The Silca Italian Army Knife Tredici (13) Tools, is a shiney red multi tool with even shiner chrome silver tools. Its a thing of beauty to behold but better much better than that it is a serious tool that should give many years service at the side of the road or trail.
The Italian Army Knife, a very SILCA take on the traditional multi-tool. We've addressed the things that frustrate us with conventional multi-tools, while keeping the layout which fits so conveniently in your pocket
The .IA.K. as we have come to know and love this product combines fully forged mid-length tools with forged aluminium side plates and full stainless steel hardware. The mid-length tool design is long enough to provide access to recessed fasteners, but short enough not to experience twist or damage under moderate torque as experiences on longer tools. All tools are forged rather than bent from hex stock, this method of construction is more expensive, but worth it on the side of the road!
Mid length tools also allow us to position the tools within the same plane, this reduces the thickness of the overall package by half. Double chromed tools and fully stainless steel hardware and bushings guarantee a long life without corrosion (the number 2 killer of multi-tools is corrosion, number 1 is loss!)
Forged aluminium sidebars contain rare-earth magnets for holding a spare chain connector.
