Pocket knives are still cool, but the multitools still suffer from one major flaw, which is that they often have too many tools or not enough. In fact, it’s almost expected that the so-called better ones are loaded with tools, even though you’ll likely never use most of them. The Quirky Switch is designed specifically to change this by offering a fully modular pocket knife to let you pick and choose the right tools for the right job.
Many of the tools on a pocket knife do find their uses once in a while, but do you really need a corkscrew when you’re at work? Do you need a half-dozen different screwdrivers and a set of pliers for your everyday routine? Furthermore, it can be annoying fiddling with the various tools in order to find the right one. To remedy this, the Switch comes with 17 different tools, which can be combined in any way. The design of the tool is slick, and it comes with three different thickness options to accomodate different combinations of tools. After all, you don’t need an inch-thick pocket knife when you only have three tools attached.
As you can see in the render pics below, the knife is also presented beautifully, with a storage case to hold everything. The knife cover also comes in a neutral blue-green color which is stylish and cool without being flashy. According to the website, the modular tools include the following: Standard Knife, Pliers, Scissors, Nail File, Tweezers, Thin Flathead Screwdriver, Phillips-Head Screwdriver, Eyeglass Phillips-Head Screwdriver, Eyeglass Flathead Screwdriver, Wood Saw, Serrated Blade, Corkscrew, Combination Bottle Opener/Flathead Screwdriver, Combination Can Opener/Wire Stripper, Pen, Magnifying Glass, LED Flashlight. This amounts to 17 tools, some of which have multiple functions. If you’re the type who loves taking things apart and reassembling them, a customizable pocket knife like this is probably the one for you. For $79.00 you can claim one for yourself.
