I couldn’t tell you why, but CNC-milled titanium seems to invoke the same testosterone pumping response as watching a bear fight an eagle. So whatever the reason is, I get the same feeling from the Prybar and Barbar titanium keychain-tools from Anso Knives.
At first glance I’m not quite sure what to make of these supposed “multi-tools”. Despite having edges designed for prying and a non-adjustable wrench on the Barbar, neither of them have any dedicated screwdrivers, pliers or even a blade. So they don’t appear to be particularly useful as actual tools.
But at the same time, they’re friggin’ beautiful! It’s as if someone gave Picasso a CNC machine, a chunk of titanium and told him to make a keychain. Plus, there’s a bottle opener, and let’s be honest, that’s the only tool you really need. Come to think of it, I know exactly what to make of them… I want them both and I want them now! $US75 each.
