Steampunk multitool?

Here’s an interesting take on the multitool, it’s called a Harp Tool ($40), because it resembles something of a harp when it’s closed. Tools include slotted- and Phillips-head screwdrivers, punch/awl, saw, corkscrew, file and small/large-head hammer (which doubles as a bottle opener). Stored in a leather carrying case.
