  ‘Mother of all Swiss Army knives,’ this 19th century multi-tool has it all, including a .22 revolver   :facepalm:

 
 
 

  Bet Chako does not have one of these - yet.  :rofl:

Those are Salesman Knives.  The idea is that a travelling salesman would have a knife with every doodad the company offered on it, and people would pick and choose what they liked best and the salesman would send the company a letter with the order and move on to the next town.  A while later the person's knife would arrive in the mail.

At least, that is the story I have heard.  I can't say with 100% certainty that it is accurate, but that is what I'd heard.

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

WIth some, yes. Another story I've heard is that a cutler's apprentice had to build one of these in order to become a master cutler. Sort of like a final exam.
