The Scorpion 12-in-1 Multi-Tool – An Ultralight Essential
We’d make the argument that everyone needs a multi-tool in their life. When you need a screwdriver, a bottle opener at a tailgate, a knife to slice open boxes, a prybar for that sticky paint can lid, or a wrench to tighten a nut, it’s easier to have all your tools in one convenient, compact place. However, not everyone wants to cart around a heavy Swiss Army knife. This Scorpion Multi-Tool gives you the complete package and is compact and light enough to throw on your keychain or toss in the pocket of your work shirt. An American design inspired by ingenuity and the need for toolset fit for any situation, the Scorpion belongs with you all the time.
Tools of the Trade
Before we talk about the 12 phenomenal features on this stainless steel multi-tool, we have to talk about its compactness. Thin enough to store in your wallet, and only 4 inches long and 2.5 inches wide, there’s no excuse not to carry the Scorpion with you in your pocket or on your keys. It’s lighter than a standard keychain, so it won’t weigh you down. Its slight weight and durability are thanks in part to its 420-grade stainless steel. This grade of stainless steel is rust-resistant, strong, and effective.
However, the included toolset is the real highlight. The Scorpion incorporates your expected tools like a serrated blade, a bottle opener, a flathead screwdriver, and a Phillips head screwdriver. However, this innovative multi-tool also includes some unexpected handy helpers, like a pry bar, a cord-cutter, a wing nut key, a scraper blade, and a headphone wrap. Plus, four hex wrenches are running down the center, including ½, a ⅜, a 5⁄16, and ¼-inch options. That’s a feature you won’t find on any run-of-the-mill multi-tool.
Why We Love It
There’s nothing that can beat the compactness, light weight, and versatility of this credit card-thin multi-tool. For the price of a single tool at the hardware store, you have access to hex wrenches, knives, screwdrivers, prybars, and more in the palm of your hand. This multi-tool easily attaches to a keychain or bag and fits neatly into your pocket for quick help at work.
How to Buy
At $18.50, you can’t beat the price of this lightweight tool. (Take note — the manufacturer prices it at $17, but they’re currently sold out with no future availability listed.) It’s available online through boutique sellers, but sells out quickly, especially around the holidays. Get yours before they’re gone again!
