Got me to thinking about Tool Logic once again.
Taken from their website here....http://www.sogshopping.com/
Will you be prepared?
Will you have at the ready a powerful LED light for illumination or signaling? Will you have a sharp serrated blade in case you need it? How about an emergency window punch? Or just a tweezer, screw driver or emergency ball point pen?
You don’t know what life will hit you with today, but you’re not about to cart around a tool kit and backpack just in case.
That’s why there is Tool Logic®. The highest quality line of innovative compact tools, knives and flashlights available today.
From credit-card sized multi-tools that offer a range of options from an LED light to a blade to a screw-driver all the way up to a compact rescue folding knife that features a window-punch and a signal whistle, Tool Logic is manufactured tough, with the highest-quality materials to be ready when you need it.
Because you don’t know what life will throw at you today, but Tool Logic will be there - Built For Life™.
For me, Tool Logic epitomized credit card multi-tools. Do not get me wrong, Victorinox makes an excellent credit card tool, but Tool Logic innovates this category by giving you an honest to goodness useful blade other than a small paper opener. Yeah, I am a big fan of Tool Logic credit card MTs.
The only non credit card Mt I have is their SL6 Rescue tool. I didn't even know they produced the SL Pliers until today. I guess I may have to look at their other products sooner than later.
Either way, here are the credit card MTs that i do currently have. Here goes...
A group shot.
One of my favorites is the aptly named Office Assistant. This double thickness office tool packs quite a lot into a small frame. You get a very comfortable pair of small scissors, a small dual flathead and Phillips glass screwdriver combo tool, a removable pen, an ingenious hole punch and a small stapler. The hole punch and stapler are useable whilst the tools are stored away in their respective spots. You also get a small measuring tape, and a staple remover that folds in and out. If that wasn't enough, whatever unused space is utilized for a paper clip storage compartment. There is no wasted space on the Office Assistant.
Next, is a Tool Logic Tool Lite. Unfortunately, my copy is missing the light cap. This card MT features a very large and comfortable serrated blade, tweezers and toothpick, LED light, and a can opener/flat driver tool.
This is the Tool Logic Tool Lite Deluxe. The Deluxe changed quite a lot from the regular Tool Lite version above. Note that the blade is smaller to make room for the swing out scissors. That small black square above the scissors is the built in locking mechanism. The scissors are spring loaded. The usual tweezers and toothpick are evident, as well as the loss of the can opener for a combo mini sharp blade/diamond file/flat head driver/wire stripper? To top it all off, a red LED that doesn't throw much light.
You could also get the standard Tool Logic card MT which features a magnifying glass/compass instead of a not very bright LED light. All other features are the same.
This one is a duplicate minus the US patent markings of the above tool. My guess, this is a newer copy.
Tool Logic also produced a more survivor oriented card MT. Not to say that the above wouldn't come in handy when the smurf hits the fan, but these following tools have a few more specific features that will help you.
The Tool Logic Survival I card features the same magnifier/compass as the non lite version above. However the knife blade is quite different, and would make it easier to lash it to a stick to make an improvised spear. Not to mention the blade with its dual finger grooves is secure and comfortable to use. This time around, a built in whistle occupied the space of the removable can opener in the above models. Likewise, the tweezers have been upgraded from plastic to metal. The toothpick is also longer. On the bottom is a built in fire starter. Note that the partially serrated blade has two larger grooves that fit the fire steel perfectly. Not a bad little card tool all in all.
Here is a variation on the same theme, this time marketed by Eddie Bauer. This is the Survival II card that replaces the magnifier/compass for an LED light. You can see the fire steel a lot better in this photograph.
Last but not least of the card MT models I have, is this feature packed TI Business Card. This tool packs a small pair of scissors, a letter opener, a nail grooming tool, a pen, a removable sewing needle, glass flat and Phillips drivers, and a metal tweezer, and what isn't shown on this photo because I missed it, a toothpick.
