OPMT with line cutter
« on: February 02, 2021, 07:02:20 PM »
Hi guys

Currently looking for a replacement for the CRKT KERT - its pretty much perfect for my needs with the one issue of the bottle opener sometimes catching on things. I have even been on planes with it.
I was hoping for suggestions from peopel here if possible. I also tried a SHARKEY from Tru utility but I found the line cutter pour and the flat heads a bit bulky

So my requirments are
1) line or strap
2) no knife blade such as on the boker plus or toucan
3) at least a flat head (ideal if the head is thin enough to work on the side for philips)
4) 1/4 hex bit hole
5) under 15 quid
6) pry ability is nice but not at the expensive of excessive thickness
7) looks people friendly (sorry MACV SOG), ideal would be flight safe
8) idealy a fairly slim profile that would ride well on a key chain and not stab me !!

As usual any help and suggestions are appreciated even if it is stick with the KERT

One of our members here has a few of the original handmade Raker Ring Tools (which was later modified into the (much lower quality) for about $20 each, back from when Ray Kirk was an active member of this forum.  I bought one to replace a CRKT version. I like the Benchmade rescue hooks, but they don't have 1/4 drivers.

I will tell you this, my Damascus Ring Tool is of MUCH thicker stock than a KERT. I guess it's what you expect for a handmade $50 plus tool, vs. a  $10 budget item.,85849.0/topicseen.html
