Handmade in Switzerland, the Motorcycle Bivouac is a minimalist camp shelter that uses your parked bike for one of its walls.

The blade is made of exotic Damascus steel but the handle of this folding pocketknife from L’atelier Perceval is out of this world. Literally. It’s carved from a chunk of meteorite.
