With the right design, a single piece of gear can replace a whole box worth of tools. Cramming as much utility into as little pocket space as possible like that is the goal for many EDCers, so when BigiDesign makes a new pocket tool, people take notice. They've shown what they could do with their impossibly compact utility knife (the TPT) as well as their bit driver system (the BitBar), and now they're putting their spin on wrenches. The BigiDesign Ti EDC Wrench intuitively adjusts to take the place of 25 differently sized wrenches while riding comfortably in your pocket, just like your favorite EDC knife.

The Ti EDC Wrench isn't actually a new design, but rather, a modern reinvention of an antique adjustable wrench design. BigiDesign shrunk it down and added a pocket clip to make it more EDC friendly but kept its main screw-adjusting mechanism intact for an intuitive, easy-to-use experience. The hex spanner portion of the tool can be adjusted by turning the “screw” on the side, letting it latch onto 25 sizes of both standard and metric bolts. Once latched on, the tool's 3.85” length gives a full grip and ample torque for even the tougher jobs you might face. The Ti EDC Wrench measures 1” wide and only about a quarter inch thick, giving it a compact silhouette similar to a pocket knife. It comes with a sturdy pocket clip too, making it one of the easiest ways to EDC a wrench. Last but not least, the frame of the tool is built from grade 5 titanium for long lasting durability without weighing you down.

If you're still wasting precious pocket space on multiple wrench tools, the Ti EDC Wrench looks like a promising way to consolidate your kit. You can secure yours by backing the fully funded project at the link below.

EDC has become so popular, which is great for all of us gadget geeks, but too many prospective manufacturers feel the need to over-engineer and over-spec simple tools like this, thus pricing them well out of the range of the average joe. Even with a great design such as this, they've taken what could/should be a popular commercial success and turned it into an overpriced novelty.
That said, would love to see something like this integrated into an EDC knife or multi-tool handle.
imo they choose Ti and having a minimalist design to promote a sense of sophistication by the owner to their tool, like the feeling of having a kershaw cryo versus having a chris reeve sabenza
Paul Tobeck ·
I'll likely never know that feeling, as I've always had a utilitarian attitude towards my gear. I buy stuff to use, and use hard and would never think of taking anything expensive out in the real world. If I paid $200 for a knife, it would be hanging on the wall in a display case!
I have a similar feeling as you, if someone even gifted me a CR sabenza, I'll baby the hell out of it, because I know S35VN is pretty hard to be sharpened, plus it's a beautiful knife. However, I value both functionality and looks, so I usually turn to chinese knives, which is not a sentimental issue for me as I'm not even a US citizen.

Anyone who really needs to "EDC" a wrench is going to carry real tools, not an $85 novelty.
should have made a stainless steel version to reduce the price, but the main concern is the length of the wrench, if lengthened a bit, more torque can be exerted to tighten/loosen a nut efficiently

plus, the clip in kickstarter is not deep carry, imo deep carry clip implies the tool does not protrude at all when clipped into a pocket, overall a neat little tool, but as people here has stated, it has some design limitations so that it can be fitted into a pocket

On that note, it should be able to do more than 3/4". I would need it to do more than little stuff if I was going to carry it in my bag every day.
but then it'll be less pocket friendly, which is the design scope (design limitation) of this tool, unless they adapt the mechanism of the modern adjustable spanner (aka crescent wrench in US)

Even making it an inch longer wouldn't be that much of a big deal. Still pocket friendly but would do a ton more sizes. Also making it easier handle and apply more torque.

Will prob add to my collection, just also backed another multitool MultiGrip on Kickstarter
Tony Davidson ·
Neat design, but I’ll wait a cpl of years till they’re $20 at Lowe’s.
Chuck Dee ·
I like to spend the extra to support the original designers in their efforts to get things to market.
Tony Davidson ·
I can understand that as well. It is an ingenious product, as many on here are. Just out of my budget for a while.
Jim Gerace ·
I have to agree. The typical quality crescent wrench is around $15 to $20. Shrink it down to pocket size and it should be even less. I mean, I get it--it's a great design, but until it fits within a normal budget for such things, I'm going to have to wait for the version of the masses.
