Pinch multi-tool

Pocket tools come in many sizes and shapes these days, and are made of many exotic materials. So, what makes a pocket tool different? To me lately it has been size and weight. I have my fair share of "pocket tools" that are usually around the size of a credit card. That is great if [...]
