Sometimes, I see obvious hookups where others, perhaps including large-ish corporations, don't. One such company, whose product I've known and relied upon for most of my time on this planet, is celebrating its 125th Anniversary. Our beloved brand just celebrated its 75th. This photo came across my Inbox a day ago (still catching up on my e-mail…300+ a day, and counting), and I'll be damned if I'm not being spied on...
So…were there any Vespas in this here Swiss Army?

So, are the manufacturers os Swiss Army knives including a torx blade? Enquiring minds want to know.

Geeze, I only get 250 or so emails a day.... I have to look in the spam box for the important ones.

In fact, they are: their Cybertool Lite, which I've owned for over a decade, has (among other stuff) a built-in driver with the following bits: large/small Phillips, large/small flat-head, T-8/
10/15. And an LED flashlight that's actually useful.

I'd call that misplaced envy.

And: Now I'm convinced someone out there seriously has my number...
Cybertool Lite: As close to do-it-all as I've found, so far.

My parents gave me a Cybertool for my 14th birthday. One of the bits broke many years ago.

This post just gave me a flashback to last fall, at a little stand in Interlaklen that sold all sorts of Swiss Army Knives. I feel like they had replacement bits, but I didn't buy one. I don't remember if it was because they didn't have the one I needed, or if I just forgot to purchase one before I left.
