Surprisingly the design can create up to 81 different combinations of animals [3], each one a creature-shaped tool with a functional purpose. Suhami, a student at the Industrial Design at Shenkar College of Engineering & Design in Tel Aviv, has retained an element of traditional craft by making the pocket tool from simple Stainless Steel and fine Tabebuia wood [4].
