Mac's Trusty Ol' Tool

Did MacGuyver use and off-the-shelf Swiss Army Knife, or did they have one specially constructed for the series? Anyone know?

He used one that had a LOT of built-in special effects.

Iā€™m in the market for a new survival knife, and want to price the one that has a tool that can prevent a nuclear meltdown before I buy one. Or the one that can make a bazooka out of bamboo, string, and swamp gas.

Actually, I think the bamboo fart-gas bombs were cut using a larger knife MacGuyver found hanging by the winch.

And the nuclear reactor coolant leak was mended with chocolate bars. But he must not have been able to get to the knive.
