Designers and industries are focusing more and more on creating everyday multi-purpose tools that can fit into people’s pockets, wallets, or that attach to keychains. Another example of such tool is The Fat Fly Micro Titanium Multi-Tool. If you’ve heard of the Fly Pry, this tool is its bigger and more functional cousin. This new tool is made from titanium and it’s hand ground in the USA. It’s small enough to use as a zipper pull but it also works as a bottle opener, can opener, pry bar and more.
