Spyderco Spyderench

The Spyderench by Spyderco, is possibly the most ingenious multitool that I own. It’s very refreshing to see a design that totally ignores what has gone on before, and tries to come up with something totally radical.

The Spyderench separates into two distinct parts, enabling the adjustable wrench to be used separately from the bit driver / knife section, which is very useful, for undoing bolts etc. There is also a detachable Phillips / diamond file, meaning that the tool can effectively be broken down into three separate tools (plus 4 hex bits), making it incredibly versatile. In addition to detaching the two main parts of the tool, they can also be rotated from the carry position to lock into an extended position, great for grip and applying torque. The options seem almost endless, but here’s some of the main, obvious features:

  • – The AUS 8, part serrated one hand opening blade can be deployed whilst either detached from the tool, or whilst connected. The knife has a lock-back arrangement and features the Spyderco Round Hole (TM), and is one of the best blades available on a multitool.
  • – Splip-joint Pliers
  • – Hex bit driver with 4 hex bits “on board”
  • – Pocket Clip or Sheath carry
  • – Wire cutters
  • – Plenty more, including probably things that I haven’t found yet!

One of the most impressive things about the Spyderench is that it fits all of this versatility into a frame comparable size and weight to a Leatherman Charge, Wave etc.

All in all, this tool is a must have for any collector.

    There is a chap that sells Spyderench’s intermittently on US Ebay , he claims to be the designer. He offers PE & CE versions. The Byrdrench definitely comes in a PE , I think that is the one I will get, it is cheaper too (smiley).
