The Swiss Army Knife Ancestor:
a multi-tool created by John S. Holler in Germany sometime around 1880. The knife predates the Swiss Army Knife, which started production about a decade later in 1890.
The multi-tool has 100 functions, including every type of blade imaginable. It has a serrated blade, dagger blades, shears, scissors, an auger, a corkscrew, saws, a lancet, button hook, cigar cutter, pens and pencils, mirror, and a straight razor.
You can even use this tool to tune a piano, as it has a piano tuner built in.
It has a fully functioning .22 caliber five-shot revolver.
