Griffin Pocket Tool XL Titanium.

The Griffin Pocket Tool XL is now on Kickstarter, we knew we had to check it out.

The new Griffin Pocket Tool XL is 50 percent bigger than the original, with over 15 functions. New features include a nail prying tool inset in the chisel, rulers on both sides of the tool in inch and millimeter increments, a bit retainer (handy if you’ve got a multi-bit screwdriver too) and the choice of US or metric sized hex wrenches.

The rest of the features we liked about the original Griffin are of course all still there – a scoring tool to quickly open boxes, bottle opener, drillbit driver, pocket clip, prying tool, and wrenches. All in a single, solid piece of stainless steel. It’s a little more expensive than the first Griffin – you could get one of those for $15 (roughly Rs. 1,000), while the XL will set you back by $20 (approximately Rs. 1,300).

This is the ‘swiss army knife’ for hanymen.
