    Well it's the smallest, newest and shiniest in my humble little collection. I have EDC'd Gerbers Shard for a number of years and I like the patina [​IMG]

    I love my Shard, and it’s certainly ageing nicely!

    [Edit] Speaking of which, and please bear in mind I’m in the UK, so options may be different from your own, I’m still wondering about acquiring more pry bars myself.

    I currently have the Leatherman Piranha 2, the Leatherman Brewzer, the Gerber Shard, and the Nite Ize DoohicKey (which Mrs. EMarkM hasn’t yet realised I’ve slipped onto her keyring recently!)

    In a new pry tool, I wouldn’t be bothered about all the extras (bottle opener, hex and so on), I’d just like a decent pocket/keyring pry bar.

    Any suggestions other than the CC Widgies, which I’ve already read a lot about? Cheers!

    @EMarkM: +1 for the DooHickey AND the CC Widgies... fyi, I have BOTH it and a small CC Widgie on my tool ring. Mostly for the bottle opener function ;)

    L'chaim!

    Arrrgh! Was on instagram just scrolling idly thru, when I saw the perfect prybar. Before I could get back to it it was gone... Cant find it anywhere. It had a clip had a distresed dlc like coating and a nailpuller slot in the front. Have scrolled up and down Insta, google and the ususal suspects (edcsupply, knifecenter, knifehq....). Its driving me nuts *sigh*

    Can't you check your browser's history for that day? Somewhere after Instagram and all of the searching. Good luck.

    It could have been a pry bar made by TealeDesigns. He makes several with pocket clips and advertises his pry bars on eBay.

    Not bad for $28, and Russian made rather then China!

    @ccwaters: other than adding some variety, what am I missing here? Why would a Russian made product be preferred over a Chinese made one? I don't get it.

    Russians typically do a better job at heat treating steel, and the big one for me they don't copy anything and everything without regard to patents and intellectual rights. I've never purchased a knife or tool made in Russia that was absolute garbage, Just the opposite every knife/tool I've bought made in Russia is exceptional quality. can't say the same for China.
