A pocket knife with two leatherman mechanisms in the form of an 'M' instead of the popular 'V'. This gives two plier-action tools e.g. locking plier and scissors/wire cutter. Having combed several lists of sought-after features and considering the scenarios I find myself frequently embroiled in (e.g.
drunk and on the wrong side, legally speaking, of a US Army nuclear testing site fence, wearing a flight-impeding ostrich costume) I propose the tools below, from a-z in no particular order. Ideally this is a device with which any problem that cannot be solved, can be physically or philosphically remanded into a context wherein it is either irrelevant or desireable.

b. scissor/wire cutter in other leatherman junction
