Mine is a chrome vanadium that I picked up in a local hardware store many years ago,and I really like your idea Parnass with the o-ring or rubber grommet,I sometimes carry mine in my LM Wave nylon sheath,now I need to check if my bit extension will fit in the side also,with my black fisher space pen.
 :cheers:& :salute:

I've taken to carrying the PocketWrench II instead of the Gerber Artifact.   The PocketWrench II is a little easer to carry because it is flat.  

I put the wrench portion to work already while repairing a mailbox and used the beveled end (flat screwdriver) to tighten a screw holding a vanity handle.  

A 1/4 inch (inside diameter) rubber grommet or O-ring slipped over the hex shaft of a screwdriver bit extension prevents it from falling out of the PocketWrench II.






Neat trick - I like it !

Has anyone seen one of these at an actual store?

Lee Valley has them.

The Pocketwrench was invented by Don Burke, Founder of Burktek. I still prize the Pocketwrench II and recently stumbled upon another source for this handy tool, Burke's own web site: http://www.pocketwrenchtool.com

There is a video clip about the Pocketwrench here.

He will ship outside the USA.

Nice, if I were you I'd pick up a whole bunch, for trade if nothing else, CrV is way better than the current 420 stuff.

:2tu:  Thanks.   I just ordered my second PocketWrench II.   Bought the first one in January, the last time Lee Valley offered free shipping.

I modded my PocketWrenchII a year ago ... what do you think? One tool into two smaller ones. I call them the sKrench and CruciFix.
