T-Wrex!

Hi Folks,

Perfect summer days right now here in the Northeast. I have been working my brains out, but not as much on tools as I would like...we just had some home renovations done this past week and so I have been prepping like mad for them. Practically the entire house was painted, furniture moved, etc. I'm exhausted now but at least the house is clean and has brand new carpet throughout. And I'm finally going to get some new home office furniture this coming Friday which will be great. 

Yup, the long awaited T-Wrex has finally arrived! These little beasties are tiny yet absolutely massive. The thickness is well over 1/4" and the steel is CPM 3V with a slightly lower Rockwell hardness and tempering optimized for toughness. 

The features include a large pry tip with nail notch, a 90 degree smaller secondary pry/screwdriver and a mini hammer or striking surface. A 1/4" hex/lanyard opening is also included as well as an alternate lanyard opening if you wanted to hang this tool on your over sized key ring or gear bag to form a T handle.

I have given this T-Wrex batch a really cool dark vintage finish and each one of them is hand rubbed and oiled. 3V is a tool steel so if you want to avoid surface rust keep them oiled or, be like me: abuse this tool relentlessly and embrace the patina. :)


I wish this batch was much larger but perhaps I will make another run at some point. At any rate, these will be one per customer and they will run $85 plus shipping. The link to order is right below, if sold out then the link will be gone.

Thanks for stopping by everyone and hope your Labor Day Weekend has been a great one!


T-Wrex is sold out, thank you so much everyone!

Great tool. Amazing work, Peter!

I have never been able to buy any of Peter's tools on this blog, rather frustrating. All the buyers have clever alert programs like EBay snipers. Still, one day I may be lucky :-)

This is a winner and must have been cool since they weren't all listed for resale within hours of the sale

looks like a min hors hammer should make more as a pendent

First one just hit eBay; only has a picture of his Paypal receipt, but I guess it is hard to have an actual picture when you don't yet have the item being sold...

I received mine several hours ago and can't put this down or let it out of my site...The size, the weight, the look, the feel....PERFECT! Thank you Peter!

Beautiful tool! Love the thickness! I can only imagine how it looks in person.

Hopefully you will start a new project soon that I can try to catch :)

Thanks Peter! It took some time to let the piece travel counterclockwise, got mine yesterday.
The T-Wrex is one of the best I have seen before, awesome.
However, a metric tool is what I am missing to complete my EDC key ring ;-)
Thanks again.
