Nice Things People Are Saying About The TPT:

Cool Material - "Getting a fantastic tool from them isn’t all that surprising given what Big Idea Design has delivered before, but we’re still impressed by the maximum functionality that the guys managed to fit into a minimal, 4mm thin design."

Everyday Carry - "It balances size, functionality, and aesthetics often sacrificed for an exhausting list of features."

GearHungry -"Carry a handful or two of useful tools in a package no thicker than a pair of keys with the Titanium Pocket Tool, or TPT for short."

GearJunkie - "The Titanium Pocket Tool (TPT) brings a breath of fresh air to the multi-tool conversation."

GearMoose - "Smaller is usually better concerning everyday carry, and the TPT Titanium Pocket fits the bill perfectly at only three inches long."

HiConsumption - "...the TPT is a perfect everyday carry tool for the guy who wants to keep his load light without compromising."

Hypebeast - "The Titanium Pocket Tool One-Ups the Swiss Army Knife With Its Compact Form"

News Ledge - "One feature that piqued my interest has to be the integrated camping fork. That will go down as one of the ‘facepalm’ design moments among other multitool creators."

Outside Magazine - "There’s an ongoing arms race to see who can create the smallest, most feature-rich multi-tool, and the Titanium Pocket Tool, or TPT, is one of the top contenders."

Uncrate - "...one of the most versatile chunks of metal you can keep in your pocket."

Werd - "All exceptional EDC is compact and offers function that exceeds expectations. The TPT looks capable of exactly that."

The Search

We love having useful tools with us for quick n' easy fixes that seem to pop-up everyday. Although, having bulging pockets from hauling around large, heavy, or even multiple multi tools has always been a big deal-breaker for us.

Our personal everyday carry (EDC) goal is to only carry a few well made & versatile items, and nothing more.
Our personal everyday carry (EDC) goal is to only carry a few well made & versatile items, and nothing more.

The Want

We wanted an ultra low profile pocket tool that could do a lot of practical everyday functions, be lightweight and have an elegant and timeless design aesthetic.

The Fix

Minimal Appearance, Maximum Functionality
So, we gathered some of our favorite tools in a pile and decided to combine our favorite functions and features into our new grade 5 titanium alloy pocket ninjas. The result is a super handy and minimal tool with a good balance of strength, functions, weight, and it's so thin you won't even notice it until you need it.

Risks and challenges

This is our 17th project so we know what it will take to bring this project to a successful completion. The only risk we foresee would be shipping a little bit later than the estimated dates show if the project is extremely over-funded. We have planned in extra time but if a delay happens, we will let update everyone know about it ASAP.

Safety/Liability Disclaimer: This is a tool and not a toy, so it should never be in the reach or possession of any children or minors. Tools have the potential to be very dangerous and we do not accept any responsible whatsoever for any harm, damage, illegal activity, injury, etc. while using this tool. Simply said, please be safe.

Actual razor blades / sharp utility blades will NOT be included due to safety and shipping concerns.
