Gath, your post got me thinking about the pace of Victorinox tool innovations.  I put together a rough list going back to the introduction of the pliers in 1985.  This list doesn't include minor modifications, like the changes in material or length of existing tools.

2018 - Large Marlinspike (Skipper Pro)
2017 - Corkscrew Lever Tool w/ Bottle Opener (Wine Master)
2017 - End-Pivot Corkscrew (Wine Master)
2011 - Laser Pointer (Presentation Master, Presentation Master Flight)
2011 - Bluetooth Controller (Presentation Master, Presentation Master Flight)
2010 - Cheese Blade (Cheese Knife)
2007 - Replaceable Disc Saw (RescueTool)
2007 - Replaceable Window Breaker (RescueTool)
2006 - Digital Clock/Alarm/Timer/Altimeter/Barometer/Thermometer (Traveller, Traveller Lite, Expedition Lite)
2005 - USB Flash  Drive (multiple 58mm models)
2002 - LED Light (multiple 58mm & 91mm models)
2002 - Butane Lighter (CampFlame, SwissFlame, SwissChamp XXLT)
2001? - Digital Clock (Voyager, Voyager Lite, TimeKeeper Alarm)
2000 - Digital Altimeter and Barometer (Altimeter)
1999 Bit Driver (CyberTools)
1998 - Multipurpose Hook w/Nail File (Compact)
1996 - Pliers w/ Crimper (multiple 91mm models)
1992 - Analog Clock (TimeKeeper)
1991 - Multipurpose Hook (multiple 91mm models)
1985 - Pliers (multiple 91mm models)


When you filter out the ones that are no longer produced, the ones that are only available on one (usually expensive) model, and the ones that most people find of questionable or limited value, it's been pretty slim pickings.

Very interesting post FiL - Thanks for compiling the list

Had the same thought on “slim pickings” myself

For me over the last 30 years - It’s only been the hook and the Cybertool that are generally useful additions for all!
 
Of course there are all the specialist tools - especially from Wenger, which were just great! .....But not widely desirable

But then you think about, say the SwissChamp, and you really are well equipped to deal with most (small?) day to day tasks! Do we really need any more tools?

So I think the future is only really in the specialist tools eg Marlin spike, wine tools, tic extractor etc!
