    Really? I could see them having the items made and branded as give aways for a trade show... but somehow would never have thought of AWT as an actual manufacturer of items like this as a product line.

    L'chaim!

    With the exception of that Amsler pen length bar, most of these are too small to really get any real leverage. Opening a can of paint with many of these pictured is not what I call a fun job and would end with a sore thumb. I carry either a SAK or a plier based multi tool and they usually take care of my driver/prying needs. Some people swear by them, but most I've talked to never really use them. I've had a couple Nite Ize branded ones and a Boker Vox, but beyond some light scoring I still found my SAK to be way more useful for the intended task. To each their own.

    Sometimes they are pretty handy

    I once lifted a 24x24 manhole cover, though that took two prybars -a maserin croc and a boker VAT- working bike tire lever-style

    In my opinion, key chain pry bars, are not really pry bars. Do not get me wrong, I have a few myself, but as far as prying anything bigger than a very small nail, pin, or staple, this is a lost cause. Take it like this, if you could use a knife instead, well you know what I mean.
    I use mine more often to open a box or scrape something. I do not have any specific stats, but to be a real pry bar you are looking around 6"-8" to start with. In my car I have two "real" pry bar which are about 14" each. And yes, one has open a car door following an accident. I doubt my keychain one would have helped...:rofl::rofl::rofl:
