Hey guys! This is our sixth project and we’re so excited to share this "TTool" with you. It’s a multi-tool that’s only 2” long (5.08cm) – so small that it fits in your pocket. If you’re looking for a way to carry your TTool around comfortably, look no further.
Type-TTool: What makes it so special?
We all receive parcels and need a convenient tool to open them. This is the best tool (in our opinion) to carry with you in your every day. As you can see in our video, it can be used in 19+ different ways. We combined the design of each function into a single tool shape. There's a key hole to go with your keys or you can use it with the Type-A and Type-B.
This is the Type A and Type B we did for our last 2 projects.
We've been using and testing the prototype for a while. It's durable and sturdy. Want to get one? On the left hand side of the page, pick one of the reward tiers.
Kindly take a look below to see all 19 applications for the Type-TTool
- Type-TTool: 19 applications
- Type-TTool+ Type-A / Type-B: 19+22 = 41 applications
Many backers will use it for 4-5 applications, it's enough for your daily life. In addition, it's a good collection for you, or as a gift.

1. Safe for your pockets & for your touch
While this tool is capable of cutting and piercing, it has been meticulously designed to be safe and free of sharp edges that might cut you, cause any discomfort or damage your pockets or their contents.
2. Small, compact and ultra-light
Designed as a pocket tool, TTool is small and made so that it can be carried securely in your pocket without weighing you down, If you attach your key fob to the loop, you will not be aware of any extra weight in your pocket.
3. Detachable tool
As you can see, we have designed a key hole and slot to be used in two ways.
The slot can also hold an elastic band, and we have designed the cutaway corner for quicker access with a clip. The TTool is made using 420J2 stainless steel. This has been chosen because it will adhere to the surface of the clip and be more stable in use.
If you're a previous backer, you can use it with your Type-A or Type-B clips. It's cool! Right?
4. CM and INCHES
Total length: Only 5 cm (2 inches)
- Length: 2 inches (50.8mm)
- Width: 28mm
- Material: 420J2 Stanless steel
- Thickness: 0.098 inches (2.5mm)
- Weight: 0.62oz (0.01762kg)
- Color: Sprayed sand pewter black (including unlocked color)
Screws of 420 stainless steel make it lightweight and durable. This is blade-quality stainless steel, heat treated for strength and hardness (HRC49) and with excellent corrosion resistance.
Why we use 420J2 Stainless steel on this tool…
Extensive testing shows that a hardness of HRC 49 is ideal for this tool and suitable for all of its intended functions. A higher HRC would make the tool more breakable. Using HRC 49 gives it toughness.
Each tool is made using a mold and a CNC machine. The tools are of top quality and each piece has tight tolerances and is meticulously machined. The stainless steel lever mechanism is designed to withstand normal wear and tear. Extremely durable with a rust-resistant blade that is hard to dull and can hold an edge.
Why Not Use Titanium?
Titanium is a strong material, but 420J2 Stainless Steel is considered the material of choice for tools, axes and survival tools.
We are Ron Ng and Thea Lin – Canadian/Chinese designers with a deep passion for minimalist and original designs using top quality materials.
We both love minimalist design, so we teamed up the team in 2016 to create our first design. And now we've decided to create a team share our ideas with you.
More about us:
Ron has been a designer and 3D artist since he was 19. He loves sports, drawing and movies. He wants to do things differently and he doesn’t follow the rules. A little secret about Ron is that he doesn’t eat fish.
Thea is a young, beautiful lady who loves photography and 2D design. Her drawing skills are very poor but she is a PowerPoint and Photoshop touch up expert. She is very skinny but she eats a lot. :)
What inspired us?
We are never satisfied with products, and nor should you be. That's why we push ourselves further, out of the boundaries and break rules, trying this and that to improve every single aspect of the product that we have made.
Nowadays, we have so many items to carry: pen, phone, keys, business cards and wallets. What if there is a thing that can improve the way we carry? What if there is a thing that can help us works better? We have so many questions and these questions lead us to the Type-TTool. Check out the project video and you will see why you should get this tool.
This prototype took almost three weeks by factory, there is much cranmanship in this tool, such as CNC, manual grinding, stamping, laser, etc.
For the slot design,you will find that the inside corner is rounded. when you put the elastic band on the slot, it'll provide easy access.
Why back us?
To achieve an affordable price whilst using quality materials and a high level of craftsmanship, our manufacturer need us to order 3000pcs MOQ (minimum order quantity), so that’s where you come in. With our suppliers ready to go, we need your help to place our first purchase order and in return you will get the best damn TTool that we have ever made, thanks!
