- Meets the TSA regulations for permittable carry-on
- Comes with all the tools you'll need while you travel
- Beautifully sized; compact and lightweight
No knife blade; and the screwdriver is semi-functional.
Features: This is the multi-tool you'll want if you spend a lot of time on airplanes. The fact that it has no knife blade means you can bring it through TSA security, but it comes with 8 tools (spring-action needlenose pliers, spring-action regular pliers, spring-action wire cutters, spring action scissors, Flat/Phillips screwdriver, tweezers, nail file, and carabiner/bottle opener) that will serve you well on your travels.
The screwdriver may not be the most reliable of tools, but the rest of the features can handle daily use on your trip. You have everything you need to enjoy your travels (bottle opener, wink wink), and you can bring the knife with you wherever you go. The glass-filed nylon handle is lightweight and durable, and the stainless steel is resistant to both rust and scratches. The ergonomic design and one-handed operation makes it a very useful little tool.
Price: $24 is a bit of a high price to pay for a tool small enough to hang on a keychain, but it's worth it if you travel often and find yourself in need of tools when on the go.
