When the Guppie came out last year, we were psyched that you could potentially kill a dinosaur with it. Going into a long-weekend where I’m planning on getting a lot of neglected housework done, I’m psyched about the Guppie because it’s frickin’ useful.
The Guppie is basically a streamlined, stainless steel multi-tool combined with a carabiner. Need to open a bottle? There’s the Guppie, hanging from your belt loop. Need to do something besides drinking? The Guppie packs a 2-inch blade, an adjustable wrench, a high-intensity LED light, and a hex driver with storage space for four bits into a 4 ounce package that’s very flat.
The Guppie’s not for every task, but it’s a smart little tool for $US40. [CRKT]
