CRKT Spare Tool
« on: April 10, 2011, 01:50:05 PM »
The creation of Mr. Raleigh Tabor is a one-piece tool named Spare Tool. It is just that, backup tool. Spare Tool is a gadget that you EDC without knowing it's there until you need it. Raleigh is the son of Air Force officer, a outdoors enthusiast, hunter and fisher, automotive body mechanic by profession and now retired producer of custom knives. Work for ID Works he understooded as a personal challenge and the result is CRKT Spare Tool.



CRKT Spare Tool is a one-piece tool made of stainless steel 5Cr15MoV. To something, that at first glance looked like a piece of plane iron, was added a set of basic tools that may be needed in many situations and by EDC a Spare Tool you make a useful addition to any kit. CRKT Spare Tool comes with a molded Zytel sheath that has horisontal clip mounted for belt carry. Spare Tool has the following dimensions:

- Length 16cm
- Width 2cm
- Thickness of 2mm
- Weight 45g
- Blade length of 5.5 cm



Spare Tool is surface heat treated on hardness of 55-57 HRC it has wharncliff form of blade, and it is simple plain blade in chisel grind, which is generally characteristic of "working" tool. CRKT Spare Tool has opposite of the blade a pry tool part - or lever that can be used for the extraction of nails, wire stripping, opening a variety of cans and stuck drawers and do all those jobs that keeps your knife blade safe. Immediately behind this is hexagonal slice sizes ¼ "to serve for the attached twosized bit with standard philips and flat end which is located further down the handle in rubberised cutout. Although it’s not so great for recessed screws, however, may well serve for most of the screws that we encounter every day. Between these two slices is a bottle opener. On the spinal part of the handle there is a small indented area that replaces file, and is uniquely capable in its purpose. On both sides there is a ruler, with one in inches and the other in millimeters.



As someone who has worked as a trader in auto parts store, I can easily see all the use-value of backup tool. Oppening cardboard boxes, shredding, unpacking wooden boxes in which parts are delivered using a lever, removing tack, rivets and staples, measurement samples being issued to order parts, wrench and screw various screws, etc. These are all daily jobs for which I often walked up and down so I can broing the right tool because I hadn’t Spare Tool. Looking at this tool, I realized that life just got a little easier.

When listing the details of Raleigh's life, you forgot to mention "Member of Multitool.org."  :D

Everybody who is anybody is a member here:

http://forum.multitool.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2761

In fact, I think many folks would be surprised to see how many designers and marketers for each company is a member here.  I know of quite a few, but I imagine there's probably even more I don't know about.

Amusing story to show how widespread we are:

At SHOT this year I was hanging out with CRKT Designer Glenn Klecker (BTW, if you have kids you have to check out the wooden knife kit!) while he was doing some work for the laser sight company (Crimson Trace) that is his day job.  I got bored while he talked shop with a guy at one booth, and happened to start looking at the booth next door to keep myself amused.  Plus, since there was an attractive lady there, who almost immediately started talking to me, it seemed like a much better place for me to be!  :P  She needed to scan my ID for a prize or contest entry or something, which was fine with me, but the other guy at the booth looked over and saw my Multitool.org shirt.  I was about to explain who and what we were when he started talking about how much he loves our site!  Seems he was looking for a multitool some time ago and found us while searching things on Google, and he spent a lot of time reading the forum and the review on the main site.  This started us up on a pretty good conversation, and eventually Glenn got bored waiting for me and he moved on!

Anyways, in case he's reading this, I'd best mention that the gentleman I was talking to was Doug Pircher from www.internationalsupplies.com and he sells all manner of different things- although no multitools.  Check out his site, and if you see something of interest, drop him a note and let him know he has great taste in multitool sites.

For my part, I just thought it was neat to randomly bump into someone who was that familiar with what we do.  I couldn't help but feel somewhat proud, and it makes me wonder how many other people I didn't bump into are reading this right now!

I used the one i got from the christmas pool yesterday at work. I used it to open the communication rooms door, the pry bar to take out speaker boards that wouldn't budge, and the knife to score plastic corex using a meter stick. Very handy. It has its own place now in my tool bag next to the klein tools.  :D

It doesn't look like much I know, but I really like it.  I've certainly had worse tools in my hands.

I slapped a couple of strips of duct tape on the pointy end so i could put it in my side tool pocket on my work shorts for handy access while using mainly the pry bar. Good news is i didn't puncture my pancreas or small intestine while doing so.

I think keeping a SpareTool in a bag or tool kit is the best way to get around it's awkward shape. It is a tricky thing to comfortably personally carry  :think:
