My new tool!

Post by olaf_yahoo » Mon Oct 06, 2014 2:39 pm

I wanted to share my latest creation with all of you, this is the new and improved ATS which includes a pry tip with a nail puller and screwdriver, bottle opener for your favorite beverage, 1/4" hex wrench for standard screwdrivers, an oxygen valve shutoff wrench, a water key as well as standard and metric socket wrenches from 1/4" to 9/16" and a lanyard hole big enough to comfortably accommodate paracord or your keychain. The tool is 5" long and 3/16" thick of 440C treated to HRc56. The tool also makes an effective impact weapon either in normal or reverse grip. I designed this to be a well rounded, pocket companion that would be useful to just about everyone. Please feel free to post any of your questions. Yes, these are available for purchase but I'm not selling them here. If interested then just send me a PM. Thanks and I hope you enjoy them!

You can open a bottle with the side of that thing. Now a can opener would be a different story.

I would have to agree. You would also have the advantage of being one of the few pocket tools that actually offers a can opener, which is much more useful in my opinion. I can always find some sneaky way to get into a brew, but getting a can open is another story.

Ooooh :oh:
This is the best flat multi tool I've seen

Are these for sale :crazy: ?

I do think a can opener would be better than a bottle

Can't you open a bottle with a can opener anyways?

I like my knives. I have always been sensitive about opening cans with them.

I would probably work also, if you slid the existing bottle opener all the way up the side to the scraper edge

Yeah, wouldn't want to use a very nice or expensive knife for it. I prefer the P-38 for opening cans.

Another vote for a can opener. I can't count how many times I've had to use my Leatherman, SAK or P38/51 to open cans when not in my own kitchen. Nothing more frustrating than a crappy can opener that refuses to puncture the seal of a can, and only perforates it. That's why I only use Swing Away openers in my kitchen... But I got some cheap friends and family that buy bargain bin stuff.

I'll see what I can do on a future tool but these are as is. What do you think of the overall look of this one? I'm considering getting precision ground steel next time and having them laser cut so I can do some in more of a mirror polish.

Ditto on the can opener. Would also like to see the jimping sized to work as wire strippers for a couple different gauges. Aside from that, it looks awesome, and I think I like the tumbled finish on this more than I'd like a mirrored one. I'd think its slightly grippier like this as well.

Very nice. Please define "water key"? Does it do what a 4 way Silcock key does? Can it be used to break car door glass? I'm with the can opener crew, as well. I can't wait for a Ti version.

I'm sorry I've not posted recently. Yes, it is a 1/4" silcock key and yes, the corners of the pry tool work fine for glass breaking. Please wear gloves if you decide to test this. I've also recently, reduced the price by nearly half. Pm if you'd like details!

Yep, the gas shut off is for EMT, fire rescue etc. I also recently learned that glass blowers use them and I have three satisfied customers who do so for a living.
