How much are you willing to pay for a Swiss Army knife with 1 terabyte of high-speed storage?

Victorinox Swiss Army SSD

I know Christmas is over, but any time of year is perfect to give someone this new Swiss Army knife. However, the unit doesn’t come cheap at all, as Victorinox priced it at $3,000.

So what makes this pocket knife so expensive?

The multi-tool features an SSD, which according to the company, is the world’s smallest high-capacity solid state drive. Data transfer speeds are 220 MB/s for reading and 150 MB/s for writing data, and offers up to a terabyte of storage (1,000 gigabytes), which is a lot more than most laptop hard drives. It also comes with a Bi-Stable graphic display with 96 x 48 resolution, which will show you what’s on your device and how much room you have left.

All you frequent travelers need not worry. The Victorinox Swiss Army SSD is equipped with two knife bodies, between which the drive can easily be interchanged with one that is flight-friendly and the other which includes essentials such as blade, scissors, and screw driver.

The device won’t be available until August so I guess there’s still more time to save up.
