My everyday carry
Service Tech/Road Manager in Bay Area/San Francisco, CA
Both my Spyderco & Gerber knives are priceless & used heavily nearly everyday for cutting who knows what free from under cars. The keygrip make my key carry bulletproof & the iamakey has all my schedules, training docs, hardware assignments, etc. The handmade leather pouch (for cash & cards) was something I picked up on a road trip through New Mexico. I chose items with some weight to them so I’ll know when they aren’t there & stuff I know will take a drop & not shatter.
Back to work…
All too often, pocket multitools either try to do way too much or simply not enough to justify carrying one. There's the 25-in-1 tool without a single usable feature, or the overbuilt hunk of metal that only opens bottles. But BIGiDESIGN's new Kickstarter project, the Titanium Pocket Tool (TPT), shows plenty of promise. It balances size, functionality, and aesthetics often sacrificed for an exhausting list of features.
The TPT's small enough for keychain or coin pocket carry, yet big enough to give you a solid grip on it. Each tool packs in 15 wrench sizes, a bottle opener, a hex bit driver, and a flathead screwdriver/pry bar—all while maintaining excellent ergonomics. A hidden magnet in its central slot holds two types of inserts in place. You can configure the TPT with a double-sided, finger-safe box opener/camping fork or a standard utility blade.
Best of all, the TPT's grade 5 titanium construction allows it to stay small, rigid, and durable enough for daily use while carrying as slim as just a pair of house keys. See the Titanium Pocket Tool's unique design in action and pledge for your own on Kickstarter.
