The whole Scout troop can use it at once

Every now and then someone who's read the stuff I wrote about Swiss Army knives writes to make sure I know about the ridiculous Victorinox super-knives, the SwissChamp XLT (which is just about still usable) and SwissChamp XXLT (which is really just a showpiece, though every now and then you find one on sale for a surprisingly reasonable price because some store accidentally got ten in, thinking they were products a human hand could actually hold).

Wenger, the now-wholly-owned-by-Victorinox second manufacturer of "genuine" Swiss Army knives, would appear to now have one-upped Victorinox in the monster-knife stakes, with...

Wenger Giant

...the Giant.

It's only a thousand dollars if you buy online!

(I'm pretty sure that one of those big plastic shop-window Swiss Army knives with the motorised blades that slowly go in and out will cost you rather less than the Giant, and be just as useful.)

    If it were modular - as in you could selectively remove sections with reasonable effort - I could see possibilities. Otherwise it looks like something you would leave on the ground, noting he label: "face this side toward enemy"

    I know it's meant to be for having and not using, but... damn.

    I find that a combination of my Swiss Army Cybertool 41 and my Leatherman Charge TTi are all that I need. But still... I could go for that.

    what the hell is the antenna for?

    It's for the seven-inch widescreen LCD TV on the other side of the knife, silly!

    Actually, I initially thought it was a telescopic magnetic pick-up tool, but no - it's a telescopic pointer.

    The Giant also has a laser pointer, of course!

    Ye gods.

    I'll stick with the Leatherman, methinks. Even though it doesn't have a golf club face cleaner, a laboratory key or a part to adjust gunsights, somehow I've managed to survive this long in civilisation with it.

    Ummm, where's the USB Drive?
