Price is good compared to amazon, however I cannot imagine what you could use this for other than a bottle/can opener?

I do a lot of camping and walking and thought it the sort of lightweight thing that's handy to have if something breaks, is forgotten or lost.
I guess it could be a bit of a conversation piece too. Sort of thing you might pull out at a barbecue to take the top off a Bud.
Who knows, could save someone's life too if they got their arm caught in a rock for 127 hours or something?(_;)

You don't have to imagine, it tells you, it's a screwdriver, has a cutting edge and all those other less useful things...........

Many's ther time I've been out in the wilds and thought "hmm, what I really need right now is a butterfly screw wrench."

my question is why only in cardiff.... is there a fight for life where only the strong survive or those armed with multi utility credit cards

Had one of these in my wallet for about 10 years - in that time I rarely used it but there were so many people who did LOL. Used for fixing ski bindings through to opening packaging. Really useful. If only my local had one.

Can I just ask, where is the Poundland in Cardiff?!

....and what is a "direction recognizer" - is this American for "compass" or what?

now thats a top item - hope they have some left.

Queen Street. Near the Castle.

You could always google it and you'd find out straight away instead of having to wait for the reply on here?

Queens Street, I think...

I had problem with the police with one of them because they are considered a fixed blade (total ****) and now I carry a Spyderco UK Penknife and leatherman kick.

I left a knife and mulitool when traveling back from USA.......it went through the x-ray machine and they didn't notice.

I wonder what would happen if its seen in your suitcase at the airport. Would you be allowed to take it through?

I had one of these for ages and just used it as a bottle opener. The blade's pretty sharp too and maybe you could even take your arm off with it like in "127 hours".

And what's a "direction recogniser "? Sounds like a compass but maybe it's the round thing and you use the Sun ?

I found this page which has a handy set of instructions for all the tools on this device.
piku.org.uk/

The "Direction recognizer" is described thusly:
At the forest or the hungriness get lost way can’t pure direction, put the map in the direction that mariner’s compass point, and put the engrave to have already identified empty center of a circle of the machine to the map of the place is a position mostly up, pass 16 scale division bearing indication, the indirect unceasing use, be clear about the destination the direction.

I hope that's now perfectly clear.

When I saw the title I thought it was a pair of scissors in a box or something similar, so you could cut your credit card in half to 'survive' using it too much on buying deals you see posted here!

Just what I thought!

Two sharp edges on a bottle opener? Sounds like a good idea for use when drunk.

Ditto. Interesting to know how to grip this thing when using the "wrenches".

You could have used one bottle against the other as a lever or even a folded up piece of paper or the bottom of a lighter.

BOOM

They had these in poundworld before christmas, looked like cheap chinese tat...and as we all know 127 hours does not approve of cheap chinese blades.
