Nice things folks are saying:

New Atlas - (formerly Gizmag) - "...a new solution for handy folks after some versatility when tending to everyday tasks..."
The Coolector - "Fantastically functional and robust enough for everyday use, you’ll be amazed with just how regularly you find yourself reaching for this exemplary tool on a day to day basis."
We're glad to be back with our 28th project, let's jump right into some titanium goodness!
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.
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.
Bringing all of these details below together is what make it special.
- Solid Grade 5 Titanium
- Secure Frame-Lock Mechanism
- Built-In 40mm Actuating Extension Arm
- Pocket Clip/Lanyard/Keyring Friendly
- Rare-Earth Magnets (to keep everything tidy)
- Extra 2 Bit Storage Tray (w/spring loaded ball bearing)
- 100% Metal Construction (no plastic parts)
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.
Quick one-handed operation is key and the Ti EDS screwdriver intuitively opens and closes like a pocket knife.

- 3 Hex Bits (S2 steel, standard 1/4"bits)

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.

Our company (Big Idea Design LLC) started back in 2011 after our very first Kickstarter project. So, to us it simply 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.
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.
