What do we have that's new and unusual in gadgets? How about Launce Barber and Tom Stokes' multifunctional Gekkota line?
Most readers of the Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT) catalog will know that Gekkota is an infraorder in the suborder Scleroglossa, comprising all geckos. But what the heck is the CRKT Gekkota? Well, it's a useful little product designed by Launce Barber and Tom Stokes for daily personal carry.
Gekkota Pocket. At first glance, this looks like a brooch with a gecko design on the green anodized 6061 aluminum face.
But what's this? Push one of the little flipper tabs, and out pops a 1.375" long spear point blade with a CRKT script laser cut in it. It is firmly held open by the frame lock cut into the Gekkota stainless steel back panel.
Push the other tab, and you have a tool that is both a blade screwdriver and a bottle opener, handy when you need to open your favorite soda or microbrew.
Then you look more carefully, and find the stainless steel clip on the back, which can be a pocket clip, or a money clip. And there's a folding loop that allows the Gekkota to be carried on a neck chain or by a small carabiner.
Weighing only 1.8 ounces, this is a lightweight tool that has hundreds of daily uses.
This cute little Gekkota models make affordable and unusual gifts and premiums, both for men and women.
- Handy bottle opener when you need to open your favorite soda or microbrew.
- The folding loop allows both lightweight Gekkota models to become a handy key fob so it'sthere when you need it.
