P12 Mini Prybabies

Howdy Folks,

Slightly steamy and humid week here in New England. The light is starting to change a little bit though and it's getting dark earlier. It's just amazing that summer is almost at an end. Soon we'll have cool nights and the leaves will be changing, although due to the ongoing drought stress we already have some maples showing color.

The projects are piling up again. Lots of steel is sitting here waiting to be ground so that's what I'll be doing next week, trying to get another batch of tools off to heat treat. After that I might take a week off since I have barely taken any vacation days this year.

Today I have some of the P12 Prybabies done! These are cute little guys, made of CPM 3v steel. The basic footprint is the same as the P15 Mini Prybabies, but I changed the rear end and gave them an offset pry tip/screwdriver. So they end up being a sort of hybrid of the Mini P15 and the P13/P10 body shape. Very handy small tool and a perfect EDC size. The wrench set is SAE 1/4-1/2.

This sheet of 3v steel had a deep brushed finish on it from the mill. I elected to keep it rather than surface grind it away, thus preserving the maximum thickness of the tool and also creating a really cool contrasting texture on the final finish.

This first wave of P12s will run $70 plus shipping. The second wave is coming in a few days and those will have stamps. These are one per customer as usual. Thanks for coming by today and have a great weekend everyone!

Plain P12s are gone, thanks again everyone! :)

Very cool, but I'm passing on this. "You're welcome" to the person who gets the one I could have purchased. :-)

These look so cool. For some reason the brushed finish and the off set driver make this a really cool version to me. Always nice when the fast guys let one go... I'm back on a long streak of not seeing a sale link at all, but that is just how it works on this particular planet - and if you don't understand that you are definitely new here. Keep up the great work Peter... And take a vacation, you've earned it!!

I got one of these. It is my first Atwood Tool and the quality & craftsmanship is better than I imagined. Love it!
