LASER POINTING SWISS ARMY KNIFE is from Wenger, manufacturer of the
world-famous Swiss Army knives.  It combines seven frequently used
tools in a 3 1/4-inch-long design that also includes a five megawatt,
class 3A red beam laser light that lets you clearly point out details
from up to 100 meters away.  Tools include a can opener, scissors,
screwdriver, cap lifter, stainless steel main blade, nail file,
corkscrew, and awl, in addition to the laser.  All tools are heat-
treated high-carbon stainless steel.  The patented screwdriver has a
safety lock system.  Uses two 1.5 volt batteries (included).

[Well, either this is a gag or that "megawatt" was a typo for "milliwatt"
(microwatt? nanowatt? picowatt? femtowatt? attowatt? zeptowatt...)  -psl]
