With the urban desk warriors working themselves into a lather over Leatherman’s Tread multi-tool bracelet, you’d think it had hit upon new levels of genius design.

Consisting of links offering the use of 25 small tools - small screwdrivers, bottle openers, box cutters and the like - it looks suitably fashionable, even coming in a matte black option.
