The 10 Best Multi-tools for EDC | 2023

Generally speaking, a multi-tool is a MUST have EDC in your pocket as it can be widely used in various situations where you need a thing to get fixed quickly. Thus, the multi-tool you select as one of your everyday carries deserves a second thought. If you have browsed the Internet for multi-tools, you could see the astound number out there. From sizes, weight, tools, and niche functions, we assessed and compared, yielding a well-rounded list of best multi-tools. 

How we do that certainly varies, so our list includes something for everyone. From ultralight titanium micro tools and pro-grade blades to a woodchopping ax and a luxe brass capsule with a proper corkscrew, we’re sure you’ll find something that works for you or that will make an excellent gift for everyone.

If you still want more ideas on EDM items for men, jump here.

Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X

Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X

The Victorinox SwissTool Spirit X is a full-sized multi-tool made from high-quality steel and comes with a lifetime warranty. At first glance, you may think it looks similar to the SwissTool Lite Touch, but upon closer inspection, you’ll notice that this tool has more tools than its smaller cousin.

The Spirit X is lightweight and small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket or purse, making this one of the best options for EDC. In addition, it can help you tackle whatever tasks come your way with confidence because of its variety of tools, such as Philips screwdriver heads and scissors—all wrapped up in one handy package.

Gerber MP600

The Gerber MP600 is a multi-tool for EDC that can be used for just about anything. It's easy to carry and comes in several colors, including black and gray. The knife features a locking mechanism so it doesn't twist open in your pocket, along with an ambidextrous thumb stud that makes opening the knife simple for anyone (lefties included!). The MP600 also has a bottle opener on one side of its plier's head to help you crack open your favorite beverage after work or during camping trips.

The Gerber MP600 is a handy tool because it has so many different functions packed into one little device:

  • Screwdrivers - Phillips and flathead screwdriver heads are great for tightening loose screws around your home or office. You could also use them to repair things like electronics and appliances—the possibilities are endless!
  • Pliers - These handy pliers will help you bend wires as well as cut out small materials like cardboard boxes or PVC pipes when building something new at home.


SOG PowerAccess Deluxe

The SOG PowerAccess Deluxe is a great multi-tool for EDC. It's made from anodized aluminum, so it's durable and lightweight. The tools on the PowerAccess are accessible from either side of the tool, thanks to their location on hinges. This means they're easy to access even when you're working in tight spaces or with your hands full!

This multi-tool has seven different tools: a flathead screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, bottle opener (on both sides), serrated blade, pry bar/wire stripper/awl combo tool and cross driver bit holder. There's also a pair of scissors that comes out of this little guy when you need them!

The best part about this multi-tool? The price is right around $20 USD (but can be found cheaper than that). You'll have no problem finding it at many big-name retailers such as REI and Amazon.

Leatherman Skeletool CX


The Leatherman Skeletool CX is an ultra-light, full-size multimodal featuring a range of select basics for daily use and carry. It includes a knife blade made with premium 154CM steel, needlenose and regular pliers, hard and regular wire cutters, 154CM knife, carabiner/bottle opener and large bit driver.

The Skeletool CX can be fully opened with one hand, making it more practical. With its lightweight design and pocket clip, your Skeletool CX is always within reach and ready to work.

Nite Ize DoohicKey Keytool

Nite Ize DoohicKey Keytool

The Nite Ize DoohicKey Keytool is made of stainless steel, and it sports various tools to help you with everyday tasks. It includes a box cutter, flathead screwdriver, metric wrench, and bottle opener—all in one compact package that's easy to keep on your keychain. The size of this tool is 1.5" x 1.5" x 0.2", so it won't take up much room in your pocket or bag when you're out and about.

Not only does this multi-tool come with four major functions like the others on our list, but it also has a clip on its back side so that you can attach it directly onto your keychain (or just carry it around loose). This makes for an easy way to keep track of everything important without having to rummage through pockets or bags for misplaced items every time something comes up unexpectedly!

PITAKA Pita!Tag for Multi-tool

Pita!Tag for Multi-tool is a handy exquisite mini multi-tool with a protective AirTag case. It's a minimalist everyday carry item, as well as an exquisite AirTag holder integrating with a slot-type screwdriver, a cross screwdriver, a 2.0-caliber Allen key, and a pocket knife. 

And it comes with a keyring allowing for easy attaching to your bags or other belongings. You will not only have easy to those tools but you will never lose them by installing your AirTag.

Besides, the pentagon case crafted from metal is uniquely pleasing to the eyes. 

Gerber Dime Mini Multi-Tool

Gerber Dime mini multi-tool

The Gerber Dime Mini Multi-Tool is a bestseller on Amazon. It's a small but powerful EDC tool that includes a variety of high-quality tools and accessories, including pliers, wire cutters, wire strippers and more.

The Gerber Dime weighs only 1.5 ounces which makes it perfect for carrying in your pocket or purse without adding unnecessary bulk to your everyday carry kit. This mini multi tool comes with its own case so you can easily store it away when not in use as well as keep track of all the pieces when they're out on the go!

Leatherman Style PS

The Leatherman Style PS is one of the best multi-tools for EDC. It boasts a pocket clip, bottle opener, knife, screwdriver, carabiner, and ruler—all in a compact package that will fit into the palm of your hand. The liner lock keeps the blade firmly in place so you can safely open it with one hand. The carabiner on the end comes in handy when you're at work or out in the woods; attach your keys or dog leash to it so they're always within reach!

Schrade Key Knife

The Schrade Key Knife is another multi-tool designed with the EDC enthusiast in mind. It's made from stainless steel and has a bottle opener, screwdriver, and hex wrench on one side, along with a key ring on the other.

The tool also features a removable pocket clip for clipping it to your jeans or belt loop (as well as a lanyard hole for attaching extra tools). The knife comes with both standard and wood handles; the latter will give you an extra grip when using it - especially if you're working outside!

CRKT Viva Pocket Tool

The CRKT Viva Pocket Tool has the perfect size for EDC. The quality stainless steel construction and thoughtful design make this a must-have tool for your keychain.

The bottle opener, screwdriver, can opener, box cutter, ruler, hook, scraper, and wire stripper give you plenty of uses in a compact package that's easy to carry anywhere you go.

Final Words

There are plenty of multi-tools out there, but these are our favorites. Multi-tools are known to be bulky and heavy, but that doesn’t need to be the case. We think these ten picks are some of the best in terms of weight, size, features and value.

Multi-tools have many uses: they can help open packages or bottles; assist with repairs; act as a screwdriver set; cut through wire or rope; even defend yourself against an attacker (although we don't recommend using your knife as a weapon unless you're trained).

In short: multi-tools make life easier by offering multiple functions in one small package. They’re especially useful if you don’t like carrying around too many things or having extra weight hanging off your belt loop or rear pocket flap. They allow you to keep all your tools together in one place without lugging around an entire toolbox just because you need something sharpened!
