Rare Straight Edge

12/11/2014 by kl

it's ok. the "letter opener" is lame...hardly tears an envelope. But the screw drivers and wrench will be helpful, orange peeler? right. earbud cord wrap? perhaps. Ruler for all those tiny measurements I need to take. And straight edge for when I can't lay my hands on say an envelop, piece of paper, book, checkbook, credit card. Yeah Boy!

They look really good in the package. I don't know yet if they work like you suggest...they are Christmas gifts for all the men in my family. I'll let you know.

Its okay

12/2/2014 by Ricardo

First I must say that I am a huge fan of Multi-Tools... I'm a McGiever type of guy, though I prefer Batman and his gadgets. This tool is cool, but may have been made too thin. I used it over the Thanksgiving holiday to pop open Cider bottles, break off Zip ties and try to open boxes and letter and here is what happened.

1. The bottle caps on apple cider bent the monkey head when used it as a bottle opener.

2. The peeler needs to be given an edge or sharpened, it was worthless trying to peel with it as it was to blunt an edge.

3. The same goes for the letter open, the edge was too dull and the metal was being bent by the letters I was opening.

4. The screw driver ends were good, but again the metal began to bend.

5. I tried making the iPhone stand, which worked, but it was a lot of effort to squeeze the business card through the slot and then it damaged the business card.

6. I tried using the letter opener slide to slice packing tape to open a box and it was again to blunt.

I think this design has great potential, but when compared with the Swiss Utili-Key, it is far out classed in performance and workmanship.

Not very useful

Nice idea, but not so great. Letter opener not sharp enough to be effective. So far, not very useful.

Don't love it.

I don't love it - it's very basic, and doesn't really do that much for the price. I would have returned it but for the return postage. Overpriced.

disappointing purchase

3/1/2019 by Mary Anne

I bought this in the belief that I could use it for so many things but found it works on nothing I have tried to use it on. I gave the second one to my husband and he has found no use for it either. I thought the long pointed end would help with loosening the twist of soda bottles that don't want to 'get started' but it is too thick.

Not impressed

Not that great. Tears envelopes. Hard to see
Icons on it. Not thrilled with it at all.

Caveat emptor

7/30/2015 by John

The description states that it is "TSA Compliant" and maybe it is. But have you ever tried to argue with a TSA agent about their regulations when they've already decided to take your Pocket Monkey? It doesn't get you far.

This isn't so much a criticism of the Pocket Monkey itself, which has come in handy over the last few months, but rather a warning that to some TSA agents you might be in a 'grey area' with the "cutting blade" as they describe it to me. Of course, it wasn't "grey" to them. They stated to me (at Denver Airport, 7/30/15) that they have "received pamphlets on these" and they are illegal to carry on a plane.

Who's right? I don't know. TSA.gov states that any "blade" is prohibited. Scissors are okay, but the PM doesn't really look like scissors, and arguing that the little curved edge isn't a blade . . . well, it's hard to argue in the security line anyway.

The Zootility Story

Zootility - Multi-Functional Pocket Tools

Light & Mighty

Founder and self-proclaimed tinkerer, Nate Barr, set out to find a pocket tool that wouldn’t weigh him down. When he couldn’t find one, he used his mechanical engineering background to create and make the PocketMonkey right here in the USA.

His company, Zootility, is a true American manufacturing success story. The PocketMonkey, a 12-in-one utility tool that’s thin enough to fit in your wallet’s credit card slot, has been a resounding success. Millions of Americans own one. (If not you, what are you waiting for?)

Nate’s hobby has blossomed into a full-time business that employs seven people,
and growing. They’ve expanded to other multi-tools, all light and strong. The secret to packing so much strength and utility into an ultra-thin piece of stainless steel? Heat treating for maximum durability.

So whether you’re opening a bottle, peeling an orange, opening a letter, tightening a screw, or doing other everyday tasks, Zootility has got a Made in the USA multi-tool for you.
