NUKOHEAD from Nukotools - Leave an Impression

I would like to thank 2 Cent Tactical for the introduction to Nukotools and the general concept of non-metallic ‘multipurpose’ key fobs. The fact that the law is very specific about metallic construction in Canada with regards to nucks.

This is a Nukohead in 'Twill' carbon fiber, a top and bottom layer sandwiched between a unidirectional layers of carbon fiber. It is well crafted, lightweight (26 grams). When I go for a run, I carry my keys on a Nukohead. It has silky, smooth edges which makes it feel comfortable in your hand. There are no sharp edges to tear your pocket or impede withdrawal from your pocket either. Due to its non-magnetic and non-metallic nature, it is perfect for discreet carry in non-permissive environments. I carry it regularly with my Zebra F-701 stainless steel pen (that will be another blog though) for that reason.

Why Carbon Fiber?

Lightweight, very strong and non-metallic.

Carbon fibers are combined with other materials to form a composite. These composites have a very high strength to weight ratio. They are extremely rigid but can be brittle. Hence, why multidirectional layer has been incorporated into the NUKOHEAD. 

Advantages of the NUKOHEAD

  • Fits like a glove
  • Compact for discreet carry
  • Designed for EDC
  • Non-metallic
  • Non-magnetic
  • Made in Canada

Disadvantages of the NUKOHEAD

It will not fit well in hipster skinny jeans. Thankfully, I am not a hipster.

The NUKOHEAD from Nukotools is part of my everyday carry and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Take Care Out There
