Victorinox has unveiled a Solid State Drive and USB add-on for everyone’s favourite survival tool, the Swiss Army knife. 

The stick style devices, which are USB 3.0 ready, simply clip into the housing, between the usual knife, scissor and nail file combination. They are available in memory sizes ranging from 15GB to 1TB.

Even the graphic display can’t help you when it comes to building a raft to cross a stream. Can it?
