14 of the best pocket tools and wallet tools around
We all know that tools are an essential part of everyday life. You need them for all sorts of tasks. However, all too often you either don’t have them on you or you have the wrong tool, and let’s be honest we don’t all have vans packed full of every tool known to man. Sometimes you just need just one pocket or wallet sized tool that can take on a range of tasks. Something that is small enough to carry, but strong enough to work.
In this post, we delve into the world of pocket tools and wallet tools, where we will attempt to unearth some of the coolest pocket tools around. Looking at their usefulness, aesthetics, functionality and price also.
So, here are the tools in question . . .
Yeah this is cool. 26 tools in 1. What we like about this tool is that it has a number of tools, which you just don’t find on many others multi-tools. Take for instance the protractor or nail puller. Both really useful tools that you just don’t see often.
This multi-tool is slick and just the size of a credit card. It’s got some brilliant and unusual tools.

Who doesn’t like a bit of carbon fibre? The C6 Spanner from Touch of Ginger is a really neat tool. It not only looks the part, but acts it too.

CRKT Viva – £9.95
A design from the brilliant Liong Mah in collaboration with CRKT, this multi-tool is just under 4 inches in length yet includes a range of tools from a flathead screwdriver, pry bar, bottle opener and 5 different sizes of hex wrenches. Another really cool feature is that it includes a loop which allows the tool be easily carried on your trousers, and adds a bit of bulk to the tool for added grip whilst being used.
Boker Plus Hawkit – £21.95
Some of you may say that this isn’t a wallet or pocket tool, you are probably right. However that being said why can’t it be? It’s genius and there are so many cool functions for this tool. It not only has an axe head, it has a pry bar, nail puller, bottle opener and hex wrench. It looks awesome, it does the job needed, then it could keep going. Simply brilliant.
An absolute steal for the price. 10 different tools go into this multi-tool making it highly useful. Not just useful indoors either!

A less serious design on this one, but no less useful. We chose this tool because not only is it highly functional it is also a bit of fun. You get a screwdriver, 4 sized hex wrench, bottle opener and a seatbelt cutter. Everyday tools in a simple everyday carry package.

If you like something a bit more sci-fi and maybe a little futuristic then this could be the ideal pocket tool for you. It just so unique and different with more tools than you could imagine at first glance. Nearly every side on this multi-tool has a different use.

It’s always nice to be given a choice right?
Not strictly a pocket tool or a wallet tool but it is just so simple we had to include it. No matter where you are you can open a bottle. If you’ve got a weave of paracord with you then maybe this is the ideal tool for you.
