The Zilla Tool, Jr.

zilla-jr-tool-by-crktIf you’re looking for a practical everyday carry, look no further than the Zilla Jr. Tool. It’s a combination tool that features pliers, a knife, and phillips and flat screwdriver points. It’s small enough to comfortably fit in a pocket at only 5.25 inches when closed and weighs only 3.8 ounces. It’s not meant for heavy use but is perfect for that little fix-it you need throughout your day.

Made by Columbia River Knife & Tool, or CRKT for short, the Zilla Jr. is a high quality do-everything tool. Based in Oregon, CRKT is known for great practical and purpose driven knives and tools that get the job done with smart, no frills design and engineering. The Zilla Jr. fits right into that category. The pilers are a modified needle nose style with grips for both small and large jobs as well as wire strippers. Activated with an ambidextrous switch, the pliers work well for grabbing and holding jobs. The multitool is made to fit comfortably into your hand, unlike other multitools that eventually cut into your hand and are uncomfortable. The Zilla Jr. also has the advantage of full pliers built into the body, instead of a butterfly style. Butterfly styles are inherently weaker and can be fussy to work with. Instead, the spring-loaded pliers on the Zilla Jr. offer strength and resillence that make them easy to use.

On the other end is the knife blade. It’s a quick flip of the switch to access it easily but you can also manually open the blade too. The idea is that you can use the two main tools with one hand for optimal practicality. The blade is half straight, half serrated and comes in at 2.25 inches long. The tip is pointed and is perfect for jobs that require a high level of detail and dexterity.

The multitool also comes with two bits, one phillips and one flathead. They are stored away in the side of the scales and are easy to access but won’t fall out. They fit into a holder on the knife end when the blade is closed. They’re smaller than regular bits because of the storage design on the scales but adapters for regular sized bits is also available for bigger jobs.

The Zilla Jr. also comes with a handy pocket clip so it’s always right where you need it. We have Zilla Jr Tools in stock so if you’re in search of a great everyday carry, be sure to come in and check it out.
