Gadget geekery deluxe

I can't quite comprehend the sport of having a more gadget-laden knife than the next person, but I have known some competitors in my day. For them, the new Giant Swiss Army knife (Call that a knife?, Andrew Martin, Guardian Unlimited, Dec. 6, 2006) ought to send rivals whimpering into a corner, acknowledging defeat. Or down on the floor laughing. I'm not sure which. :)

My teenage son was just telling me about this the other day! Too funny.

Barb, I'm still waiting for my knife aficiondos to weigh in and tell me if this is a home run or if, in their expert opinion, it's overshot its headlights and is therefore a foul. I think it's great fun, either way.

Of course, I harbor a fondness for engineer types... :)

My sons would have loved something like this when they were younger...wait...I think they'd still love it, especially my oldest. Too bad I already have all their Christmas gifts bought.
