and I know that it will not disappoint me.

The black beauty is produced only in the standard model layout.

Recap on the SwissTool models, which differ only in the four "long" blades:

STANDARD..............plain knife........saw blade.........serrated knife.........file
SWISSTOOL X.........plain knife........saw blade.........scissors.................file
SWISSTOOL RS........plain knife........saw blade.........scissors................curved rescue blade

SWISSTOOL CS......same exact thing as the X model, but packaged with a removeable corkscrew accessory.

 My wish:  Swisstool model with the 4 big blades: PE blade, serrated blade, file, and saw (like the standard model) but lose the scraper/crate opener and replace it with a small scissors.  Kinda like a LM Charge.  This shouldn't be too difficult or costly to build.

That crate opener is damn handy at times though.  :)  I agree though, a Swisstool combining both type of blade, the file and the scissors would be awesome.

one of our new members (bdws1975) showed me something today, Victorinox calls the Spirit, the Swisstool Spirit, isn't that confusing?
it's not another model of the Swisstool, but a whole different animal. Eye's confused :-\

I suppose the way to look at it (and this may only make sense to me  :D) is that the Spirit is a different form of the Swisstool rather than a completely new one.

There are 2 models of Swisstool Spirit, the standard and the 'S' model.  The S doesn't have the scissors but does have a PE blade.

You can also buy a Plus model which has a wrench as well as a 'plus ratchet' model which has a ratchet included.  The Spirit is the same as the standard one though.

That's one thing I don't understand about Victorinox: why go to the trouble of installing an awesome bit kit into the Cybertools, if you're still selling stone age* bit drivers?

I really like the idea of the separate bit drivers.  It's rare that I need any "additions" to a tool and therefore it's handy to be able to leave some at home.

I've never handled a Cybertool. What's so "stone age" about the bit drivers? ???
