Claiming to be the world’s first tactical hairclip, the Tacticlip aims to add new functionality to a humble everyday item.

Instead of simply holding your hair back from your face, the Tacticlip is a “covert multitool” that comes in camouflage colorways for brown and blond hair. It has a mini screwdriver, a wire stripper, a serrated edge, a wick holder and a raptor claw pointed tip, all in a tiny package.

If you are in the market for a stealth multitool, the Tacticlip is about as small as you can get. It seems like a useful item to have around for emergencies, so those heading off on wilderness hikes might be a good target market.

However, you have to wonder how safe it is to have two sharp edges on something that ostensibly sits next to your skin. Perhaps the designers have thought of that and made it safe to wear, but it’s impossible to say without trying one out.

Either way, the Tacticlip attracted a great deal of interest on Kickstarter, receiving full funding for its campaign. You can get four Tacticlips for $15 from the Kickstarter campaign page, and shipping is scheduled for October this year.
