I was asked to submit a small multi tool for evaluation and after looking at the web site, felt honored.
The small multi tool is actually an emergency seat belt cutter for the key ring.  I designed it about two years ago and have been making a few adjustments to it and trying to tweak its performance.  I call it a Raker Ring Tool and even made a short you tube video.  For those that may be interested, I believe this is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNCMePoxV04
I hope to learn a lot from this web site and  welcome to suggestions.

Welcome Ray!

The tools in the video are exactly the sort of thing that people around here like, so I'm sure you'll get some good feedback.

I thought they look great - but wondered about how safe the cutting section of the tool might be if attached to a key-ring in your pocket for example. As it's hard to judge something like that just from the video - how safe would you say they were?

Raker, I like the notion of having the key ring as being integral to your rescue tool.  :salute:

Reminds me of the Benchmade rescue hooks, maybe a little more substantial.  Like Dave I kinda worry about something that sharp not having some sort of cover on it, like a small piece of kydex or the like.  But I do like them and if priced right I would buy one.

Actually you cannot cut yourself with them, he made absolutely sure of that. He tested and refined the tool to make sure little kids especially could not cut themselves on the Ring Tool. Near the opening where the lip is, that is not rounded and kind of a sharp edge but only because it's not rounded off. It actually helps grip a bottle cap quite well and even though it looks odd it opens bottles quite nicely. Here is a pic of the tool, nice group shot. (will be in the review)

Well, folks, I am back on the forums.  I did have some items that needed taken care of and am now a full time member of this web site. 
David has been most gracious and has helped me along with getting things in order.  I will also be posting the Ring Tool and a few other items on their other web site, EDCSource.com.  Grant and David have both helped with suggestions and have shown great customer support.  I hope that our association lasts a very long time.  I have been made to feel very welcome by a lot of the members and have several good suggestions from a few of them.  I hope to incorporate some of them in some limited runs in the future.
I just wanted every one to know I do appreciate all the help you have given.

Good to have you here Ray!  I think you'll find that everyone here is willing to help with just about anything you may want.

And, for everyone else, as soon as we get Ray set up with a store on EDCSource, we have been talking about the possibility of a group buy, but as nothing has been decided on yet, I don't have any details to give.  We'll keep everyone informed!  :D

I thought I've seen your stuff somewhere before and I finally remembered where, the damascus key fobs!

Yes,
I started making the damascus key ring fobs about 11 years ago.  They have been a steady item and I try to make a batch every once in a while.  I used to use the odd pieces of damascus that was left over when making knives but it got to the point where it was more economical to just make the damascus for the fobs.  At least all the ones in the batch turned out about the same. :)
Thanks for remembering.

I received an email this morning that the "MT.O" stamp is being shipped.  It should get here by Monday and I will start on the Ring Tools for this web site members or visitors.  This is the only site that you will be able to know that they are available. 
I will offer both ATS-34 and Damascus Ring tools in three different models.  Two in the ATS-34 and one in the damascus.  They will be of the dual hex or O2/hex style.  The damascus model is pictured.
I had thought of going with a notch to hold an O ring similar to Atwood.  When it was generally accepted that this particular style is "Atwood", I decided not to.  If the customer wants to customize his Ring Tool to accept the O ring, I would say "Go for it".  I have been customizing my tools and knives since I was a child.  Every one is different and has different needs.  It is impossible to accomodate every one.  I feel that a simple tool will be most effictive for its designed use. 
For those that wish to order the :MT.O" stamped Ring Tool, please email me your order.  The ATS-34-DH and ATS-34-O2 will be $20.00 and the damascus will be $30.00.  All shipping is free.  Please do not pay until items are ready to ship.  I like keeping things current and up to date.  You will be sent a paypal request button when ready and for those that prefer to send a check, I will send you an email that it is time.
Thanks to all of you for your support and look forward to hearing from you.  For those that would like to send several of these to their family members and friends, I will discount another 15% from orders of 5 or more.
Thanks again.
