NexTool TaoBar pry bat and package opener
« on: March 17, 2018, 11:47:34 AM »
I've already posted some pics of my new keychain tool, the NexTool TaoBar, but I thought I'd post a few more here.  It slices through paper and packages, blade is Sandvik 12C27, Teflon coated, and it has a linear lock.









I like the curved lifter part --- been looking for this in a mini prybar for while, and almost got a Gerber shard on a few occasions (but heard the shard has exposed sharp edges that can damage pockets.)  Anyway, might still get a shard so I can do a proper comparison.  (Then an Atwood prybaby if I ever have the cash!  :drool: )

The TaoBar has now taken up residence in my EDC, along with my Squirt

Interesting one :) Certainly looks pocket sized.

I like how it looks, and that the blade locks. Is it sharpened under where it says Taobar, or just in the hook?

It is sharp on the curved part too.  It's pretty sharp out of the box, but I tried to make it sharper and probably dulled it somewhat with my first attempt --- but I seem to be improving on the sharpening now.  It now lives next to my PS4 Squirt --- they make a nice couple!  :drink:
