Cool Tool or Gimmick? Kniper Throwing Multitool

A throwing-multitool. Because ‘Murica.

 

I like throwing knives. I like multitools. I have never imagined combining the two. And throwing in a “tobacco-pipe” as well. I am not sure that is what the inventor was smoking when he came up with the idea, but the finished result surprised me when I clicked the headline from Geekologie. Urchin Sky executed this unique idea better than I expected.

22 Tools-in-all

I wasn’t kidding when I said that one of the “tools” is a “tobacco” pipe. Others include a rangefinder window, bottle/can opener, fork, screwdrivers, and hex wrench cutout. Plus it is balanced for throwing.

From Kniper.com:

“Milled from a single piece of 420 high-carbon stainless steel, Kniper features twenty-two tool functions, including a tobacco pipe. Built as a single monolith of steel means Kniper’s tools never remain hidden. Its shape, weight distribution, metal composition and color are all designed for the ultimate outdoor adventure. Kniper is 13 inches long, 2.5 inches wide and 5.5 millimeters thick.”

I don’t imagine that this would be a part of my camping kit, especially since I don’t live in Colorado or Washington. However, I think it would be a riot to test. I don’t think I could bring myself to drop the $75 on it though.

    Seems like a solution looking for a problem…

    Uh, yeah, no. I think a SAK could do most of that stuff and fit in your pocket. Of course you wouldn’t have a survival tobacco pipe.

    Yaknow, I generally like gadget knives, they can be fun toys.
    This one, though, is trying to fit too much into too little.
    Plus, you are being encouraged to throw your tools away,
    Not to mention that in some jurisdictions, this would be
    considered drug paraphernalia. I do believe I’ll pass.
    But at least it doesn’t have a biohazzard symbol emblazoned
    upon it.

    I wish those “tools” were printed in black or blue or anything with better contrast than yellow. Ah cain’t read ’em.
