    Justsomeguy - after you hit Lowes, make sure to stop by the chicken shed and find a corncob to wipe with instead of that fancy artistic stuff the city slickers call "toilet paper". Cause, like you say, its all the same.

    I should sorta apologize for that. It was 2 a.m. and I had just returned from the hospital (mother in law) and was delirious. Hope it is taken in the manner I intended.

    I have just started collecting Atwood stuff. I think his stuff is great. For the people who think it is overpriced I say this, if it saves an expensive knife blade or a key(with microchip in it) from breaking, then it is well worth the money. And yes I have used both to pry and no I have not broken either, luckily. But I have bent a key before, non microchip.

    My meager collection:

    There isn't a single day that goes by that I don't use my Prybaby! Buy one for yourself and if you don't like it you can always sell it for full price as there is always a buyer for one. The best edc tool that I use besides a knife...

    Yo, every time we have a company function I'm suddenly everyone's best friend because I always have a bottle opener on me (XL Prybay). Peter's stuff does rock, particularly the Prybaby and the whistles. I just wish I had more reasons/excuses to use my Atwood gear. My full size Bug Out Bar in particular cries out to be used but the opportunities are not that frequent (I'm thinking of getting into cat burglary).

    For those who think that Peter's tools are overpriced and totally unnecessary, I say good.......you're right. Please don't buy any.

    If you send Peter enough money, eventually he will crack and throw in a little freebie.

    Another thread that's going to cost me money......... He really makes some beautiful kit.

    I'd like a prybaby or a Tibaby for EDC on my keychain. How does the colour/pattern on the Tibaby hold up when in daily contact with keys? I'd hate to ruin the finish. Or should I just get a bead blast prybaby? Or maybe a Prybaby keychain edition. Or all of 'em??

    Decisions, decisions :-)

    The color/pattern will wear, but there is nothing you can do about that. Brother Atwood told me that Windex would bring it back to life just a little, but that would just clean it up a little and obviously not actually restore anything.

    I agree. When I asked Peter about this, he said it's the old grind up/grind down debate- which he's very familiar with.

    But he did make me these :



    The one on the left is a "Bug Out Blade" Thick 3V Steel. On the right is a "Son Of PryThing" in S30V w/ stripes. Both "Grind Up" versions.

    I also have (and very highly recommend) one of his whistles on my key chain.

    I do wish he'd integrate a can opener into a few of his designs. That would be very useful. (hint, hint )

    I don't have any, but hopefully soon I will.

    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.

    I have seen this Atwood stuff on and off for awhile now and am going to grab something soon. How are you guys carrying the stuff with a sharp edge on it? Is any of it small enough to toss on my keys with the sheath and not be too bulky? It would be nice to have a little blade but I will end up with a prything or prybaby on my keys soon.

    Also, is it impossible to find this stuff in stock or what?

    I only open cans with a hand opener when camping. (My electric can opener at home is great). When I'm trying to open some or a bunch of cans, I resent having to use anything other than a crank opener. I'm already trying to prepare a meal, wasting time jacking up some cans is not desireable. I can't say I'd look for a fancy can opener.

    A flashy bottle opener, on the other hand, is a cool gadget, even though you can open a bottle with practically anything.

    Atwood stuff is many things...

    1. Clean
    2. Simple
    3. TOUGH
    4. VERY useful
    5. Innovative
    6. Workhorses

    Peter is a good guy to boot.

    Bottom line is if you don't want to buy it the DON'T and you won't see the quality and what everyone is saying in this thread.
