    Just bought one of those myself as well as the full sized one. Couldn't decide on which was better for me, so of course at $5 each, easy decision to buy both.

    Nice! I love the look of used steel. Looks like there are so many stories behind it. Is that commercial or did you make it?

    Atwood:

    Prybaby XL

    My justification is I am damaged a number of knives from grade school on up until a couple of years ago when I got my first proper pry tool. It seemed like before from time to time that I needed to pry something and the only thing available was the knife. No more damaged knives for me.

    For pocket sized pry tools Atwood is the only place I want to go.

    Salt, Me? If so, I got it off ebay from Fort Ancient Knife Works (Brandon Miller - 513.304.4049). He makes nice little keychain knife picks. With a little work on the grinder (First time on the Grinder - bare with me) I turned them into nice screw/prys. Here are the others ...

    I've carried my Atwrench since I got it 15 days ago...haven't used the pry feature, but when I need it I'll be glad I have it. One of the main reasons why I like Peter's creations its that they are multi-function pocketable tools. I used the wrench today to take apart the support arms on an industrial push broom and install a new handle. Used the v-notch to cut some wax cord to stitch a cone in one of my storage nets. Later on I'll use it to pop some caps on some refreshing beverages:-X its all good. Handy, usefull, multi-purpose and most inportantly keeps me from snapping a blade on my knife.

    Prybaby on keychain.

    I love my knives and take the time to keep a good edge and it lubed up. So I dont wanna have that all be for nothing because I used a knife for something it wasnt intended to do.


    Hard to break or mess up a prybaby.

    The gerber artifact is a great pry tool, plus it functions as a blade and screwdriver. I use it at work where a knife would be out of place.

    I recently purchased an Artifact and have used it several times. It's a good tool at a fair price.

    I think that's just some heat shrink tubing shrunk down in the middle of the Prybaby.

    I carry a 36" wreckin' bar behind the back seat in my Jeep $12 @ Ace. Seems to handle all my prybar needs pretty good. I'd love a nice Atwood, I'm just poor.

    Gerber Artifact for me. atwoods are nice, but i can't bring myself to spend that kind of money on a pry tool, especially given my penchant for losing anything that's not attached to me. plus the ability to remove the blade makes it great for nude beaches(read courthouses, airplanes, grade-schools, etc/).
