What do mechanics, outdoorsmen, and film crew members have in common? They all like to take just about any excuse to whip out their trusted multitool. Now, thanks to the purpose-built Bar10der, the multitool collective can include another group of people – bartenders.
As its name implies, the Bar10der includes ten tools commonly used by mixologists. These include a muddler, for crushing fruit, herbs and spices; a reamer, for squeezing juice from fruit; a stirrer; half-ounce and one-ounce jiggers; a 4-inch (10-cm) knife; a channel knife, for creating twists and other garnishes; a corkscrew; a zester; a strainer; and, not to be forgotten, a bottle opener.
Since professional bartenders would likely possess all of these tools already, the Bar10der is aimed more at home users. It’s made from stainless steel and BPA-free plastic (plus it has a rubber handle) so it shouldn’t rust easily, or release toxins.
The Bar10der is available in four colors, and is priced at US$49.99.
