The Swiss Army Knife Continues To Add To Its Skillset

By Andrew Liszewski

If you thought Swiss Army knives were only good for opening boxes, filing your nails or uncorking a wine bottle, you’d only be partly right. There’s a host of other tools and accessories you can get that I’ve quite frankly never found a use for, like say… a digital altimeter. A small LCD integrated into the side of the knife shows your current altitude from -300 feet to +15,000 feet. And if you’re curious as to how cold it gets at those altitudes, the knife’s also got a digital thermometer with a less impressive temperature range of 0 to 100 fahrenheit.

The Swiss Army Altimeter is available from the Swiss Outpost, with all of the features you see sticking out, for $115.

    Once it gets below 0 or above 100, I don't think it matters what the actual temp is. It's either freeze your a$$ off cold or underwear sweat hot.

    I'm assuming this feature is for private pilots as I'm sure the TSA guy at the security checkpoint is going to decide you can take this knife on the plane.
