Tsvet doesn't waste any time on an intro waxing poetic about his Crocobiner on the multi-tool's Kickstarter campaign page. Why would he? One look at the EDC crocodile and its list of functions tells me just about everything I need to know about this sweet reptilian wingman. Bonus points to Tsvet too for not doing that annoying caps thing everyone's slapping all over everything now and calling it the CrocoBiner.
Crocobiner's adept and precisely-designed body can serve as the following multi-tool implements:
- Key holder
- Box opener
- Pry bar
- Bottle opener
- Multispoke bicycle wrench for 13G/14G/15G and Shimano 4.3mm wheelsets
- Flat screwdriver
- Philips screwdriver
- Hex bit holder
- 6 wrenches: SAE-3/8"; 11/32"; 5/16"; 9/32"; 1/4"; 3/16". Or Metric: #10; #9; #8; #7; #6; #5.
- Lady bait. What girl could resist an adorable crocodile popping open her bottle of beer with its little feet, or tightening the screws on her bike hub with its precious mouth of steel?
And speaking of steel, Tsvet waterjet cuts his Crocobiners from 5mm metal sheets, such as brushed or polished stainless steel. Other materials he can use to Crocofy your biner include: aerospace titanium Grade 5; low carbon steel; copper (polished, patinated, or brushed); and Mokume Gane, a mixed-metal laminate with visible layered patterns.
Pledge for your Crocobiner in any of the above metal choices on Kickstarter through October 5, 2015.
