For years I’ve carried a 1 gig USB drive on my keychain because you just never know when you might need a little storage. It appears the new Swiss Army Duo 2x is taking that just a touch further with an available 128 gig onboard their newest blade. You’ve probably seen it at trade shows, and it’ll surely appear on the most elegant of desktops very soon — but not without cost.
This hot new storage draped in Victorinox aluminum with a crossed shield will run you $523 retail. That’s not a misprint; that’s what they want for it. It’s true that this knife — a knife in much the same way a Harley Davidson T-shirt will do 70 on the freeway — is sexy and cool, but you can buy some low-to-mid-range laptops for that. We love these badass looking blades, but I don’t think we’ve consumed quite that much kool-aid just yet.
There is also a $40, single-stick, 4-gig version for sane people who want to spend too much on data storage.
