Have you ever been in need of a pocket-sized mini prybar? How about a tiny waterproof lighter?

If you’re the type of guy who likes to be prepared for just about anything, then you’ll want to take a look at this offering of pocket tool goodness: the EDC (Everyday Carry) Kit.

Chances are, if you’re one of those handy guys whose pockets are a virtual tool kit, you’ll be putting the EDC kit on your wish list, because who knows when you’ll next be called upon to hotwire a car, dismantle a booby trap, light an emergency flare, or maybe just do a little adjusting of the office thermostat. The EDC kit, from Kaufmann Mercantile, is a pocket-sized tool made from high-quality materials, featuring precision engineering and thoughtful design.

First up is the mini prybar, which is made from hardened industrial-grade tool steel (D-9) steel, and is a half-sized version of a tool commissioned for the US Military, fully capable of pulling nails, prying open windows, and or perhaps just opening boxes from Amazon (but like a boss!).

The second piece is a set of screwdriver keys (flat-head and Phillips) made from hardened steel, which will make quick work of loosening the screws on your colleague’s desk chair on April Fool’s Day.

The third piece is a set of precision tweezers, fully capable of extracting the most stubborn splinter, as well as taking care of that stray hair sprouting out of your ear before you head off on a hot date.

The last piece in the EDC kit is a 1-inch long “capsule lighter” which is waterproof and airtight, and is able to stand up on its end, saving you the hassle of asking “Hey, can you hold this lighter for me while I use it to solder together my latest invention?”.

Available from Kaufmann Mercantile as a set, for about $44, or as individual components.
