Swiss Army Kitchen Knife

If Swiss Army made a chef's pocket tool, what should it include?

No idea why I thought of this, but it occurred to me: a pocket tool for chefs.

Here's what I think it would include:

Offset knife - paring, but also oriented to work as a proper chef's knife for chopping, maybe by ratcheting at an angle to keep knuckles away from the counter. Would have the proper curve for chopping as well.

Tongs/flipper - flat metal that fans out to be a spatula/flipper, then has a release to be tongs.

Microfine grater Poultry scissors Two prong fork Flint & steel Sharpener Thermometer Soup spoon with measuring marks Corkscrew (classic)

       Wow, you've been here a long time. Does it surprise you that you have been here for 15 years? Yikes. That makes you an old timer so to speak.   

       Anyway, about the idea, I like the concept, but think that it would be a bit bulky, and maybe clumsy to use. It sure would make an impression, though, when in someone's pocket.

       Oh, where to attach the blender, Kitchen Aid mixer, waffle iron, and pot holders?

       It's called a PhD student, cheap, but they might get disillusioned and wander off. The key is to get one from an absolute mess of a country, that way it's extract the horse DNA or it's back to Gulagistan.

       What can I say, I like crazy half baked ideas :^)

       The AI version of this is the cook in Schlock Mercenary. He began life as a smart bomb but has been repurposed into an intelligent blender / chopper.
