There’s something about a multi-tool attracts my attention, I’m not sure why that is, I’m fairly fussy about what I carry and why I carry them but I can’t deny that I still love to look at them and play with them and wonder at all the things I can do with them.
Usually, they’re folding types but this little multi-tool from Covert Products Group takes a different approach and it looks tough enough to do the job and it doesn’t break any current travel restrictions so you can always have it with you…
So, without further ado, he’s some info from their Kickstarter campaign.
The B.A.T. – A Coin-sized Multi-tool with 10 Functions
The Bring Anywhere Tool (B.A.T.) is slightly bigger than a quarter, can go anywhere (even planes), and lets you cut, open and ignite.
A tool is only useful if you have it when you need it.
This is the big idea behind the smallest 10-function multi-tool on the market: the B.A.T. (Bring Anywhere Tool) from my company Covert Products Group.
The B.A.T. can be carried anywhere since it’s just a little bigger than a quarter, has no moving parts, and is actually usable. It’s the ultimate minimalist multi-tool that lives in your pocket.
The B.A.T. can cut, open, and ignite. Use it for your everyday adventures, to survive, or even to escape.
The B.A.T. makes having “just enough” of a tool easy. I wanted to create the smallest useful tool possible, give it a ton of features, and make it the size and shape of something that just about everyone carries all the time: a coin. Any smaller and you either lose functions or functionality.
It is made of stainless steel and can be safely carried in your pocket alone or with other change. Since it has no exposed sharp edges, you can take it with you just about everywhere, and (unlike many pocketknives) you can use it in public without anyone giving it a second thought.
The B.A.T. has 10 Tools Built-in:
1) Modified Phillips head screwdriver with three prongs so the BAT lays flat in your pocket
2) Safe, semi-sharp captured edge for opening boxes
3) Scribe point or hole punch
4) Small-gauge wire stripper
5) Fire-steel scraper (use it with any ferro rod survival fire starter, Swedish firesteel or similar item)
6) Flat head screwdriver
7) Serrated fire-steel scraper (throws sparks well)
8) 3M SOLAS reflective sticker you can attach to the back for emergency signaling, or leave if off for stealth carry
9) Friction saw that can cut through zip ties or cordage without cutting you
10) Bottle opener
CARRY IT ANYWHERE
The B.A.T. is intended to be carried in your pocket, but it can go on a keychain or necklace, or even be laced into your shoes as a last-ditch survival tool. It does not go against any current TSA restrictions for air travel.
