The Lancrastian Army Knife is a compact assortment of tools sandwiched between two wooden sleeves. The tools can be extracted individually for use or closed away for compactness. The sleeves themselves have been painted in a cheerful red colour except for a small white cross at one end. This tool has been packed full of some things that a soldier would need in the field and many things they would not. It would seem that some of King Verence's suggestions managed to survive the design process despite Shawn's best efforts.
The Lancrastian Army Knife is about four inches long and about an inch wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type misc.
You can "extract" a tool from the knife, and "close" the knife to put the tool away afterwards. You can also "look" at a specific tool currently open on the knife for more details.
