Amazon’s Deal of the Day is the Gerber Crucial multi-tool. Today-only, unless supplies run out sooner, the Crucial is priced at $25 even, down from the regular price of $31.
The Crucial features a partially serrated knife blade, pliers with wire cutters, Phillips and slotted screwdrivers, a bottle opener, pocket clip, and carabiner clip.
According to Gerber, the Crucial functions like a multitool, carries like a pocket knife. That said, we would agree that it looks quite a bit slimmer than regular multi-tools. Our favorite slim multi-tool is the Leatherman Skeletool, which is currently priced quite a bit higher than the Crucial.

We wouldn’t agree the that the Crucial gives you a workshop of tools in your pocket – there’s no file, package opener, saw, can opener, wire stripper, ruler, strap cutter, or screwdriver bit holder. Even so, this isn’t a bad-looking design for someone looking to spend less than $30 on a small multi-tool.
