The Pocket Toolbox

If necessity is the Mother of invention, I came across a product today that qualifies for the inbred category. Since I can remember, there has been a certain knife manufacturing company that prides itself on having just about everything conceivable tool built into a pocket knife. Good marketing, yes. Practical, no. Having a common screwdriver, philipshead screwdriver, three knife blades, metal file, hacksaw, bottle opener, toothpick, tweezers, scratch awl, corkscrew, spoon, fork and wood saw(and whatever else that somehow fits in there), has far surpassed any real world "in the field" user friendliness. If I really needed those tools with me all the time, I'd just drive a van.
