New Swiss Army knife is one for the books.
A 1.4-kilogram Swiss Army knife will be included in the Guinness Book of Records for 2008--taking the title of "most functions on a penknife" with its 85 tools and some 110 uses.
Along with dozens of blades and utensils commonly associated with the brand, the oversized knife also features a flashlight, toothpick, laser pointer, and fish scaler.
Its size, at 22 centimetres long, doesn't seem to have discouraged sales. Swiss manufacturer Wenger says 450 were sold in its first year despite a SFr 1,570 price tag.
