    There is a Swiss Army Knife for Quilters!

    Unfortunately, there is a drawback- they appear to be crazy expensive. <whiny voice> But it has a rotary cutter on iiiiiitttt.<end whiny voice>

    Well, we can enjoy pictures for free, at least. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bernina-Sew...orig_cvip=true

    Wow, how cool! Not too sure I'd like to carry around a rotary cutter, though. I'm dangerous enough with the one I use on my sewing table. I'd carry many bandaids for sure!

    OMG!! I want it! Just for the conversations it would start, not to mention all the times I've been stuck in the woods with nary a rotary cutter or measuring tool in sight! Oh that is just priceless!
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Okay, Ginger, I've got to ask: why would you need a rotary cutter in the woods? I'd think a chainsaw or bow saw would work better...but then again, why not a rotary cutter? You could use it to cut flower stems, trim tiny branches. oh I don't know...quilt while DH is off with his chainsaw? Love your response.

    I think that is so cool! I love collectibles and would definitely like one of these to go along with my other sewing collectibles. The price is a bit steep but I might spring for it just to have one.

    If anyone buys the knife, please let us know where you purchased it. I'd love to own one.

    $270 ! The tools are so small, I think I would get frustrated and opt for by little bug out bag of full size tools..... Doesn't seem practical to me.....but a lot of my tools are gadgets not always used. I'm afraid this would be one of them.

    It does look interesting. It appears you may be able to order one from your Bernina dealer. If I owned a Bernina machine I would be very tempted.

    I'm very tempted because I have an "office" gadget -- it is similar to a Swiss Army Knife and has all of the tools you would expect to see in an office. I'll ask the next time I'm at the local Bernina dealer.
