True Utility.
on: June 26, 2022, 03:52:41 PM
I did not set out to specifically collect True Utility gear. With that said, I have a hard time to not buy them when I come across them. Interestingly enough, my city does not offer much in the terms of Multi-tools to come across and buy. True Utility still somehow manages to get carried by a few local retailers on rare occasion, making them one of the few lines I can find locally. Probably explains how I ended up with more then I originally thought I had. Got to love those water proof bonus cases these come in also. So here is an almost complete account of my True Utility mini collection. I know I might have a few more squirrelled away somewhere. Some of these are now discontinued.

Everytime I see them at Kohls I always check them out and tempted to buy them. Even just for the case as I can use them for all sorts of things in my bag.

How’s the quality?

I've picked up an assortment of True Utility tools myself.   Overall, fairly pleased.  Unless I find them, online, the local sources are pretty limited.

True Utility makes a lot of interesting toys that are difficult to pass up when you are looking for a fun purchase.

Great collection, Chako!   :like:

Availability varies by country.  Some of the interesting True Utility gadgets I see posted on the web are not sold in my country (USA).

I’ve had a cash stash and a nail clip from tkmaxx I believe. I’d love to be able to get the utility blade but struggling to source it

I always see those at Kohl's around the holidays but always picked over from the get go and limited selection.  :whistle:
