Whether you're looking for something a bit more fashionable than a standard multi-tool or simply want to brag about the name, Porsche Design Knives ($210) are a decent option. Built by Wenger, the same chaps who make the Swiss Army Knife, these multi-function tools include nail files, bottle openers, corkscrews, scissors, and, of course, knives, all encased in a curved, organic handle. Should look great with that 911 GT2 RS you've had your eye on.
Meet the iPod shuffle of multi-tools. The Leatherman Style CS ($20) is a pocket-friendly (or clip-on) multi-tool offering a ton of utility in a tiny package. Tools include scissors, a knife, nail file, flat/phillips screwdriver, tweezers, and a handy carabiner clip that doubles as a bottle opener. No silly proprietary charging/sync cable required.
Thanks to the folks at Leatherman, who are partying all weekend for Uncrate's 5th birthday, we've got 50 of these tiny bad boys to give away. The first 50 guys to send us their shipping address get one. All gone (in 4 minutes)!
Made in England from solid stainless steel and sporting a no-nonsense look, the British Army Knife ($27-$32) is a fine pocket blade. Available in both two- and three-bladed versions, each one has a 2.25-inch straight blade and a hooked blade that serves as a can opener, while the three-bladed model also holds a pointed marlinspike on the opposite side to help with seafarers' rope work.
