Designed by silversmithing legend Adrian Pallarols, the Leatherman Argentum Collection ($240-$40,000) takes the pocketable tool to new heights of insanity fashion and elegance. Crafted from 925 Argentine sterling silver and 18K yellow gold, these are tools you most definitely will think twice about using. [via]
Be prepared. Named Knife of the Year 2007 at the IWA International Knife Awards, the Victorinox Swiss Army Rescue Tool ($90) includes a phillips screwdriver, window breaker, crate opener, bottle opener, wire stripper, reamer, punch, (catch your breath) seatbelt cutter, key ring, tweezers, toothpick, nylon cord, luminescent Handles, and a disc saw for shatterproof glass.
This double-action camping/serial killer tool combines a compact axe and a lightweight knife with 3-inch blade that stores inside the axe handle. The Gerber Gator Combo Axe ($40) features "virtually indestructible" Polyamide construction with textured rubber for grip. There's also the Gerber Gator Combo Axe II ($50), which trades the knife for a small hand saw that's better for cutting fire wood/dismembering bodies.
