SILCA | Italian Veni Army Knife $46 – The everyday carry must-have

The forged mid-length tools are long enough to reach all common cycling fasteners, but not so long that they twist or deform under load. The ergonomic side plates also hold a secret magnetic storage feature for a spare master link, and all tools are coated with SILCA’s unique high-grip chrome plating which provides better torque transfer at the bolt interface.
