Li'l Guppie


"Adjustable wrench, knife with razor-sharp cutting edge, flat and Phillips screwdriver, bottle opener, carry carabiner."

Designed by Launce Barber and Tom Stokes.

John Edgar Park reviewed it in the latest issue of MAKE magazine, writing, "Why the heck do I need another pocket tool? I've already got a multi-tool with pliers, knives, screwdrivers, and more. Well, the reason is this: ever try to loosen a bolt without an adjustable wrench? It's pretty hopeless; the nonparallel jaws of pliers just don't cut it. The Li'l Guppie is the answer; it has an adjustable wrench on it."

"Thanks to its carabiner-like form I can hang it from my belt loop, ready to be deployed on a stubborn bolt. It's got a fangy little blade (I wish it locked in place), but turning the thumbscrew to open the wrench reveals a Phillips screwdriver, an extra clever feature. A flathead screwdriver is cast into the butt of the tool, with a pretty serviceable bottle opener built in, too."
