There’s no shortage of multitools on the market these days, but not all strike the same elegant tone of The James Brand’s offerings. The latest from the Portland-based toolmaker is a basic but stylish bit driver, which neatly stows its extra bits away in its cylindrical body.

The James Brand's new Cache River tool is shaped like an oversized pen, with a magnetic bit holder found where the nib would be. Included with the tool are Phillips #2, Torx T6 & Wiha Slotted 4.5 bits, with the two that aren’t being used able to be packed inside the anodized aluminum body, which screws open for easy access.

With a weight of just 1.2 oz (36 g), length of 3.9 in (9.9 cm) and diameter of 0.53 in (1.4 cm), the Cache River is designed to be easily slipped into a pocket when not in use. A lanyard attachment point at its base opens up other options, however, enabling it to also be hooked up to a keyring or belt loop.

The James Brand’s Cache River tool is available now, and is priced at US$60.

Beautiful, and beautifully made, but for everyday use I think I'll stick with the Sparkfun version with similar size and weight but 7 bits for $3.99.

$60 for a 3-bit tool - it had better be elegant and refined.

While there isn’t a lot of refinement in the similar sized, bits stored inside, tool we have, it cost only $5.

Something in between with nice refinement for $20 might be more interesting.
