I hate all-in-ones, but I buy them all the time. Those all-in-one knives that let you cut lumber to build a log home or skin a moose that you shot with the very same knife. Sure, I'll probably never need to saw logs for a house or skin a wild animal, but it's comforting knowing that I have that option if I need it. Instead of buying a longboard and a thruster surfboard, I'll get a middle-of-the-road funboard that can do everything but doesn't work very well for anything. It's this mentality that drove so many sales of sports utility vehicles during the late 90s. You might never have to take your car off-road, but isn't it nice having that option? I can sympathize with the siren song of multi-use, and I see it in every jacked-up SUV in the grocery store parking lot. In fact, it's these vehicles that I'm going to cover with flyers marketing the sale of all the all-in-ones I've purchased over the years.
