Garrett Wade has been unearthing, designing or reproducing unique tools that you just won’t find anywhere else for more than a few decades. Their latest, the “Beautiful Brass Capsule Multi-Tool”, checks all the boxes a tool should check in terms of being properly named, and it is actually quite beautiful. More to the point though, the 3 ¼” long and 11/16″ wide capsule contains five different tool bits and is based on a vintage design they discovered at a flea market in London. Unscrew the capsule in the middle to remove any or all of these five tools: flat / phillips head screwdrivers, pull hook knife, drill big/gimlet or corkscrew. Take your tool of choice, slide it into the reinforced brass slot in the capsule and reassemble the capsule around it to create a handle. Since it weighs less than three ounces it’s one of those multi-tools you can throw in a pocket or bag and carry it every day.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
