I’ll see your jumping cat and raise it one cat riding an invisible bike. Smile

Really like that Titaner pry bar but I must refrain.
I’ve been buying some Laix “Tactical” pens, really quite good.


They seem to take Parker refills but I’ve had some that were too tight to fit by 0.2mm. Drilled out to fit.
These two are my favourite. One with a cap and one propelling.
I bought the B1 as well but the top is a bit too sharp, luckily there was someone on Amazon U.K. selling just the tips from the B2 which is interchangeable with the B1 and is a lot less savage.


Spyderco could take a few lessons on slip joint manufacture from RoughRider, and pricing info as well.
Couldn’t resist this one-

I bought one and it is etched with the EDCGear name it’s anybody’s guess whether it is genuine.
It is reasonably well made and as long as you know it is not for climbing then it should serve you well, I’d like another to test the pulley’s multiplier strength but not so much as to spend another $9 to find out.
Fair to good value, great for hanging stuff up but $0.05 of 550 paracord would do that just as well.

I’ve got a couple of the one on the right, the vendor I bought from only sold them in pairs. I’ve got two County Comm pry bars, the widgy bars, the pocket and the micro. so 2 out of 4 ain’t bad.

Specially for Chloe for after washing up.
Cat tea towel holder.

My cat was very relieved when I bought this, she was starting to hate dish washing time. Shocked

They do one for dog lovers as well.

After seeing that picture and reading Dog lovers, my first thought was something else than a towel holder. :bigsmile:

An EDCGEAR bottle opener/pry tool exists (also see the pico bar underneath):

What’s the hole in the back good for?
Gear best list it as “screwdriver and rope hang place”. How can this be used as screwdriver.

I’ve been looking through the CRKT online catalogue, there’s a couple of nice slipjoints coming up, but what really caught my eye was this Hook and Loop (Velcro) Tool. Designed by Trip Felton
CRKT Hook and Loop Tool and rest of catalogue!

Damn good idea that, Velcro seems to store fallen hair and various other things, mud etc., after a while it becomes difficult for the Velcro to “stick” together. I’ve been using a small screwdriver to clean the hooks and loops but this tool is made for the job.
No idea of release date but I’ll be looking.
MRSP of $29.95 so less than that online probably.

I don’t know if it’s been posted anywhere else on the forum but it seems like it fits here.
FastTech are stocking the NITE IZE KLK-11-R3 Stainless Steel Keychain w/ 6 S-Biners $7.84, not a bad price for what is pretty much a complete keyring. Looks like the S-Biners lock closed as well, I’ve not taken much notice of Nite Ize products before but this looks good for the price.

I was gifted one of these a few weeks ago and replaced my regular not-for-climbing key carabiner with it, its allright, I’ll keep using it cause it was a gift but not cause it outperforms a regular one or anything

I have my key ring hooked threw the hex drive part cause it always got twisted around otherwise.

I saw these nail clippers at Banggood (2.21 USD). They remind me of some that DX used to sell.

They also had some cheap Gerber Shards (3.18 USD each, choice of black or silver).

Has anyone got a picture of a key on this? I was wondering if you could practically put more than one key on each clip.

Another one:

Price $3,27 on fasttech. I think yo should replace the golden key with a own key (if it fits).

Oumily pry bar/bottle opener tool, also available in black:

EDCGear pry bar. (Redesign, or a new “ice cream spatula” kind?)

HX Outdoors pivoting magnetic keyring light:

Munkees keyring light, also available in silver (4xLR41):

:bigsmile: I’m still trying to find “the one” (right now the shard seems most appealing).

I saw this Nextool Pegasus tool at Gearbest, reminds me of a Benchmade seatbelt cutter.

I thought so too. It is apparently called “Glacial Pegasus”. :ghost:

Oh, there is a set of NexTool pry (please excuse the rude one, pic from AliExpress). I can’t help wonder if they are stretching the concept a little:

Here’s an interesting addition:

It’s a clone of a high-end custom utility blade that I’ve seen floating round the past month or so. Of course I want one, and of course there’s no way I’m spending $150+ on a utility holder. It looks like our friends in China feel the same way.

$150+ for a utility blade holder? These people are insane.

But it’s a T.A.D. custom titanium blade holder!

Seriously, the Rexford R.U.T. is a really attractive piece of work and, honestly lightyears beyond the one I posted in terms of fit and finish, but that’s way too much money, even for braggin’ rights.

Sorry, have to disagree on the “braggin’ rights”. Its a utility blade holder, you stick a 50cent blade in it. That $150 thing won’t provide them braggin’ rights, it provides everyone else laughing rights! Big Smile

The “clone” is whats appropriate for utility blade holder imho. I’ll throw the real cash at something else.

But you’d have an excuse to buy Ceramic blades to up the bragging laughing rights even more.

I own the Chinese versions, even though I’ve nearly bought the real tad ones for around 120 or less. I have handled the Rexfords and they ARE phenomenal-as you’d expect from a high quality company. I think they’re prices are pretty over the top for an average joe like me…but for gear whores they might think I’m insane.

I think that around 100 or so bucks isn’t too unreasonable given the endless fiddle-factor of it and of course-necessary tactical bottle opener Wink (as people would easily spend double that on flathead screwdriver pocket tools that don’t even have a blade) …but I still couldn’t come around to making the jump.

However, for a laughable copy in comparison to the real thing, I’ve found the copies to be much different than clones and can be justified guilt free. They honestly aren’t stealing any revenue from TAD.

I quite like that. Though it wouldn’t be legal here.

I recently got one of these Tiremet prybars from BangGood. I bought it thinking was cheap titanium but it’s magnetic, so may still get one from pouncing cat after all.

I gave him some orange ‘clothing’, which doesn’t match my pink things, but maybe give you some idea anyway. Feels much nicer to hold with the paracord:

Do you really find those small bar-things useful? I can’t figure a way they could be interesting, and I’m an EDC type of guy very much.
Aside from (very light) prying, what is the focus of those portable tools? Not bashing, just trying to better understand the reasons behind the enthusiasm they seem to gather among EDC / prepper folks.

For example, this Powerfix brand thing I got the other day thing does more stuff and is much cheaper than most bar-stuff I’ve encountered so far.
