Cabel's mini multi-tool

Cabela’s mini multi-tool.

Gwizdz’s Gadgets and Gear

I have a fondness for multi-tools and while cruising Cabela’s the other day, I came across a mini version that I had to have. Measuring just 3 inches when closed and weighing less than 4 ounces, the tool features flat-nosed pliers with a wire stripper, a knife, Phillips and flat screwdrivers, a bottle opener, scissors and a saw blade (which, frankly, I would have gladly traded for a file) and a nylon sheath. The best part? It retails for $5.99. At that price I can keep it in my glove box in case I find myself in need — like if I lose the one I carry. And if I never need it, I’m out six bucks.
