    Has anyone used/owned/handled one of these "escape rings"? They are titanium rings that house a small saw/lock-pick (though I don't see how the latter would work from the pics I've seen) on the inside. They look super cool (just google "escape ring" and you'll find them) and even though I would probably never use it it's to damned Bond-ish to just ignore. So if you have one, speak up. At 80$ or so I may just buy one without anybodies input, but if you got the "in" then please "put" it out there for the forum. Thanks.

    Interesting concept buuuuut wouldn't the saw teeth scrap against your finger when putting on/taking off the ring?

    I have no clue. That's why I asked if anyone had any hands on experience with them.

    Sadly, I already wear all the rings I'm comfortable wearing. Both my wedding ring and the one other have substantial sentimental value, and if I added more I would start to look less professional than I want to. Too bad, because the concept is highly cool!

    Man. It would take a long time to bust out of the big house with one of those.

    Yeah, I love the idea of the ring, it's cool. But seriously, who knows how to pick a lock? Great conversation piece. I guess you could win some bar bets, "Bet I can get out if you tie my wrists" type of deal, using the saw blade.

    You know I've been wondering about this ring for a while now.

    I missed the lock pick part but am guessing that you can use it as a rake and will still need a tension wrench.

    I plan to get one this year as I am planning an international trip later. :D I already had it bookmarked:D

    That's not the ring I started the thread about, it's just another cool ring. The Tit Escape Ring looks like a normal band ring and has a saw/lock-pick underneath it.

    not exactly lockpick, it's a shim that you can use to open handcuffs. you don't really pick the lock.

    I'm not interested in the other one, but I would really like one of these just for the fun factor (meaning I don't think it would be useful).

    Just not for that price though :)

    This is the one I thought you were talking about.

    Can you give me a link for the one you meant? I'd sure like to know if I need it or not.
    Though, in reality, I'd rather buy anything from elsewhere than UniqueTitanium because of the way they've treated Jon and disrespected the Forum in the past.

    No, that's the one. I thought you were talking about the SAK-style ring posted above. I've seen the ring on several sites if you want it but don't want to support douche-y peoples.
