Swiss Military Pen

5, Aug 2006


The Swiss are highly regarded for their precision pen knives. And now they’re taking things one stage further by fitting 13 essential items into a precision pen!

Constructed using Aircraft Grade Alloy, this sleek bit of kit includes a flat screwdriver, hole puncher, steel file, short cutting blade, ear pick, nail remover, long cutting blade, tweezers, phillips screwdriver, steel fork, saw and a writing pen. (Kitchen sink not included).


The pen un-twists into three cylinders, each with storage slots to hold the various blades. The two knurled cylinder joints also contain tools on each side. Made out of a rugged yet lightweight aluminum alloy, the Swiss Military Pen is great for campers, hunters, do-it-yourselfers, repair people and gadget-levers.

The pen comes in plastic case with full operating instructions, its size is 14cm and the pen is refillable, but you’ll probably use the other functions lot more than to write something with this pen 😛

The price of the Swiss Military Pen is about $23.

The Bionic Wrench

23, Jul 2006


This tool is a remarkable patented hybrid of an adjustable wrench combined with the ease of use of a pair of pliers. The genius of attacking a bolt/nut on all 6 flat sides removes the stress and strain on the corners of the bolt. This coupled with the superior gripping action of the jaws allows the user to complete their work without the wrench slipping and damaging the bolt. The design of the Bionic Wrench multiplies your hand’s gripping force so you can more easily tighten/loosen bolts. You can develop ratchet-like speed by fully turning the Bionic Wrench, releasing the grip while still on the bolt, repositioning the wrench, and then re-tighten grip.


This product has been awarded the Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award as well as the prestigious Red Dot Award Best of the Best 2006 for pioneering design in a category (Tools). The Bionic Wrench has been designed and manufactured to exceed ANSI specifications and is made in the USA.
