GRIP-S Survival Tool

Post by beast1210 » Mon May 27, 2013 11:41 pm

In the end they are just fancy handles, but with a few changes I think they could be a great addition to any bug out bag or urban survival kit.

I bought them here:

Thanks for posting your find and it is an interesting concept. I think I just found a new project to mess with. :lol:

Is the end hex broached for the 1/4" hex drive bits or is it just a 9/32 or 5/16" diameter through hole?

Are they really charging $40 per set? Does it come with some sort of carrying case?

I say baaaaaaaaaaaaaah, they are really useful, pack real small and harder to F up than you might think and there is always duct tape. High on my things I like list.

The concept is cool. I like being able to use a variety of blades that are cheap. I think drilling might be hard to use do to the small handle. A "T" shape would really help with drilling.


The price is a killer for me. I might have to try build something similar.

it is a round hole but stops just short of half way through where the wire saw hole is. no carrying case.

Thanks for posting the video. Not sure I could justify another saw thingy given what is already packed but to each their own.

Thanks Beast. Interesting that they do not have a hole all the way through. Now it has me thinking of making a version of this little guy for myself because it would be a nice little item to have in an urban or GHB kit or hell even in my tool kit. :lol: Of course being able to switch from metal cutting to wood cutting blades is a nice option to have also. I am thinking of making it fit my pocket chain saw rather than the wire saw and also mess with the grip design on it to improve the ergonomics and leverage when sawing. More to come on this little guy for sure. :clap:
