The unique feature of the Cybertools is the bit-driver which comes with four interchangeable bits, each with two heads. Many of the bits are designed for screw types and sizes commonly found in electronic and computer equipment, making these models especially useful for people who regularly work with this type of equipment.
When closed, one bit is stored in the driver itself while the other three are housed in a special 'rack' that fits below the driver. The rack has a small protrusion on the end that prevents the bit in the driver from falling out.
All models have 'Plus' Scales, that include a removable pen.

The Cybertools have translucent red (ruby) Cellidor scales.

In the past, the CT-29 and CT-41 were also available with sapphire scales, and the CT-29 and CT-34 were available with translucent onyx scales.
There are four models of the CyberTool.
Note: The numeric after 'Cybertool' in the original model names was meant to indicate the number of functions of that particular model.
However this claim can be somewhat contentious (eg Is the keyring really a function?!), so it is not surprising that Victorinox moved to the S,M,L designation.
Originally known as the Cybertool 29, the three-layered Cybertool S is the slimmest and lightest model.
It removes the scissors, pliers, and multi-purpose hook from the CT M.
This is the most common (considered the base) model, originally known as the Cybertool 34, it has five layers. The tool-set is described above.
Originally known as the Cybertool 41, the seven-layered Cybertool L contains all the tools of the Cybertool M, adding the following additional tools:

The six-layered Lite model extends the Cybertool M with one additional tool layer containing the following tools:
- The Beretta Pistol Tool, branded as Victorinox for Beretta, is a special Cybertool 34 made for the Italian firearms manufacturer Beretta. It was packaged in a custom hard-plastic velvet lined case with a custom manual, belt-pouch, and cleaning solvent. It was only available in parts of Europe and Japan.
It featured solid color Cellidor scales, in blue and black, that sported a metal Beretta logo inlay on the top scale and Victorinox for Beretta printed on the bottom scale.
It also featured a custom bit set, for use with Beretta hand guns, that featured two unique bits:
- Torx #8 / Hex 4mm - Standard in the Cybertools
- Slotted 3x1mm / 4x1mm - Available in the double Cybertool X models
- Slotted 4.5x0.4mm / 4.5x0.7mm
- Hex 2 / 3 mm
- The 125th Anniversary limited edition Cybertool 34 was released in 2009 as part of the Jubilee Series that marked Victorinox's 125th Anniversary. The Jubilee Edition has non-translucent red Cellidor scales with a special anniversary logo printing, as well as another anniversary logo etched on the main blade, and a serial number stamped on the liner behind the corkscrew.
- The CyberTool M Carbon is a carbon scaled CyberTool 34, which was released in July 9, 2018. Production was limited to 400 pieces, according to the Victorinox salesman.
- The VSAKCS 2019 20th Anniversary model was a custom Cybertool S (29) with wooden scales.
- The SurfTool, made for the Japanese market, is basically a Cybertool M (34) with special bits for use on surfboards. White or sapphire scales with SurfTool printed on the front.
The CyberTools were first introduced in the year 2000, and might very well be considered the 21st century Swiss Army Knives. The models were originally known as the CyberTools 29, 34, 41 and Lite. In 2015 Victorinox renamed the CyberTools 29, 34 and 41 to be the CyberTools S, M and L respectively.
In 2009 Victorinox released a limited edition Cybertool 34 as part of its Jubilee Series that marked its 125th Anniversary (see Variations).
"In 2011 it appeared that the CyberTool 41 was discontinued, at least in North America, possibly due to a new model being under development. Continued 2011 availability in Europe was thought to be from existing stock, or based on sales with the current market pricing." Later Wiki Update: This withdrawal never transpired, and was probably speculation!
