MAKE Flickr photo pool member Andrew made an awesome USB switchblade, he writes –

I bought this knife kit from, it’s called the NATO Tomb Raider (they don’t carry it anymore) I think it cost like $5 or something. I wanted to understand how my $300 Microtech Ultratech worked, but I didn’t want to take that one apart.

I figured out how it worked, so after serving that purpose I reworked the innards, machined a new sliding mechanism and attached a 2gb USB drive to it. James Bond still carries a regular flash drive around, like a loser.
