OK,
My only criticism would be about a knife (utility tool) wider than it is long, when deployed. Otherwise its a tool box.
YMMV

With only 85 tools I can hardly call that a "multi-use" item.
I would have liked to have seen a 120 pcs, 12 point, impact ratchet set, mini
chain saw, pry bar and some sort of thermal detonator.

At only 9" wide, they certainly could have made it a bit bigger to
accomodate the additional tools :biggrin:


No but in all seriousness..... what the hell. 85 freakin tools and you are
telling me I still can't do a darn thing with a robertson screw?!?!?!? GET WITH
THE PROGRAM!! That thing is freaking useless outside the USA.

Turk, Turk, Turk...
Robertson tool. We only see them screw heads on Japanese cars. You have to take those to the st/dealer to get them fixed.:albertein
I wish my Ruger Old Army used these screw heads as I can't seem to keep from buggering the heads on the straight slot screws as much as I fiddle with them.
When they start putting them on handgun scales, I'll be looking for them.
(actually, I have a small set [for my japanese car] but, I feel all dirty when I use them).

That's it. I am going to alter my plans of world domination. It would appear all I have to do is screw the whitehouse doors and windows shut with robertson screws.

That should hold off the combined US armed forces long enough for me to implement my economic campaign, distributing 'full strength' canadian beer and decriminalizing marijuana.

Door to door vacuum salesmen will be refitted with products you actually want and NEED. Cigarettes, booze and porn. So long girl-guide cookies. Come on, who's gonna say no to a kid with a wagon full of cigarettes and porn?

By phase three, I should be an established super power. Figure I can pick up some cheap nuclear warheads on Ebay. Once I train my all canadian Moose cavalry and outfit them with RPG's, they can patrol my palace. ... An Ice palace of course. Impervious to deep IR scan and difficult to paint for targeting.

And all a result of one Man ... and his screwdriver.
Repeat after me,
..... This is my screwdriver
There are many like it but this one is mine.
:biggrin:

cheers.

Oh, and Seeker,
Golf club face cleaner is REALLY important. Be worth making your caddy carry that thing around for that alone.

Is it me or what? The only way I would get one is if they added a finger with a strong nail. Seems when ever they go over 4 tools there is always something I can't open w/o breaking a nail ! and YES I am a man , last time I checked SS :captain:

Hey!
That's right! My fingernails suck! Especially when they are wet or cold.
Some kind of estrogen death ray from somewhere? I have to open my pocket knife with my P-38 (can opener) half the time.

Turk (I just cut myself on my freshly sharpened hatchet, Thank you very much!) is a minor threat to world peace at this time, but deserves watching for the emergence of the robertson bit as a signal of the coming apocalypse. :bike: apocalipso? The mind staggers...(might be the single malt)

Now that is a knife. I bet old Crocodile Dundee already has one and is just waiting for the next mugger.

Moose cavalry LOL...

Once I arced 500 volts D.C. through my thumbnail (repairing a radio - 31E) and burnt a hole clear through it.

After that for around 3 years I had to cut my nails every day. The thumb nail grew so fast that the hole which extended to the base of the nail, was gone in a week. My nails got thin.

Now, after many years I only have to cut my nails weekly, and while thicker they're still not very strong. That's why you'll never see me carrying a swiss army knife.

--Also I was severely disallusioned and emotionally scarred when McGuiver (a strong proponent of the swiss army knife) made gernades out of pinecones and sap. My world collapsed.....If you can't trust t.v. who can you trust?

An Ice Palace? Deep IR scan? You are apparently a Star-Trek fan!:biggrin:

I did see something that was missing after putting up our Christmas Tree last night with the kids.

"A sliver of broken Christmas Tree Ornament in the Foot Remover"

Not sure that a standard hook remover would do the trick. Yup, definately a handy tool to have when your barefoot putting up the tree with the kids. Something that could be used once a year, twice a year if you include taking the tree down too (however, the kids usually want no part of that). Probably would be used more than some of those other 85.
