Among the lightest and most compact multitools ever developed, the Swiss+Tech Utili-Key 6-In-1 is lightweight, durable, and always with you.
Larger multitools like the Victorinox SwissTool X are superb multitools and they perform their various tasks better than the Utili-Keys would, but they are large enough that most people do not carry them on a daily basis. If your large multitool is not with you when you need it, then how useful is it to you?
While they are not intended to replace a standard multitool, miniature multitools like the Utili-Keys definitely have their place because they are small enough that they are always with you. The Utili-Key is almost identical in size to a Defender ignition key.
The Utili-Key is substantially smaller than most modern automobile keys with integral alarm controls like this Discovery Series II key.
Wherever you take your keys (and for most people that is everywhere), the Utili-Key is there.
The Utili-Key's patented, quick-release design easily snaps to your key ring. The Utili-Key features a spring detent in the closed position and will not release unless you intended for it to release.
The Utili-Key also features spring detents in the 90-degree and 180-degree positions.
The Utili-Key 6-In-1 makes minor repairs, installations, and hundreds of everyday jobs an easy undertaking. The Utili-Key 6-In-1 is so named because it features six different tools, including a (1) Micro Slotted Eyeglass Screwdriver suited for tightening eyeglass frames,:
a (2) #1 Slotted Screwdriver,:
a (3) Bottle Opener,:
a (4) #1 Phillips Screwdriver,:
a (5) Serrated Knife Blade,:
and a (6) Straight Knife Blade:
Opening the Utili-Key 6-In-1 exposes the serrated and straight cutting blades:
When closed, the Utili-Key 6-In-1's cutting edges are not exposed.
The Utili-Key 6-In-1 features a groove opposite the cutting edges. The cutting edges snap into this groove and prevent the cutting edges from cutting anything.
When the Utili-Key 6-In-1 is closed, it cannot cut anything.
If you want a larger multitool to supplement your Utili-Key or Utili-Key XT, then the Victorinox SwissTool RS is available. The SwissTool X is a beautifully crafted multitool that has been designed with maximum ergonomics and utility in mind. Individual tools can be opened from the outside of the handle without having to open the pliers, while individual springs hold the other tools in place. Opening one tool does not splay open the adjacent tools, and each and every tool positively locks into place when opened fully. To close, simply slide the release button to fold the tool away. The various SwissTools from Victorinox are our favorite full-sized multitools.
Whatever cutlery you own or carry, keep it razor sharp with the Edge Pro Sharpening System. The Edge Pro gives your cutlery a precision edge that cannot be achieved using other sharpening methods. Bevel angles are adjustable from a steep 35° to a razor-thin 10°. The effort to resharpen an Edge Pro'd knife is considerably less than with any other sharpening system, and the amount of material removed to achieve a razor-sharp edge is dramatically reduced compared to conventional sharpening systems. Edge Pro edges are even, exact, and free of burrs, consistently, quickly, and easily every time. There is no better way to sharpen your cutlery.
