The CRONO N5 LEATHER Recycled Multi-Tool is a useful companion that can be quickly stowed in your pocket, handbag, backpack or suitcase. The practical pocket knife is an extremely light and sustainable Swiss multi-tool. Produced in Switzerland they keep transport routes short. Everything can be taken apart for recycling in the end. Metal is a great material because it recycles forever.
The CRONO N5 features a self-locking fan mechanism. This means that you can easily open it and lock it back after. The leather strap is a great way to grip the N5, the loop also allows me to attach it to my backpack. The leather is recycled cow leather.
The N5 packs a screwdriver, bottle opener, knife, fish scaler, wire stripper / staple remover, scale (cm), hex nut KW 8/7 /5.5/4, M5 wing nut opener, bradawl and sewing, square big/small, fork.
When out camping I used the blade to cut and prepare food. The blade is sharp, and I was lucky to have that self-locking mechanism. I have also used the screwdriver end a couple of times on camping equipment.
I have been using it for well over a month, and the metal is showing no signs of rust. This is even with all the water, dirt and washing that it has gone through.
Overall, CRONO N5 LEATHER Recycled Multi-Tool is a great piece of kit. It’s light, small, and also good for the environment.
