Launce Barber and Tom Stokes designed the patented* Zilla-Tool™ Jr. as part of our innovative I.D. Works™ line of tools. It is a slightly smaller and lighter version of the original Zilla-Tool, which makes it easy to carry while retaining high utility.
The pliers jaws are spring loaded, with a slight needle nose taper. They have both fine flat and circular toothed gripping surfaces. Near the base of the pliers, is a very useful wire cutter, and also a notch near the handle for wire stripping.
You can store the two screwdriver hex bits in the Zilla-Tool Jr.'s handle reliefs. It also accepts other standard hex bits with the help of an adapter.
To open the knife blade quickly, just press the little "flipper." It also acts as a blade guard when the blade is open.
Metallic surfaces are bead-blast, while the Zilla-Tool Jr.'s rugged scales are injection molded black glass filled nylon.
The custom stainless steel clip will hold the Zilla-Tool Jr. in your pocket or on gear, or it can be removed if you want to use the included nylon sheath with belt loop and snap closure.
The Zilla-Tool Jr. can open bottles too, using the end of its pliers handle.
Decent little tool. Prefer the Leatherman multitools. Screwdriver heads are much smaller than I expected. Good for small screw heads.

I returned this because it was too small for my purposes.

My first CRKT tool purchase. I bought it for $15 on Steep and Cheep. Great tool for a daily pocket carry. The knife isn't very sharp and it DOESN'T WORK as a bottle opener Great tool considering what I paid for it.
