Turn Better, Fix More.

Let's face facts: one of the tools that you reach for a lot is a screwdriver. But a good screwdriver/bit driver is often hard to come by, and they are generally not well-suited for daily carry. That was the brief for the Cache River: to make a great screw and bit driver on a bearing that can easily be carried in-pocket on the daily. The Cache River comes complete with 3 bits and is a great sidekick to our knives, allowing you to tune up your blade and deal with other challenges that the day may bring. With its slim form, lanyard attachment and bearing-centered design the Cache River will quickly become an indispensable part of your EDC.

A $60 Phillips screwdriver? No regrets.

Ever tried to remove a doorknob? Short Phillips screwdrivers and most keychain gadgets have too much angle to get at the screws behind the knob. Long screwdrivers aren't pocketable. The Cache River was thin enough to get at the right angle, but thick enough to get a grip. And I didn't have to go back and dig around in my toolbox, it was right there with me.

The CR design is ingeniously simple with a strong magnetic bit holder, a spinning lanyard end that makes easy work of Phillips/Allen/Torx screws and a compartment for holding two more bits. A few users said they'd like the CR to be longer to hold three bits. But we know how that goes: Then we'd want four. And then it wouldn't fit in our pockets anymore. It seems to me that three bits (one on the CR and two in the chamber) are enough, especially since they're standard Wiha bits and can be changed out with bits you'd personally find more useful. I usually keep one bit and a drywall screw in there. Because as I'm always sayin' "No problem. A drywall screw fix that right up."

I thought spending $60 for glorified screwdriver seemed excessive. But it also seemed this thing might really be handy. And it is. It gets almost as much use as my pocket knife.

This thing is great, the only thing I think I would change is adding a cap to the tip or something. Otherwise, this thing is awesome.

Almost perfect

One of the three bits has to always be stored in the user position. This always leaves a potentially sharp end exposed and running the risk of injury to oneself if stored on persons or damage to clothing.

If stored in a pouch like the Alpaka Hub pouch one runs the risk of damaging said pouch.
