Any photographer will tell you that having a pen knife in your camera bag is a smart idea - you never know when it will come in useful.
And after this knife is released by Gerber, it could be useful a whole lot more often… because this one has a built-in tripod.
The Gerber Steady also features a 1/4-20 screw for mounting your camera and has a number of other (more typical) tools.
Sure it won't replace your Manfrotto carbon-fibre tripod, but for one which you could always have with you it looks pretty impressive. To be released in 2012.
