The designers understand that sometimes you just can’t afford to release your hold on a wire or duct or drawer or any of a hundred other things in order to grab a tool and put it to work. If you’re a craftsman or a do-it-yourselfer you owe it to yourself to pick one up and make it a permanent addition to your tool kit.
As a result there’s not a wasted micron of anodized stainless steel on the Dime and the implement looks every bit as good as it works. When the tools are open they automatically lock in place so that you don’t suffer an accidental cut or abrasion.
The opener stays accessible even when the unit is closed and doesn’t look or feel ridiculous because of this. The tools are expertly chosen to allow you to apply the Dime to as many tasks as possible and the whole thing can be had for less than 2 movie tickets.
