Lil Guppie

Li'l Guppie One year after introducing the original Guppie, Columbia River brought out a scaled down version and christened it the Li'l Guppie. Gone is the on-board bit carrier and LED light, but the tradeoff is a thinner smaller tool that is more convenient to carry.

Wrench

Unlike regular wrenches, the wrench jaws on the Li'l Guppie are serrated, like plier jaws. There are fine serrations out to the tip, with a coarse serrated gripping area in near the base. Maximum jaw opening is 7/16 inch (11mm).

Frame

The intricate frame of the Guppie is cast and cut from a single piece of stainless steel. Finish is bead blast stainless, with a few components given a deep black finish for contrast.

Utilizing a spring loaded gate, a large cut-out portion of the frame functions as a carabiner. (Note that the carabiner is not intended for weight-bearing applications.)

Blades and Tools

The knife blade on the Li'l Guppie is 1-1/2 inch long (40mm). It features a drop point profile, with a large thumbhole for one hand opening.

Locking Mechanism

The knife blade does not lock open.

Other Features

  • A flathead screwdriver is cast solid into the end opposite the wrench.
  • The Li'l Guppie's "fin" functions as a bottle opener.
  • Opening the wrench causes a phillips screwdriver to appear.
  • A pocket clip is secured to one side.

Sheath

None.

Dimensions

  • Length = 3" (77mm)
  • Width = 1-1/2" (39mm)
