The ClipiTool

The earliest known multi-bladed pocket knife was developed by the Romans around AD 200. It included a folding spoon, blade, spike, fork, spatula, and toothpick and, in many ways, was literally centuries ahead of its time.

Today's multi-bladed pocket knives offer amazing versatility in compact, extremely affordable packages. They range from basic patterns like the classic Boy Scout knife to sophisticated folding tools that offer more than 30 different functions. However, despite their usefulness, conventional multi-blade designs all suffer from the same limitations. The smallest ones are true pocket knives and must compete with coins, keys, and other items at the bottom of the pocket. Their larger, more capable counterparts are often too large for comfortable pocket carry and require a belt pouch. Perhaps more importantly, the various tools on these knives rely on traditional nail nicks or notches to get them open. Together, these shortcomings often make using these tools a slow, tedious, fingernail-breaking experience.
 
Spyderco's unique ClipiTool family overcomes these challenges by combining the functionality of the classic multi-blade pocket knife with the advantages of clip carry and Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole. The result is a revolutionary class of everyday-carry tool that rides conveniently at the top of the pocket and can be instantly accessed and easily opened.
 
Introduced in 2014, Spyderco's first three ClipiTool patterns paired a non-locking, slipjoint primary blade with folding secondary tools that included scissors, a serrated blade, or a combination bottle opener/flat-bladed screwdriver. The signature round holes in both the blade and secondary tool made opening them a breeze and proudly proclaimed their Spyderco identity. Their satin-finished stainless steel handles also included hourglass clips for convenient top-of-the-pocket carry. These distinctive features quickly earned the ClipiTool concept an audience of devoted end users. They also inspired requests for additional designs offering other tools and functions. In response to that demand, Spyderco is proud to announce the ClipiTool Standard.

The ClipiTool Standard

The ClipiTool Standard elevates the original concept of the ClipiTool family to a full-sized pocket knife with two additional folding tools. The star attraction of this design is a full-flat-ground leaf-shaped blade crafted from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. Unlike its smaller slipjoint brethren, the PlainEdge primary blade of this ClipiTool locks securely open via a stout liner lock mechanism. It is complemented by a folding can opener/small screwdriver and a bottle opener/large screwdriver with a wire-stripping notch. Both screwdriver heads are hollow ground to ensure a secure fit in slotted screws. Although they do not lock, they are supported by sturdy slipjoint spring mechanisms to keep them open during use and feature "half-stops" at the 90-degree point that allows the handle to be used for extra leverage. Like the primary blade, both tools are precision machined from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and feature textured index-finger choils and generously sized Trademark Round Holes. A defining feature of all Spyderco knives, the round hole proudly identifies the knife's pedigree and allows all three tools to be swiftly and easily opened with only one hand.

The handle of the ClipiTool Standard is built on a framework of nested stainless steel liners, textured black G10 scales, and solid stainless steel backspacers and springs. Its screw-together construction ensures the precise alignment of all parts, and a two-position hourglass clip provides a choice of right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.

Nice
It is nice but not awesome.Like EG said its a start. A good one I think.Its very compact and well made (nothing unusual for spyderco).A bit of jimping on the main blade would have been nice.Also i'll have to sand a bit the smaller spydi holes edges.Other than that works pretty fine for what it is supposed to be, A Spyderco Swiss Knife which is really nice even with the aforementioned tiny defaults.

My new pal!
This has replaced my standard EDC, Benchmade. I really like the idea of having all the ready tools at hand, and have used the knife (sharp), the small screwdriver to take the grips off a Seecamp, and the bottle opener for a good lager after all the work was done. Happy for the liner lock on the blade and like the way the tools are retained, like a dentent.

Finally!
I bought my first Spyderco in 1985, a serrated Endura. The combination of cutting power, one hand opening and pocket clip were amazing. My previous EDC knives were swiss army knives, and the only thing I missed on a Spyderco was the bottle opener and screwdriver of an SWK. Now with 47 Spydercos in my collection, they have finally made my knife.( I have a Clipit, but for me it's too small for EDC.) I love the G-10 scales, the bottle opener really cranks the caps off longnecks, and the main blade is big enough for serious work. Was it worth a 33 year wait? Yes!
