The Wenger Giant Swiss Army Knife is probably one product that you shouldn’t try to carry onto your next flight to Cuba. It’s not just that the security people will think you’re bat brained insane. It’s also the problem of what to do with your sagging empty pocket once they’ve confiscated the thing and are marching you off to an appointment with a surgical rubber glove. Nope, far better to leave it at home with grandma and the ten Rottweiller pups. £499.95.
An ideal gift for the gadget collector with (almost) everything, the Wenger features a wide range of handy tools, and even more that you’ll probably never use. But that’s the fun of it. There are seven blades, three types of pliers and seemingly countless screwdrivers, saws and wrenches. There’s even a battery operated torch and a laser pointer with a 300ft range. Oh, did we also mention the thingy that repairs golf divots and the doodah that magnifies mineral crystals? Or how about the tyre-tread gauge, signal whistle and cigar-cutter?
