Tell a friend the ideal Swiss Army knife

Victorinox Swiss Army knife with SwissMemory 1GB USB drive What’s in your ideal Swiss Army knife? Along the lines of the ultimate house, I designed my own ultimate pocket tool. My Swiss Army knife would include the usual:
  • knife, of course
  • nail clipper
  • nail file
  • scissors
  • screwdriver (both flat and Phillips heads)
  • can opener
  • corkscrew
  • toothpick
  • tweezers
  • magnifying glass

as well as some high-tech mini-gadgets:

  • audio player (which doubles as USB storage)
  • alarm clock/timer/stopwatch
  • camera
  • phone
  • basic PDA with calendar, contacts and notes functions
  • walkie-talkie
  • wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity
  • transistor radio
  • rechargeable battery

and other useful things:

  • flashlight
  • compact but strong detachable padlock
  • measuring tape
  • coin holder
  • pen
  • lip balm
  • mirror
  • pill case
  • toothbrush
  • sewing kit

Yeah, I realize this would probably make an awfully large tool, perhaps too big to fit into one’s pocket — but it’s a fun fantasy. In the meantime, however, we can content ourselves with the Victorinox Swiss Army knife with SwissMemory 1GB USB drive.

    My perfect Swiss Army Knife would probably my laptop with my iPod, PSP and actual Swiss Army Knife all taped together. Oh yeah, throw my cell phone into the mix. I’d like all that functionality in the size of a knife. Impossible? Yes. But I can dream, can’t I?

    Well, why not add a piano while you’re at it? ;-)

    Actually, for me it would be a guitar!
