Called Zai HIGO, the two are inspired by the Higonokami knife that was popular in 19th century Japan.
They feature a lever so they can be opened, locked and closed with one hand.
The multi-tool has two different screwdriver heads that are designed for adjusting ski bindings.
Both items have aluminium cases, while the blade and tool tips are made of steel. The automatic locking mechanism incorporates hidden magnets.
This is Hamilton's second project for the brand and follows the carbon-fibre axe that we published last month.
