Multitools have always...

...been cool. Today there are multitools to fit pretty much any budget. is a good place to find general information on many of the tools currently on the market. But how about "Back in the day"?

Take a look at this super cool tool from the 1700's:

Combination Flintlock Knife-Pistol, Closed

It is a combination flintlock knife/pistol. I found this great tool in the latest auction catalog from Greg Martin Auctions.

Here is a look with the knife open:
