Return it. Call them or email them. They will fix it.

If sold and shipped by Amazon, you may be OK. If sold and shipped by one of Amazon's sub-stores (a lot Chinese), may be screwed. Hope it works out.

Is there supposed to be a toothpick in the box?  The amazon product listing says 7 fuctions but the swissarmy.com product listing says 8 functions.

Is it this one? Because that listing is incorrect, it shows a Signature Lite, which has no toothpick.

But anyways I'd say the battery should be there!

You should seriously visit vicfan.com. All the hoopy froods are doing it.

:iagree:
No matter what, the light should work on arrival.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

The questions say it comes with battery which you must install.  Check your packaging, might be in there somewhere. Also, no toothpick listed as tool.
Those little batteries (389) are available most everywhere. If you know how to install it. Maybe the lesser of two evils just to buy a battery locally?? If not, send it back to AMAZON (sold and shipped by them). If can't find battery, question response says CR1025 works fine.

i'll just buy a battery at walgreens not worth the hassle of sending it back not sure how this could have happened the box looked sealed and the knife looked new i guess somebody could have glued the box closed this is why i hate ordering from amazon every time i'm at the post office i see a line of people with amazon boxes in their hands trying to return things only reason i ordered from them is so i could pick up the package at the locker, thanks

In case you didn't see
my edit. from Amazon page questions:

"If can't find battery, question response says CR1025 works fine."

Of course I can't verify that. Don't have that knife.

CR1025 is for older variants. Newer ones are supposed to use SR1130W (different voltage). The attached Victorinox document has battery specs and replacement instructions for most of their relevant models.

In my experience, no. I’d think the tips would have to be quite bent to do that.

I am getting the feeling you received a SAK someone messed with already. The chance a SAK like that made it out of the factory is very slim. One issue maybe, but all of these? I doubt it.
I would return it and ask for a replacement. Amazon is very good exchanging damaged items.
