Ecumenical Swiss Army Knife

multi blade flick knife

Like its famous namesake, the Ecumenical Swiss Army Flick Knife contains within its handles many blades, but instead of screwdrivers and tin openers, each of its shafts terminate, or open further to form a religious symbol.

Whether it is a Crucifix, Islamic Star and Cresent, miniature Buddha figure or an icon of a more obscure religion, the Ecumenical Swiss Army Knife can rapidly produce the symbol of choice on selection of its corresponding button on the handle.

Makes the perfect present for the believer in something or other, who wants to preserve their options in a convenient package.

       ... the perfect gift for an armed-forces unit padre, or for the vampire-hunter who may have to deal with symbol-resistant foes.

       I worship Swiss Army knives. My religious symbol is the blade of a Swiss Army knife. Can I get that?

       If I can't think why I'd ever need it, it must be worth a bun! [+]

       Then you can cut out the hearts of the non-believers with it.

       It'll still need a standard corkscrew (for opening the bottles of communion wine, of course).

This would also help in warding off vampires of different religious sects.

And help in establishing a rapport with any Mummies that might interrupt your archaeological excavations.

       One knife with six arms please.   

       Hindu or Martian worshipper?

       More of a non-denominational liking of the image with a touch of Arachnosticism.   

       Would atheists just get an empty handle?
apocalyps956, Jun 12 2008
  

       Hmmmm .... no, atheists would get the usual complement of symbols - they just wouldn't believe in them.   

       It's agnostics who will have the problems......

       That would be an Ecumenical matter...
simonj, Jun 12 2008
  

       ... hmmm yes, I suppose it would
Zen Buddhists would get the sound of one blade not opening.
xenzag, Jun 12 2008
  

       I thought "ecumenical" only related to Christianity and the many branches thereof...
lostdog, Jun 12 2008
  

       .... I'm sure you are right [lostdog], but sometimes I'm a bit ecumenical with the truth.

       ... and the jaws of Offler make a great bottle-opener.

       A Cthulhu Cult symbol would be essential ...

       If it had a mini usb drive you might be able to sell those.
