    Considered it, but don't like its shape and it not being flat.

    I really want a MyKey 2.0, but can't find a source.

    Mine is sharp enough to open a clamshell. The edge can be sharpened but then I wouldn’t carry on my keychain.

    I use the Doohickey on a couple of different 'tool' key rings. One also has a small County Comm 'widgy bar' on it which has a sharper edge for scraping. The Doohickey is my primary go-to though. But then again I ALWAYS have a blade or two for opening a box! :)

    L'chaim!

    Have you considered a keychain arts & craft blade keychain knife? I have one that is steel with a screw cap which I purchased off KickStarter. It isn’t much bigger than chapstick tube.

    What’s the make and name of this prybar?

    I love the fact that it has thinner cut out on nail pullers. It's quite irritating to see that most pry bars have flat nail pullers.

    It was cut from a Roughneck 7"utility bar, bought for some 6 euros from a big online store. It is quite wide and feels strong for its small size.

    I took some time to understand the utility of the pry bar
    ..or, thats maybe not very accurate. It´s not hard to understand why you would want one, but the concept had to grow on me before I realized how it was relevant to my use case, as well as how I could implement it in my EDC. That is still a work in progress though.
    [​IMG]
    3 (or was it 4?) from 1 - three dirt cheap alternatives from Maratac / CC. For the occasion lit up by a Maratac AAA Rev. 5

    I understand that pry-bars is a whole game of it´s own, and infinate amounts of money can be spent on these tools alone. I´m not there yet.
    I really want to take advantage of the pry-bar as the rough, tough, simple and affordable tool it can be. Something I can abuse, loose and keep backups and spares of, so there is always one at hand.
    My initial plan was to make one my self. I´m no mechanic I assure, but these are simple tools and a nice opportunity to learn some new skills.
    I haven´t come around to that yet. There´s just too much going on, but I´m intermittently keeping an eye up for raw materials, so I´ll get there. Eventually.
    To get going, I bought some affordable options from CountyComm. All bought on different instances, and different stores even, so it´s really more or less coincidence that they are all from the same brand/maker. One is a very small and light titanium pry-bar that lives on my key-chain.
    One is actually a pocket flat head screw driver, but works wonderfully as a pry tool. It pops beer bootles and open boxes like nobodies business.
    The last one just arrived, so can´t give it any credentials yet. It´s in, what seems to be a little known alloy called, D9 (not related to D2). It seems like a useful tool in a very manageble size. It´s intended for wallet / pocket organizer carry, so that´s why I went with a flat type. Kind of replacing the pry-screw-driver in that regard.
