The cicada insect can be loud on hot summer nights. And the appropriately named (and shaped) Cicada from Columbia River Knife & Tool will cause a lot of buzz too with its many features. ItÌs a light, a cutting tool and a few other things, all rolled into one. A sharp 1.38" blade has an open thumb guide for easy opening. The LED flashlight is bright enough to light a dark hallway. And the small precision scissors wonÌt replace your trauma shears but will cut light fabric, tape and paper with ease. A pocket clip lets you secure the tool to your pants or gear, and the bottle opener may come in handy after a long shift.
