Xabier Ferro is a creative designer and wood artisan currently based in LA who’s creating awesome daily carry goods as HoboWood. The first release is a seventeen layer thick wood carabiner that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Using oak, walnut, or a combination of the two, each carabiner is created by pressing 17 layers of those woods bonded in a press mold and finished with three hand-rubbed coats of True-oil and wax polish. Functionally, it works like just about every other not-for-climbing-purposes carabiner out there, but this one is a whole helluva lot prettier and, obviously, made out of wood.

In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
