I was randomly going to Amazon last week; I don’t really know why I was going there.
One of the features of the home page is various marketing stuff… one caught my eye.

Ever since I joined Amazon I gave up carrying my Leatherman tool
on my belt. It’s against the rules to have a knife at work. I’m sure I can justify it enough not to get my sorry ass fired. But why the hell should ever go there?
So I need some simple tools with me. If nothing else than to open a bottle.

So I ordered the Gerber Shard keychain tool. The nice thing is that they claim that this is not against the TSA rules, so I can even travel with this thing without me getting shot by airport security.
I have to say that it seems to get the job done in a small space. They claim seven tools; some are a stretch.
Here’s what I see in order of importance:
- Bottle opener
- Philips driver
- Small and…
- Bit slotted drivers
- A pry-bar
- Janky wire strippers
They count a lanyard hole in addition. If anything what this adds is less weight.
Not bad for less that $7.
I was about to throw away the packaging and noticed an extra logo: Fiskars. Like I said when I got the mower, I’m a Fiskars fan. I’ve never been let down by them. Color me surprised though… though I suppose it’s two brands that I trust getting together.
