There is probably no way to express your frustrations with the problems when not having the right tool at the right time can cause. This is precisely why a lot of designers bless us with amazing EDC multitools. One such useful multitool is the BitzBlade EDC Keychain and it will save you the effort of going through your toolbox to find the right stuff. Made from a titanium body, this multitool can withstand a lot of punishing uses. The first two noticeable things about it are the swivel keyring and the carbide tip window punch on each end of it. The carbide tip can break tough glass in case of an emergency (we hope you never get to use it) and when you unscrew it, you have the option of adding stainless steel driver bits to it. BitzBlade has 6 double sided driver bits, which means you have 12 different driver types/sizes to use.
One of these bits (you decide which one) can be stored in the tool at all times while the others are carried around in a small pouch. The swivel keyring will let you turn screws without having to flip all the keys around along with the tool. As it is called the BitzBlade, we all expect it to have a blade somewhere in there. And it does. The Keyring side can be screwed off to expose the very sharp 440 stainless steel blade. The blade is 1 3/4 inches long and even has a serrated edge on it for sawing purposes.
The BitzBlade may not be equipped with ten or twenty different functions, but it is a small price to pay for a multitool which is small enough to fit on your keychain. Its overall length measures only 5 inches and weighs less than 3 ounces, so you won’t even know it’s there.
The BitzBlade is currently being crowd-funded on Kickstarter, and even though there is still a lot of time left for the campaign, it is nearing its goal of $15.000 rapidly. The creators have even decided to throw in a cool carabiner if the campaign reaches $50.000. The pre-order price for the basic package is only $49, so get one while it’s still available.
