I’m a big fan of Nite-Ize Gear. I have… the S-Biner Ahh Caribiner Clip Bottle Opener (standard equipment for me when traveling), KBB9-03-01 KnotBone Adjustable Bungee, SBL-03-11 S-Biner GetLit, Stainless, C9L-02-01 Large Figure 9 Carabiner and Gear Tie Clippable Twist Tie. In my opinion… they make some really well thought out, innovative and quality stuff.
Here’s a look at their DoohicKey Stainless Multi Tool…
Front of the package (click to zoom). Outlines the features of the DoohicKey. Ruler (2″ on one side and 40 mm on the other), Carabiner Clip, Wrench (1/4″, 5/16″ and 3/8″), Bottle Opener, Box Cutter and Flat Screwdriver.
Prior to getting the DoohicKey, did I have a bottle opener on my keychain? Of course I did! Here’s what the DoohicKey is replacing. A nice little key shaped opener I got after taking a tour of Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City.
I’ve had this for a little while now and I like it very much. I already carried a bottle opener, so having that along is nice, but it’s nothing new. I’ve used the opener a good bit and it works well. The feature I use the most is probably the box cutter. It’s been very handy to have on hand. It’s not very sharp, but it’s enough to work pretty easily on most boxes. Beyond that the carabiner clip is a nice feature to detach this puppy as needed. As far as the other features, they may come in handy in a pinch but they probably won’t replace your toolbox.
Overall, this matches the quality and ingenuity I’ve seen in other Nite Ize gear. It’s a nice little keychain opener that I can recommend.
HBF Reader EchoTony says: “I have this and it is great. Mostly use the blade edge for opening packages, but the opener has been handy a few times. Very simple, but works great.”
