Gerber Steady multi-tool includes a tripod

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on July 24th, 2011

We’ve seen our share of multi-tools around here, but none of them have a tripod. The Gerber Steady has one, making this multi-tool great for both adventurers and photographers. It has a pair of legs on one side and a folding tripod screw on the other.

In addition it also has the usual 12 tools for your other needs as well. This pocket tool will arrive next year for $65 and should come in very handy for you.

Space Intruder Multi-Tool

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

If you love Space Invaders and are a fan of carrying a multi-tool with you, then looky here. This Space Intruder Multi-tool is for you. With both Phillips and flathead screwdriver blades, this thing is barely a multi-tool. You won’t be repairing much with this thing.

But it is awesome and retro. Most importantly it looks like a Space Invader, regardless of it’s name. Now we just need to get Pac-Man in on the multi-tool business. Maybe Donkey Kong.

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on February 25th, 2010

It can also open other bottles and jars for your girlly hands, making you feel like a real man.

The design is made so that everything is ready to use in the shortest time possible, whether you are killing or fixing things.

Spyderco Byrdwrench multi-tool

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on May 13th, 2008

Spyderco Byrdwrench multi-toolThe Spyderco Byrdwrench has an odd name. It’s not a wrench made by spiders for birds who spell their name with a Y like the British rock band. That would just be silly. What it is, is a multi-tool that’s a bit different from some other multi-tools. It sports a combination of one-hand open knife, slip-joint pliers, bit driver, and an adjustable crescent wrench.

It’s also got a rough punch file/hole-starter and a steel belt clip, and can be separated into two halves to reveal the four screwdriver bits inside. While I’m sure it’s convenient and it does have an interesting sort of industrial look, I’m not really sold on the idea that it’s somehow better then my trusty Leatherman multi-tool. The price is about the same at $77. If anyone has one, let me know how you like it.

Posted in Accessories,Baggage,Batteries by Shane McGlaun on September 23rd, 2010

Quirky has some cool products that we have talked about before. One of my favorites was the Switch knife that surfaced a while back. The latest offering from Quirky is the Trek Support backpack. The thing is designed to hold your gadgets and notebook and can help keep them charged up too.

The backpack has a removable battery inside that promises 7 hours of power depending on what you hook to it. The battery pack has four pockets and has enough outlets to charge three of those USB gadgets at the same time.

Micro-Max is 19 tools in one

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on October 9th, 2008

Micro-Max is 19 tools in oneWe love multi-tools. Probably because they are like Transformers, but with tools instead of bots. This one looks like a weird robot-tool crab in the pic. The Micro-Max tool transforms into not two or three, but nineteen different useful tools. With this one you get six different screwdrivers, two hex wrenches, a bottle opener, pliers, file, and wire tools. These are perfect for DIY junkies. But at only $13 I’m not sure it will last you long. Still, it’s a nice cheap way to ensure that you always have tools on your person.

13 in 1 Multi Tool Pen has MacGuyver written all over it

13 in 1 Multi Tool Pen has MacGuyver written all over it
We’ve seen our share of multi-tools, but I don’t think we’ve ever seen a multi tool pen before. My guess is that this would be MacGuyver’s pen of choice. It’s got so many useful tools inside, it will definitely get you out of a jam and help you build a plane out of duct tape and porn mags.

Tools include a Ballpoint Pen, Hole Puncher, Stainless Steel File, Short Cutting Blade, Flat Screwdriver, Wire Sleeve Remover/Small Nail Remover, Ear Pick(wtf), Long Cutting Blade, Tweezer, Philips Screwdriver, Stainless Steel Fork and Saw. It’s worth a shot at only $14.95. You never know when you’re going to need a pen AND a fork at the same time. And there’s always the rare occasion when you need both and an ear pick.

Most expensive Leatherman ever costs $40,000
Normally if you are a DIY kind of guy, you would just whip out your Leatherman or other similarly priced multi-tool. But if you want to fix things in style, while worrying about breaking a $40,000 tool this Leatherman is for you.

It’s more for say, the handyman in charge of a palace, or the rapper who has absolutely run out of bling options. Leatherman’s 25th annivesary Argentum collection is all about looks, but they still are fully functional. The collection ranges from the $12,000 Acanto to the $40,000 Dorado, and are the work of artist Adrian Pollarols.

Lil’ Guppie multitool, versatile as any big fish

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2008

Lil’ Guppie multitool, versatile as any big fish
Seems like the new generation of multi-tools have some odd designs. Much like the Spyderco Byrdwrench, the Lil’ Guppie (doesn’t that sound like what the skipper would call Gilligan in an underwater Gilligan’s Island show?) has an odd look.

The Lil’ Guppie is tiny enough to fit on your keychain, but super versatile still. The adjustable wrench can open up pretty wide for it’s size, and it’s tininess is actually an asset, letting you get into all kinds of tight areas. It also sports a razor-sharp blade inside, and it’s tail is a flat-blade screwdriver bit. Need a Phillips head? It conveniently slips right out from inside. Of course it wouldn’t be a multi-tool without a bottle opener, so it performs that duty as well.
