4:01 a.m. Keychain Bottle Opener Series — Episode 6: Eat-N-Tool


"Bottle opener, spoon, fork, three hex wrenches, carabiner for transport, large central hole for finger gripping and to keep tool weight down, finished with black non-stick coating."


Without a blade or sharp edge, I'm thinking it's more likely than not to make it safely through TSA airport security checkpoints.

But please — don't come crying to me here when they confiscate yours.

Created by New York City designer Liong Mah.

"Most Mah designs are limited editions of 10-20 knives marked with both the maker's logo and Mah's special logo."

Those will cost you a pretty penny.

I'll take one of these — cheap at twice the $5.95 price.

[via my LA correspondent, ceaselessly exploring the alleyways and rat runs of the web to bring back stuff like this. Nicely done.]

Hey Joe! Would love a job! I hail outta Kensington, MD but am currently in Amherst, MA finishing up the last semester of an engineering degree.

And, then the missing prong may well be a "statement" made with a middle finger.

The product is robust. I own two. They worked well for a two week trip to Joshua Tree last month.

Tommy Wyble you are SO right! As well as being observant and not a gullible fool like me. I thought the one prong was a feature, not a bug, until you came along just now and opened my eyes. Too funny. You're hired (where did you say you're from?).

One of the fork prongs is snapped off in the bottom photo. Does not bode well for product reliability.
