Kershaw has just come out with the TX-Tool, a multi-bit precision bit screwdriver for tuning and adjusting your Kershaw knives. It comes with T6, T8, T10, Phillips, and slotted screwdriver bits, making it suitable for use on other brands’ knives and multi-tools as well.
It looks like the Kershaw TX-Tool’s magnetic bit holder accepts standard-sized 4mm precision screwdriver bits, which means you could use it with other bits for whatever purpose you might want.
Common knife adjustment tasks might include moving a belt clip or tweaking the tension of a blade lock or pivot.
The Kershaw TX-Tool is 4.8″ long and weighs just an ounce. The bits store neatly inside the TX-Tool for storage.

I think that a possible better purchase would be the Wiha 75093 16 Piece System 4 ESD. Granted this sells for $10 more but you get 16 bits and they’re proper Wiha bits, not those cheap imports.
Better purchase? Maybe. But the shiny cut out “K” makes this one WAY cooler!
I reviewed that one here: https://toolguyd.com/wiha-micro-bit-screwdriver-review/
This one has a thicker handle, which could make it easier to loosen very tight fasteners.
I also have a cheap Kobalt Torx driver, but it can’t deliver any torque at all.
I was able to use the Wiha to work on my CRKT knives without any issues but I guess if you already have the bits then this Kershaw driver will be less attractive.
$11, how wrong can you go?
Looks to be all metal, which would be a good thing around knives so oil wouldn’t harm a plastic handle. For anyone wanting to ‘tune’ the action of your knife, be sure to lube it properly first. As a side note, it looks an awful lot like my automatic center punch but with a screwdriver bit holder instead of a sharpened tip. Not sure yet if I consider that a plus or minus.
Yep, has an aluminum body.
I agree with it looking like a automatic center punch, that was my first thought. With that in mind, perhaps it could be an impact driver.
What the heck is the phillips bit included? Looks almost like a truncated #2.
They don’t say, and I don’t want t ok assume.
They do say it’s for use on their Emerson collaboration knives.
I have an Emerson with Philips screws on the clip. I’ve never messed with them, but they are tiny.
They could make these bits double-ended and they should have included a ball point pen and an exacto-blade tip, then we would have a true winner
Years ago I picked up a Husky HD-74502 for $6.00.
4 double sided Torx bits T4,5,6,7,8,9,10,15.
Plastic handle but large enough to grip and get some torque.
The bits are still in good shape after years of use.
This looks like a center punch tool I have. If it included that function plus a punch bit, a rotating anchor plate for the palm on the top of the cap, and a slightly longer shank, I’d be sold forever.
