Card size multi-tool is not new. In fact, it existed since when I was in my teen. I had one, inherited from my dad. But the credit card EDC multi-tool you see here, called Universal 3.0, is somewhat unique because it packs over 60 functionalities and it can even be extended to improve its usability. It is the perfect take for 21st century person who wants to do it all without the bulk. Two years in the making and engineered from 440с High Carbon Hardened Stainless Steel , the Universal 3.0 exhibits trade found in many high-end knives, axes, and survival tools, including superb hardness, toughness, wear resistance, edge retention, and corrosion resistance.
With the Universal 3.0, you can slice and dice food, cut open boxes, pry stuff, pop open bottles, screw stuff, open cans, start fire, pull nails, and even measure your vehicle’s tire threads – among the myriad of other things. But the best part is perhaps the handle extension which will afford you a more comfortable grip when added strength is required. The handle also serves as a placeholder for bits, secured by the included O rings, if you have those. Finally, it comes with a leather sleeve to hold the multi-tool so it won’t go around snagging on things when in transit.
You can find Universal 3.0 on Kickstarter where for 23 bucks or more will secure you a unit. The campaign is well over its funding goal and so it is a pre-order which will be realized in February 2018. Take a look at the product pitch video to pick out more details.
