The Cicada is another innovative tool in the I.D. Works line, designed by Dana Bainbridge and Joseph Sundby of Roundhouse Media in Portland, Oregon.
This small oval contains a high carbon steel pen knife blade that is Razor-Sharp and useful for many cutting tasks. It also has a small precision scissors. It's not designed for big jobs, but it comes in handy for cutting and trimming.
Just push the button forward and it's a bright little LED flashlight, really useful in dark entryways.
There's also a very productive bottle opener for your favorite sodas and microbrews.
You can carry the Cicada on a key ring and it will be there to light the way and be ready to go to work when you need it.
It also comes with an injection-molded carry caddy. The caddy's stainless steel clip has a special retaining lip that will keep it firmly attached to personal flotation devices.
You can also carry the Cicada in your pocket or purse, and use the clip as a money clip.
What's creating all the buzz? Maybe it's the Cicada busy working
