“Giant Knife Version 1.0″ From Wenger

swiss army knife giant version 1.0

By David Ponce

One day, the good folk at Wenger (makers of the Swiss Army Knife) got together and got drunk. In their drunken stupor, somone’s joke magically turned into a good idea: “Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if we made a new knife with ALL the tools we’ve ever put on a knife??”

Well, yeah, it’s funny, and it looks like what you see on that picture. It’s called “Giant Knife Version 1.0″, and includes 85 tools. It weighs 2 pounds, 11 ounces and measures 8.75 inches. Some of the tools include a cigar cutter, a bicycle chain rivet setter and a golf divot repair tool. Oh, and tweezers and a toothpick.

Now, don’t expect to find this baby at any retail store. You have to call the company at 800-431-2996 to order your own knife. And expect your credit card to be dinged a cool $1,200.

    Actually, Victorinox (victorinox.ch) is the original maker of the swiss army knife. They bought Wenger last year (2005).

    Actually, I DID see one of these in a retail store,
    in Interlaken, Switzerland.
    (It was the “Swiss Army Knife Store” or something like that, on the main drag).

    I didn’t buy it.

    I did buy a Traveller Lite from them though.
    They were very nice and engraved not only the
    knife I purchased, but another one I had with me
    at no extra charge.

    Is this for real? I’m a pocket knife junkie, but this is just overkill…
