May I ask LightFR & SLT.AMBEMC do you guys know if the French armies Swisstools have any markings on them to signify military issue  :think: :think:.

The Australian Defense forces have used Swisstools for some time & they have a NATO marking on them (Australia is not part of NATO  ??? ??? ??? :D)

Some pics of the Aussie issue Swisstool markings/military ID

Good question Matthe   :tu: , I did a little digging (  ;) ) lastnight and I can confirm fifth and sixth numbers ( 25 ) are to signifey Norway was the first country to register this tool as Military/Nato issue .

http://stampedout.net/odds-007-ncb.html

What this means is that any country which adopts the tool from then on it will still carry the number of the original country .Hence the codes on the Australian Swisstool . While Australia isn't part of NATO it is a supporting country and has its own code which is 66.

But the new French ones have a Cap Crimper plier head  :think: does that mean if it has got a number stamped on it will it be that same as the other Swisstoolls ?

Thanks for that Dunc  :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:. Great investigative work mate , I did some digging but just got the NATO thing.

It did bother me that I thought the Diggers had been branded for NATO & not Oz  :ahhh :D :D :D

From what I know some years back the Australian Military were looking for a Multitool and held trials , Vic submitted the Std Swisstool and I know LM put up the Supertool 200 but I don't know what other ( if any ) were also in the trial .The Swisstool was choosen  :D It does seem a very popular choice among Armies . They must of read my review  :rofl:

Hello MultiMat,
We just know that the order was placed by the French Army, I haven't saw one yet.
As france is part of the NATO It is highly possible that they will get an number. It is also highly possible that they get "Armée Française" on it !

Re military markings, based on the equipment I was issued with during my service, it is likely the Swisstool will have some specific code/marking, an inventory number at the very least (to avoid them bein nicked) and probably no brand. I think I have a pic of the Swisstool in a French knife mag and that it had the Felin logo stamped on it (a kind of tiger or puma). I'll have a look.

I managed to find this: jackgers.blogspot.com/2010/11/30-000-swiss-tool-for-french-army.html
The picture is not very good but you can guess that there is actually the Victorinox markings (stamped) on one handle and on the other handle the Felin logo. Cannot see a C4 punch but the plier head is shaped as a crimper.

30 000 Swisstools  :o  thats more then Chako has  :D

I don't think it has a dedicated C4 punch . It looks like a Standard Swisstool but with a Cap Crimper plier head .

HI

I have some information on the Black oxide what it is, and yes from  :)Victorinox, i have a few tools now and the latest was a used SwissTool Black Oxide 3.0323.3. (standard functions)

B.oxide:

Bluing (black oxide or blackening) is a passivation process and is named after the blue-black appearance of the resulting protective finish. It is used to add mild corrosion resistance and for appearance. One of its advantages over other coatings is its minimal buildup. Bluing, being a chemical conversion coating, is not as robust against wear as plated coatings, and is typically no thicker than 2.5 micrometres (0.0001 inches). The Victorinox blackening process is appropriate for stainless and high alloy steel.

NM, Nice, but there is not much mystery in the BO finish;  However; can you get them to spill the beans (or give just a little more info) on the coating/plating/material-transform used on the Spirit RT?

Thanks for getting us info and comments from Victorinox, on all sorts of topics.

Something a little different; a Black Bit-Kit.  Included with a BMW Motorcycles branded SwissTool - X kit.

Speaking of black Swisstools and motorcycles, another variation is this Aprilia Black Iron 23 tool 8)

I wish Vic would make a version of the Spirit with a plain edge pen knife blade, wood saw, scissors and the belt cutter from the SwissTool.  Basically the Spirit X with the metal file replaced with the belt cutter. :tu:  I own a SwissTool and a SwissTool RS.  I like the RS much better.

I really like the tools in black finish casing! SwissTool especially looks good in black. :tu:
But I think that in every multitools must be present scissors. This is a very important option, in my opinion.

Yes the black ones are very cool. The black bit holder looks better than the red one too!

I have got my first SwissTool (4.0883.L). I am very happy with it. But two things are bugging me. First, it‘s plier head has no markings on it, so it is not similar to any of these examples. I almost started thinking that I have a fake. But then I found that one member has the same looking one (so either we both have fakes, or we both don’t). Second, ruler numbers on one side look bold, and on another side look normal. I took a few images, I hope you can see the difference.
So two questions: is it fake and is it normal to have a different type of numbers used on the ruler?

Its not a Fake , Vic have recently moved the logos about on the Spirit model and stopped putting their shield on the plier head so looks like they've done the same on the Swisstool.

while its not on every model  I have seen it on more then one occasion to have fainter numbers on one handle then the other. As long as you can read them ok then you'll be fine  :tu:

I just received a new SwissTool Spirit X today and the plier head does not have any emblem stamping.
The handles do have an excellent name stamp and Vic symbol on both handles.

Didn't think it would warrant its own thread so i'm bumping this one :

I just got my first Swisstool (CS Plus with ratchet & leather sheath) and I have a few questions...

- I bought it brand new last week, but the box says 2011 (no date on the tool itself though). I'm pretty sure it means it's been on the store shelf since then, but I was just wondering if some of you have 2012 or 2013 boxes?

- With that in mind, are there any changes made to the 2012/2013 models? Since i've just bought it, it'd be a shame to miss out on new stuff.

- I was suprised to see that it doesn't have the red and white "Victorinox" stamp on it, but after a quick search it seems the newer ones are all like this. Does anyone know when they lost the logo?


Any help much appreciated :)

Does anyone have a Victorinox catalog pic of the 1998 Victorinox SwissTool X set which also included screwdriver bits, the "L" shaped bit drive bar, and nylon case that holds all?
