Along with chocolates, cuckoo clocks and political neutrality the Swiss are renowned for their ability to manufacture pocket-sized precision implements. And although the prospect of putting a multi-purpose metal thingamabob in your pocket or attaching it to your keys might seem somewhat unappealing, we guarantee you'll change your mind the second you get your mitts around these ingenious Swiss Tech Tech Tools.
These tiny, folding multi-tools will soon become an indispensable take-everywhere item, alongside your keys, wallet, mobile, portable computer, and?). Because let's be honest, carrying around a full-size toolbox wherever you may roam is impractical, not to mention pretty weird.
Handier than a sackful of handy things from the handy store in Handyville, the compact Swiss Tech Tech Tools are those bits of kit you might not use today, or even tomorrow. But then suddenly you’ll need to build an electric flying-scooter from six pieces of timber, a couple of golf balls and bit of tin. And when you take to the skies, everyone will look at you like a god, and want to know where you got such a gorgeously engineered gizmo.

Impressed? You should be. Dubious? We don’t blame you. During our meticulous and thorough product testing we counted all 19 tools, and let’s just say that listing two separate ruler ‘extensions’ is using the word ‘tool’ very generously indeed. But even so, there are still 8 screwdrivers, various cutters, crimpers and openers, and even a drill!
Add to this a lifetime guarantee and you're looking at an implement that no sophisticated would-be MacGyver should be without.
