This is a handy man's tool. It's meant to be in the bottom of a pocket, laying in wait, until you need it. The integrated Philips is the most handy and useful tool tip, there are so many things with a Philips head screw holding you back from accessing a panel or changing your child's batteries. So it's a must! The internal storage is designed to fit either an extended 2"(50mm) hex bit or 2 pcs of 1"(25mm) bits, this is handy for those bits that are unique to your needs. The 6 o-rings are carefully placed to capture the buts, while also offering bit retention. The o-rings also give the handle a round driver like feel to aid in classic Phillips screwdriver rotations, the pronged pry stud extensions offer additional leverage to torque screws tight or loose.
Something so many miss about the common pry tool is that to actually handle real pry tasks, you need tool steal. Without a hardened alloy, an actual pry task like separating a paint can from its lid, or working a nail from a hard wood is going to cause irreversible damage to the tool. This is why the T1 is made in 154CM blade steel, this hardened Stainless will out last its user with little to no maintenance.
The PRY parts, the end of the UPK-T1 comes to am 8mm x 1mm flat end for torqing screws with the addition of a slit tip to aid in prying nails or binding an awkward angled pry job. The crowbar prongs offer additional leverage for anything from bottle basis to paint cans. This tool was made to pry.

Limited Availability; What is Carbatina? (carborized + patina)
During the first batch of T1 Rocket Tools some pieces came out of the heat treatment processes with unique etchings caused by oxygen getting under the protective coating I used during the bake to 2000 degrees F. I cannot promise to produce more this way so they are limited in quantity. These will be a great fit for those that like to have unique character on their tools. The depressions are not going to affect the tools function, because the metal is already hardened in this state. Each piece is unique.
