Hi Kickstarters,

We're glad to be back with our 28th project, let's jump right into some titanium goodness!

Introducing a new kind of pocket screwdriver

The Ti EDS : Not Your Average Screwdriver

This is a fully custom, CNC milled solid titanium screwdriver + 3 hex bits + 40mm articulated extension arm that features a time tested frame-lock mechanism + lifetime warranty. The tighter you grip it, the more secure it the mechanism gets. It's built from the ground up and is backed for life. If a high-end titanium knife and a compact screwdriver had a kid, this would be it.

The Backstory

In 2017, we created the Bit Bar to provide a way for people to comfortably EDC (everyday carry) a screwdriver and extra bits. Today, we are excited to show you our newest addition to the series that we call the Ti EDS. It's a more streamlined version of the original that has a few new tricks up it's sleeves.

Why Carry A Screwdriver? 

It's amazing how many times a day we need a screwdriver and various bits (i.e. door hinges, hose clamp, kid toys, camera gear, honey-can-you-fix-that, etc.) but don't want to run back to our tool box for these trivial/small tasks. Somedays we like to keep a low-pocket profile so the original Bit Bar tends to stay in a drawer those days.  So, designing a more streamlined version with a built-in extension arm is what we wanted to tackle next. It's been the perfect size to get things done and yet not take over our pockets.

Every single millimeter, chamfered edge, and tiny detail has been designed, re-designed and refined until we were happy with how it felt and functioned.

No Proprietary Bits, Use The Bits You Already Own

We know you already own a bazillion standard 1/4" hex bits and that your perfect 3 bits to EDC are different from ours. So feel free to swap them out/customize the 3 hex bits with the ones you own and build your ultimate pocket screwdriver.

Easy Open/Close

Quick one-handed operation is key and the Ti EDS screwdriver intuitively opens and closes like a pocket knife. 

It quickly opens & closes, just like a frame-lock style knife.

Lifetime Service Warranty

Simply said, if it breaks we'll repair it for you.

If you've been burned other companies in the past, let us assure you that's not gonna happen here. No red-tape, no corporate run-arounds, just good ol' fashion service.

So, does that mean you can smash it with a hammer/abuse it and get a new one for free?

Nope, but it does mean that if you have an issue under a normal-use situation that you think needs to be fixed/repaired you can simply shoot us an email, mail it back to us, and we'll help fix your screwdriver ASAP.

Risks and challenges

This is our 28th 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 pocket tools shown are also functional prototypes and the minor design elements or dimensions may need to be slightly adjusted during mass production to ensure we produce the best pocket tools that we can for everyone.

Safety/Liability Disclaimer: This is a tool and not a toy, so it should never be in the reach or possession of any children or minors. Tools have the potential to be very dangerous and we do not accept any responsibility whatsoever for any harm, damage, illegal activity, injury, etc. while using this tool. Simply said, please be safe folks.
