Last year we raved about the Horizon Helvetica®, an artist-oriented piece of EDC designed to pretty much replace conventional stationery kits. This time, the Horizon Helvetica® returns with its little sibling, the Horizon Key®, a keychain-friendly multitool that looks and functions as a scale but also moonlights as a hex wrench, bottle opener, basic protractor, flat-head screwdriver, mini-saw, and wire ripper. Designed to be more compact than the card-shaped Horizon Helvetica®, the Key® fits right in your keychain while the Horizon Helvetica® sits in your wallet. Together, both of Horizon’s tools cover every creative tinkerer’s need, from sketching and planning, to repairing and modifying.

The Horizon Helvetica® from last year still holds its position as one of the most creative-oriented EDC multitools on the market. Its name comes from the iconic sans-serif font, known for its supremacy and versatility. With a credit-card-shaped form factor, it allows you to sketch and doodle, measure distances and angles, create grids and circles for planned drawings, and even has a dedicated measuring scale for pixels and picas, making itself incredibly useful to graphic and interface designers who can use the Horizon Helvetica® to create UI sketch prototypes on paper before taking their concepts into Figma, Sketch, Illustrator, or any other design software.

The Horizon Key®, on the other hand, is a more hands-on tool designed for industrial designers, engineers, and overall tinkerers. Made for technical and physical applications, the Horizon Key® is a linear instrument with as many as 12 tools hidden inside its form factor. Its linear design makes it a perfect miniature ruler, which can be used for drawing lines as well as measuring objects in imperial as well as metric units. An inner cutout in the Key® also works as a multi-size hex wrench for opening and tightening bolts, while a smaller cutout on the outside serves as a spoke key for working on bicycle wheels. The Key® also has a mini-saw, a bottle opener, a wire-stripper, a flat-head screwdriver, and a protractor (angle indicator) built into it. Measuring under 3 inches in length and just 0.04 inches (1.2mm) thick, the Key® strings right into your keychain, letting you carry it wherever you go.

Both the Horizon Helvetica® and Key® come laser-cut from 304 Stainless Steel, and are available in a number of anodized color options with two more colors (Irish Green and Classic Blue) being added this year. Portability being their paramount feature, the Helvetica® and Key® are designed with a pocket-friendly format, and are even rated TSA-friendly for travel. You can grab both tools at £31 ($39 USD), with the option to only buy one of the tools (if you bought the Helvetica last year), or grab add-ons like the Horizon Memo Book, or a genuine Italian leather card-holder for your Helvetica®. Both the Horizon Helvetica® and Key® are perfect for anyone with a creatively-aligned mind, and start shipping in November 2023.
