Victorinox Swiss Army, makers of the popular multitool, today announced three new secure flash drives for travelers who want more than just your generic USB-powered storage key. The Slim and Slim Duo devices are outfitted with Victorinox's classic folding pocket knives, scissors, and nail files, but each also includes a USB flash drive, with up to 64GB of storage for the Slim and 128GB for the Slim Duo.

Both drives are waterproof and shock-resistant, available for purchase in a variety of bright colors (red, blue, orange, pink, green, silver), and also available in knifeless flight-friendly versions.

The Victorinox Secure SSD is the company's first foray into the solid-state market, and this tiny drive comes in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB capacities with a double USB and eSATA plug interface. A small 96x48-pixel monochrome LCD/e-ink screen on the side shows storage details and gives the option to personalize the text.

Stay tuned for details on pricing and availability.
