Alright, this is Geeky :D

I was playing around a couple of weeks ago just looking for something a little different. I do not currently plan to make any of these, just exploring the idea a little. It is possible I may do something for a wrist though at some point or maybe a belt buckle or a titanium slide tool for nylon webbing. This particular piece is 44mm in diameter and uses a 22mm Maratac one piece Zulu strap.

Wow, that looks great!

Cool. Why not on the belt instead of the wrist? :) (It's me. Can barely stand the watch!)

... and since I'm a metal-geek, I might be VERY interested in possibile future developments of this crazy line of items ;P

pure geek Peter ^_^

almost looks like a Panerai in original stock form...well without telling time hehe

Hans said...

Peter, you are one weird son of a gun, but man you know how to innovate!
Cherish that brain of yours :-)

How about a set of Area 51 tweezers incorporated in your setup?

Cuso said...

I like what IM seeing here, but it need a quick removal mechanism. I can c this attached to my Fatboy shoulder strap, but if you could make the tool S shaped, with the strap pass throughs ends opened so that you can twist/slide it in the strap...getting my picture?

Joe said...

That is cool! Peter, your creativity never ceases to amaze me. Great job.

Rick said...

I like the idea of a Ti slide tool for nylon webbing that would fit on a pack or maybe even something for Molle.

Very cool!

aki said...

Ooooh~ Area51 tweezers! brilliant hans! Peter~ ;D

JDR said...

LOL!! What Hans said....
Seriously, thank goodness you use that brain for creative endeavors instead of evil.
That's pretty neat:)

Joe said...

I looked at the full sized pic and found a secret. You broke the Atwood stamp into two lines. That's a nice touch to use your original stamp in a limited space. BTW, I would love to see a belt buckle tool or a tool that I can wear on the waist.

Peter, I'm currently on the other side of the earth visiting my family and friends. I brought a mini prybaby to a great friend of mine as a gift. This is the first Atwood tool that I've ever parted with. My friend LOVES it. I made him promise to use/abuse it to see the true soul of a Atwood tool.

Peter Atwood said...

Hehe, Joe, the double name stamp was an accident. The stamp moved when I went to whack it a second time while trying to touch up the first one. This was a proto just to see if I could get the concept to work so I didn't bother sanding it off and doing it over.

Steven said...

Looks like a great concept, I send for something that could slide onto webbing on a pack or something. Can't wait to see it evolve a little bit more.

OK, so is the Phillips the minute or the hour hand? :-)

Great work as always!

Bolster said...

Peter, this is extremely creative. If you're doing a little test marketing here, I'd say I would not purchase a wrist tool for wear (although I might for collection, depending on price, etc). However, a belt buckle multi-tool would be a very useful item to carry. So would a web-strap tool, such as might fit on a laptop strap, or on a backpack strap. I like the direction you're headed with this idea.

Ryan said...

Dude, that's amazing.
I agree on the belt idea. I'd totally whip my belt off all the time to fix stuff with it. "I'm batman, only no tights."

Alan said...

agreed...a little geeky but the concept is cool. You got the creative juices going.
Pretty awesome idea Hans! Area 51 tweezers sound pretty cool.

kd7txg said...

I'll take one please

Logan said...

I would love to see that on a belt buckle. This has some phenomenal possibilities.

Jedediah said...

The belt buckle is a good idea, and if you keep the right types of tools on board, you can market it to snowboarders, ala
this one

DB said...

That......is......awesome! Keep up the crazy!

ch said...

I like it! I have an Omega on my left wrist, so it would have to go on my right.

Christopher said...

Peter it would be amazing if you did a belt buckle. I have a sweet pewter Creature from the Black Lagoon one but yours would replace it immediately. A sliding webbing tool would be great also, who wouldn't want an Atwood on the strap of their edc bag? Those are some solid ideas.

Bushie said...

wear that as a pendant and you got some BLING

Franz said...

No matter how I'd love a wrist tool... I admit I would be even more interested in a belt buckle.
But I'm not going to complain if both are coming ;P

Hugh Walton said...

What do you call it?

Anonymous said...

As a wrist tool, I'm suddenly wondering if there's a way to attach a watch over the bits and the retention rings with velcro or something. You could flip the watch off and voila! You have bits, bottle opener, etc.

Is it geeky to take it this much further?

Oh, and as a belt buckle. That's just an incredibly awesome idea. That's up there with the 686 Enterprises tool belt.

HoopleHead said...

i would LOVE LOVE LOVE a belt buckle! something a bit more subtle than 2 bits in the middle, but still very atwood-y. great new direction for EDC tools!

Filip said...

Cool design.Make more of this .

Anonymous said...

Peter- I hope you will take this attempt at humor as well intentioned:

A one-off, double stamped, Atwood tool. Maybe you should put it on eBay? :)

My spouse, who often stares holes through me and who loves your tools and follows the Planet blog laughed so hard she cried when I said it to her. :)

Ben L. said...

Geeky maybe- But I'd wear it/use it!

George said...

Hey Peter,

love the Wristwrench. Keep up the good work, it may be Geeky as you called it but it could evolve into something great.

Thanks, George

Karen Brey said...

I really like this idea, and modding it for a belt buckle, i would put that on my filson double bridle belt :)
Just a thought/idea...how bout if you do develop this, an area small compartment that is magnitized? not sure if that would work, i've seen a wrist tool holder that is magnitized somewhere, and i think it would lend nicely to your idea here. I would also like to see you develop a dual sport motorcycle tool similar to the one you have for the bicycle tool.

Brian said...

Creativity at its finest Peter, you continue to amaze with your exploration, experimentation, creativity and ingenuity.

While some type of wrist, belt buckle, webbing sliding tool would be cool, I'd also like to see some sort of bit holding device to carry a couple of extra bits. A bit speed loader, bit bandolier, etc.... Something that could fit on a belt, webbing, or Maratac one-piece strap, or carried in your pocket on a lanyard.
