The Craziest Multi-Tool Ever Made Has 100 Blades And A .22-Caliber Five-Shot Revolver

This multi-tool is without a doubt the Mother of all Swiss Army knives.

This crazy and incredibly complicated multi-tool was made in Solingen, Germany, around the early 1880’s for J. S. Holler & Co.’s cutlery store in New York City.

And when I mean multiple blades, I mean 100 blades, and that’s not even the craziest part.

According to the National Museum Of American History, “It includes pocket knife blades of every style imaginable, a serrated blade, two dagger blades, several different types of shears and scissors, an auger, a corkscrew, two saws, a lancet, button hook, cigar cutter, tuning fork, pens and mechanical pencils, mirror, straight razor, and a functional .22-caliber five-shot pinfire revolver.

I mean seriously, imagine trying to find the right type of tool or knife. LOL! The knife is currently housed at the National Museum of American History in New York City. However, the knife is currently not on display.

If you thought this was cool check out a rare look inside the Specimen Collections at the Museum Of Natural History!
