    The ''ShapeTool'' Multitool is a practical keychain accesory, useful for everyday tasks such as letter/cardboard box opening, cutting, screwing or puncturing.

    ''Shapetool'' specifications:
    Length: 7,9 cm / Height: 2,1 cm / Width: 0,35 cm / Blade Length: 3,6 cm / Weight: 23gr

    If the blade is sharpened by the user, then this sheath fits tight and securely for your every day carry.

    Hey, that's pretty darn cool! I'm pleased that it doesn't qualify as a 'weapon' in terms of printability, since it's quite utilitarian. Any evidence of the edge wearing down the sheath and becoming less snug over time after repeated sheathing/unsheathing? I don't imagine it'd be that much of an issue, just curious how your experience has been.

    Thanks! So far I had no significant deterioration. The sheath design helps because it anchors securely on the top of the ShapeTool besides nesting in the bottom blade area.

    This is the second variation of the ShapeTool.
    Slightly different, more practical, more functional, smaller overall and cheaper than the original.

    Available here.

    That really is awesome!

    always great to see 3d printed stuff that really can be used to do something with.

    And the final piece of the collection: The ShapeTool Pico.

    By far the smallest one, it only weighs 6 gr. and is just 3.4 cm long!
