The Byrdrench multi-tool adds a few twists to the typical knife and pliers combo we’re all familiar with. One difference: you get a pair of slip joint pliers rather than the standard needle nose pliers you find in most multi-tools. And the Byrdrench splits apart into separate tools, which really sets it apart from the pack.
If you separate the pliers, you produce a locking knife/screwdriver in one hand and an adjustable crescent wrench in the other. They function as individual tools, or you can combine the two halves to give yourself a longer handled crescent wrench. The tool includes a file and a slot that will accept four built-in standard hex bits.
You might notice this tool’s resemblance to the Spyderench — Byrd is Spyderco’s line of imported knives, and Byrd has reissued the design under their mark. Street pricing starts around $55.
