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.


Sounds great

I thought, What a great idea. Bought it, have carried it in my wallet for years and never used it once.


disappointing purchase

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.


Not totally TSA approve. Got stopped and searched.

Caveat emptor

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.


Not Pleased

I was disappointed. The letter opener did not work on any letter and the bottle opener was difficult to use. I'm trying to keep an open mind in trying the other features, but so far I'm not happy with this item. The letter opener was THE most important piece for me and it failed. Bummer.

The Zootility Story

Zootility - Multi-Functional Pocket Tools

Light & Mighty

Zootility is a true American manufacturing success story. What started as a hobby for Maker Nate Barr has blossomed into a full-time business.

When Nate was on the hunt for a pocket tool that wouldn’t weigh him down, he decided to lean on his mechanical engineering background to create his own, the PocketMonkey. It was such a hit with folks, Zootility expanded to other Made in the USA multi-tools that are as lightweight and durable—and sometimes shaped like a favorite state. And they all meet the criteria of packing functionality in a pocket-friendly or keychain-friendly tool. Whether you’re
opening a bottle, peeling an orange, tightening a screw, or opening a door without touching the handle, doing other everyday tasks, Zootility has a tool that can step up. Read More Read Less
