I’ve seen a lot of comments about the Utili-Key from Swiss-Tech; imagine my surprise, when I went searching through Toolmonger archives for our post on it, to discover that we haven’t written one. So if you’re one of the readers who has suggested the Utili-Key, bear with me — for anyone who hasn’t seen this tool, you might want to take a closer look.
Opinions differ on whether a multi-tool or just-a-knife is better, but Toolmongers all agree that the tool you have with you is better than the tool in the shop at home — thus the pocket knife is one of the most popular tools on this site. And the Utili-Key, a knife that goes on your keyring, will be with you wherever you go. Honestly, where do you go without your keys?
Some will tell you that the Utili-Key even slips through security at the airport. Plus, since it’s so small — key-sized even — you can still carry it when you’re wearing your tight-fitting fashion jeans.
Utili-Key comes in three versions with different features, and only two sport bottle openers — be careful which one you get, lest ye be beerless. Any version will fit a keychain without over-bulking your pockets.
Best of all, the street pricing starts at $7.
