Call it a glorified box cutter or whatever, but you can’t deny that this “box cutter” is unlike anything you have seen. It is not quite a pocket knife, but it might very well be one. This is the EMT, or The EveryMan Tool, a compact EDC multi-tool that offers a utility blade, a pry bar/flat head screwdriver, a 6 mm Hex driver, and a bottle opener – packed in a keychain friendly size.
It has a key ring opening for the obvious (i.e. key ring), or the included 550 Para cord lanyard if so desire and then there is a 3×11 Tritium slot to fit a Tritium vial easy spotting of the tool in low light conditions. I believe this might be the first multi-tool of this size to spot this feature, or if you will, the first box cutter to support a Tritium vial.
In any case, it also comes with Glow Bead that goes on the lanyard, also for low light spotting. EMT The EveryMan Tool Multi-tool is made stone-washed Grade 5 Titanium alloy or stone-washed aluminum, and further features magnetic buttons to prevent any blade play while the track locking system allows you to swap out the blade with ease.
The magnetic buttons is a simple and yet clever design to keep the blade in place firm where it is supposed to be without the need for clunky or research-level kind of mechanism. EMT The EveryMan Tool Multi-tool measures just 67 mm (2.64 inches) long, 25 mm (1-inch) wide, and 6 mm (0.24-inch) thin, and it weighs almost nothing at 28g (0.988 ounce).
As you may have noted above, it is offered in two versions: an aluminum and a Titanium, with the latter includes both a standard blade insert and a hooked blade insert. MDF Designs, the outfit behind the EMT, has taken to Kickstarter to crowdfund the production of this little guy. If you want, you can help make EMT a reality by backing its campaign on Kickstarter.
For 30 bucks, you will secure yourself an aluminum model, or if you have more financial muscle to flex, $80 will land you with a Titanium version. If all goes as planned, i.e. the campaign meet or surpass its funding goal of $7.5K in the next 26 days or so, you can expect to be greeted by this little fellow sometime in June 2019. Skip ahead for the pitch video to learn more.
