Hilljak Tuul Multi-Tool

When the Swiss invented their multifunction knife in the 1890s, it was a hit. The Schweizer Offiziersmesser became a symbol of ingenuity and, ultimately, MacGyver. As with any multi-tool – MacGyver endorsed or otherwise – the ideal marriage of design and function isn’t easy to get just right. The Hilljak Tuul has risen to meet the challenge all multi tools must face. Tuul was designed as an alternative to megalithic multi-tools that require pockets the size of your iPad to carry and simpler devices that, while small, take up more space than their utility demands. Crafted from 440C stainless steel encased between two 6063 anodized aluminum panels, TUUL packs robust features into a package that can withstand everyday use, including a rope cutter, two box wrenches, a flat head screwdriver, pry bar, box cutter, and of course a bottle opener. Plus, it fits on your keychain. And it’s easier to pronounce than Schweizer Offiziersmesser.
