Just one question, how does everyone carry their Atwood? And do you have it secured so you won't lose it or is it just loose on your person somewhere?

On a lanyard around my neck, on those rare occasions that I carry one.   Atwoods are jewelry.

People actually do carry these things around? You mean, outside of protective sleeves and sheaths and wallets? Madness! :ahhh

I just throw mine in my pocket and go. Never lost one, and never really use it.

Little Ti thing on my keychain, and a Prybaby loose in my pocket because it sees so much use and I need it not to be "shackled" to anything.

I carry a Flat GasBaby on my keys, and a FunnyBone with a short length of paracord tied to it and carried in my pocket.  Works well for me.
I'm back!!

Ownership of a small pry bar should be mandatory for anyone who own's a folder worth more than $50.00 ! I wish Peter would liscence the more mundane ones to someone else , he could still do well on the custom/ltd. edition stuff !

Alright, I know this is probably the last thread I should post this kind of comment in... but isn't $370 just too much for a darn necker? I just bumped on a sale on another forum for one of Peter's SUMO knives that started at that price. Sheesh... ??? I don't question the quality and finish of Atwoods, mind you; they are well known -- even legendary -- for those qualities. But why oh why would anyone spend that amount for such a thing, even if only as a collector? I just don't freaking get it... ???

I have a few Atwood tools, from back when they were more affordable and easier to come by. I still use the original Prybaby Mini. The Spanner baby gets carried when I carry the Strider SNG. I have no idea why I purchased the Bugout Bar. It's too heavy to realistically carry around.
