Knifeless or No Knife EDC Multi-Tools
« on: January 23, 2013, 09:30:01 PM »
Hey,

I just want to post a review about Knifeless EDC multi-tool solutions.  I made this video review about EDC solutions for situations where no knives are allowed, or "weapons" are not allowed:
 
EDC for Travel and International Laws, for schools, college, University, K-12  (High Schools, Junior High), Kids, Children;  or for Concerts and Theme Parks;  for legal reasons (Felony/Felons);  or for jobs (Court, County, and Teacher)

I hope it is helpful to some people!

Hi ank218. Welcome to the boards! I hope you'll take a minute to drop into the New Member Forum and say hello.

Thanks for the video, both making and posting.

I got a leatherman Style PS some months back because I knew I was taking a plane trip. It was scrutinized but not seized in both airport security locations I passed through. The little scissors worked surprisingly well and were an adequate replacement for a small blade in box opening and similar tasks.

I also did a recent (very simple) mod to a Leatherman Wingman to replace the blade with a file, to pass on the a 10 year old boy. Here's a link to that thread...
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,42389.0.html

There was also another member, barryj323, who made what seems to be a U.K. legal mod combining Sidekick and Wingman parts. here's the thread on that...
http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,42433.0.html

Finally, I would also point out the Victorinox 'Jetsetter' line, 58mm bladeless multitools.

I'm sure there are a number of other mods and production tools discussed on the forum here, but these are just the things that spring immediately to mind.

Come hang out for a while, read some stuff, and jump right in to the discussion! And again, thanks for the video!

Welcome to the forum, and nice vid mate  :tu:

I'm in England, so I can fall under the locking blade restriction (unless I have good reason for carrying one). There are many locking tools I carry such as the Victorinox Spirit, Gerber MP700 etc etc etc ... but I do like a good knifeless tool too.

One of the reasons I like knifeless tools so much is NOT due to legal restrictions. I don't find multitool blades particularly ergonomic, and prefer to carry a dedicated folder - either a traditional pocket knife or something like a Byrd Tern. This means I have a free slot in my multitool for another tool  :D :D :D Another couple of smaller knifeless tools I like are the IDL T5 and T7 - very similar principle to the Swisstech you hyave, but I prefer the pliers on the IDLs  :)

A few people here have actually modified their tools to knifeless too. A few of us Brits have modded Gerber MP400s, and several people have done similar with SOG multitools too

Here's a little something I knocked up earlier  ;)

Hey 50ft... I can't hear you over the ORANGE!!!! :D

I bet that tool isn't hard to find, huh? Is that the standard Orange Fuse?

LOL knocked up earlier!!!

Al, that looks fantastic  :drool: almost too good to use  :ahhh
But, I'm pretty sure it didn't come about during a coffee break.

How many hours?? How many favours ??

Come, tell

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

Once I'd got all the parts in, not that long at all. I went round to Farmmans for a couple of hours. Borrowed his Dremel to tweak a couple of Kick clips for spanners, a few cups of coffee and a general natter ... oh, and I borrowed his Crunch for the plier pivots
