Nice Guy Machine Co




I wanted a 5” pry bar as a traveling companion when my wife and I spent 10 days in Medellín, Colombia since the laws for knife carry are blurry at best and the last thing I wanted was a few nights in the clink in South America.  After that trip, a 5” EDC pry bar became my most used and carried EDC item.

This EDC tool is intended to be functional, minimal art and a straight up high quality & useful tool.  The center cutout serves as framing for the tool but also cuts weight while adding grip.


  • designed, machined & finished by me in Colorado, USA. 
  • perfect pry tip wedge (not too obtuse or too acute)
  • hand finished pry tip “edge” (definitely not sharp but definitely not blunt)
  • 6al4v Titanium construction
  • integral pocket clip
  • bottle cap lifter
  • cap lifter is a 1/4” wrench (hex or square) 
  • cap lifter and pocket clip kept to one side leaving the opposite with a clean, straight edge
  • triangular milled lanyard hole. (Mr. NiceBar is 100% intended to be carried with a lanyard bead or a large lanyard knot). Even if you’re *knot* a lanyard guy/gal… try it for a week.  
  • center slot serves as a shackle wrench
  • 12” of 275# USA made cord included.  

Dimensions: 5” long X 1/4” thick and the width tapers from 0.5” to 0.6” I carefully chose these dimensions after much use of previous pry bars.  It’s the sweetest sweet spot.

Intended uses include: E & E tool, non lethal self defense kubotan, a perfect scraper, poking, prying, opening things, a 1/4” wrench for hard to reach spots, and - last but not least - for the opening and destruction of tasty beverages.  It also makes a wonderful pocket worry stone.

When I make and release batches, these are $135
