At just under 30mm square, the Tweak 8 from Axiom is by far the smallest multi-tool we’ve ever tested. It can fit easily on your house keys and sit happily in your pocket until it’s needed.
Okay, that tiny size does limit it when it comes to applying serious torque to anything, but we have managed to remove a pair of pedals with it. For the little adjustments and small-scale fettles however, it’s brilliant.
The alloy body and chrome vanadium steel tool bits are sturdy enough that they don’t come loose. There are 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6mm Allen keys – it would’ve been nice to see a 2.5mm for Lock-On grips on there but other than that the essentials are covered.
At this price we wouldn’t think twice about picking one of these up, sticking it on our keys and forgetting about it until the time comes.
