Multitools come in just about every shape and size. Some feature assortments of Allen wrenches and screwdrivers, others are larger and contain small blades, files, and pliers. But some can be clunky and are better spent resting in a toolbox rather than your pocket or dangling from your belt. The M.100 Multitool from Tactica, a Melbourne, Australia-based multitool company that launched in 2016, does not fall into the clunky category. The M.100 is built to be a light, compact, scratch-free tool you can carry wherever your heart desires — even on an airplane.
Tactica M.100 Multitool: First Glance
The M.100 features an ultra-lightweight composite construction. It weighs 1.6 ounces and spans 3 inches in length by 1.5 inches in width.
The tool’s carabiner-like shape makes attaching it to your belt loop or slipping it in your pocket for quick access easy. It has no sharp edges and a no-scratch surface so you don’t have to worry about dinging or damaging items that share real estate with the M.100, like cell phone screens or sunglasses.
The multitool’s composite outer shell is resilient and sleek. The reinforced core, made from 420-grade stainless steel, provides extra strength so you can trust the tool will hold up when being used as a screwdriver or wrench.
Owing to its lack of sharp edges, the Tactica M.100 Multitool meets TSA requirements for carry-on luggage. So don’t worry about removing it from a bag or being forced to ditch it at the checkpoint.

Every part of Tactica’s M.100 is ready to perform a task. The EDC multitool comprises nearly a dozen unique tools throughout its frame.
