Like most things James Brand, this little fixed blade is beautifully designed and made in China. From a materials standpoint, there is nothing to write home about. From a usability standpoint, there isn’t much either. BUT, again, it’s just damned pretty.
The end game in “Leatherman style” multi-tools is the ability to pick and choose which tools are onboard. Doing so allows you to create an optimized tool to your needs so you are carrying exactly what you need and nothing that you don’t.
GOAT is trying to provide exactly that and early reviews are VERY good.
“Hey, that Nitecore with the pocket folder form factor is cool, but I want something smaller to supplement the light on my phone. Something rechargeable. Any suggestions?”
Have a look at the Nitecore Tiki LE. It’s 300 lumens, rechargeable, and smaller than a AAA battery. They aren’t usb-c, but whatever man… It’s a $20 torch.
Oh… and I’m not paid by Nitecore or anything. It just so happens that this torch is made by them as well. I don’t have any experience with it, but the reviews hold up.
