The tool from the chinese shop in my neighborhood (image search)
« on: February 02, 2016, 01:05:23 PM »
It's a multiple tool.
5 I think is a bottle opener
3 is a screw driver
1 is a can opener
8 a sewer or something like that
2 seems to be a cutter
4 for measuring

But I don't know the rest of options. I would to know it.
One idea may be search this image in a search engine.

Do you know the best one ?
Can you indicate me the name of this tool.

By the reverse side of the small paper all is in chinese i presume.

# 6 is for nuts (as in nuts and bolts!)

Arranged in sequence:

1 is a can opener
2 seems to be a cutter
3 is a screw driver
4 for measuring
5 I think is a bottle opener
6 for opening/tightening nuts
7
8 a sewer or something like that

Thanks a lot Tomos. The 6 option is really imaginative and of course exact.
Best Regards

6 for opening/tightening nuts

I still don't know what #9 is, even when given the name "auxiliary direction indicator".

Does anyone know what you would actually use it for?

It's a compass of sorts, floating object placed in the middle when the tool is sitting/dipped in water. There are youtube videos under 'survival kits' or similar queries showing it in use.

It is a Kickstarter that has a Chinese Knock off.  Apparently on a lot of these tooling Kickstarter projects, there are Chinese knock offs that are not as durable as the originals.

I'm not exactly sure why you'd need the marked hole to get use out of a compass you made with a magnetized wire/needle - just float the needle in any small container of water.  However, looking this up did net me a couple of neat bits of trivia:

1) apparently you can magnetize the appropriate kind of wire or needle using the static electricity generated by rubbing it with hair or fur.  I can't imagine that it's easy, but apparently it'll work.  I might have to try it one day just to see if I can get it to be a compass.

2) one guy who posted a video about one of these tools found that the tool itself was already magnetized and that by hanging it on a thread (using the provided lanyard hole) it would align itself to magnetic north.  That seems like a more useful makeshift compass than the "direction auxiliary indicator".

You're probably right, but this version on Amazon UK talks about a "sun compass."  That could mean a Solar compassw such as Bagnold's Sun Compass, as used by the Long Range Desert Groupw.  Looks too simple for that, though.
