Wow, almost usable that way. No, I can't cut into this piece of art. I might end up framing it for posterity.

But just noticed that yours has an inch ruler marking - mine don't. (Nor is it straight so maybe just as well).

Piece of Sheet Metal® has an almost true ring to it...  :D

Thatat's a much better design RP -You could possibly even use those tools

Did you do this in real life or is it photoshopped!!

However as a cyclist - I love the original design

It seems the design brief for this was to create a multitool with as many unusable tools as possible
And I think this MT belongs on the wall as a decorative piece not in the saddle bag.

The website has it down as having wire cutters ??? How does that work??
Apparently the circle in the wheel is a signal mirror
And what is the loop around the back wheel ???

The wire cutters work as well as everything else on this tool.  :D

I'm most amazed that the wheel circle is almost round. Maybe a production fault? The center does have a mirror finish on both sides. I guess you can signal to more than one party at once..  ::)

The I think the loop around the wheel is to hang it onto something? Almost like a pocket clip, except you don't want that pokey thing in your pocket.

Yes, it belongs on the wall. It is an artistic and ironic comment on the often less-than-optimal one piece of sheet multi-tools that flows the market. That it isn't actually meant as that, and even sold as a multi-tool, just makes it all the much better.  :cheers:

I actually have to thank ReamerPunch for making me aware such a thing actually existed.  :tu:

Thanks! I haven't gotten my design into production yet.  :D
No photoshop, just microsoft paint. I don't have one of these tools, I just saw it on ebay, and thought it was too good not to post here.
Not sure about wire cutters, but the loop is most likely to hang it on a belt loop. Many long one-piece tools have something like that.
Why anyone would want this thing on them is a mystery, though.

Off course! It's an art piece (of sheet metal®)!
A brilliant parody of impracticality.  :hatsoff:

Actually, the title's question begs for a somewhat different answer :whistle: but this here being a family friendly forum I won't say it  :salute:

And here I was naivly thinking that the screwdriver placement on that cycle tool was a rare case of incredibly impractical design...  :facepalm: Rather seems like their trademark at this point.

It seems like they have a Random OPT Generator. I mean come on. The Phillips on the trout could have gone in at least five better spots.

If they ever make a male human I think I know where they will put it...  :D

(If the fish is anywhere to go by it will be the stomach.. What did you think?  :D)

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Just got myself one...



It's a thing of beauty! ::)

Why I actually got it, is to put a magnet on it and make a fridge magnet out of it :D

Anyhow, a thought occurred to me... You know how El Cheapo bikes are sometimes called
BSO's (Bike Shaped Objects)? I think this one is a TSO (Tool Shaped Object) meant to be
used on the BSO's!  :pok:  :P

I'll be framing mine :) After all, some say the definition of art is that it is useless...

Just have to decide how big the frame needs to be to do it justice.

Is that a bottle opener at the back end of wing? Or is that just wishful thinking for another one to frame?  :facepalm:
