Loggerhead Tools produces a number of different sizes and configurations of their Bionic Wrench. The Immix 10X model is the first (and only) variation that has folding knife blades. A set of ten hex bits is carried on board, hence the 10X name.

The Immix 10X uses the patented Bionic Wrench principle of adjustable jaws. Opening and closing the handles causes a series of cams to drive six individual jaws. Operation is quite smooth. Capacity of the jaws ranges from 7/32" up to a max of 9/16" (6mm to 15mm) Note that the bionic wrench requires considerable clearance in order to access a nut or bolt.
Handles are stamped from heavy gauge sheet metal. (not stainless steel) They are given a black oxide - or nickel plate - finish. (see Variations below)
The handles snap together securely when the 10X is not in use.
Both blades are outside opening, neither blade locks open.
- plain edge clip point blade, 2-3/4" long (70mm)
- fully serrated sheepsfoot blade, 2-3/4" long (70mm)
Neither of the knife blades lock open.
A removable rubber bit carrier with ten standard 1/4" bits fits securely into one handle. These bits can be driven either with the bionic wrench, or with the bit receptacle in the far end of the tool. (see photo) A magnet holds keeps the bit from falling out of the bit receptacle.
Woven nylon construction, with velcro closure. Straps on the back allow for both vertical and horizontal carry.
