Limit 5 Per Customer
Our Smallest Model Ever!
Members of the military Explosive Ordinance Disposal teams wanted a small, light, non-magnetic wrench for working on magnetically sensitive devices, and this is what we provide them:
Weighs: 15.3 grams. About 1/2 Ounce
Grade 4 Titanium
Jaw Opening: .5” ( Same Jaw Opening As 4" Model )
4 Tether Holes
Marked "Titanium - CAGE: 5VKB6"
This is a project we have been working on for two years. Most wrenches are forged from tool steel, but It was determined that this wrench must be Titanium. Why Titanium? It’s extremely corrosion resistant. Featuring No/Low magnetic signature. Extraordinarily strong, titanium possesses a greater strength-to-weight ratio than stainless, steel or aluminum. Titanium weighs about 60% less than steel in density, producing tools at nearly half the weight of steel.
This means that the wrench needed to be machined out of a solid billet of Titanium. Making a adjustable wrench in the machine shop i s a lot more complicated than it sounds.

The Ti Wrench is fully heat treatable and scroll down to see one Tony Fabrioli made for himself. The possibilities are endless...
These titanium beauties not only make great conversion pieces but they are completely functional.
Feels like a toy but is sturdy and very well made. It perhaps a bit too small for many tasks, however. Where it does fit, the wrench is terrific.
Does not match
I love the fact that it is made out of Titanium, however, the premium construction material, and price, are contrasted by a loose and sloppy adjustment mechanism. Work that requires a small wrench often needs a finely tuned tool.
Amazing cave and canyon tool
Have you ever wished that quick link would just open with killing your fingers? Well this is the tool for you. I have one for each harness!
The thumb screw and jaw do not fit well and the jaw slides back and forth as much as an eighth of an inch. This is literally the first piece of disappointing equipment I've ever bought from CCC.
