When it comes to auction houses willing to selling the most unique pieces on the market, you won’t find better than Christie’s. They’ve done Jean-Michel Basquiat artwork. They’ve done original Darth Vader costumes. They’ve done Bond Aston Martins. Now, Christie’s is turning to something near and dear to our hearts—whiskey. Christie’s Wine & Spirits Department has compiled an enormous collection of pre-prohibition spirits that is being billed as “the most comprehensive and important collection of pre-prohibition Bourbon to ever appear at auction.” You have the chance to bid on over 40 cases of unopened, bonded whiskey, including Hermitage whiskey distilled in 1914 and Old Crow distilled in 1912. The complete collection of unique, pre-prohibition whiskey was secreted away in a Scooby Doo-style secret lair that existed behind a bookcase, leaving it untouched for almost a century. Now, you have the opportunity to add these rare gems to your own personal collection.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket.

As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
