The Tools of the Swiss Army Knife


This page contains information about Victorinox and Wenger tools - for all frame sizes.

For a Swiss Army Knife, the term 'Tools' refers to the various implements contained within the knife that perform different functions or jobs. Victorinox and Wenger Swiss Army Knives have a lot of tools in common. Each manufacturer also has their own unique tools. These are all described in the sections below.
The available (or once available) assortment of tools listed below are grouped by the designation Layer, or Scale, based on where they are placed in the knife, and by Manufacturer. In some rare cases a tool might be found in a layer on some knives, but in the scales of others.
Note: Since Victorinox and Wenger SAKS merged in 2014, Victorinox has taken on some of the Wenger tools in the 'Delémont' line. The tools in this page are listed according to their original manufacturer.
The tools are listed alphabetically by their primary name. For example, the "Cap Lifter with screwdriver and wire stripper" is listed as Cap Lifter (the manufacture's name), however in some countries it is often referred to as a Bottle Opener.

Specific information about each tool is on its own individual page, along with information related to any additional tools/functions within the same implement.

Layer Tools

Common Tools

This section contains the tools that are common to both manufacturers, for the front and back layers. A tool is regarded as a 'common tool' if its function, as opposed to its design, is the same!
These tools fall broadly into two categories: Tools that are very similar between the two manufacturers: such as the main blade, corkscrew, caplifter/bottle opener; and tools where each manufacturer has their own take, or design of that particular tool: such as the scissors or pliers.
Both categories are listed in this section - The individual tool pages describe the differences between the designs.

The Delémont Range

In 2005 Victorinox took over Wenger. However they ran the two companies completely independently with separate product lines for several years. In 2012 Victorinox announced that they would cease production of Wenger Swiss Army Knives and from 2014 only Victorinox branded knives were produced. However Victorinox decided to continue manufacturing of some of the former Wenger knives under the Victorinox 'Delémont' brand. (See the Delémont section of this Wiki for more details).
Most of the tools in the Delémont range stayed the same as the Wenger originals, however the following Wenger tools were replaced by their Victorinox counterparts and the Wenger versions completely retired.
