Vacation Knives: CRKT Guppie


Tom Stokes and Launce Barber designed the Guppie as part of Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT)’s I.D. Works line of tools. It’s a hard-working carabiner tool with dozens of uses.

The adjustable wrench jaw opens to a half-inch so you can use it for all kinds of light repair and assembly jobs. Thanks to the carabiner gate, the Guppie is easy to carry on a belt loop, D-ring, pack or rope. It’s not a weight-bearing tool, though (sorry, mountain climbers).

The high-carbon, stainless steel 2″ blade with a Razor-Sharp edge can be worked with one hand using the blade slot.

The removable bit carrier is also a high-intensity LED light. Two magnets hold it securely to the Guppie’s left side. The stainless steel clip will hold the Guppie in your pocket or on gear. This adds another layer of versatility.

The Guppie makes a great little money clip, too, for those who prefer it over a thin wallet.

If that weren’t enough, the Guppie carabiner detent will open bottle caps and metal jar lids.
