    The maker (JK Knives) has a kydex sheath available for this tool, but I'm going to try it on my keychain first.

    I keep these in my vehicle the small hammer pry bar is a crate opener which are hard to find, but I have 3. I keep one in my car bag and the other is a Gorilla Bar 14 inch model. It's a forged steel bar that one stays in the trunk area. They also make a 24, 36 and 48 inch model I have one of each for those times when more leverage is needed but they don't get edc'd.

    I remember my dad having one of those hammer prybars when I was a kid.

    Wonder if he still has it :). It did I lose it on him :(.

    I found them on ebay varying prices but they now seem to be hard to find or expensive.

    Here are some of my pry bars. These are Gorilla Bars fairly cheap but very strong, I've used the 2 foot and 3 footer for tearing apart the stairs on my deck. I haven't used the 4 footer as you can see it still has the label on it. Oh and so much for epoxy floor paint, I followed the steps on the can and about 2 years later it peeled right up in spots.

    Some places :rolleyes_revamped: have some of the old original ones with a fair amount of life left in them for dirt cheap.

    The more expensive ones seem to be the ones made from non-sparking alloys.

    Reasonably priced new ones (although they don't claim to be non-sparking) can be found at.... wait for it, wait for it.... restaurant supply companies. Actually this seems to be the best/most attainable source for these.

    I am such a :censored: research geek. :(:oops:

    When I said expensive I wasn't talking about the non sparking ones I meant the ones on ebay had more or less tripled in price compared to when I picked up the few 2 I found there. I also know about the restaurant supply angle but the ones I checked require a minimum order. When I want something I search until I 1 either can't find a source or 2 the price is to high or 3 I find it for the right price. I will sometimes wait a few months and do a search again sometimes you are lucky to find what you want on a spur of the moment search. That's what happens when you can't sleep.

    I put the pico and micro widgies on the to buy list, but for now I've got a flat head driver off a cheap SAK on my keys for prying. I keep a smaller bar in the trunk though.

    I don't use my 4" Pocket Widgy (bought from CC site) as much as I use my Boker VAT.

    I just got a Sidekick, which came with a Croc.

    I really like the Croc, except for it's Stainless construction (wish it was titanium). The wide flat scraper/pry side is awesome.

    Basically a Pirahna (spelling??) without bit cutouts.

    I find mine to be useful for a lot of things. Just a note there are 2 sizes one that is about 6 inches and one closer to 9 inches, I have both sizes and find the larger to be more useful.

    The restaurant supply chains that cater to business only have minimum orders. Since the advent of prosumer/heavy hobbyist cooks there are quite a few chains that cater to business as well as the general public. Those generally don't have minimum orders. In some cases, end-user sales actually account for an impressive amount of their sales.... wisdom from a ex-foodie/gourmet/food-geek girlfriend.

    eBay has an odd "trending" model where when something samples as "popular" pricing goes into a wonky "what the market will bear mode." This is the kind of silly, that keeps are fairly recent 3 song EP that was only available at concerts above the $75-$100 mark.

    Insomnia is a terrible thing to waste or.....

    I bought the Nite Ize Doohickey and I wasn't as impressed with it as a previous poster. I had beef with the weak clip. Barely any spring and that is the only available attachment point. What could I expect for 5$....I'll stick with my boker VAT on the keys.

    My gal, on the other hand, snatched it up fast when I offered it to her.. Mainly, because it was black and matched her locking nite ize s-biner that holds her keys together.. Good. Small Pry Bar for Favorite Lady - Checked Off list. 8)

    Google "Tupper Knife & Tool"

    He has a Tumblr account that he uses to display his work and sells on Etsy as "TupperKnifeAndTool'.
