I designed and manufactured samples of the Metperial Little Bit More miniature screw drivers with a bottle opener that normally would need a split key ring to operate leverage, my new patent pending design "Little Bit More" allows a choice not to have a split key ring to operate leverage.

Little Bit More is manufactured by EDM wire cutter and CNC machined from Gr 5 titanium plate that has a length of 34mm open or shut with the main structure size at 6mm X  6mm square that allows unfolding with a pivoting motion that creates leverage when opening a bottle cap or leverage for the philips and flat screw drivers without the key ring, although a key ring can also be applied to assist opening a bottle cap or an alternative leverage for the screw drivers.

The miniature structure can be placed in a wallet, purse or a compact survival tool kit, grade 5 titanium is skin friendly and light that could be used for jewelry such as ear rings or cloths and luggage zipper attachments, a small knife, electrical cord and string guillotine, wire striper, nail clipper, lever, shackle pin wrench, scraper, bottle opener and Philips and flat screw drivers.

The $5000 stretch goal has been met = one free 24mm titanium split key ring with each Little Bit More pledged.

Pictured below compares the miniature Little Bit More with fingers.

  Both sides in open position of the knife blade.  

 Both sides half opened for leverage for screwdrivers or bottle opener.

There are several ways the Little Bit More can open a bottle with or without a key ring, pictured below is the thumb pushing upwards to remove the bottle cap.

Risks and challenges

This is a simple project to manufacture from GR 5 titanium as the parts are EDM wire cut and CNC machined to guarantee the precision needed.
I personally do the QC with hands on each and every manufacturing procedure, I treat my designs as part of my soul and most of all try my very best to give the Kick Starter backer the WOW affect at an affordable price.
The biggest challenge I face is the mailing of the rewards if to many backers, and if so I will hire assistance.
I am able to design, develop and manufacture my ideas because of the affordability of CAD, EDM and CNC machining cost and the technology China has to offer, especially the excellent service, trust and friendship.
