The Revo Duo Can Handle Beer Bottles or Regular Knife Stuff
Revo popped into Blade Show West with their first ever multi-tool. The Duo is a hefty little thing with a 9Cr18MoV steel blade and a toolbar set into the body. The tool bar includes a slotted drive at the end and a prong that can operate admirably as a bottle opener and a seatbelt cutter.
It’s not exactly lightweight for its size at about 3.5 oz, but it’s compact, and rides in the pocket pretty well with a reversible deep carry pocket clip. The handle is a set of G-10 scales with steel bolsters, available in orange, OD green, and brown, while the steel itself is a stonewash finish (blade, tool, and bolsters) available in black or gray.
As for the blade itself, it’s a slicey, thin little thing about 2.5” long with another set of options: drop point, sheepsfoot, or tanto.
Revo designers wanted this multitool to feel like a regular folding knife. To that end, the blade opens on its own with a flipper tab, while the toolset is a little nail nick riding to the side with its own locking system that releases by a tab on the back of the handle.
It’s a clever little design with a lot of utility, and is pretty well in keeping with Revo’s cost-effective innovation up to this point. It’s available now with an MSRP of $95, but most vendors look to be selling it in the $60 – 70 range.
