P10 Prybabies

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the long silent stretch but I've been very busy catching up on spring yard chores, painting the house trim, staining the deck, fixing roof leaks, doing taxes, cleaning the shop, fixing my tumbler and other machines and trying to work on tools in between. This winter was so brutal that a ton of maintenance stuff got put off and I've been paying a heavy price this month. Plus I had to take a few days off on the warmer days just to relax for a change.

Anyway, I just got the new P10 Prybabies back from heat treat. This is an updated Prybaby design with a few small changes. The P10 is made of CPM 154 in the usual 5/32" thickness, overall length is slightly longer thank previous Prybabies at 3.5", wrench sizes are Imperial 1/4-9/16... I added a dedicated lanyard hole so that a lanyard will no longer interfere with the wrench openings and can also be used as a keyring attachment point. And there is an additional dedicated 1/4" hex opening. This results in a slightly larger tool but it has great ergonomics.

Another way that the tool could be carried would be on bead chain or cord by threading the chain through the lanyard and hex openings so that it could be hung on the neck. So there are lots of possibilities there for you to personalize the P10 to your favorite EDC requirements.

For the P Series I've decided to beef up the V notch area. I eliminated the traditional angle cut which tends to get chewed up if folks actually use the tool hard and is nearly impossible to fix once the steel is hardened. The old style V looks cool but is less practical in some ways. I think this simpler configuration will prove to be stronger in the long run although traditionalists will no doubt give me grief over it. I will have another version coming later this spring (the titanium G6) with the old style V notch as well so no worries.

Also on the way in a month or two will be a metric version of the P10 and those will be in CPM 3v steel. And there is a batch underway already of the P13 which is also CPM 3v steel. The P13 is identical to this design but it has my Sine Wave style grip that you have seen for the past year or two on many tools rather than the Hexi style edges.

The P10 Prybabies will run $70 plus shipping and the link is below. It's a small batch so limit of one per customer please on them. Thanks for stopping by and hope your week is warm and pleasant!

P10 Prybabies are sold out, thank you so much!
