NEWS – Today’s episode of “What interesting, or just plain weird EDC items did Julie find today?” brings us 5 super tiny EDC pocket tools. Ready, set, read!
First up, we have the Gato Tools Pocket Bit. This keychain tool has a double-sided bit that features a #2 Phillips head and 8mm flat head screwdriver tips made of hardened steel with a keyring in the center that doubles “handle”. Use the tips to tighten loose screws and use the flat head side to open boxes. The price is $12.99 on Amazon.
The next tiny EDC tool that I found is the NHDT SW705 Mini Titanium Alloy Package Opener Knife. That’s a long name for a tiny knife that you can attach to your keychain. This little knife features a TC4 Titanium frame with a two-sided blade that slides out of the frame when you need to use it and back in when you don’t. Although it might look like this knife uses Xacto blades, it does not. The blade is fixed so you’ll have to sharpen it when it becomes dull. Want one? It’s $15.99 on Amazon.
If you’d rather have a knife with easily replaceable blades, then the Korcraft EVERYDAY BLADE Tiny Replaceable Blade Folding Pocket Knife looks interesting.
This knife is convenient for several reasons. First of all, it can be attached to a keychain, or clipped to your pocket with the included clip. It also has a locking blade for safety. But the best feature is that it uses any #11 hobby/craft blade that you can easily find.
Want one? The Korcraft EVERYDAY BLADE Tiny Replaceable Blade Folding Pocket Knife is a little pricey at $45 on Amazon.
Every EDC gear fanatic needs a multi-tool, a knife, and … a pen. I’ve already shown you a tiny multi-tool and a tiny knife (two of them in fact) and now I have a tiny ballpoint pen to show you. I think the Sukcruny Mini Titanium Pen is cool because it is a bolt-action pen in a miniature form factor.
The pen is made of Titanium and it has a loop at the top so you can attach it to a keychain. It uses standard D1 refills and is priced at $14.99 from Amazon.
Last but not least is a mini flashlight. I wanted to choose a AAA flashlight, but they are bigger than my definition of “tiny”. So I went with the Olight i1R 2 EOS rechargeable flashlight. It’s available in dessert tan or black and a max of 150 lumens. You won’t use it to find your way out of a haunted forest, but will help you find the chapstick that rolled under your bed.
This flashlight is currently $17.95 on Amazon, but it’s on sale for $15.26 directly from Olight.

They do an upgraded version of the Olight i1R 2 EOS, called the Olight i1R 2 Pro which is USB-C and 180 lm and a 130mAh battery (the old one a micro, 150lm and 70mAh). I’m using the old one but will upgrade soon as USB C like my phones.
That’s good to know!
You didn’t list the Leatherman Micra. Only slightly larger but fully functional. The most useful multi tool out there.
I love Leatherman tools (I have a Squirt) but I don’t think they are super tiny enough to fit in with the rest of the items I listed in this particular article.
The RovyVon A1 Aurora is a great EDC keychain light. Same size as the one listed but at 650 lumens a fair bit more light for your dollar.
Another cool collection article from you – thanks! Are any of the tiny knives TSA approved? I so often find myself needing a package tape cutter and a screw driver. Since I carry neither wallet (just a MagSafe CC pouch) nor keyring, I’ve resorted to using my Apple Card as a crutch. Although I think I told you about that previously, maybe your reader will find it useful: I sharpened one corner of the metallic card to be sharp enough to cut and use another corner as a simple screw driver. I’ve looked into other credit-card EDCs, but they’re all thicker than a CC and wouldn’t fit into my “wallet”.
I didn’t think to check about TSA approval of the mentioned items. Sorry!
I do like your idea of using your Apple Card as a multi-tool!
