The Atwrench is very similar to the G3 Prybaby in features but it’s no beauty queen. The Atwrench is like a tank compared to the G3 prybaby, you would be hard pressed to find a pocket tool that is tough as this one and has as many features as it does. Like the G3 Prybaby; the Atwrench has an alligator wrench built into the frame of the tool. The wrench on this model uses SAE sizes and there is a metric version available if you can get your hands on one.
First and foremost the Atwrench is a pry tool and this is one area where the tool excels. Unlike the G3 Prybaby that has forks in the pry area; the Atwrench has one large pry surface that resembles a flat screwdriver. With the G3 I was afraid to use the pry end too hard, but that is not the case here. The tool is thick enough I can use it for some serious prying and tightening of flat style screws and it doesn’t even phase it. The last feature on the Atwrench is the bottle opener. Bottle openers are for some reason standard on most custom pocket tools these days. I am not sure if it’s just a cleaver use of space that would otherwise be wasted or if pocket tool makers need some brews to drink after a long day.
When I have to decide between the G3 and the Atwrench it’s tricky to pick one. The G3 is much lighter and the forks can be used to strip wire or turn a Phillips head screw. The Atwrench on the other hand can out pry the G3 and it can turn flat head’s where the G3 does not do very well. If you looking for sheer brute strength and a tool that laughs at most jobs then the Atwrench is your pocket tool. It features most of the versatility of the G3 but without the cosmetic fluff that you don’t need in a hard use tool.
