MetMo Pocket Driver & Multi Drive

Read More

MetMo blasted an email my way, asking if I’d take a gander at their latest concoction. They’ve christened it the Multi Drive—a multi-tool masquerading as a marking tool. This cunning little gadget morphs into a knife, pencil, scribe, drill, file, and even a micro driver.

It’s strutting its stuff on Kickstarter, and you can throw your cash at it here.

But the plot thickens: MetMo didn’t send me a Multi Drive. Oh no, they sent me a Pocket Driver (see above for the eye candy). And let me tell you, I’m grateful they did. The Pocket Driver is less of a tool and more of a desktop diversion—a ratchet driver that moonlights as a fidget spinner. Precision-machined and aesthetically pleasing, but don’t mistake it for a workhorse. It’s just too damned pretty for that… and way too addictive to fiddle with.

Is it worth $130? Probably not to most… but it’s one hell of a gift for the right kind of lunatic and if you judge it by its craftsmanship alone, you can justify the price easily. Tool, fidget toy, art… take your pic I guess…

You don’t need fuel, you just need a charge… and then, you have fire. This thing actually works pretty well.

Vosteed Corgi Flipper

Small and well designed, but not made of particularly great materials… and, as a result, it’s pretty damned cheap. The Costeed Corgi is approachable.

It’s a pocket clip for your keys… AND, a little folder. Pretty neat design.

The Invictus ATSP

Terrain 365 and Prometheus Design Werx did a collaboration on a folder. The result is super slim, super handsome, and pretty damned expensive. I just have a hard time justifying $379 on something you tend to beat the shit out of… But, I love the design work.

Nitecore TINI 2

Pictures don’t do the tiny size of this thing justice. Plus, it’s crazy bright (500 Lumens) and the rechargeable battery (USB-C) lasts over two and a half hours when it’s set to mid-power.

Windler Multitool

These guys are a utility blade holder away from me laying down my cold hard cash for this setup… I just think the modular utility of this system is brilliant. Want a blade and a flathead? No sweat. No need for the flathead and would rather daily a Phillips or a hex key or even a wax comb? They got you…

Just brilliant.

I don’t particularly care for the aesthetic… But it’s hard to argue against the functionality of this little keychain tool.
