Amazon has put this Leatherman Wave multitool and Monarch flashlight combo set on sale for $55. Included is the Leatherman Wave multitool (my favorite), a Monarch 300 1-AAA LED flashlight, and a nylon belt sheath for the tool. The price of the set is comparable to that of the standalone multitool, so you’re basically getting the ~$14 […]
Leatherman’s new keychain-sized multi-tools, the Style & Style CS are now on sale on Amazon and many other retailers. It doesn’t look like they’re actually in stock anywhere, which means that there must have been a massive number of preorders. I ordered a Style CS, and a Style in black because the plain-finish Style does not […]
This past December, I had the opporunity to check out one of these immensely popular 11-in-1 survival cards firsthand, and I thought it was junk. The tool’s knife and saw were dull and in awkward positions, with the other features being as equally unimpressive.
Leatherman has recently come out with two new tactical multitools, the MUT Utility, and MUT EOD. These MUT multitools are overbuilt and feature specialty tools for cleaning and maintaining the M16/AR15 family of assault rifles.
It appears that Leatherman’s popular Skeletool and Skeletool CX compact pocket multitools have switched blades. The Skeletool now features a partially serrated blade, whereas the CX now has a full plain-edge blade.
PB Swiss Tools has just announced that they’ve come up with two newly redesigned Insider compact screwdrivers, creatively named Insider 2 and Insider 3. These new Insiders feature an integrated bit holding magazine that looks to provide even quicker access to the interchangeable onboard insert bits.
Gerber’s new Microbew features a water resistant LED light built into a bottle opener. The Microbew has a stainless steel body, recessed switch to prevent accidental activation, replaceable batteries, and regulated circuitry. Gerber Microbrews are available with either white or red LEDs, and should soon be available at retailers for $12.50. The only concern we have about the Microbew is […]
Along with the previously mentioned Style, Leatherman has introduced the Style CS, a rather compact keychain tool that’s packed with features. Referred to as the mini Skeletool, Leatherman’s Style CS packs 8 essential tools into a lightweight and compact design.
Leatherman’s Style is a new keychain pocket knife and multi-tool with a very minimalist and “survivalist” design. At a mere 2.3 inches long and weighing less than one ounce (0.8 oz to be precise), the Style is the perfect size for a keychain tool.
County Comm’s Screw Key is a set of two key ring sized screwdrivers that includes one Phillips driver, and one slotted driver. These mini drivers are constructed from heat treated and hardened steel, and have an industrial-looking black oxide coating. If it came down to a choice between these County Comm drivers and a Screwpop keychain tool, we […]
We recently found out about the Screwpop 4-in-1 keychain tool, which offers a bottle opener, #2 Phillips screwdriver bit, flathead screwdriver bit, and a 1/4″ nut driver in a tidy key-sized package. If you consider that the flathead bit can be used as an impromptu pry bar, then the Screwpop is in fact a 5-in-1 tool. […]
Following the wake of their immensely popular Artifact keychain tool and pocket knife, Gerber is preparing to release the Shard, an even smaller keychain tool. Gerber’s Shard is a lightweight and compact pocket tool that looks to be quite functional despite its small size. One of the more interesting points that Gerber makes, is that the tool is considered […]
We recently posted our suggested Holiday Gift Guide, and before that we predicted which tools will sell very well during this holiday shopping season. Today, we’ll tell you about three of the tools that we are gifting to friends and family this year.
As part of Amazon’s Friday Sale, the Leatherman Wave multitool and Monarch 300 LED flashlight combo is on sale for $48.36. We’re huge fans of the LM Wave, and while we haven’t heard stupendous things about the new Monarchs, it seems to be a decent AAA torch. Typically the Wave is priced at ~$65, and […]
Kershaw’s E.T. external toggle knife is one sleek looking blade. Relatively lightweight at 3.7 ounces, the E.T. features a 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handle, and 3-1/4″ Sandvik 13C26 stainless steel blade with a bead-blasted finish. These are decent specs, but what really sets this knife apart from ordinary pocket folders is its unique toggle mechanism.
The Sog Micron is a very, very tiny knife. With its 1.5″ blade fully extended, the Micron stretches out to a whopping overall length of 3.44″. The Micron is perfectly sized as a keychain knife, but if size is not an issue, something like the Victorinox Swiss Army Classic pocket knife would be more versatile for […]
Check out this Victorinox Swiss Army Classic Knife with an American Flag motif. It is slightly more expensive than those with the standard design and color, but it’s cool enough to overlook. Victorinox American Flag Swiss Army Knife (via Amazon) Product Details via Victorinox Note: To view this product on Amazon, you have to select the […]
Leatherman’s new Freestyle is due to be released in May, and we are very excited. Leatherman’s Freestyle is based off of their Skeletool design, but whereas the Skeletool is a full-size tool, the Freestyle is slightly smaller and lighter, making it a more pocket-friendly tool. Full-size knife? Check. Full-size pliers? Check. “I want one now” […]
The charged up Sog Kilowatt is a quality liner-lock pocket knife for anyone who might need to strip wires or cables at a moment’s notice. The Kilowatt features a 3.4″ blade, a zytel handle, a conventional 12-24ga wire stripper, a spring-loaded wire stripper, and a “hole stripper.” The Kilowatt’s electric-centric aesthetics are well matched to the functions of […]
We are absolutely thrilled at having just discovered that Streamlight is releasing three new Stylus Pro flashlights. In addition to flat black, Stylus Pros are now available in red, silver, and blue. Since my Stylus Pro is used as a tool for a total of 10 minutes a day, and carried as an accessory for 10 hours, a bit of color might […]
