Multi-tool

The next time you go out into the forest to camp or hike, leave your axe at home and just take the KLAX Lumberjack Head from Klecker Knives. The KLAX head is a stainless steel axe that does more than chop down trees. It features additional tools like a knife blade, hammer head, hex wrenches… Read More

I don’t want to stereotype an entire gender, but I feel like it’s safe to say that when given a choice of colors for gadgets and tools, a typical male will almost always choose black. If you’re one of those typical males and are looking for a new multi-tool, look no further than the Victorinox… Read More

I am a big fan of Keyport’s key organizing products like their Slide and Pivot key organizers. I am always happy to hear when they come out with something new, so I was glad to receive an email announcing the MOCA 10-in-1 Multi-Tool for their Pivot key organizers. Designed to be used with the Pivot or a standard… Read More

The word “multi-tool” has become a household term since Leatherman marketed the original PST, Pocket Survival Tool, in 1983. I bought my first one in 1984 to replace a backpack full of tools that were required to bring to all of my engineering labs, making for a very heavy backpack. Since then, multi-tools have become… Read More

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… Read More

The Sync II from SOG is a multi-tool that you don’t carry your pocket or dangle from your belt because it’s been designed to replace the belt buckle on your favorite belt. The SOG Sync II folds up into a rectangular form that is not unlike the Swiss+Tech Mega-Max that I told you about a… Read More

When you fold the Baton Q1 in half, it converts into a pair of spring-assisted travel-friendly scissors. The Q4 also has a… Read More

I’m a huge fan of Keyport’s Slide key organizers and carried the Slide 2.0 for a couple of years until I began a minimalist phase and switched to something even smaller than the Slide. My alternative solution worked ok, but I missed the Slide. That’s why I was very excited when I found out that… Read More

The True Utility FIXR Pocket Tool packets 20 tools into one clip-on tool that is small enough to hang on your belt loop or clip to your gear bag. It even comes in a reusable plastic case. Let’s take a closer look. Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger size. What’s in the… Read More

The Lil Trucker is a current Kickstarter project.  This multi-tool is designed by firefighters and built in the US.  You can see from the image that it packs a lot of functionality in a small space.  It has rescue tools – a belt cutter and a window breaker – to get you out of a… Read More

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… Read More

When I was a kid, I loved taking things apart to find the magnets, gears and other cool little components. I even had my own little toolbox which I kept under my bed where I stored tools and parts that I had scavenged. I would have loved a multi-tool in those days. The folks at… Read More
