The tool market seems to offer a multi-tool for every possible need. Now Leatherman, seeing a niche to fill, offers the Crunch, which sports the usual assortment of tools plus the addition of locking pliers. If you often need things to stay put, hands-free, you might want this multi-tool in your pocket or on your belt.
The stainless steel Crunch measures 4″ long closed and 5-1/2″ open. It includes a knife, screwdrivers, and wire cutters, and it also features a hidden hex bit adapter integrated into the adjuster screw. But the real star of the show is the locking pliers — the pliers swing out and the locking mechanism engages in a way that really needs to be seen to be understood — so check it out at Leatherman’s site.
You can get the Crunch for about $55.
