Making Musical Melodies With the $2,150, 87-Tool Swiss Army Knife

The world's largest Swiss Army Knife recently got a little more useful. Known for its 87 implements and 141 uses, Wenger's Giant Knife slices, dices, opens bottles and cans, strips wires, loosens nuts and screws, and performs all kinds of other handy tasks. And it also makes music. Check it out:

Survivalist Jewelry: Swiss Army Necklace

For years, Swiss Army knives have been the ultimate go-to/back-up multi-tools. But that weight and bulge in your pocket really makes Swiss Army knives something that you need to purposefully pack. You probably have one on hiking and camping trips, but what if you suddenly have to strip some wire or cut some rope in the middle of your office? You're probably SOL, that's what. Unless, of course, you buy yourself a piece of Wenger's...

Swiss Army Gets Big Woody

  There's only so many tools that you can add to a Swiss Army knife. After nearly 130 years in the biz, Wenger and Victorinox are starting to run short on ideas. Sure new things like flash drives and garage door openers have provided a modern boost, but there are still only so many gadgets to add. And if the $1,400, 87-implement Wenger kitchen sink doesn't have it, it's probably not worth adding. Instead of...

I'm not sure if this camper has anything over other campers on the market outside of a...

Swiss Army Camp Stoves?

Out of the two Swiss Army discoveries I've made this week, cologne and ultralight camping stove, I would have hoped for the former to be fake and the latter to be real. An ultralight camping stove-- that's something that the Swiss Army could actually use in a practical way. Unfortunately, the Swiss Army stove is merely a concept designed by Ryan Cavenagh, while the cologne is the real deal. Regardless, this concept stove appears to...

Smell Swiss-Army Fresh

  Not all that long ago, we featured a post on Swiss Army shoes made by Wenger. Not to be outdone, the other Swiss Army manufacturer Victorinox has recently come out with its own form of diversification: a cologne called Swiss Unlimited. Ever wonder what those feather-hatted Swiss Alpine Guides smell like? Apparently, "Swiss essence with notes of wooded silver fur, alpine herbs and absinthe". Since that probably isn't rendering much of a tingle in the ol'...

Limited Edition Swiss Army® Knives (In Girlie Colors!)

Brookstone is offering these limited edition Swiss Army® knives ($25) in four juicy colors--plus ho-hum silver. Perfect for the ladies in your life--or guys with style--this holiday season. What I particularly like about this design is that it has a durable metal case, not one of those plastic jobs that have a tendency to crack and then fall off after you drop it once.
