You mean this one?  I was looking at one a while back... when/if I get one I'll let you know.  Maybe someone else with one will post their thoughts on it?

Yeah, me too- kinda reminds me of the tools laid out on a mad scientist's operating table in an old sci fi movie!  It's alive! :D

Seriously, I found one on eBay for about $18 and was going to buy it until the guy quoted me over $20 shipping from the US!  For that kind of shipping money it better be delivered by a Victoria Secret model!

Man, if I was a proctologist I'd have to have one of those in my office just to scare the hell out of people!

Hi, my name is Guillermo and this is my first post on this forum which by the way I think is great.

I read, don't remember where, that this kind of tool has been around for quite sometime, 100 years aprox, but I haven't found more information about it. I remember watching this tool on my father's toolbox maybe 20 years ago, it was weird and really did not pay attention, next time I visit him I'll try to see if he stiil has it.

I saw a different version of the harp tool on www.todocoleccion.net (Spain), it looks old.

Gracias Guillermo and welcome to Multitool.org!

That looks like a pretty neat tool there, at least from a collector point of view.  It's funny that so many folks think that these tools are all new, but as J-sews can attest to, they have been around since I think sometime in the 1800's in one form or another.  All that's happening now is that numerous companies are trying to re-invent them to take advantage of the current market for them.

Now if I could find a pre- 1930's version of the LM Crunch I'll be set!

Welcome to Multitool.org geoemt!
Yes, the Spyderco Byrd Harp is just the latest version of an idea that's been around for a long time. The oldest one I've seen had an 1883 English patent date. Most of the old examples have a corkscrew, with anywhere from one to ten blades.

Man, check out those prices! Multi tool collectors may be crazy at times, but corkscrew collectors are certifiable lunatics!

Hehe... I think the next time I've got $800 laying around... I'm investing in a corkscrew.
