If you’re looking for a beautifully crafted multi-tool for yourself or as a gift you need to check out the Beautiful Brass Capsule Multi-Tool ($38). Several years ago the company discovered an early version of this clever little vintage pocket multi-tool at a flea market in London. They liked it so much they decided to produce an updated version. The case is solid Brass, with 5 handy pocket tools made from assorted steels. Just unscrew the two halves at the knurled center joint, select one of the five steel tools inside, slide it into the reinforced brass slot, reassemble the halves, and put to work. The two halves of the capsule act as a handle. It takes just seconds, and really couldn’t be simpler.
Beautifully made and elegant, it’s a true EDC multi-tool, and, at just over 3″ long and less than 3 oz., it slips easily into a pocket or purse (leather wallet shown in the image is not included). This is a great gift for yourself or anyone on your list, year round.
