The Good

    The Bad

      THE VERDICT

      When I received the Zootility PocketMonkey, I put it in my wallet and forgot about it for a week or so. But then I found myself in situations where I began to rely on it–opening a beverage. Tightening the arms on my glasses. For $12, give it a try–I think you’ll find yourself using it more often than not.

      ITEM DESCRIPTION

      The Zootility PocketMonkey is a pocket tool that comes out of outer space both in form and function. At first glance, it looked like a gimmick but then I found myself picking it up again and again to get an endless variety of tasks complete.

      FULL REVIEW

      Construction & Materials
      Cut from steel, there’s really not much to this multi-tool, which comes in at the size and thickness of a credit card. I’ve had it submerged in a variety of liquids, and it still looks brand new.

      Durability
      Even titanium would bend and bow at this thickness, so don’t expect something you can’t bend out of whack–but it takes a lot of force to do so. You don’t want to rebuild a small block V8 with this, but it could survive almost any task you would reach for a tool like this for.

      Design / Ease Of Use
      This sucker fell into my hands while we were remodeling a portion of our house, and I was actually seeking this out before I went into the workshop for actual tools.

      Edge Retention
      As I said up above, the PocketMonkey has two cutting edges–both of which are fairly dull when brand new. I didn’t get them razor sharp, but I did sharpen them enough and they’ve held up just fine.

      Value
      The PocketMonkey is a perfect addition to your wallet, pocket or glove box. At $12 it offers a no frills multi-tool that will be there when needed.
