I found these looking around on the pewer the other day. What do you think? http://www.pocket-tool.com/Home.html

I think Alcohol, Tabacco and Firearms should be a convenience store, not a government agency.

Looks something along the lines of that Channellock that was posted. It looks good, but definitely not for an everyday user, and I wouldn't carry one with me for Search and Rescue work, that's for sure. Pretty good find though man :cheers:

Wow. That guy was making them at home and selling on eBay last I knew. The first ones looked kinda crude, with leftover weld spatter where he attached the hex wrench (or square drive) These look a bit more professional. Must be he's been able to sell some and fund improvements. :)

In order to be certain of having the right tool for every job.........one must first acquire a lot of tools

I'm kinda interested in one in an odd sorta way.  Has a couple of features that I would prefer over my Mole Grips that I currently carry.

I can't think of a single justification to own one, but they look like a nice hunk of steel  :tu:

I like firemen quite a lot - does that count? :D

I have a local city firefighter friend. I got him one for a gift. He loves it. They are made by a fire chief in the States specifically for fire fighters. It replaces a pocketful of tools that one would need to do their job. My friend loves his, and carries it. It replaced a lot of tools for him.

The tool is actually very well made. They do look crude, but very tough and has not failed under hard working conditions. Not sure it is something I would just buy for kicks...but if your into rescue tools, this is definitely a must get item.

*sigh*

Yes, I think knowing someone with a grandpa fireman probably counts, but now I find myself a little distracted from the tool.....
