P.S. Almost everything can be an improvised weapon - it's up to your will to survive.
Call me a Fudd but a .30-06 pen with a wooden cap was plenty fine for our boys in WWII and it's plenty fine now.
Okay but on topic those pocket pry bars probably aren't the worst improvised weapons but most of the ones I've seen just look like they are intended to be EDC jewelery........and I kinda want one.
My pocket pry bar would make a pretty poor weapon. It fits within the small tool pouch inside my shooting stool. I have a small set of channel locks, allen head screw sets, and the pry bar. I carry a Leatherman on my belt and that is probably the most fearsome of my weapons. I can cause a lot of damage with the pliers and screwdrivers, and I have. Lots of nuts and bolts have been over torqued by me!
I also keep a 5" pry bar in my mini tool kit:
Mine is about the size of my thumb. I don't expect it would meaningfully enhance my fighting ability. But it sure can save a knife blade.
I don’t use it much now since I have an actual crowbar, screwdrivers and other assorted tools in the quarter panel of the ambulance. At one point in the late 90’s and 00’s we didn’t have all that stuff though and I put my own bag together.
It wouldn’t make a very good weapon. Some on knife and survival forums have given part of theirs an edge though. That might work.
Nope, not weapons, just part of the "don't fall in the creek with a pocket full of toys" movement. Once EDC went beyond a folder, lighter, flashlight, clever makers realized that guys would make up all sorts of excuses to spend money on things to put in their pockets and show off to their other pals. Some of them were useful (I have several SwissTech gizmos and the CCC Ti pry and ...) and some were just "bragging rights" gizmos. I was as guilty of this as many and have two (many) pocket pries and keychain "tools". It gets to be like shoes are to Imelda Marcos.
Looks key-like, It's gone past TSA many times, lost one to them, but cheap enough to just grab another off Ebay.

Broke the tip on my old timer and I’m not happy about it
Im looking at building some kits like this
