Titanium Multi-Tool Collar Stays
These collar stays are the sort of thing a modern day MacGyver would have as it incorporates a half-phillips screwdriver, slotted screwdriver, thread cutter, and a bottle opener (no paperclip, though, sorry).

Maybe the intricate, fluted Borosilicate glass, or the knowledge that each piece was expertly created by master glassblowers in the Czech Republic.
