Every now and then I am going to be doing mini reviews on gear that I like or use that might not warrant me prattling on for a few thousand words about. In this case I will be writing about my four different Nuko Tools. I met Norman around three years ago and he is the mad scientist behind Nuko Tools. We were at a Usual Suspect Network get together and he hooked me up with a G10 Punchring and a titanium Nukohead (at the time I think it was called GBI which was short for Grin and Beat It). Norman remarked that I had massive fingers and that the titanium Nukohead would fit me better than his current G10 versions. Over the next few years Norman and I have had lots of dealings together and I am happy to call him a friend. He makes some great discreet pocket impact tools and enjoys what he does. As with any sort of impact weapon please check your local laws to determine their legality.
Having a small tool on your key chain that can be used on a the odd job like cutting some tape on a package, screwing in a loose screw or popping open a bottle can be useful. It can save you going to the garage to grab a tool or stopping yourself from improvising with the wrong tool. So it’s no surprise that I have more than one key chain tool that I put in rotation. The newest tool comes with a hidden ability as an impact weapon.
