    I carry a gerber artifact in my right pocket and used it earlier to adjust the clips on my crossbreed supertuck.

    I was worried that it would accidentally open on me in my pocket and did not need an xacto blade. I carry 2 other knives (one in pocket and one on belt) so it was also overkill. I also like it wrapped in paracord, it gives my hands a little more grip.

    I started carrying a pocket widgy prybar on my keychain ever since I broke my Leatherman's large flat-head screw driver, while using THAT as a small-job prying device. :brickwall: :rolleyes: :shrug: Yeah, stupid thing to do. Luckily Leatherman was great about taking it and fixing it... and also reconditioning the knife (sharpened, cleaned, tweaked etc.). So, I bought the prybar from countycomm so I would never be put in a situation where I would use the wrong tool for the wrong job.

    I have a small one like the County Comm's (I purchased from a vendor that will actually ship to Canada). I've used it a couple of times and it truly beats destroying a blade tip. I've taken to covering the pry tip with a little piece of Gaffer's tape to keep it from chewing holes in my pants pockets. It works great.

    Gerber Artifact in the rear pocket of a Nite-Ize phone case. I've used a McGizmo clip to attach in to a LeathermanSquirt. Hardly know its there.

    No pocket prybars for me.

    Aside from going places that blades can't go, I'd rather carry a multitool or SAK for a little less available pocket space, but 10x the utility.

    Well, since my last post in this thread, I've added a EOD breacher bar to my BOB waistbelt, & a Swisstool (which has a built in chisel/prybar) to my edc rotation.

    I've started carrying a pocket widgy in my pack. I've been asked more than once to open a jammed file drawer at work...of course, I have yet to be asked since I started carrying a pry bar :rolleyes:

    Right. I will get right on that. That would save my fingernails, wouldn't it? I actually didn't realize they had sooooo many apps, and now of course, I am on the hunt. Learn something new everyday.
