Butterfly knife multitool

ThinkGeek sells a $13 stainless steel Butterfly Knife Multitool with a flat-head screwdriver, hex-head wrenches, wire stripper, and bottle opener. It's great for practicing your wrist-action without slicing off your fingers, but still might get you shot if a trigger-happy cop sees you produce it from your pocket during a tense standoff.

Sure, you could keep a multi tool on your belt and be the guy that everyone turns to when they need to open a bottle, strip a wire, saw through something, tighten a screw, or turn a hex-head. Or you could be that exact same person but with added flair! Rush to anyone's aid, flip out your Butterfly Knife Styled Multi Tool, pull off some sweet butterfly knife moves, and save the day. Dang, it feels good to be a hero.

This stainless-steel multi tool features a small saw, flat-head screwdriver, two hex-head wrenches, a wire stripper, and a bottle opener (for when you finally get thirsty Fixing All The Things). The butterfly portion of the tool is styled exactly as you'd think it would be and features a metal clasp to keep you from accidentally multi tooling things in your pocket.

  2. I'm with you on the general knife crime panic front, although a balisong is primarily a weapon so I think in the instance of that particular item it's a reasonable position. A practical weapon that can be useful to have around sure, but you can also open champagne with a sabre, without diminishing its weapon-hood. I'm not really a fan of 'tactical' pens either, though that is the opposite - taking a useful everyday object and sticking klingon spikes on it until it is a weapon that bleeds ink.
