The mininch Tool Pen might not be able to write, but it sure can screw


Forgive me for that silly title, I just couldn’t help myself 😉 Seriously though, the mininch Tool Pen looks like a fantastic pocket tool that has been designed to hold 6 screwdriver bits in its 5.75 inch long handle. And since it’s less than 7 inches long, that means it’s TSA friendly.

The Tool Pen has an aircraft grade aluminum unibody housing that is available in several colors and the bits are made of S2 tool steel.

The mininch Tool Pen Premium is available in Imperial hex and Metric hex versions. Each Tool Pen Premium comes with 16 bits:

Metric Edition
• Bits Include: SL3, SL4, SL4.5, PH1, PH2, H2, H2.5, H3, H4, T10, T15, T20, T25, S1, S2, S3
Imperial Edition
• Bits Include: SL3, SL4, SL4.5, PH1, PH2, H5/64, H3/32, H1/8, H5/32, T10, T15, T20, T25, S1, S2, S3

To use it, you remove the magnetic cap and either start using the exposed tip or pull it out, pop it in the back to extend the next tip in line. Small windows in the handle allow you to see the location of the bit you need.

You can read all about the mininch Tool Pen Premium at mininch.com and order one for $69 from Amazon.

    I’ve had one of these since it was on Kickstarter. I keep it handy in my bed room and use it when I’m to lazy to go to my tool shop. It’s solid and works well. I mostly use the #2 Philips, but it’s nice having the other bits available if needed. Nice compact package.

    Ordered two of these last week. One for son’s birthday, other because it wasn’t my birthday :-). Ordered on the evening of the 20th, delivered today Sunday 23rd. Taiwan to Australia. Not bad for $5 delivery. They look really good.

      PS: The Amazon link wouldn’t ship to Australia but the mininch website did.
