A set of 4 or 5 folding multi - tool knives, all stainless steel, sterilizable by boiling,with a varied assortment. Number 1 would have a holder for disposable scalpel blade, scissors, probe and so forth; 2 and 3 would have hemostats and accessory tools, 4 and 5 would duplicate some functions and add a set of dental picks, suturing tools, etc.

       Hinges would require extra care with steralisation. [-]

       maybe the hinge pin pulls out or the blades are otherwise made 100% open surface. Problem is you would need it to be assembled and placed in a steri-pak until needed. I'm not seeing a lot of application for this, the final unit is going to be clunky and heavy, with hinges, and not much smaller than a conventional flat packet of tools.

       1. Does the surgeon *have* to be Swiss?
2. Tools and instruments are the same?
3. "Dr. Scissorhands, we're ready for the next patient"?

       hehe, good one [blissy]!!
this would be much too cumbersome as [21] has stated.

       [21] You have identified several reasons why this is impractical, for both the surgeon and the patient, and why such a tool could potentially even injure the surgeon. Yet you seem to have given it a [-].....you are an enigma.

       No, wait, as you were.
