Why this is nothing short of astonishing. This is the Wenger 16999. It is, as you can see, a giant Swiss Army Knife. In fact, this may be the most epic and complete multi-tool in the history of multi-tools. Actually, it may not be a multi-tool at all. It could be a Decepticon. Or something like that anyway. Wenger Knives, now a part of Victorinox, pulled off a coup with this bad boy!
Wenger is an online retailer focusing primarily on luggage, watches, and epic utility knives built for every conceivable contingency in mind.
It is the only terrestrial tool (that we know of) that can repair Dr. Who’s sonic screwdriver.

Wenger 16999 Ratings
Some of the low ratings are troubling, but the favorable reviews far outweigh them. Has an example:
“Amitiel” says, Surprising.
“As soon as I found out how much my husband spent on this, I left him. Bad move. It represented him at the divorce hearing. I now pay $10,000 a month in alimony.”
G. McKee Opines, Swiss Army Tripe!
“Awful! The corkscrew attachment is at the extreme edge of the tool, meaning that whenever I open a bottle of wine (3-5 times of an evening) I have to wildly swing the entire tool around causeing utter havoc. Last time I uncorked a bottle I performed minor surgery on my wife who was standing in the next room. I also started a small fire, caught a rabbit in a snare and managed to signal the coast guard that I was in danger. And when I came to remove the cork I jerked upwardsley and as I did so I removed a stone from a horses shoe and shaped some nearby branches Into rudimentary defensive spears. Every new bottle brings more elaborate shenanigans into our lives. Some have suggested I stop drinking corked wine but that is just the talk of a psychopath. I shall be returning this for a full refund and say the only people with use for this tool are Boy Scouts with exceptionally long pockets.”
Countering this are such comments as,
“A Fan,” Surprising Results
“I tried to file my nails, but in the process, I accidentally fixed a small engine that was nearby. Which was nice.”

Unfortunately, none of those reviews was a “Verified Purchase Review.” Which is strange, really.
In any case, here’s something to consider if you need a Fathers Day gift idea. Or everything required to conquer a small Latin American country.
