The world’s tiniest bottle opener and multitool is deceptively small

The TiBO is small enough to be underestimated. Roughly the size of your thumbnail, it’s easy to dismiss the TiBO as something that’s too small to be useful… but it’s also a wildly inaccurate thing to do, because at just 21.5mm in length, the TiBO is the smallest multitool, packing a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and a prybar into its deceptively tiny footprint.Conceived in 2016, the TiBO went through its share of design iterations before it reached what it looks like today. Optimized ...

The Union is hands-down the most versatile pocket-toolkit I’ve seen

If your question is ‘how many tools in a multitool is too many tools?’, let me tell you, that answer changes practically every month. Each time I see a new multitool EDC, I’m convinced that there’s no such thing as too many tools as long as the device remains portable. However, I’m now convinced that we’ve reached what I call “peak multitool”, and there’s no getting better or moving forward from here. The Union by Toler Tools is a pocket-sized product that puts tools into your pocket that you ...

This handy piece of limited-edition EDC is made entirely from Damascus Steel!

Barring the pivot and the two screws that hold the handle and blade together, the Boker Merlin is entirely made from the legendary marbled metal. Created as a special edition, the variant is based off one of Boker’s classic designs by Wilfried Gorski. Partnering with Chad Nichols, a trained steel-smith who’s perfected the art of making corrosion-resistant Damascus Steel, Boker spared quite literally no effort by building every component of the knife from the marbled metal, right from the blade t...

We’re in awe of the TOPS Quickie Karambit’s slender, functional design

Form follows function, as the saying goes, right? The Quickie Karambit by TOPS exploits that adage in a way that gives it quite a visual advantage. Unlike most knives with thick, grippable grips and long, sharp blades, the Quickie keeps things short and sweet. The Quickie doesn’t give you a handle to grip onto, but rather fills the negative space of your hand when you close your fingers into a fist. This gives you a sense of comfort as you hold the blade, while also resulting in a karambit that’...

The Prylobite fits all your EDC-needs into one package

At first glance, you’d ask yourself why the Prylobite looks the way it does. It features a full-tang blade that swivels into the handle in such a way that the opposite end of the blade sticks out when shut. You’re bound to question its appearance, but that feeling lasts only a minute. When you begin using the Prylobite, you appreciate and acknowledge its appearance and the functionality it brings to the table, or in this case, your fingertips. You see, the Prylobite is a knife, but it isn’t ju...

The Behemoth is a small and sharp kiridashi capable of big tasks

I believe the term ‘one of a kind’ is the most appropriate to describe Det Tidkun’s work because he only makes one prototype of each of his knives. Made as a super-limited-edition, the Behemoth is one of Tidkun’s many knife designs that get showcased and finally sold on his Etsy page under the moniker Ironbone knives. A craftsman from Thailand, Tidkun makes all his knives by hand, only using power tools to craft and grind billets of steel down to the final product.The Behemoth is one of Tidkun’s...

The James Brand Damascus Chapter Knife looks literally and figuratively ‘sharp’

The Chapter remains perhaps one of my most favorite knives ever. This is in part because they’re designed by The James Brand, a company that gets that sharp knives don’t need to look aggressive or tactical, and that they can channel a much more dapper aesthetic. Their knives sport a much more classy, urbane design language, and look like something a secret spy like James Bond would carry in his tuxedo (that’s not why the company is called James Brand, but it would make a great story).The Chapter...

This kiridashi’s beauty lies in its unconventional design

While most purists would claim that the Engineer Kiridashi is in fact, a tanto-style blade rather than a kiridashi blade, it forms a part of Det Tidkun’s series of handmade kiridashis. Tidkun, a Thailand based knife designer (known as Ironbone Knives on Etsy) often creates these marvelous beauties by hand, relying on power tools only when absolutely necessary.The knives are all made from SKD11 Steel, a tool steel that is known for its strength and ability to hold its sharpness for longer than tr...

The pocket knife that slides into your wallet

If you’re the kind of person who’s enthusiastic about EDC, but not the kind of person to carry much around with you, the Lynx fits in that exact niche. The size and shape of a credit card, the Lynx by JHO Knives slips right into your minimalist wallet or card holder.

From lighter to heavy-duty igniter

Soto’s Pocket Torch turns your regular disposable lighter into a pretty serious blowtorch that burns at anywhere north of 2300°F. Simply designed to be a casing for your regular lighter (the cheap rectangular kind that come in packs of 10s, not any novelty lighter), the Pocket Torch creates a strong, wind-resistant, directional flame, great for pointing at objects you wish to ignite. The Pocket Torch even extends a lighter’s lifespan by 60%, and at just 0.3 ounces, is a must-have for camping tri...

The YD Guide to Pocket Knife Design

We’ve covered quite a few EDC knives over the years without realizing that there’s no resource that guides you through the types of knives. Knife blades have evolved from culture and from need. Some knives are designed for everyday tasks, some for rough outdoor use, some for hunting, and some for combat/self-defence. Each blade design has a distinct silhouette, and has developed over the years based on need and on use. Knife materials have evolved over time too, ranging from the various alloys o...

The world’s smallest electric multi-tool is the size of a ballpoint pen

Imagine having an entire toolkit in your stationery box, or better still, in your front pocket. That’s pretty much what the Wowstick is gunning for. The pen-shaped, pen-sized rotary-tool works as an electric screwdriver, allowing you to tighten or loosen screws at the press of a button. With literally two buttons to choose from, you can rotate the head of the Wowstick either clockwise or anti-clockwise. A set of 58 bits and tool-heads gives you immense power and flexibility, letting you work m...

The world’s smallest, most versatile multitool can sit on your fingertip

The first time you lay eyes on the Claw, it’s bafflingly small. What’s more baffling, however, is its incredibly vast feature list. It opens bottles and jars, unscrews screws, cuts open taped boxes, undoes staples, works as a flint-scraper, and acts as a tiny, nifty, jimmying tool. By design, it fits all those features into a frame that’s basically the size of your thumbnail, and by construction, it does so tirelessly, because the Claw is made entirely from titanium.At less than an inch long, ...

Manmower: The wacky, innovative stubble shaver inspired by the lawnmower!

The Manmower is one of those absolutely ludicrous products that’s also sheer genius. Conceptually, it’s a lawnmower for your jawline. An internal blade slices away at your facial hair, leaving just a casual, badass stubble behind, just like the lawnmower slices the grass in your lawn to a short, uniform length. The Manmower needs no electricity, no shaving cream, no water, and no prep. Just pull it out of your pocket and roll it across your jawline (you could practically do this in public too) a...

The power of a samurai sword in your pocket!

We’ve been pretty interested in this phenomenon called Damascus Steel (you can read our editorial on the beautiful, marbled metal here) over the past few months. Imagine having the properties of multiple steel alloys in one single sheet of steel, and along with that, you get an absolutely hypnotic marble-effect on the surface of a metal. That’s Damascus Steel. The steel is a specially formulated sheet that incorporates different alloys with different iron and carbon ratios into one single sheet,...

The James Brand Elko is the benchmark for great EDC

The Elko is a small, unassuming piece of metal that’s no bigger than your key. In fact, if you look at the picture above, it’s barely longer than the width of your smartphone. It’ll easily fit on your keyring, becoming something you’ll always have with you, right in your pocket. That very quality of it makes the Elko a stellar piece of everyday carry, because it’s literally something you’ll unassumingly carry every day. What does this tiny piece of metal do?

Nitecore NTK10: The X-acto knife’s bad-boy cousin

Nitecore makes some stunning flashlights, but ever so often, it makes some mean EDC gear too. Take for instance the NTK10, quite literally a mean piece of EDC, with its anthropomorphized bottle-opener that looks like the jaws of a vicious predator.Machined entirely from high-grade titanium, the NTK10 comes with an OLFA CKB-2 blade on the inside that makes for a perfect multi-purpose knife, with its long body and 30° slant, allowing you to use it for slicing, slashing, carving, piercing, and even...

The future of EDC is slim and sleek too

Face it, we’ve got slim TVs, slim phones, slim tablets, slim laptops, all because processors are getting more and more compact, and microchips are now at a thickness that can only be measured in nanometers. That trend is bound to spill over into the rest of our lives too, right? Imagine the dissonance of having to carry a phone that’s 7mm thick, and then an absolutely overloaded wallet that’s practically near 2 centimeters in thickness.Truly a wallet of the 21st century, the Turner Wallet from...

Owl be there for you!

It’s rare that EDC or multitools get described as cute, so the Owl Bits is a rare, lovable case-study in ‘cute multi-tool design’.The bird-inspired form comes with two wings and big eyes that serve as hinges for said wings. Open the wings out and you’ve got yourself a screw-driver that’s easy to rotate, thanks to its perpendicular grip. The wings come with multiple screw-bits inside them that can easily be removed and docked in place where you’d imagine the owl’s feet to be.Crafted from stainles...

Demystifying Damascus Steel: The beautifully marbled metal

If you want to spot a true EDC enthusiast, gauge their reaction upon saying the words Damascus Steel. Chances are, if they’re a true-blue everyday carry aficionado, even so much as taking the name of the marbled metal will send chills down their spine, and rightfully so… because Damascus Steel is an exquisite metal that’s not just strong, it’s a pleasure to look at, with its wonderful, organic pattern. So, let’s delve deeper into the origins of this steel, the way it’s made, and honestly, how di...

EDC that’s no bigger than a dollar coin

Circular, and virtually the same size as a coin, the Eclipse can be carried anywhere and everywhere, allowing you to have a blade handy for both outdoor activities as well as indoor applications.Eclipse’s blade features an inventive deploying technique that has it sliding outwards using parallel linkages. This prevents the blade’s edge from ever coming in contact with your hand, allowing for safe, one-handed deployment. The ...

This titanium multitool nails the basics

The James Brand was established for the pure reason that there are some problems that involve getting your hands dirty.

Striking a perfect balance between work and play, want and need, the Multitool Fidget Spinner is weird in a way that makes us like it.

An immortal titanium pencil for your immortal ideas

It’s been around for almost half a millennium now, and the pencil is still going strong. Even today, the most commonly used ones come with a graphite nib encased in wood, with the exception of the mechanical pencil, a much more recent innovation that allows you to extrude a graphite lead by clicking a button… but no matter how far we progress as a species, the humble pencil is always our go-to for ideating, sketching, scribbling, doodling, and noting. The Magno Ti turns that humble 500-year-ol...

Most multitools overdo it. The Kershaw Pub is just right.

The Kershaw Pub is a knife first and foremost, but it’s a multitool too. Its unique design makes you notice the knife aspect of it first, before you grasp that it’s more than just a knife, and that’s worth appreciating. Designed with a blade and a swiveling sheath, the Kershaw Pub (yes, it’s built to be the perfect pub EDC) reveals a bottle-opener comes with a rather rustic yet beautiful looking sheepsfoot blade with a stone-washed finish at one end, and a bottle opener and screw-driver at the...
