Also easy to locate in a haystack

Isaac’s sweet new multi-function pocketknife that he received at his birthday party includes this enigmatic tool which the instructions identify as a “sewing needle.”  It hinges out from, but does not detach from, the base knife.


I’ve been trying to picture how it would work, and so far I’ve decided it would be good to have on hand for after you climb the beanstalk, when the giantess asks you to mend her shirt.

    Or if you were making boots out of sealskin…

    It’s probably for some masculine sewing project like making a mountain man rustic coat out of the hide of the bear you just killed (with your bare hands), skinned, and tanned in the hot sun.

    So for the sealskin boots or the bearskin coat, I guess you’d have to first use one of the other tools to cut a lot of 2″ diameter holes to sew through? Even the 2″ thing would only work if you kept the needle mostly collapsed. Otherwise you’d need a hole about 5″ wide. (‘Cause the whole knife has to go through the hole with the needle.)

  4. Jen says:

    No, you just have to re-thread the needle for every punchthrough and use a big leather strap. Takes a lot of manly patience.

    Ah, I see it now, Jen. I’ll have to tell Isaac that owning this tool requires him to make his own coat. After he kills himself a bear.
