  Add a flame thrower and you can even do a stir-fry on it!

It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

For £133? I'd rather have a spade with saw etc duct taped to it...

Yes that's one they forgot, frying pan!

 I watched the whole video, very interesting, I love the way it turns into a tent.

I can understand Andyn's point but many may decide that it's  grappling hook feature is a must-have and splash out. It could be vital equipment down under for all their bushtuckering/dunnydigging  an XXXXrefreshment breaks etc. In dear Old Blighty it may double as a rain hat/ flood ditching tool....... it's a versatile piece of designer kit with a huge  potential world wide market. I hope prices will fall in the near future when it's 'cloned' by 'guess who'?  %)

I could'nt get the video to run.    (Howair ladz hoy iz thuh lingk man.  {:-{ )

This is a Chinese item, and so I think a clone is innevitable.
Originals can be purchased on the Chinese web auction site taobao.com. There is reference to this in the Q&A section on the ebay page quoted above, it mentions the taobao price is about 38. I think I have seen them at my local market (in China) as well.

If you had the edge sharp enough to do what they show, you would cut your fingers off doing some of the other stuff.
I will wait untill they show up in the dollar store.

I wonder if the knife he's showing is in fact the one in the case.

If you read this

https://www.askthe.police.uk/content/Q337.htm

blades upto 3 inches on folding pocket knives are OK, mines about 2.5 inches :police: <*< :police: >:-o

I laughed when i read that locking knives aren't allowed on your person.

Friction-lock knives are unsafe because they can fold up without warning.  I wouldn't use one for that exact purpose. 

I bet after a few tender people hurt themselves that way, there will be a big inquest into 'unsafe knives'.   %%

Can I still call a spade a spade....

 or is it now a multi function tool.

I wouldn't want to bury granny under the patio just using that looks like too much hard work, especially at the speed those soldiers were working at  <:(
