Trekking: Ditch the tool belt with the Wallet Ninja

Man isn’t meant to stay indoors — our weekly “Trekking” column can attest to that. It’s a column dedicated to the adventurer inside of all of us, the one pining to ditch the office humdrum for a seven-week jaunt in the Grand Tetons, or fiending to catch some waves someplace other than the North Shore. One day we may highlight a new ultra-light camping stove or minimalist water filter, and the next you may find us getting wrapped up in a set of Norquayco’s handmade canoe paddles. Life doesn’t just happen inside the workplace and home, so get outside and live it.

There’s a reason tools like the infamous Swiss Army knife have become as popular, and iconic, as they are now. The streamlined multitools are contraptions built for nearly any scenario, whether at the home or on the road, allowing you to just as easily slice a Honeycrisp apple as unscrew a bottle of fine, Pinot Gris. Nonetheless, there’s something to be said about sleek convenience that effortlessly fits in your leather wallet as well as your back pocket. Meet the Wallet Ninja ($10).

The Ninja WalletConstructed of heat-treated stainless steel and sporting 18 essential tools in one, the Wallet Ninja is more than just the world’s first flat multitool. The sleek device boasts a can opener, cell phone stand, fruit peeler, four screwdrivers, and an inch ruler. It also touts six hex wrenches and a letter opener, as well as a four distinct screwdrivers and a bottle opener, making it perfectly apt for both the repairs and relaxation afterward. Moreover, the Wallet Ninja comes with a lifetime guarantee — meaning the company will replace the tool if it ever becomes dull, rusts, or bends — and takes up no more space than your everyday credit card. It’s even TSA-approved to travel purposes. Just be sure to leave your nail clippers at the door.

Check out Tools for Ninja’s website for more information or to make a purchase. Additionally, the card set to hit shelves at a slew of major retailers, from Target to Walgreens, this holiday season.
