This week we bring you the WREX Titanium Adjustable Pocket Wrench by PocketToolX.

Recently, the folks at Pocket Tool X introduced a new spin on their extremely popular Piranha tool. The WREX has an adjustable locking wrench, knife blade, and wire stripper.

From the manufacturer:

The WREX adjustable pocket wrench is precision machined in the USA from high-grade 6AL-4V titanium, heat-treated 154CM stainless steel, and weighs only 2.9 oz (only 50% heavier than a Piranha). Boasting a trigger-lock adjustable wrench jaw, this tool will adapt to any situation. Add a replaceable titanium coated knife blade and you are truly ready for anything, including stripping the occasional wire. Forget about the blade at airport security? No problem – use the onboard driver bit to remove the blade so that you are TSA-friendly! This USA made, full-sized, rust resistant bit is secured by the built-in neoprene bit holder and conveniently hides in the body.

The WREX sells for $179 through the manufacturer’s site.

Both the Piranha and Wrex make interesting choices when you are in situations that bar Leatherman Multi-tools or the like. Jonathan, co-host of ITRH Urban Survival Podcast, recently told me, “After carrying the Piranha around for a couple of months, they are a distant second choice when you can carry a Leatherman. But, when you can’t they are great.
