It may not be the “one ring to rule them all”, but the Ringtool can fix a lot


There are tons of pocket tools out on the market these days, in many shapes sizes and forms. I am always looking for unique, simple to use and easy to carry pocket tools to refine and simplify my EDC (Every Day Carry). The Ringtool by Reductivist may be the replacement I am looking for. The Ringtool is not so much a pocket tool as it is a key ring tool. As its name implies, it is round with nine tools built into it. The tools are:

  • a bottle opener
  • 3 mm Hex Head
  • 4 mm Hex Head
  • 5 mm Hex Head
  • 6 mm Hex Head
  • 8 mm Hex Head
  • Flathead Driver
  • Phillips Driver
  • Torx Head T25 Driver

Although built with cyclists in mind, the Ringtool would be a great addition to anyone’s key ring for those emergency situations, especially for an end of the day beer opening. The Ringtool is a Kickstarter project currently seeking funding until July 19, 2013. Funding for this project starts at $1 and runs to $40 with $25 getting you a second run version of the Ringtool. If successful the first run tools are scheduled for delivery in October 2013.

  2. I’m getting one of these once they are in the Sub $10 range. To keep attached to my antenna for Ham Radio, Hate having to search for tool to make adjustments. Seams perfect fit.
