Some time ago we introduced Merit Badges on the forum for members who wanted to share parts of their collection or what they'd accomplished with them. Since they were introduced we have almost doubled the number of available badges, including a number of Challenge Badges. Now, we introduce another Challenge Badge, but this one has a little twist.
Assume for a moment that you want a decent multitool, but you don’t have or want to spend a lot of money. In fact, your budget is a total of $5US, including shipping. I realize this may seem a bit extreme, not to mention a bit of an impossible task, but I like extremely impossible tasks, so I thought I would give it a shot.
Looking on eBay you will find all manner of cheap tools, many from the Far East, many cheap knockoffs of existing designs from major manufacturers like Leatherman or Gerber, many from custom makers like Peter Atwood or Ray Kirk, and many that just leave you scratching your head as to what the heck they are for, or what was the designer thinking when he/she designed that?
