Everyone knows the Park Tools pizza cutter, because "What’s better than pizza after a good day of wrenching or riding?"
Campagnolo make a corkscrew. "Each component is a characteristic feature of the Campagnolo brand."
There's the Chris King espresso tamper, which is "machined in-house for aerospace quality precision."
And Phil Wood makes a shot glass and a pint glass, or rather metal drinking vessels: "Surgical grade stainless steel, machine finish".

So what else is out there? A Sram kebab skewer? Do Hope make a Lancashire hotpot, erm, hot pot? A Rohloff sausage smoker? There is so much potential to explore the ever productive interface between food, as fuel, nourishment and enjoyment, and the bicycle, which demands so much from its rider's appetite!
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

They may be diy but I've seen more than one or two loo roll holders made from frame headstock & fork uppr.

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

I'm sure I've seen the Park Tools spork as well.

OT: I see PT are based in Minnesota. Same state as Surly, Salsa, All City... Is Minnesota some kind of cycletastic state?

I've got the Park bog-roll holder and the pizza cutter (though the handlebars broke off that) and my kecks are currently being held up with a Park belt, which uses a spoke key as a buckle.

DT spokes are very useful as skewers on a BBQ
