    Amazing, as always, Steeley!

    That multi-tool really makes you think. What amazes me is that even then, they still "pretty it up" with the detailing. Same goes for the bronze pots. The handles amazed me, but not quite as much as the precision and skill of the whole piece!

    This thread just made me excited to use my SAK, today, at work.

    Actually the detailing was what struck me most as well. I figured cooking pots for the military would be pretty rudimentary and unadorned, if not still very sturdy. But they are beautiful. Also that multi-tool is pretty interesting, though I can't imagine using it would be very convenient.
