It may not be the “one ring to rule them all”, but the Ringtool can fix a lot


There are tons of pocket tools out on the market these days, in many shapes sizes and forms. I am always looking for unique, simple to use and easy to carry pocket tools to refine and simplify my EDC (Every Day Carry). The Ringtool by Reductivist may be the replacement I am looking for. The Ringtool is not so much a pocket tool as it is a key ring tool. As its name implies, it is round with nine tools built into it. The tools are:

  • a bottle opener
  • 3 mm Hex Head
  • 4 mm Hex Head
  • 5 mm Hex Head
  • 6 mm Hex Head
  • 8 mm Hex Head
  • Flathead Driver
  • Phillips Driver
  • Torx Head T25 Driver

Although built with cyclists in mind, the Ringtool would be a great addition to anyone’s key ring for those emergency situations, especially for an end of the day beer opening. The Ringtool is a Kickstarter project currently seeking funding until July 19, 2013. Funding for this project starts at $1 and runs to $40 with $25 getting you a second run version of the Ringtool. If successful the first run tools are scheduled for delivery in October 2013.

    I’m getting one of these once they are in the Sub $10 range. To keep attached to my antenna for Ham Radio, Hate having to search for tool to make adjustments. Seams perfect fit.

    Looks to be uncomfortable in the pocket.

    I don’t have any hex keys in my personal ‘on person’ EDC. I might consider one of these.
