Mother of All Swiss Army Knives

Mother of all Swiss Army knives is a multiblade folding knife that has 100 blades and even a functional .22-caliber fivhot pinfire revolver. It was made in Germany in 1880s. It does not have a bottle opener, because the bottle cap as we know wasn’t invented until 1892.
