Here at UK Survival Guides we have recommended plenty of items for our readers and today we are going to take a look at those multi-tools that can fit right inside your wallet.
Now I’m not going to sit here and lie to you by claiming that these credit card multi-tools are anything other than a novelty. They can’t replace a proper multi-tool but they are a great little EDC item for small tasks.
Lever Gear 40-in-1
The Lever Gear 40-in-1 is a slim yet super strong credit card multi-tool. It has been made from heat-treated 420 Stainless steel, has a beautiful bead blasted finish, and is laser marked for high-contrast, permanent graphics.
The Great thing about this multi-tool is that the company not only offer a 60-day money back guarantee but it also comes with a lifetime warranty against breaking or manufacturer defects.

The Wallet Ninja
We have featured the Wallet Ninja here before. We like it and believe that you will too. It is made from 4x heat treated steel and comes with a lifetime guarantee to never rust, bend, or dull.
The only problem we found with the Wallet Ninja was with the phone stand as it is a bit dodgy and we don’t really understand why it would be included anyway.
- 3 screwdrivers
- 6 hex head nuts & bolts
- Bottle, can & letter opener
- Phone stand
- Box cutter
The Pocket Monkey
Weighing in at only 0.6oz and measuring 3.3 x 2 inches, the Pocket Monkey multi-tool is an easy addition to your EDC.
The features of the Pocket Monkey include three screwdrivers, a flathead, Philips and micro flathead for glasses repair, six standard hex wrenches, bottle opener, letter opener, and strap cutter. You can also use it as a headphone wrap and a smartphone stand.
It is made from durable stainless steel with anodized anti-scratch finish and makes for the perfect novelty gift.
Victorinox Swisscard Lite
Victorinox took a slightly different approach in creating the Swisscard Lite. Rather than try and cram as many tools as possible onto a thin sheet of metal, this is actually a thicker, plastic holder for some of Victorinox’s classic tools. You get:
- Emergency blade/letter opener
- Magnifying glass
- Phillips screwdriver 1/2
- Philllps screwdriver 00/0
- 5mm flathead screwdriver
- 3mm flathead screwdriver
- Ballpoint pen
- LED torch
This is more like a flattened Swiss army knife than anything else.
Nite Ize Financial Tool
The Financial Tool not only fits perfectly in your wallet, but it can also become your wallet.
This 7-in-1 multi tool wallet has three integrated wrench sizes (1/4″, 5/16″, and 3/8″), phillips and flathead screwdrivers, a bottle opener, ruler, scraper, and will securely hold your cash and cards without breaking a sweat.
Don’t be deceived by the sleek look of the cash wrap strap – the high-tensile strength strap is strong enough to handle even your biggest payday. Forged from heat-treated stainless steel, this wallet won’t bend, won’t break, and will never let you down.
Zootility Tools Hedgehog
The credit card multi-tool comb. The Zootility Tools Hedgehog has 7 functions in total and is only 1 mm thick and sized to fit in your wallet.
The ‘compulsory’ bottle opener and the common hex wrench that will handle 4 sizes of nuts and bolts are accompanied by an ingenious Phillips screwdriver that isn’t even a cross shape.
Not common to one-piece multi-tools is a phone kickstand and a money clip. And then there’s the so-called ‘chip clip’ which is just a slot where you can use to close a bag of chips or any packet like that.
If you thought any of the above multi-tools were more than novelty then surely we can agree on this one, right? Still if you need a comb on a multi-tool then you are more than sorted with this item.
Vargo Titanium Swing Blade
Razor blades provide a level of cutting accuracy that most knives lack. The Vargo Swing Blade Tool offers precision cutting on an ultralight, multifunctional titanium base.
The tension locked blade swings out for use and swings back for safe stowage. The built in bottle opener pops open your favorite brew at the end of the day.
