Titanium Ring Tools

Last winter I offered some titanium Ring Tools. I have a few more Ring Tools available right now, anodized green. These are made of 3/16" thick titanium and the opening is equal to a standard size 12 ring so will fit onto small to medium sized fingers. There is a 1/4" hex opening on the tool and an O ring and screwdriver bit are included. These run $35 each plus shipping. I do have a few that are blue and some rose gold anodized as well.

Green ones are gone. Thanks!

Stonewashed Original Minis

Happy Wednesday!

I have just two dozen of these Original Mini Prybabies available in stonewashed finish. There are a few more coming but they will be bead blasted. Anyway, because there are only a handful I'm limiting it to one per customer please. They are $45 plus shipping.

Sold Out! Thank you folks.

Got the Atwood Itch?

Well, maybe the Atwood Chigger™ will help you scratch it. :D

The simple design of this cute little tool pays homage to the classic key ring screwdriver/pry tools of the past but adds a bottle opener and 5/16" wrench. The large 3/4" hex opening makes it easy to slip onto a keyring and helps provide grip. The Chigger™ is made of 5/32" thick CPM S30v steel, is 2.25" long and features a stone washed finish. These are $45 plus shipping.

Thanks folks, these are gone for now! I very much appreciate it.

Blasted Mini XLs

Hi Folks,

After a couple of days of laying around and sleeping I seem to be feeling a little better. So it's time for a sale.

I have the remaining Mini+ Prybaby XLs ready to go. These are bead blasted. I don't have a whole lot of them so I'm going to keep it to one per person so that some of the folks who missed the stonewashed release get a chance at them.

Sold out, thank you once again folks!

Just Getting Back

Had a family event to attend in VT this weekend. I'm still recovering this morning but will try to get the FunnyBones up this afternoon.

No Sale Today

Hi folks.

Paypal is doing something weird and for some reason I'm not able to view any transactions from today in my transactions list. So I will not be able to do a sale today until they get it straightened out. I'm able to accept payments and the balance is correct but no listing comes up with my transactions. Very odd. They have been doing some maintenance recently and obviously something is messed up.

I am going to try to get to some bead blasting today. Hopefully will get to the rest of the minis and also some FunnyBones in the next day or so. Thanks for your patience!

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!

Mini Prybabies®

OK, I have some Minis ready to go finally. This is the first wave only. I have several wave's worth of these coming over the next few days with several different flavors. This group is the largest and I'm calling it the Mini Plus Prybaby® to distinguish it from the Original Mini Prybaby®. The only difference between the two designs is the 1/4" hex in the body and also the Mini Plus is slightly lighter stock at 1/8" thick. These are all S30v steel.

A word on the tumbling. These have a nice satin stonewashed finish but are not quite as shiny as my recent batches of tools. Also, everything that came back from this tumble has some remnants of bronze heat coloring on the edges and inside surfaces and in the name stamps. This is the result of the tempering oven cycles and usually I don't see this. Not quite sure what they did differently but I want to make it plain up front so that folks don't email me thinking there is rust on any of these pieces. It's NOT rust, just heat coloring.

I will also be doing a portion of these with a bead blasted finish just like the original Minis. So more of them will be coming as I get them done. The straight Mini Plus group with stonewashed finish is what I have done right now so they are up first. XLs will be coming probably tomorrow afternoon. I did not get to any lefties yet. Thanks for checking in folks! :)

Mini Plus Prybabies® are $45 each plus shipping. Link is here:

Sold Out for now, more tomorrow. Thank you!

Update on Minis

So, I just spoke to my heat treat guy. They are all done and have been tumbled with the shiny Stone Aged finish. He is shipping the first batch of Mini Prybabies out to me today so I should have them on Monday's UPS. That means Tuesday will be the first wave of sales. I expect to be able to offer these in several waves over several days as I get them sorted, cleaned up and packaged up. Thanks for your patience folks!

Howdy Folks! Hope your weekend has been a relaxing one. I've been working for some of it and kicking back for the rest of the time.

I have a few titanium G3 Prybabies available. I marked these with one of my 19th century antique die maker's stamps in the shape of a sword hilt with D guard. I only made two dozen and they are all anodized green. They are $75 each plus shipping and I'm keeping it at one per customer because of the limited stock. Purchase link is here:

Sold Out, thank you!
