Kershaw has released a new one piece multitool into the wild: the Downforce. The Downforce is a minimalist gadget with a small tool spread and a restrained footprint.
As a genre, the one piece multitool obviously imposes certain size, weight, and functionality restrictions. So the Downforce’s profile is slim, resembling a piston arm – which is probably no accident, given that its name refers to a gravitational phenomenon important in Formula 1 racing, and the bright orange GFN crossbar is a nod to the famous McLaren race car color scheme.
Kershaw built four main features into this slender form factor: a bottle opener, flathead driver-combination-mini pry bar, and a 3D phillips head driver. The addition of the cross bar could, for sticklers, discount the Downforce from the one piece multitool category – but because it’s removable, and solely an aesthetic feature, we’re going to give it a pass.
