|I’m not one for reading instructions, but it was nice to see a full-color brochure included with the new Spyderco Spyderench. This is a multi-tool to be reckoned with.
We’ve all seen the flimsy little stamped-metal multi-tools with weak pliers and lame configurations. Well, when you get your hands on a Spyderench, you will look down your nose at those lesser tools.
First, the Spyderench is stout. The pliers are slip-joint versions, with jaws that look a lot like channel locks and open to a full 9/16-inch span.
At the other end of the unit is a nice little adjustable wrench and a slot to hold screwdriver tips. Coolest of all is the fact that you can open the knife blade one-handed without opening the tool.
If you wish to get more torque when using the adjustable wrench, you can extend the handle to the fully open and locked position. The halves can be taken apart and used independently, with the knife and screwdrivers on one side and the adjustable wrench on the other.
The Spyderench comes with a belt clip, but is also shipped with a stout nylon belt pouch. This would be a great tool to toss in a glove box or a backpack. It’s not like having a full set of Snap-On tools, but it’s a darn sight better than most of the other multi-tools out there.
