It folds up small—about the size of a flip phone—but the Gerber Octane conceals tools that feel as sturdy and functional as the ones in your fix-it shed. The meaty handles provide a firm grip when you’re using the pliers or locking 2.5-inch blade. And of course you still get the usual tools like screwdrivers, can opener, and, yes, a bottle opener. And all for a mere five ounces. $68; gerbergear.com
