   Most functions on a penknife-world record set by Wenger knife

[Nov 22]ORANGEBURG, N.Y.--A Swiss Army knife that weighs nearly three pounds has
set the world record for having most functions on a penknife-the latest version has 87 tools and at least 115 uses.

   Wenger North America, the company that makes the multi-purpose tool, has come out with a model so unique it's been listed in the record books as the implement that has the "most functions on a penknife."

   "Basically, they took every implement they ever put in a Swiss Army knife and combined them in this one piece," said company spokeswoman Jennifer Voss.

   The knife includes a dozen screwdrivers including one specifically for gun sights, fish scaler, laser pointer, magnifier, 4 grafting blades for the gardener, a cuticle pusher, toothpick, nail file, key ring, shoe spike adjuster and a flashlight.
    The knife boasts 87 tools and more than 110 different uses. Among them: cleaning your cuticles, measuring a tire tread, spiffing up a golf club, adjusting a bicycle spoke, turning a screw, acting as a key ring, scaling a fish, working as a magnifying glass, grafting plants for gardeners or being employed as a toothpick - just to name a few. It also has a flashlight, a laser pointer, a golf shoe spike wrench (don't ask), and special screwdrivers made specifically to adjust gunsights.

   For the extremely avid gardener, there are four different blades for grafting one plant onto another: the grafting blade with a hooked end, the grafting blade with a narrow belly, the standard grafting blade without a belly and the narrow grafting blade without a belly. The "belly" is a bulge along the blade, said Wenger spokesman Dennis Piretra.

   The knife is manufactured in Delemont, Switzerland by Wenger.
    It measures 8.75 x 3.25 inches, weighs almost three pounds, and at $1,200, it's pretty much a collector's item, but 450 have been sold in its first year, Voss said.
