Who has keychains tools like those from Atwood etc.?
I have an Atwood Prybaby that is stamped with the Strider name, from Strider knives. Fabricated with a spanner to use in takedown of the Strider folder knives.

Neat little tool I’ve had for many years.

I’d like to start getting more of these items, not specifically Atwoods though I like his stuff. Artistry in Titanium is another that I’ve gotten stuff from.

Atwood’s are hard to snag but I’m looking for small key chain size pry tools useful. It’s nice to have something to pry a soda tab up, open a bottle or tweak something and not be tempted to use a knife.

Materials are not super important but I lean toward Titanium or Damascus and only Made in USA and prefer small makers. Makers like Atwood or Lynch Northwest.

It's not quite as fancy as either of those, but Gerber offers something similar called the Shard.

My only Atwood, an early whistle.








Not a tool, but a cash can from a member here at SIGforum. Watch courtesy of David, in a Karma several years ago!

A cheaper alternative to have around that's still made in USA.

Countycomm has a lot of handy pocket/keychain gadgets.

I have had one for a while, it’s opened quite a few brews, and the half assed phillips driver is handy.

I tried this one as I wanted a low profile glass breaker on me, but it didn’t work with my key ring well. I should really give it a second chance.

I keep a Nite-Ize "Doohickey" on my keychain. It's come in handy once or twice, but mostly, I forget it's there.


Not bad for $3.50.

Yup, they sure do. Even though I've quit smoking, I still love my peanut lighter!

Your avatar looks like a diver. Does that explain all the gadgets hanging on your keychain? Smile

I do dive, just not nearly as much as I'd like to. I'm a sucker for most anything titanium and have a do-it-yourself anodizing kit that I enjoy trying out on the gadgets. I'm a non-smoker but also think the peanut lighter is very handy and keep one in my hiking pack.

Though I don't dive, your avatar, and assortment of tools on your keychain kind of tipped me off. From reading, depending on the type of diving done, one may need anything from one tool to a bunch of them.

And you keep a bunch of tools on your chain!

countycomm.com is a great site,spent some money there.

the Griffin Pocket Tool was cool, but it sits in a box.

Griffin Pocket Tool, original Titanium is on my key ring along with a surefire titan.

Thankfully my car has push button start and they don't jingle in the ignition.

Sadly the griffin is made overseas.


I also own a Jared Price Toucan Review

It's too precious and rare to me to carry every day, so it's mostly a desktop widget/conversation piece.

I've had one on my keys about 20 years ago. Everyone who I've shown it to, always opened it up, causing the rest of the keys to be released onto the floor.
I ended up taking it off when a chunk of the phillips chipped off.

I like this one, have had one on my keychain going on 7 yrs.

The "bottle opener" can also be used to adjust a sticky gas regulator on an FAL
