The B.A.T. (Bring Anywhere Tool)
« on: November 26, 2016, 05:35:48 PM »
Just saw this Kickstarter project that has apparently raised enough money to get going. It is an interesting concept, but hardly unique and usually not very successful. I look at it as mostly a novelty. I do like the idea of a coin shaped OPT, though. I also like that it looks like the old Burton/Keaton Bat symbol. Problem is going to be the price. I think I saw where they are looking at a $32 price point. I would never spend near that much for this thing. Maybe $10, but even then I think about all the OPTs that can be had for less than $10: Shard, Eat'n Tool, Viva, all the NiteIze tools.

Sorry if this has been discussed before (i did a quick search but saw nothing). I am not affiliated with this company or product at all. Picture was ripped from the Kickstarter page.

It'll never be a Metperial, of course, but one can dream  :rofl:

It's pretty, I'll give it that. Looks like it would tear the bejeebus out of my pocket, which is pretty much by benchmark for 'will it be carried'.

It definitely looks nice but it also seems uncomfortable to hold and use? I'd also wonder what it would feel like if it accidentally dug into my leg.

Some decent functionality there, the coin-style is a great shape for OPT since so much stuff is already adapted for carry them. The addition of 2 cm of sawblade seems ridiculous though and will shred trousers etc. The price is also prohibitive to say the least, I can pick up any of a number of great (used) multitools for that kind of money.

Seems to me the scribe tip is designed at an angle that would be very difficult to use except near the edges.  ???

Well it looks interesting

I can't decide which it would damage most, my clothing or my hands  :think:

It certainly won't be damaging my bank account, that's for sure
