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.
Two prong fork
Flint & steel
Soup spoon with measuring marks

||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.

are you just... oh, OK, it's a Swiss Army Chef's knife."
||Oh, where to attach the blender, Kitchen Aid mixer, waffle
iron, and pot holders?
||//Is there a gadget for extracting horse DNA from burgers
||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.
