If you hurry, you can still get a Victorinox USB keychain knife. Detach the USB drive, use it for something else, and mill a fire starter to fit the empty slot. Just an open hook at the pivoting end to leave it in the frame, or remove it completely.
Something strange is going on with the "assault model" of the USB keychain knife. I paid $200 for the all-up version with 32GB, a fingerprint reader, laser, and IR projector controller. Now it's going for about $750. A "naked" USB-only device is about $8 and up (for a small amount of RAM). Anything with a knife, light, laser, or scissors on it is well over $100. RAM upgrades are relatively cheap, but a bit more expensive than cheap generic chicom USB drives. Besides the custom packaging, they have been tested by independent labs to meet and far exceed all the EU standards for RAM that everybody claims to meet.
For $158, you can get still(?)this Alox model with 32GB, knife, file, and scissors. But no target designator or remote detonator. Something fishy definitely going on, waaaay under the radar.
Watched a mega factories episode on discovery channel a few years ago on victorinox Swiss Army Knives .... The heir apparent / CEO is a freaky individual ..... Very very strange way of speaking.
I’ve written a lot of letters to victorinox Over the years with suggestions and they have been very professional and kind in their responses even to the point of sending me free knives as thanks.
As you state there is something religious about basic hand wrought steel. my grail of knives is a simple Parang made for me from a leaf spring off a Russian truck by a little yellow bug eater in Laos . It is next to my Michelin tire sandals and my elephant hair bracelet and brass Buddha that one can still see just a little bit of the lake city markings on the 7.62mm brass used to make it.....
Bo Randall # 14, Terzoulas ACTF, and Vaughn Neeleys Timberline Chute knive are all cherished knives, carried for many years. Those men know the needs of working knives be they dressing out harvested wild game or dressing for the wild game of hunting enemies.
Brother recently picked up a du**star Magen fixed blade while he was in Israel ... Well made in Tel Aviv ....they made it while he waited in their shop for me.
Good people, great knives ....
Stay safe 300 !
