Innovation and Integrity. To Us, Nothing Matters More.
These convictions come first. Innovation means building products that will continue to lead and define the industry in terms of creativity and utility; it means constantly asking ourselves how we can be better. For the past 25 years, we’ve released industry-shifting innovations and worked with some of the most renowned custom and independent knife designers in the world. What really ties it all together though, is our true guiding light.
We are guided by integrity—this is critical to how we’ve chosen to do business. It means interacting with our customers and each other honestly and directly. It also means building products that perform reliably and a brand that behaves consistently, decade after defining decade. We were born in Oregon, and our knives and tools truly reflect the rugged terrain from which they come. That, to us, makes all the difference.

Launce Barber and Tom Stokes designed the patented* Guppie as part of our innovative I.D. Works line of tools. While some think it's cute, it really is a hard-working carabiner tool with dozens of everyday uses. The adjustable wrench jaw opens to 1/2" 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. (But it is not a weight-bearing carabiner.)The high-carbon stainless steel blade with a Razor-Sharp edge can be opened and closed with one hand using the blade slot. The removable bit carrier is also a high-intensity LED light. It has two strong magnets to hold it securely to the Guppie's left side. The stainless steel clip will hold the Guppie in your pocket or on gear, which gives a lot of versatility.The Guppie makes a great little money clip, too, for those who like to keep a thin wallet. One more trick: The Guppie carabiner detent will open bottle caps and metal jar lids.Specifications:Blade Length: 2" (50.8 mm)Edge: PlainSteel: 2Cr13Blade Finish: OxideBlade Thickness: 0.104" (2.64 mm)Grind: HollowClosed Length: 3.5" (88.9 mm)Open Length: 5.5" (139.7 mm)Weight: 4.1 oz (116.23g)Handle: Stainless SteelStyle: Multi-Tool with Slip JointSheath Weight: 0.9 oz (25.51g)

Now the good: the blade is small and very sharp, and the straight edge is easy to keep sharp. The tool tapers toward the socket opening, making it easier to get the included bits into tighter spots (you could also mix and match small bits and even extenders from something like a Leatherman bit set to round it out). The small crescent wrench may not be extremely practical (it doesn't open very wide) but it's not for car repair - it's just for occasional spur-of-the-moment needs. For that use, it's nice to have a tool that is almost impossible to find in other multi-tools.
Perhaps my ideal implementation of the Guppie would actually be simply removing the plastic portion and clipping the tool to my Leatherman Wave pouch, which contains the Wave and two sleeves full of bits from the bit kit they sell. That way, the Guppie provides a new tool, and an easier-to-access knife blade where needed. Or, just fiddle with the spotty flashlight performance and possibility of losing the bits, should the magnets fail - still a reasonable bargain for a useful tool.
The remainder of the tool is sub-par, but will passably do the job if needed. I am surprised at the shoddy workmanship, design and execution of a relatively-popular tool. I am planning on keeping the tool as it "works" and essentially does what it's supposed to. I wish I had seen one in person in a store before purchasing. I'm not one of those people who picks apart products based on made up characteristics, or unrealistic expectations, but just a realist giving honest feedback.
Of the items poorly designed:
1) Belt clip/carabiner - a tremendous amount of slop in the jaw at the pivot point. So much that it actually won't self-latch at times. Not a big deal in my case, but still shoddy design and workmanship.
2) The adjustment for the wrench head/jaw has a lot of play between the gears of the bottom jaw and the adjuster screw. It's just a subpar design with poorly manufactured/sourced components. This is a real disappointment for me, as this is half the tool functionality for me.
3) Several of the screws were stripped in the assembly process. The main screw holding the wrench adjustment mechanism was clearly overtightened and stripped, damaging the case. As were the tiny Torx belt clip screws.
4) The LED light is very poor. Whatever the lumen output, it's a nominal difference above just letting one's eyes adjust to the environment. A single match puts out more light.
5) The tool caddy for the four included bits has no mechanism by which to hold the bits in place (other than friction). The result is inevitable bit loss.
On the plus side:
1) The knife is sharp and stays that way.
2) The tool caddy is magnetic.
3) The tool itself is overall small, but the body is substantial enough to give weight and strength.
The bottom line: for me, it's a $25 poorly designed small adjustable wrench and hex bit driver. If you are considering one of these, I'd highly recommend trying to see one in person before committing to buying. There are probably other tools out there which can accomplish the same things, or a collection of small implements may do the same thing in a better executed fashion.
I use the wrench occasionally to tighten or loosen bolts as needed. It’s not solid or sturdy but works for what I need it for.
The attachment with a light and the Bits is magnetic and it falls off so I set that aside and forgot about it. I would like to see CRKT scrap everything and make a double sided bit that screws into the end and stays there.
If you need a knife, carabiner and occasionally a wrench, this little tool works. If you need a good multi tool without the wrench, I suggest buying a Leatherman or Gerber.
To be more specific, the area that broke was the adjustable wrench portion. The whole movable head and adjustment knob fell out completely. I have no idea why, either. It isn't like it was being put through any stress, it mostly stayed right on my belt loop or in my pocket. I have had dainty cell phones with glass fronts and no protective case last longer in my pocket than this hunk. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for a quality product.
Top international reviews
- Lama senza blocco che può chiudersi sulle dita, - Far uscire i bit dai loro alloggi è un'impresa perché molto duri.
- Luce led completamente inutile, fa più luce un accendino e il pulsante è molto duro e bisogna tenerlo premuto.
Amo i multitool e ne ho parecchi, questo mi ha incuriosito per il design e per il fatto che ha un morsetto ma non lo consiglio a nessuno, non lo ricomprerei assolutamente. Buttatevi su leatherman o victorinox
The knife is very sharp 🖒 but I have to disagree with other reviewers because it does not fit well in my hand. If it was a bit bigger this may be a better tool.
La qualità costruttiva è indiscutibile, robusto e compatto, dispone inoltre di un'ottima lama che non mi sarei mai aspettato in un utensile simile.
L'unica pecca che mi sento di segnalare è la facilità con cui si può perdere il blocchetto che regge le punte perché è incastrato al corpo e calamitato.
Ho preferito assicurarlo tramite uno spago passante per l'anellino del blocco nero e infilato nel moschettone.
In ogni caso ottimo utensile!
The blade is nice and sharp compared to other multitools i owned.
Carabiner clip is nice and like to hear it click when attaching it to my belt or pouch.
Its got a great combination of tools, and the wrench is something which comes handy for various things. From the size of the tool it is quite evident that its not meant for extreme utility and I knew this before I bought the tool. But the size also makes it easy to carry it in the pocket. The design of the tool is great too, they've used the space on the tool quite well.
I love this tool and always keep it in my pocket.
the item is as described.
