It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog—you should also try to stop dogs from fighting. But the point of that idiom is that the inherent worth of something shouldn’t be tied to how large it is. That’s never been truer than when you come across the Claw, by Malboro & Kane.
Dubbed the world’s smallest multi-tool, the Claw blurs the line between novelty knick-knack and utilitarian powerhouse. Think I’m exaggerating? This little guy is flint-striker, capable of keeping you warm in the woods if you’re lighter run out of fuel. More practically speaking, the Claw can be used as a bottle opener, flat-head screwdriver, paint can opener, and box cutter.
The Claw is roughly the diameter of a penny at .7 inches (18mm) in length. It’s made with high-grade stainless steel and comes in silver, gold, and grade 5 titanium steel which is what most aircraft turbines are made of.
Put it on your keyring and forget about it until the next time you need to crack open a cold one or spark a fire to keep your tribe warm in the forest should the apocalypse occur. You can find them on Indiegogo right now with tiers ranging from $15-$135 and expect them in the mail sometime this May.
