    Honestly, is that REALLY practical?

    If I were rich and a little more of a goof than I am, I would buy that and display it somewhere in my house or office. Probably office. --Or I'd take it camping as a joke.

    There's no pen on there. I guess they quit making swiss army knives with pens. Now I feel even worse about not having my little green swiss army knife with a pen anymore. If somebody said I could have either this new stupid one or my old little green one with pen, i'd definitely take the latter:( :bawl:

    LMAO. I love ThinkGeek. They always have ridiculous products that no one would ever buy. I wonder if they ever have/will sell one.
    I cant ever see using that think.. it would definitely take two hands. Even the othe giant Swiss Army Knife they make is entirely too large to effectively wield with one hand.

    If I had $800 to blow, I'd buy it.

    And yes, I'd use it on a key ring :D

  8. Oh man! I'd just decided that this was the tool for me, and then I noticed that it didn't have a truing-stand or a floor-pump…

    …bah! useless piece of junk! :rolleyes:

    A 2lb key ring? At least you'd always know which pocket they were in.

    They still make them. I bought one from Sports Authority about three weeks ago. It also has a red LED on it.

    True story: I remember reading back in the 80s about this throat surgeon who happened to be on an airplane when somebody got their windpipe jammed with something that wouldn't dislodge, so he pulled out his Swiss Army knife and performed an emergency tracheotomy. He reported this story to Wenger, and they replied that it was too bad his knife wasn't the one that included a genuine tracheotomy blade, which they had just produced as a limited edition for a throat surgeons' convention.

    +1 however to Benchmade being more practical, if less entertaining.
  13. That's pretty cool. My dad's an anesthesiologist and actually did the same thing to save an elderley woman who was choking on a scallop at a restaurant in New York. It was her birthday too and thanks to my pops, she survived it. Makes me real proud of him.

    Back on track, that thing is pretty cool. I'd probably buy it and put it in a display case.

    Yeah, that knife definitely has some instruments that I've seen my dentist use on me.
  15. I prefer my Leatherman Supertool. The thing has been with my 10 years now. I've thought of upgrading, but it just kicks too much butt to replace

    Let's be honest: it's just if you were rich, isn't it?
