Go ahead: Make my day!

 I don’t know why I like this product.

After reading about food shortages, an economy that is fast sinking into the crapper and crime rising in the streets, I guess my survivalist instinct is kicking in.

I want to own the new Leatherman K502x & K503x; my “machismo” screams for it.

Can opener, bottle opener, bit driver (with six screw bit tips), even a carabiner clip.

The hidden carabiner is neat. It stays hidden until you need it, nesting with other components to save space. Then a simple thumb action is all that is required to hang the Leatherman knife on a backpack, rope or belt loop. Plus, it locks into place so attachment is easy.

The carabiner also acts as a bottle opener.
