Hi Kickstarters,

Welcome to our new project, let's jump right in!

Screwdrivers that utilize interchangeable hex bits are incredibly useful but let's be real, actually carrying a screwdriver with a full-length grip in our pockets as an EDC (everyday carry) item is a big deal breaker.

So over the past 10 months, we completely redesigned one that would comfortably fit in our pocket and go virtually unnoticed until it's needed. Allowing us to do more and carry less.

 The Ultimate EDC Pocket Screwdriver

Full Grip Design

The Bit Bar™ features a full-sized handle and the ability to conveniently store, access, and customize the bits to meet virtually any situation. The titanium versions are CNC milled from a solid block of aerospace grade 5 titanium. It's a very time-consuming and expensive process but we wanted to make something exceptional that could be passed down for many generations to come.

Make it your own, standard bits welcome.

No odd, half-sized, or proprietary bits here. We understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to daily tasks. So, being able to store and use 8 standard 1/4" hex bits that you already own allows you to quickly customize the bit bar to your needs.

Sophisticated functionality disguised in a minimal design.

Perfect Size For EDC

To us, the most useful tool is always the one that you have with you. That's why the Bit Bars profile matches that of a EDC pocket knife. It's both comfortable to carry and easy to access without getting in the way.

Materials / Colors

GRADE 5 TITANIUM ALLOY
The titanium versions come in 2 color options.
1. Ceramic media tumbled raw
This is the natural, un-coated titanium finish that is tumbled with ceramic media to give it a "stonewashed" look and matte finish feel.

2. Battle-worn DLC black

The durable DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) black coating is first applied then tumbled with ceramic media to give them the character, random scuffs, worn edges, and small surface scratches to match the look of a time-tested and active tool.

2 Titanium Options & 1 Fiberglass Reinforced Option
2 Titanium Options & 1 Fiberglass Reinforced Option

FIBERGLASS REINFORCED NYLON
This industrial strength material (PA66-GF50) is commonly used to house power tools due to it's great balance of being strong and lightweight.
The fiberglass reinforced nylon version is injection molded and comes in a stealthy matte black.

Free World Wide Shipping / Optional Paid Express Shipping

All rewards will ship out at the same time and everything comes with worldwide free shipping. This method utilizes the local postal systems around the world and usually take around 10-20 days to be delivered depending on how efficiently the various postal systems are running.

If you want to get your reward faster through an express company (usually within 5 days after we ship out the rewards) you can simply add $25 to your total pledge and we can get it to you ASAP once they are ready to ship out. More info can be found in the FAQ section.

Production Timeline

•Feb - April (funding period on Kickstarter)
•Mid April - June (production)
•July - August (quality control, assembly, fulfillment & shipping*)

*As always, if we finish early the rewards will ship out sooner.

Why Kickstarter?

Our company (Big Idea Design LLC) started back in 2011 after our very first kickstarter project. So, to us it feels like home. We don't have (or want) any investors so we bring our new products to the kickstarter community. We simply love being an active part of this community and making unique products with our backers that are built to last.

 

 All brands, logos, and trademarks displayed on this project are used for demonstration purposes only and are sole property of each respected company and owner. No endorsement or ownership implied.

Risks and challenges

This is our 20th kickstarter project so we are very comfortable knowing what it will take to bring this project to a successful completion. The only risk we foresee would be shipping a little bit later than the estimated dates show if the project is extremely over-funded. We have planned in extra time but if a production or shipping delay happens, we will let update everyone know about it ASAP through a project update. The Bit Bars shown are also functional prototypes and the design elements or dimensions may need to be slightly adjusted during mass production to ensure we produce the best products we can for everyone.
