    This Atwood stuff is nearly as adictive as flashlights.

    Looking forward to your pics Titan.

    Cy -

    I think I like the small prying tools the best (keyton, prybaby, mini-prybaby or whatever its called, wedgie) over the cutting tools, but they are all good. Probably best for me is the keyton as it is small enough not to be noticeable on a key ring, but gives you something to pry with instead of using your small sebenza, Strider or whatever. The 3" wedgie is good too as it is very robust. Its also slightly sharp on the pointy end which I guess could damage your pocket over time, but I havent had a problem.

    I don't find the bottle opener on the prybaby useful, as I rarely open bottles. What might be nice is a prybaby with the bottle opener removed, which would sorta be like a v-notch keyton.

    Thing is, you can always unload one of these Atwoods if they don't float your boat. People gobble them up at edcforums.

    cheers

    Just got my 5 inch Bugout Bar today - this thing is MASSIVE! It's much bigger and heavier than it looks in the pictures on the web site. Excellent quality, as expected. Very nice!

    Well i got the last tanto goblin that peter had. It had an imperfection in the finish so i got a deal. He has regular goblins at $95.

    I have got away with the import duty a lot lately, im expecting to get shafted by them this time. As if i dont pay enough tax already.

    Shrug Re: The Official Atwood collectors thread.

    I just came across this thread. I was blissfully ignorant of Atwood tools.

    Now it looks like I'm going to have to buy one...just one...no really, just one.

    Well, probably not.

    Spendy little buggers, that's for sure.

    Are they available anywhere at discounted prices?

    A quick Google search turned up mostly posts from CPF, Bladeforums, and the like.

    TIA

    Thanks for the nice comments! Would have joined in long ago but just now saw this thread.

    I appreciated what one person said earlier:

    "I asked the machinist at work how time consuming stuff like that would be to make. He said in aluminium, no worries; but in steel, he says the price is reasonable.

    There is a lot of work involved in making one of those tools. More than is obvious at first."

    Boy, isn't that the truth! People are so used to buying cheap stuff from China and other countries that they just don't get how much time and energy goes into even the simplest little things.

    I can certaintly tell you from first hand knowledge that anything with Atwood on it is made from the best materials available for that object and the workmanship is second to none!! My last order with Peter was for two tac straps to carry lights, small knives, etc; in and you just wouldn't believe the quality that is put into these handy pockets with a swivel.....
