Everybody loves multi-tools, right? Maybe it was all that Inspector Gadget we watched on Nickelodeon, but from the time we were kids, we’ve been fascinated with instruments that accomplish various functions. Who didn’t covet those pens that wrote in all different colors with just a click at the top? And we all know the first kid with a Swiss Army Knife got to be king for a day, or for an entire summer.
Our attraction to these apparatuses goes beyond their ease, efficiency, and convenience. It has something to do with the way they fold neatly together, closed but ever-ready for whatever awaits. Contained but full of potential energy. It’s a Nietzchean will to power: we all want some kind of multi-tool in our pockets.
A Nuggy in your pocket
If you’re a cannabis consumer, a great option for your pocket is the Nuggy by NugTools. This half-pound, palm-sized, guitar pick-shaped contraption will make your sessions simpler and more fun. Gone are the days of tearing paper to make a crutch or stuffing the end of your joint with a pencil. With its nine spring-locking, stainless steel tools plus LED light, the Nuggy resolves these problems and many more.
Need a roach clip? It’s got one. A mini spoon for kif? Got that too. Too much gunk in your pipe to pack it properly? The Nuggy includes a glassware-safe scraper and a pick to keep your bowl clean. Scissors, a tamper, a knife, a flathead screwdriver, and a bottle opener complete the collection of attachments.
Let’s be honest, the fact that the tools are connected to one another is a big deal. As a parent and cannabis consumer, I definitely don’t need any more individual pieces or tiny parts to keep track of and/or lose in my purse. The Nuggy is small but not so little that you’ll misplace it or leave it on your friend’s coffee table. It’s also easy to clean with a lighter and a rag.
Scientific terms like “annealing process” and “ultrasonic welding procedure” adorn the Nug Tools website. Meaning that the Nuggy is super durable and built to withstand all manner of physical stress. Take it from someone who has dropped it on numerous different surfaces, from pavement to granite countertop – this thing is virtually indestructible.
Simplicity and safety on the go
That makes it perfect for an on-the-go lifestyle. Whether you’re heading to an outdoor concert or playing a few rounds of golf, you should definitely take the Nuggy along. We’ve found it especially indispensable on camping trips, where many of the non-cannabis specific tools come in equally handy. You never have to worry about forgetting your bottle opener again, and the flashlight, though tiny, will provide eight continuous hours of illumination before you need to replace the batteries.
Because safety is a parent’s number one priority, we want to make sure our accoutrements are as secure as our cannabis. We love that the Nuggy’s tools lock into place both when opened and when closed. Each piece can be released with a simple lever. No blades accidentally in the hands of small children! And no danger of your tool slipping and slicing your skin when you’re packing, stuffing, or cutting.
The Nuggy really does feel like a ton of tools in one. It’s hard not to love the quality and versatility of this gadget, and especially the peace of mind that comes with its built-in safety mechanisms. We’re so grateful there’s a tool that makes our lives as cannabis consuming parents less complicated, and we’re excited to see what comes next from this company. We hope that includes new Nuggy colors!
