SGI's Finest Product

I worked for Silicon Graphics for a while in the late 1990s. It was a fun time, but the one thing that has stayed with me is this brilliant reversible screwdriver (part no. 9980915) which they used to include with graphics board upgrades. If SGI had any sense they would re-release this as a collectors item!

I have an almost identical item bought from an auto store. I had previously received one as a gift and subsequently bought about a dozen as they were only 30cents each. One of my all-time favourite tools and almost indispensable. I can't seem to find a current source for them though.

How are they reversible - you can both tighten and loosen screws? :-)

Reversible - I should have explained this - you can pull out the metal part, it's Philips (crosshead) on one end, flat head on the other!
