Kombo: Fun with specialized tools!

I have a soft spot for specialized tools: niche products refined through decades or centuries of iterations by and for the experts. As a layperson, seeing a product of this type is like looking into a parallel universe where they're ubiquitous - it's amazing not merely that they exist, but that they're so well-developed. The Kombo Tool fits in this category, and if you couldn't tell by looking (I sure couldn't), it's for fishing. It's a bonker (yes!), a filet knife, a scooper, and a sharpener - of course, it's waterproof and it floats in case it's dropped overboard. It sounds like a well-designed product that I'll never use - but it just makes me happy that it exists!
