Mini Plus XL

Hi Everyone,

OK, I have a portion of the Mini Plus XL batch completed. Exact same specs as the Mini Plus but they have a small bend for extra leverage. The bend does not significantly change the length of 2.5".

These will be $55 plus shipping. Link is here:

Sold out for now, thank you!

Woot an XL at last! :)

Alex said...

Hi Peter,
How many Mini Plus XL's were in this batch and will there be any more?

spiff d: said...

I'm on vacation up in Portland, OR getting some coffee...just in time

been waiting for a smaller prybaby for long long time, this will fight w/ the mini keyton51 for spot on keychain( but only when I don't have to travel in airports :)

never had any Ti tools, hope that is next....yr or 2 is fine :P

souptree said...

Nice, looks like a lot of new addicts, I mean, customers scored on these!!

Welcome to the obsession!! (You are doomed....)

Peter Atwood said...

Good grief, you guys trying to kill me? :D LOL, thank you!

Won't be able to get to any email for some hours probably as I am quite overwhelmed at the moment.

silver said...

Welcome to the obsession!! (You are doomed....)

but what a way to go ;)

yy said...

missed it..:(
Hi peter, when will be the next batch XL?
thanks.

Rick said...

Okay, everyone needs to quit telling their friends about Mr. Atwood's tools. It's becoming near impossible to get one and we don't want to kill off Peter! ;)

Mark said...

Peter,
Please give me the opportunity to buy a Keykutter or Pop & Chop and I promise to never bother you again!!!!!

tommonson said...

Wow, those are cool. I kind of wish I had waited

KH said...

How soon before more XL's are available?
Thank you.

Peter Atwood said...

Probably Friday. It's going to take some time to get through all these orders from today. Then I need to finish up more of the XLs and a bunch of them will be bead blasted so it's going to take another day.

and on the 7th day he rested . . .

Peter, I hope you take the weekend off. your customer service is wonderful, but don't want any long term problems for you (i.e. your carpel tunnel) by trying to make everyone happy.

I've missed the most recent sales, but have scored the fixer, the prybaby, the wingnut and the various shot iterations . . . so I don't mind seating on the sideline and admiring the photos of your workl.

indabayou said...

Another cool tool....Thanks Peter,You are THAT GUY :)

waykno said...

OK, I know I'll feel more stupid after someone answers this but--"lefty". I'm right handed and I don't see the lefty thing. Can't the tool just be flipped over and used that way? What am I missing? Thx, wk.

Kevin said...

Wow, found your site a couple weeks ago and was hoping to get one of your beautiful tools. Going to have to be faster next time, these went super quick!

Smack2000 said...

@waykno: Yeah, they both work in either hand. If you hold a lefty in your left hand when, for example, cracking open a beer, the stamped side of tool will face you -- same deal with a righty/right hand. Also, when using a prybaby as a pry tool, its more ergonomic when used in the correct hand because the bottle opener is not digging into your hand.

Essentially the grinds are on the other side of the tool.

Ben said...

Peter, you are the best!

spitfire8898 said...

Can we get an idea of when the lefties will be up for sale?

codec said...

Peter, I remember hearing that the older XLs were hard to make. Have you come up with a new solution? Or are these equally as hard to make?

Peter Atwood said...

They won't be going up as a regular sale. I only made a handful and they are for my left handed customers only. I have a couple remaining and if someone wants one they need to email me. A number of my lefty fans have already done so.

If there is a sufficient demand I will make a separate batch of lefthanded tools and will create a sign up thread so that I am sure I make enough. But I honestly did not think there would be that much demand so I didn't make a whole lot this time.

spitfire8898 said...

Thanks for the quick reply, Peter! Email sent!

KFE said...

Ohhh, these are really nice!
I've been holding off on buying Atwoods lately, so I wasn't checking the site as often as I should. I really hope I can score one in the next batch, a XL has been on my want list since before I got my first Atwood.

Aaron said...

These are fantastic peter. I am sure DB already has some trit installed in the hole.

Jason said...

peter I got the XL today super fast shipping. And the tool is great as always. This is the first one I got directly from you.

Christoph said...

My XL arrived today also, and I introduced it to its new life by prying coconut out of the shell. Something else for your list of uses, Peter? :-) Thanks again!

Christine said...

Got my XL yesterday - super fast shipping, thanks! It's wonderful, great feel. I'm looking forward to finding lots of uses for it, it will go on my work key chain.

Does anyone know if this is allowed as a carry on item by the TSA (and also in Europe)?

Peter Atwood said...

Absolutely safe for air travel anywhere. Courthouses might be different though as the guards are sometimes over the top.

Christine said...

Thanks! It may go to London/Venice with me in a couple of weeks.

codec said...

I didn't realize how small the Mini is! Really cool. Thanks!

DoogieJ said...

Peter, Hope you feel better. Thanks a million for the XL. Just got it and its REALLY neat.
