Switch Blade (and Screwdriver) Symphony – Modular Multi-Tool

Now – I like a multi-tool as much as anyone.

You remember my pieces about the Guppy, Swiss Army Knife and even the Swissarmius? Although the latter isn’t really a multi-tool as such 😉

The Switch gives you pretty much everything you could ever want to shove in your pocket but then gives you the choice of what to bring out with you.

You see, the Switch is a modular knife. You pick the tools, put them together and close it all shut with a coin or another multi-tool attachment.

You get:

  • Two body covers for encasing the tool attachments.
  • Two slotted caps to hold the tool together, which can be removed with the twist of a quarter to disassemble the unit.
  • Three interior axle assemblies – small (2-6 tools), medium (4-10 tools), and large (7-13 tools) — which can be swapped in and out depending on your desired tool width.
  • 18 tool attachments: Standard Knife, Pliers, Scissors, Nail File, Tweezers, Thin Flathead Screwdriver, Phillips-Head Screwdriver, Eyeglass Phillips-Head Screwdriver, Eyeglass Flathead Screwdriver, Wood Saw, Serrated Blade, Corkscrew, Combination Bottle Opener/Flathead Screwdriver, Combination Can Opener/Wire Stripper, Pen, Magnifying Glass, LED Flashlight, 1GB USB Memory Stick.

The knife is available for pre-order for $68 but it will go up to $79 after the pre-sale.

I like the idea that you can take off the blade and just carry the smaller bits – but, knowing my luck, I’ll leave that bit behind for getting stones out of horses hooves just when my pony is lamed by gravel!
