After the successful completion of our first Kickstarter campaign, The Fly Pry, we received many requests for a slightly larger version with more features, while still being small enough to be used as a zipper pull or key chain.
The Fat Fly is a titanium multi-tool, bottle opener, pry bar, can opener, and much more, packed into something small enough that it can be worn on your zipper or used as a key chain. Each one is hand ground and crafted one at a time in my shop just North of Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
We're launching two different models (The Big & Tall) and each will be offered in either Metric or Imperial Standard. So whether you're in the USA or the Australian bush, The Fat Fly will have you covered! Let's look at the two models being offered:
Horizontal Multi-Hex Wrench with separate 1/4" hex bit holder in main body. Over 15 Features!
Vertical Multi-Hex Wrench with 1/4" Hex Bit Holder incorporated into the bottle opener. 15+ Features!
Each Standard Fat Fly will be available in the following:
Finish: Stonewashed Satin - Tumbled in a vibratory media tumbler with ceramic stones and then finished on a Scotchbrite belt. Results are a durable attractive satin finish.
Colors: Natural Silver or Anodized: Blue, Gold, Purple, or Bronze - The titanium is electro-anodized and depending on the amount of voltage put through it, yields each of these beautiful colors.
Green Glow Locator: Never lose your Fat Fly with our locator option! We're using the brightest glow powder available on the market, Strontium Aluminate (55-85m). Similar to what is used in illuminated watch dials, but much, much brighter. The Strontium Aluminate we use is visible to the naked eye for up to 24 hours after its initial charge (exposure to a light source required). Add $9 to your pledge if you would like it added to your Fat Fly.
Standard Version: The standard Fat Fly comes in military Grade 5 titanium (6AL-4V). We chose titanium for its anti-corrosive properties as it will not rust or corrode, which makes it perfect to be worn year round on your zipper or key chain. Lighter than steel, but twice as strong!
Limited Edition: The Limited Edition Fat Fly will be made from a titanium Damascus called Moku-Ti, which is made exclusively by master metal smith & forger Chad Nichols. This material is made through a patented process of corrosion resistant, non-magnetic, lightweight titanium Damascus, without the disadvantages of steel Damascus. Made from two or more different types of titanium alloy. A very exotic material that can run $100+ per inch! No two Fat Fly(TM) will be the same. Very unique and one of a kind. Will come in a ring box with titanium split ring.
** Limited to only 75 pieces
