Hey, is that a utility tool in your pocket or are you just sporting an embarrassing metallic bulge in your trousers?
The problem with most utility tools is that you end up carrying around a brick-like thing in your pocket when, let’s face it, you’ll never need four different sizes of rotating blades, six different screwdrivers, a magnifying glass, wood saw and spoon. And, more importantly, you’ll inevitably have not bothered to bring it with you when you really need it.
Enter the Swiss Tech Micro-plus 8-in-1 multi-tool. The clever folks at Swiss Tech have managed to get rid of all those tools you’ll never need and compress the rest into a tiny folding unit for your key ring. The multi-tool includes the most common screwdrivers (2 sizes of Phillips and slot-head), wire cutters, wire strippers, metal shears and, most wonderfully, a mini set of precision pliers. After all, men don’t use tweazers to pull out splinters; men use precision pliers! The tool also includes a small ruler for measuring, well, anything really – just in really really small increments.
The multi-tool attaches to any standard-sized key ring, meaning you don’t ever have to remember to bring it along with you when you go out. The real joy is remembering you have it with you when you need it!
There’s no better small gift for the practically minded, or anyone harbouring unhealthy MacGyver fixations.
