Add Some Utility To Your EDC With The James Brand’s Billet Aluminum Hex Driver

Good everyday carry gear is all about offering utility in a pocketable and rugged form, though traditionally these aren’t traits that can be used to describe most screw and bit drivers. Knowing this, The James Brand’s Portland-based team of EDC experts set out to design the ultimate EDC driver, giving way to The Cache River.

The compact tool has been CNC-machined from aerospace-grade 6061 aluminum billet, before being black-anodized for added durability. Equipped with a ball-bearing pivot, this handy little driver also comes with a Phillips #2 bit, Torx T6 morning bit, and slotted 4.5 bit—all of which have magnetic attachments and are precision machined from a special chrome-vanadium molybdenum tool steel from Minnesota’s Wiha. A screw-down top reveals a cavity that can accommodate two bits, while the end-cap sports a lanyard loophole for easy attachment to keychains and the like. The Cache River was previously available exclusively through TJB’s Rover Capsule, though repeated customer demand has prompted the Northwestern EDC outfit to release the bit driver a la carte as a standalone item that now bares a blacked-out finish. Spanning 3.9” in length and 0.53” in diameter, The Cache River affords enough surface area and grip space to provide the leverage and torque needed for real-world uses. Available now, The James Brand The Cache River bit driver tool is priced at $60.
