Considering there are quite a few beer and 1911 lovers on here...

I've been working on a line of pocket tools for the past few months. Primarily I make bicycle components and some firearm parts, but I want to branch out into the tools side of things for both.

First up is a prototype titanium keychain/pocket tool.

Bottle Opener
1911 Bushing Wrench
1/4" Broach
Standard Tip Screw Driver/Pry
Domestic 6Al/4V Titanium
5/32" Thick
2-1/4" x 1-7/16"
100% Made In The USA (Old Towne Orange, California)

I am making these myself at my home workshop. All milling is done manually, unless interest grows I may throw them in the CNC. Mainly showing this to see what you guys think and if anyone is interested. I haven't found a nice bottle opener/bushing wrench that I can keep on me, which is why I started making these.

I may throw some laser etch on for measuring on the side and "Drink Responsibly - Shoot Responsibly" unless someone has already done that on something similar.

I think it looks great, depending on the price, you may have a hit here!
I am partial to your scratch built 1911's too!

Thank you!

I'm shooting to run a batch of 50 of these in time for Christmas. Looking to have them go for $40-50 including shipping.

Forgot to mention, the pry fits into grip screws, so it can also be used to remove those as well.
