                   GRIM WORKSHOP

Grim Workshop's high-quality artisan made, everyday carry tool systems are designed and produced in the U.S.A. out of premium surgical grade stainless steel. Our tools are produced with the utmost attention and care to their functions and use. Grim Workshop creates some of the world's smallest multi-function everyday carry tools for people from all walks of life. From the ordinary to the extraordinary, Grim has a tool for it. From camping, first aid, survival items, emergency tools, and everyday tool kits, tools for anything and everything life has to throw at you: Grim Everyday Carry Tool Systems. Though they may be small, they are mighty.

 Grim EDC Zipper Tools

Grim Workshop's Everyday Carry Zipper Tool System was designed to turn any bag, backpack, or any other item they can be attatched to into a wearable, mobile tool kit for almost any situation. At under 1mm thick these tools are ultra-lite but still strong, and made from high grade surgical stainless steel by Artisan craftsmen and women, and are 100% designed and produced right here in the U.S.A.  

all 12 of Grim's Zipper tools are made of surgical grade stainless steel, designed and produced here in the U.S.A with the utmost care and attention provided to their development.

From combs, to wrenches, lockpicks, fishing kits and more we wanted to give you the items for any situation without ever having to dig or search through pockets, with the tools readily available you never have to look long to find what you need.

Materials  

All of Grim Workshop's metal tools are made from surgical grade stainless steel, and are under 1mm thick.

Reusable 

Grims EDC tools that have removable parts like our lockpick, fishing hooks, etc. All have a special tool retention system applied to the back of them. This allows you to take a piece of a tool use it, and return it to its original position to be used again at another date.

Grim EDC Tools placed onto a bag. Multiple tools can be stored onto one zipper slot.

Go anywhere  

At under 1mm thick all 12 tools can be stacked into an area smaller than one AA battery. This allows you to take them and store them just about anywhere you can imagine, making them the ultimate travel companion. Imagine having a toolbox in your pocket or on your keychain without ever having to dig into a pouch or search for an item.

Grim's EDC zipper tools are not just for bags and backpacks though, they can also be worn as an EDC keychain, necklace, inside a small tin or pouch, stored on a bracelet, or even extra small spaces like inside the rim of a hat.

 Grim's wallet tool holder allows you to store up to 6 tools at a time on a credit card sized tool holder. One side has our custom tool retention system that holds your tools, and the other has a special reusable glow light. 30 minutes of sun or bright light allows for 8-10 hours of glow time. 

 

                    Coming Up  

      With over a dozen tools having already had their final prototypes created approved and production ready, we have no less than 9 more tools currently being prototype and will hopefully become available after our campaign has begun. We hope you will become a part of seeing these tools become a reality.

Risks and challenges

We have a well established relationship with our manufacturers as they are all here in the U.S.A, and have created past items with them. We are fully confident in their ability to handle a high influx of orders in a short period of time. We are production ready and have an agreement with our manufacturers to begin production as soon as our goal has been met on orders that have been placed prior to meeting our goal to ensure the day the campaign ends, we can start shipping out orders without delay to our first backers and have all of our orders shipped and in transit well before Christmas. All were waiting on is your contributions to begin!
we hope you'll be a part of seeing these tools become a reality
