Product Description

The American Army has its bunker-busters and fuel-air devices. The British Army has the Challenger 2 on the ground and the Typhoon for air cover. The Swiss Army has the Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife, a weapon of Mass... umm... Mass... err... A Weapon of Mass. In all our years of lab testing the world's most inventive devices, there's little we haven't seen, haven't destroyed and haven't taken home to try out on our little brothers. And then there came this titan. This behemoth. This ?500 piece of precision Swiss engineering that makes that posh watch of yours look like mere bagatelle. Permit us to explain. The Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife - note the use of the word 'Giant' - has no fewer than 85 implements capable of performing over 100 separate functions, from scaling fish to fixing bicycles. All of which makes it impossibly useful. Want a laser flashlight? No problem. Torch? Can do. Universal Wrench? Yup. Golf divot repair tool? Si. Double-cut wood saw? Uh-huh. And so it goes. On and on and on and on. There's almost no indoor our outdoor emergency which could not be tackled with this comprehensive if somewhat unwieldy device. But who cares? For even if all it does is sit ceremonially on your mantelpiece next to a bar of Toblerone and a signed photo of Swiss Toni as a tribute to all things Swiss, you will have achieved greatness, my son.

I'd been looking for a £600 lump of metal to weigh my jeans down for a while. This does the trick perfectly!

A few of the features let it down a little:

The motorbike function gets appalling miles to the gallon.
The quantum teleporter is decidedly inaccurate. I set it for Paris and ended up just south of Chorley.
The trombone needs tuning every time you get it out.
The tent is incomplete and collapsed twice on me last week.
The home brewery kit works, and the beer tastes fine. The wine making kit however, is a little too robust for a merlot.
The satellite dish attachment struggles to connect to the projector.
Changing the volume on the record player is awkward, and the DJ booth isn't nearly big enough to fit more than 3 people in.
The paper shredder can't manage a full book without breaking.
Siri is very unreliable.
The oil dispenser is jammed shut.
The sword is cursed.
And the 12,000 piece jigsaw is missing a piece.

It's also far too easy to get the tools confused. I was going for a small picnic spoon, and accidentally bazooka'd my fruit loops.

And to top it all off, since I updated it to iOS7, it's been running slowly and my cat won't go near it.

Otherwise great!

Very impressed. But both cars are blocked in our drive now. Have had to order 2 cranes to move it onto the lawn.

On the whole, this is an excellent tool and has helped on many routine tasks around the house, including eavesdropping on GCHQ, performing a minor appendectomy on the dog, and serving as a temporary RSJ when a simple DIY project to remove what I thought was a non-structural wall went awry. It also paid for itself very quickly after I heated it up and inserted it briskly into the rear end of the 100:1 outsider for the 3:15 at Epsom. This was much more successful than my first attempt on the 2:30 when I had neglected to fold away the spiky bits first.

My only criticism is that the battery life is a little disappointing, which means that the night-vision feature only lasts a few hours. This caused no end of trouble the other evening when I was over the Alps in the built-in microlight waiting for permission to land at Geneva. Luckily the hand-cranked generator tool was sufficient to illuminate the (rather basic!) flight instrumentation, and permitted a largely successful landing using the (optional extra) ILS feature.

Overall, it is an excellent all-purpose tool. It is quite heavy and the anti-gravity device is a little temperamental, so it is always worth arming the auto-inflation safety feature if you are in the vicinity of deep water. I would have given it 5* but couldn't find the tool for removing boy scouts from horses' hooves. Incidentally you can quickly recoup the purchase price by using the time-travel feature to enhance your investment decisions.

I bought it to repair my folding bike, but it is bigger than my folding bike. Which got me thinking, why didn't they add a bike to it in the first place?

I've got a fetish for knives, so when I saw this I just knew I had to have it. Following the quick sale of my dear old mother's new plasma TV, I ordered one of these and I have to say it just does not disappoint. It is amazing. I call it the 'Beast'. It's a bit difficult to hold when slicing through a digit or two but you can really feel the quality. Damage infliction is first rate and you'll be surprised how deft you become with handling it, time and time again. Quite simply, this has got to be the best blade on the market for an all-rounder. You can even peel potatoes with it.

First impression, it's like a small Swiss Army knife that got a little out of hand, in fact, it requires a vehicle of it's own.

What caught my eye when perusing the specifications of this product was the promise of an all-purpose wench. Alas, my old eyes were fooled by the small print.
