The Mother Of All Swiss Army Knives (7 pictures)

Made in Germany in 1880 for JS Holler & Co’s cutlery store in New York City, the beautifully crafted knife predates the Swiss Army knife by 11 years.

This incredible multi-tool knife boasts everything from a piano tuner to a .22-caliber revolver. 

The accessory features a serrated blade, two dagger blades, several different types of shears and scissors, a corkscrew, two saws, a lancet, button hook, cigar cutter, tuning fork, pens and a mechanical pencil, mirror, straight razor, a cheese fork and a butter knife.

The device, owned by the Smithsonian Institution, is on display at the Buffalo Bill Centre of the West in Wyoming, US.
