I’m well aware of the multitude of terrible multitools out there. “If they can be branded as a promotional gift, it’s probably not very good,” is my rule of thumb. But a good multitool can be a real life saver in both basic situations like trying to open a beer, or trying to break out of a prison cell when you’ve been captured by former KGB officers and they are getting ready to torture you. The new Emerson EDC-1 Multitool looks to fit the bill, as it includes a 3-inch blade made of D2 steel, a Standard and a Phillips screwdriver, a detachable pry-tool and bottle opener that includes dual gator-wrench cutouts, and a punch. Pretty sexy.

Available from Emerson for $184.95.
