    I like the looks of the tool. However, I wouldn't find it as useful as a similar tool with more functionality, e.g., which could be employed as a screwdriver.

    Can the slot in the middle be used for something? Will a hex shaft fit in it?

    Fix up the V as a wire stripper with stepped notches for a wrench, thin down the back end for a screw driver and the point of the arrowhead as a phillips screwdriver.

    Innovative concept. +1 on the Phillips at the end. There aren't any tools AFAIK with a genuine Phillips like that. Ditto the stepped notches for a wrench. Peter's crawdaddy is the only tool that I know of that is similar. Doing that would be a nice addition to the market.

    Other comments:
    * I can't figure out how I would hold it. It's pretty obvious how to hold a prybaby, for example.
    * It lacks symmetry, at least for attaching to a keyring. Seems to me it would knock around a bit.
    * Why do you need 2 bottle openers? You can't use both simultaneously. Use the other side for a hex bit holder or a 3/8" open end.

    Anyway, a nice idea. Remember, everyone's a critic :)
