Switchblade

Switchblade
Pocket real estate is precious these days what with phones, keys, jump drives and wallets all playing roles in our every day carry. Because it’s unthinkable to lug around anything that isn’t absolutely essential, the Switch, from product think tank Quirky, is both literally and figuratively cutting edge. Unlike a classic multi-tool or folding knife—which requires you to carry a fish scaler and magnifying glass when all you really need is a very tiny saw—this modular pocket toolkit is customizable on a daily basis. The $70 instrument comes with 12 blade options including cutting tools, an LED flashlight, screwdrivers and a bottle opener. Each of these implements can be inserted or removed based on your MacGyvering schedule that day.
