Schrade has always been a mainstay in quality American manufactured tools- a reputation well deserved with the tens of thousands of slip jointed knives produced over the years.
The Schrade ST1 is a must for any collector
Most mulitools in the market today are pretty much carbon copies of each other, granted there are some that are totally ingenious and ground breaking in overall design. But they all have the same thing in common; the tools are all implements (tools ex: screwdrivers, file, knife, scissors, etc) are based around a pair of pliers. Meyerco USA with the help of renowned knife artist and designer Blackie Collins have designed what is just the opposite of the now traditional multitool.
Multi tools I will admit tend to be quite large and cumbersome, even when you do need to use them you never end up need all of the tools that it comes with.
With so many multi tools out there having pliers (usually needle-nose or blunt) as the center of their tool, Kershaw set out to make a one of a kind tool that sets itself apart from the rest of the multi tool crowd. What Kershaw came up with was the Kershaw Multi tool, an innovative pair of vise-grips packed with all kinds of goods that are wrapped up in a nice little package.
