I thought I read this is a real item, as a sort of showcase of that they can do.... useless of course, just try to find the screwdriver once everything is inside the knife.... then try to turn the damn thing to tighten that screw...... :lol:

It is pocket size, you just need the special Swiss-Army trousers.

Saw that for sale in a magazine for £500 or something ridiculous.

Not meaning to start a war here, but Gerber all the way!

Does it have a 5/32 allen? If so my kit will finally be complete! at a thousand bucks it will be one of the cheapest steadicam accessories that I own. Maybe I'll buy 2 since I try to have a backup of all my gear. It's the perfect gift for for the Steadi Op that has everything!!!
I hope it comes with a lanyard so that my AC can wear it around his neck!

It is simply a 'collectors only' item guys. That's all it is. It is not meant to be used.

No, every Swiss soldier will get one of those when completing the official duty... :P
I have mine stored in a separate pelicase.
