Design Classics

#1
Okay folks, we've all heard about the all-time design classics like the Zippo lighter, Swiss Army Knife etc. What IYHO counts as a design classic, never to be bettered piece of kit? (no age limit)

I will disqualify the fact that your finger is exactly the right size to fit up your nose as an act of Dog (sorry, dyslexic).

I will nominate a few for starters: Lee Enfield (SMLE, Mk 4), AK in all it's derivatives, 1911 Colt, Browning Semi-Auto 12b and that should eliminate the guns 'n' ammo readers.

SMLE Mk4 (IV) was a conversion from the Lee-Metford and Mk1 and Mk1* Lee Enfield (Long Lee's) to SMLE MkIII Pattern.
I wonder if in fact you are referring to the Rifle No4 Mk1, Mk1*,Mk2,Mk1/3.

On that note I'll get my anorack. :oops:
