G3 Prybabies

Hi Folks,

I just got a batch of steel G3 Prybabies back from heat treat yesterday. These have the nice semi shiny Stone Aged™ finish on them for a cool instant antique look. The finish feels buttery smooth in the hand and resists scratching very well. Also, this batch is slightly thicker than the previous ones so the pieces are extra beefy. Improvements to this batch include larger teeth for better grip. Wrench sizes include 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2 and 9/16. There are no lefties in this run, sorry.

Sold Out, thanks!

Just when you thought you had you were covered in the g3 department you had to go and make them thicker.

Hah! This is the first time Ive actually been looking at your site and an announcement came up! Too bad I already have my G3 Prybaby on my keyring! Truth be known, I was fearing it would be something too cool to pass up since Ive surpassed my monthly Atwood allowance! Everyone else - Enjoy!

Kevin said...

Didn't get picked in yesterday's lottery, but I finally got my first Atwood tool, thanks Peter!

Nathan said...

Yeah, when he said thicker, I couldn't pass. I like beefy tools. I decided to get 2!

Matthew said...

Got 2!

Billy said...

Yeeeahhhh! Thanks Peter!

Easy Wind said...

Same here, could not pass on a Thick G3.

Peter,
The last run of G3's were REAL shiny. You say they are more mellow, How thick compared to last run? As thick as the S30v Funnybone?
That is the older pic, right?

Maaaaaaaan! I'm tempted to get one cause they're thicker, but I'm happy with my G3 that has SEVEN wrench sizes!

Slim said...

I've been waiting to get one of these for a friend's birthday present. I'm sure he'll be very happy! Thanks!!!

Peter Atwood said...

Yes, this is the older pic. These are average around .162 whereas the earlier versions were .150 or so. So these are a true 5/32 and yes, same as the last FunnyBones.

Awww, I always miss the boat.

Leviatan said...

Late for me too:-(
Do you ever make wrench tools in metric sizes? That will be much more useful for me at this side of the Atlantic...

Peter Atwood said...

Yes, in about 2-3 weeks I will have two products with metric wrench sizes. One is the Metric Atwrench or MetWrench for short. The other will be the ABC.... :D

MTAR15 said...

I can't for the life of me figure out how to order. PLEASE HELP!
Thanks

Peter Atwood said...

The link to order the G3 Prybabies was removed and the sale has been stopped for the day. I am processing orders from today and continuing to finish up pieces from the batch.

Just email me or wait until the next release, I will have a few more done by tomorrow or Monday.

x man said...

Wow! My second Atwood successful purchase! Had to control myself to keep from getting a second one as a gift for someone.

Heath said...

The ABC: an Already Been Chewed Atwood?

I must be getting tired...

Rick said...

Wow, raining Atwoods lately! G3 is a great design. Bring on the ABC! ;D

Cesar said...

Nice. Missed it but I'm looking forward to the metric offerings.

spitfire8898 said...

How about Atwood Business Card? :D

ophelan said...

Tmad, Lmad, and Dmad said...

Peter Atwood said...

Guys,

Atwood Business Card or ABC. Exactly the same size as a business card, made of 420 stainless (cannot get thin S30v), 21 wrench functions total, all the metric sizes from 5-16mm, 6 SAE sizes plus a few others and a bottle opener. Ruler across the top on both sides, American and metric. They are tumbling right now and I'm going to try to get them done in around 3 weeks or so.

Cesar said...

That ABC sounds COOL.

Lynette & Albert said...

Any chance we'll see a DLC version? Or DLC anything? =)

Mark said...

Does the ABC have a cutting edge?

Cuso said...

Lurking for that second batch of G3's...

Peter Atwood said...

No DLC ones and they do not have a cutting edge, they are simply tool cards. Thickness is .075 so they are thin enough for a comfortable fit in a wallet but still fairly substantial.

Cuso said...

I told you I was lurking...Did i score or was that a hiccup? :-)

jsmitty1967 said...

I will trade you one of my business cards for one of yours. :)

Kevin said...

Good call on skipping the cutting edge on the ABC. I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I think one of the best things about your tools is the lack of a cutting edge. I carry a knife everyday for that purpose, and I have my Atwoods for everything a knife cannot do. It makes the tool much safer to use (especially the wrenches) without an edge, and you can take it places that you cannot take a knife (airport). I would, however, still love to own one of your blades someday.

spitfire8898 said...

ooooooohhhh I NEED an ABC!!! Looking forward to seeing them- Peter, anyway you can give us a hint on the sale time?

Peter Atwood said...

Probably 3 weeks at least. There are several steps invovlced to amke them and I;m nto sure yet..

spitfire8898 said...

YOU DA MAN! I know we're all chomping at the bit, but take your time! Maybe you could post some process pics to tide us over! Come on..you know you wanna!

vegassprky said...

Peter, any hints on an approimate price on the ABC. It sounds really useful!!! :>) Gary

iwolf81 said...

Did the second batch of G3 come out yet? I've been hovering here for the last few days and haven't seen the announcement.

Peter Atwood said...

Yes they did. I have a few left if you want to email me though.

Adrock1978 said...

Is there some way to set email notifications? I keep missing the offerings and a G3 would have been perfect!

iwolf81 said...

Yea!! I've got my first Atwood tool! This G3 Prybaby is awesome. Now to figure out if I attach it my my Surefire E1L or Swiss Army Explorer :-)

BTW Using Yahoo to monitor the RSS feed and send email notifications of changes doesn't work. My notification arrived 3 days late. Fortunately, Peter still had one or two left when I posted my earlier comment.

Regards,
Ira

Bobby Massa said...

Great tool! Just wondering Peter, what knot did you tie the paracord on my pb before it shipped??

Peter Atwood said...

Go to my main website and look under the FAQ for full instructions on tying the Matthew Walker two strand knot.

Scott said...

Got my prybaby! Now there's not a loose screw in the house (except one). any chance of a run of crawdaddys or keytons in the future. I think the keyton would be a cool pendent! And I agree- that is a pretty unique knot!

Billy said...

These G3's are so cool, I talked my dad into getting one!

iwolf81 said...

Tonight I found the para-cord that *used* to attached to my new G3 Prybaby in the laundry. Hmmm, what happened to the Prybaby I wondered. Fortunately, it was still in the trap in the HE washing machine... The tool and machine are undamaged :-)
