The Griffin Pocket Tool, a stylish and practical stainless steel prybar, is designed for everyday use. This tool packs a variety of functions and tools into one compact, lightweight tool. These tools include a pocket clip and a screwdriver. Although the pry bar and screwdriver are the same, the rest of the tools can be found throughout the GPT.

Actually, the pocket clip is more like a pocket channel. The pocket clip is designed to slide on the edge of your wallet and hold it in place. The hex wrenches can double as keychain holes, so you have a place to clip your keys.

There are many options to choose from depending on your personal taste. The Griffin Pocket Tool is a well-designed, strong tool that does the job when it matters.

Gerber Shard Keychain Pry bar

The Gerber Shard was one of the first EDC pry bars tools. This tool has been in existence for more than a decade. It offers many useful features in a small and sturdy frame. You will find 7 functions/tools included that can be used to handle many of the little emergencies in life. You will find a pry bar, wire stripper, small and large flatheads, a bottle opener and lanyard hole as well as a cross driver.

You can tighten flat and phillips head screws, as well as crack open cold ones. Although the cross driver won’t be able to free stuck screws, it can open remotes and battery compartments as well as other basic screws.

Split ends make it possible to use the pry bar as a nail puller or wire stripper. It’s not as useful for removing framing nails, but it can be used to pop picture nails from drywall and other small tasks.

The best thing about the shard is the price. It has been consistently below $10 since its introduction. Although it is TSA-compliant, we recommend that you take this with a grain.

The Gerber Shard is an excellent choice if you are looking for a quality pocket pry bar made by a respected manufacturer.

SOG MacV Pry Bar Tools

The SOG MacV pry bar tool is tactically targeted and features a design based upon the skull symbol of the MACV SOG. It is made of 3Cr13 stainless and measures 2.5 inches in length. The black coating protects against corrosion.

You get 12 tools with the MacV, including some that you won’t find on pry bar tools. There are a small and large flathead drivers, a small Phillips driver and a carbide blade sharpener. A pry bar is also included.

A lanyard hole is also considered a tool by some people, something we find a bit iffy. Although it’s useful, is it a tool? I don’t know anything about it.

The bottle opener and the actual pry bar are both great features on the MacV. It is a bit bigger than other pocket pry bars, and provides a better grip. This allows you to pop tops or open small boxes more easily.

The SOG MacV could be your best choice if you are looking for an EDC pry bar that is a statement piece.

Leatherman Brewzer EDC Pry Bar

The Leatherman Brewzer EDC prybar tool is a product of the legendary multi-tool manufacturer. It is made of stainless steel and measures 2.45 inches in length. Although it has a strange shape when you first look at it, we love the overall appearance of the Brewzer.

The Brewzer has only two functions. It is not like other pocket pry bars. The name is tongue-in-cheek and refers to opening ice-cold beers.

It excels in both of these functions. It features a beautifully shaped pry bar and tapered edges. This allows you to find the right fit under almost any item. It lifted up small boxes and paint can lids easily. It was narrow enough to open shipping boxes easily.

It is TSA-compliant and extremely affordable. It is the best EDC pry bar. It is not. It lacks the extra bells and whistles of similar-priced tools.

It can be a great addition to your EDC if you are a Leatherman lover.

Boker Minibar Blade

The Boker Minibar blade is one of the most striking EDC pry bars. It is made of 440C forged stainless in Solingen, a city known for its ‘City of Blades.

The Minibar, in keeping with its nameake city is sharper than most of its rivals. The Minibar actually comes with two tools, one that doubles up as a screwdriver on the bottom and one that is beak-shaped on the other. You have a lot more flexibility when it comes to where and how you use your Minibar.

You will also find a bottle opener/shackle opener, and a compatible screwdriver bit compatible wrench. It can be attached to your keychain, or slipped into your pocket. It’s less TSA-friendly than other pry bar tools. It is best to be cautious when you travel with it.

The Minibar has one drawback: the price. The Minibar is 10 times more expensive than other prybar tools on this list. It’s not the best value for money, but you get many tools for your money.

The Keyport MOCA keychain mini multi-tool has a built in pry bar. It is made of 420 stainless steel, and contains 10 tools in a 2.7-inch long body. These tools include a ruler, flathead screwdriver and ruler as well as a box opener, cord cutter, box opener and scoring tool. These tools are similar to most prybar tools, but they only serve a few functions.

The MOCA is not TSA-compliant. The cord cutter/box cutter is very sharp and can be used to open letters or cut packaging. If you don’t like enhanced pat downs, this cutter is not for you.

The MOCA has a lot of tools that are small and work well. The cord cutter was a great tool for cutting through different items. It was quick to cut through packing twine and zip ties.

The Keyport MOCA pry bar tool has a lot of potential. There are a few features that make it stand out from other comparable models.

Kershaw PT-2 multi-purpose pry bar tool is compact and packed with features. It is made of 8Cr13MoV Stainless Steel with a bead-blasted finish. It has a matte finish that protects it from scratches and dents.

Instead of being a single piece of metal, it has a glass-filled nylon grip in the center. This gives it a non-slip grip that makes it stand out from other keys.

Although the PT-2’s individual tools are small, they still work well. This is a great companion piece for your existing EDC.
