Dude, it's called .m4v, not mp3. :cool:

No, but it has a laser pointer! These are actually for sale for a mere $1200.

You wouldn't go messing with the Swiss Army if they were all packing one of those, would you? :p

Does it have that little pointy thing for getting stones out of horses hooves? Very useful.

Doesn't the definition of knife mean to have one blade?

I'm not sure if this thing even has that, amongst all the other 'handy' tools is posseses.

And I'm sorry, how big would your pocket be for this Swiss Army Knife? It would be so heavy it probably comes in its own case, or fixed onto a counter top - not exactly the design we're used to.

Sorry, I find it pointless. But someone would buy it..

Sorry, I find it pointless. But someone would buy it..Although I can't say this with 100% certainty, I'd suspect this is a model made especially for retailers for display purposes – I doubt there is any intention to actually market or sell such a knife.

Good thinking Batman, but iMeowbot said these were for sale, $1200? :confused:

Edit: or was that sarcasm? $1200 is veeery expensive for what it is, but.. well, you know people..

Here's the list of included tools (http://www.popsci.com/popsci/whatsnew/306bf29f7c14d010vgnvcm1000004eecbccdrcrd.html), and ordering information!

Fair dues – I misread iMeowbot's post and thought that the laser pointery bit was available for $1,200 (I know, I know... :o), but yes it does indeed seem you can be the proud owner of such a device! Your horse's hooves need never be clogged again...

£1,200, eh? With the excellent $-£ exchange rate at the moment, maybe I ought to invest in one... ;)

that thing must come with a quick reference guide to show where each gadget is on the freaking thing. Or it will take hours to find the bottle opener:)

Mehhh. I've always been a Leatherman type of guy. Tooth picks and fecking magnifying glasses. Aye, whatever.

Tooth picks and fecking magnifying glasses. Aye, whatever.I must admit I'm a little lost on the need for two keyrings on the bloody thing. No sign of the fabled horse hoof destoner, though :(

If you were just cutting something simple, wouldn't it be way too bulky to use with such a small blade?
