What Is The Nuggy?
The Nuggy by NugTools is an incredibly handy multi-tool that features 10 items that any level of toker would find useful. The tools packed comfortably into the 0.5-lb, 1” thick Nuggy are:
- A sharp scraper
- Flat-ended tamper
- Roach clip
- Metal pick
- Flathead screwdriver
- Bottle opener
- LED light
All of those tools are something that I have found myself needing to use for various cannabis situations, whether I was inside my apartment or out and about in the city or outdoors, so having all of them wrapped into one small item was extremely useful. I also noticed that all of tools except for the LED light are made from a sturdy and high-quality stainless steel, so I never felt any potential danger of damaging the Nuggy or my glass and vapes while using it.
While the Nuggy comes in weighing at only half a pound and measuring 2” long, it’s still about 1” thick, making it feel like a bit of a lump in your pocket. If you’re carrying around a bag or purse it’s an absolute breeze to chuck the Nuggy in there and be on your way, but don’t expect a comfortable fit directly in your pockets.
The Nuggy in Action
While the tools of the Nuggy are sturdy, strong, and easy to use, pulling out the tools can pose a bit of a challenge. In order to release and use a particular tool in the Nuggy, you have to grip the small metal levers attached to each tool (except for the LED light) with either your finger, fingernail, or any other item you want and pull back with a bit more force and effort than you may expect. While this can be a little annoying at times, I understand it’s designed this way for safety purposes, which is fair given the Nuggy’s small size and friendly green color potentially looking attractive to curious children or pets.
Thankfully, despite this minor grievance, the Nuggy does a great job of being a toker’s handy device for any situation. When I wanted to roll a blunt, the knife tool was right there to easily slice my wrap. When I needed to clean out the ashes and Scooby snacks in my bowl before packing a fresh one, out came the pick tool. When I needed to roll a joint, I already had the tamper tool nearby to poke my material down into the paper. I even used the scissors to quickly cut up some herb when my grinder wasn’t around!
I could keep going, but it’s already obvious that the Nuggy comes equipped with a tool for any situation you may find yourself in. This even goes for non-cannabis situations since there’s a freakin’ bottle opener and flathead screwdriver at the ready as well!
Whether I was assembling my Ikea nightstand, opening a beer, or rolling a joint, the Nuggy had something for me to use. While it can be a bit chunky in your pocket, its overall small size and shape make it very easy to carry in a bag or container. I don’t usually carry around pocket knives or other general multi-tool devices, but I was very surprised at how often I found myself reaching for this helpful little guy, so I would definitely recommend the Nuggy for any level of consumer to always be equipped with essential toker tools, no matter the consumption method.
