Pimped Swiss Army Knife

The Swiss really know how to bling it on! Who says pocket knives have to be masculine? The snazzy new Swiss Army knives were designed for the woman looking for some pretty practicality in her pocket... or purse. But isn't that just the beauty of it all? We have options! So why not choose gold and diamonds where we can? These aint no Swarovski bobbles either -- the diamonds are frickin' real!

"Victorinox is 120 years old this year, and to celebrate, the company has given the iconic Swiss Army Knife a hideous bling-over," Wired reports. "The 74 mm (three inch) Executive Knife has been inflicted with a yellow gold case and 430 tiny diamonds, which add up to four carats. This is the cheap model, and comes in at just $50,000. If you're feeling fancy, there is a platinum version for $70,000."

Oh yeah, and it comes with an ORANGE PEELER!! Could this be any more over-the-top?

They also have a 1GB USB gadget, the SwissMemory Prestige, "available only in shells of solid 925 Sterling Silver or 18 ct. White and Yellow Gold. Some designs are handcrafted, mounted with natural diamonds by the world's best craftsmen, all 100% Swiss made."
