I keep one in my shirt pocket while working, and I also have one in my glove box. During a camping trip last summer, I used it constantly — especially the bottle opener and mini light. It’s a great value for the price.”
One caveat: Don’t forget and leave it in your wallet when you go to the airport.
The Tool Lite includes a 2″ serrated blade, a “brilliant red mini light,” a can/bottle opener, a flat screwdriver, an awl, tweezers, and a toothpick — quite a lot of stuff to pack in a 1.3 ounce tool.
I used to have numerous little multi-tools ranging from the credit card type like this to the computer-version of the Swiss Army tool — you know, the one with the interchangable-bit screwdriver. I carried the Swiss Army in my computer bag, and others in my wallet and on my keychain. Now, though, I’m so afraid I’ll forget one that I generally carry only one knife — in my pocket.
I know with all the other effects of 9/11, this one takes a pretty serious back seat, but it still sucks. I miss having a small multi-tool with me on trips.
The Tool Lite’s MSRP is $25, and guess what — everyone seems to be selling it for just that.
