The $1680 Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife

This is definitely not the Swiss Army knife to carry on the trail. I saw this and my jaw dropped 12".

That has to be a POS retail display item on 04/05/2008 10:40:56 MDT Print View

I'd guess it is supposed to show all the tools offered.

MacGyver might carry that with him while hiking. But he always was a tool!

Ah. I'm on fire this morning.

I was wondering if this includes retractable piano wire to choke the marketing team with. That requires its own pack/sling. It won't even fit into a sheath on the belt without hitting doorknobs and small children.... hey, wait. Now there's an idea!

Unbelievable, the knife is for real.

http://www.wengerna.com/browse/product.jsp?prod_id=1260&cat_id=1&sub_cat_id=23

It retails for $1400.

85 Implements
110 Functions

It shows breaking a Guiness World Record (is that the same maker of the beer, I wonder )?

And it has a much larger image of the knife to click on too.

Where is that snare drum rimshot sound when you need it?

That's real!? I thought for sure it was a joke.

So does it have a cell phone in there? And where is the pen style flare launcher?!
