The best tool is the one you have on you when you need it, and week’s Fix-it Friday features a compact and affordable multi-tool that carries like a pocket knife, making it easy to bring in a pack, clip to your pocket, or hang off your belt loop. The Gerber Crucial packs eight useful features in its 5.5” frame, providing the essential tools for daily tasks, while offering great portability with its size and carry options. Its curved, ergonomic handles open up to needle-nose pliers with a wire cutting section, while themselves neatly tucking away other tools like a partially serrated blade and Philips and flathead screwdrivers. All the stow-away tools are liner-locking for safety during use, and the Crucial’s shapes and curves provide you with grip, comfort, and torque as you use them. A fold-out carabiner clip that can also be used as a bottle opener combines with a standard deep-carry pocket clip, akin to what you might find on a modern pocket folding knife, to keep this multi-tool within reach when you need it the most.
