When Uncle Sam requested a small pocket pry bar for technicians to open ordinance crates in the field, we offered these as the solution. The Widgy Pry Bar is made to fill the high demand for a customizable widgy bar which you can sharpen into your own EDC tool. These compact bars are heat treated D-9 steel and provide a common sense solution to broken knife blades and bent screw driver shafts. These are first run extras from our government order.
Like a lot of us, I'll Buy One, just to ~Check It Out~ Then, if I like them, I will decided how many more ! ! ! So, I think I have Two More to Go, that, will be A SixPack ! ! !
EDC. Tool Bags, One. Two & Three . . . Key Chain, Back up Vehicle, (4WD, Isuzu). Yeah, Six will do...
In my Person are the Titanium ones.
Tool Bags, 1,2,3: yeah, Long LONG ago, it was Five gallon Buckets, I worked a 101 Unit Apartment Complex, I segregated my tools to Sheet Rock, Painting & Plumbing, but always, each bucket had "Extra Spares". And I have used that Same System for the last 35 years. My Pry Bar Selection/Collection is twenty Five Pounds Alone, now that I am retired, I have gone to, And Use SMALLER tools: Tool Bag one Also has a (Reworked) Hyde 7" "Wonder Bar" with one end almost Super sharp, the other Gently CURVED so it will not Damage Sheetrock or soft woods, But Then, I also carry a generation One EOD breacher bar from here . . . So Why not also carry a widgy bar ???
That's my thinking, and it's kept me at the Top of rough Competition in the Trades . . .
I bought several of these to keep on my key ring, range tool kit, PSK, mess kit, etc. Like the catalog description says, beats abusing and bending or breaking knife blades. I had local saw shop we use grind several with one side to flat, 90-degree edge to use as a ferro rod scraper and the other side cut with 24 TPI fine saw teeth which will do soft wood for snare triggers, Plexiglas or sheet metal. Paracord lanyard through hole long enough to pass thumb though and around back of hand nightstick style, supporting tool with thumb and forefinger gives a controlled grip, but easy release if required. Only improvement I would see would be an EMT version with die-cut O2 wrench approximately centered.
My mentor Harry Archer back in MACV days would have approved of these.
