This is a handy man's tool, a pocket Phillips screw driver with bonus functions. This tool, with it's tumble smoothed edges, is meant to wait be in the bottom of a pocket, always there when 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 kid's toy batteries. It's a serious time saver when on-hand! 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 bits, while also offering bit retention when mounted. The o-rings also give the handle a round driver handle like feel to aid in classic Phillips screwdriver rotations, the pronged pry stud extensions offer additional leverage to torque screws tight or loose.
Something many miss about many pry tools is that to actually handle real pry tasks, you need hard 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, Ti is a classic example of a cool material used the wrong way in a pry tool. This is why the T1 is made in 154CM blade steel and hardened to HRC 60, this hardened Stainless will out last its user with practically no maintenance, you might need to wipe off softer materials from its surface from time to time.
The PRY parts, the end of the UPK-T1 comes to an 8mm x 1mm flat end for torqueing 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 caps to paint can lids. This tool was made to pry.

What is Carbtina? (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 heat treatment to 2000+ degrees F. These were made as a special batch and technique(very difficult) so they are limited in quantity. These are a great fit for those that like to have unique character in their tools. The depressions permanent and not going to affect the tools function, because the metal is already fully hardened. Each piece is unique.
