We know girls love diamond rings (well, most of them). What do guys love then? Although no one really cares, we still managed to find one quite possibly will capture their wild hearts. I’m referring to the Tool Ring on Kickstarter.
What is it
Tool Ring is a titanium multi-tool ring. On its own, it can open bottles, tin cans, and parcels. You can attach modular bits to it to turn it into a pen, a screwdriver, a knife, or a flashlight. The ring can hold the bits to give you a Swiss Army knife that you wear on your finger. It’s a wonderful everyday carry (EDC) ring.
What problem does it solve
It solves the awkward problem of girls wanting to propose to their boyfriends but are unable find the one ring.
On a more serious note, have you ever been in a situation you need a pen but all the pens seem to have grown legs and fled? Or when you’re all set to have some beer, but you can’t find a bottle opener? Well, if the latter example stumps you, then you’re probably not a regular drinker. Nothing can stand between a man and his booze. But a man would love nothing more than an everyday carry tool ring that he can impress his drinking buddies with.
Who is it for
That design is definitely targeting men. Especially those into everyday carry (EDC). Tool Ring makes an awesome EDC ring, especially if you’re in the market for a multi-tool.
But I won’t judge if you’re a girl who likes this design. In fact, I’d applaud you for jumping out of the expectation that girls would prefer more feminine and softer jewellery designs. I’m sure there’s a way to mount a diamond on Tool Ring. And given the size of the slot for the modular bits, I think you’ll need a 2 or 3 carat diamond.
Many are misled by Rihanna’s song and think that we can shine bright like a diamond. I’m sorry to break it to you. The sun shines. Diamonds reflect light.
Well, don’t feel too bad. You can still be a diamond. Just reflect like a diamond. That actually makes you sound more deep and intellectual.
Is it innovative
Does one plus one equal two? Does the Earth rotate around the Sun? Yes! That’s my answer for this question, too.
I’ve seen my dad’s garage. It’s full of tools and it’s a mess. Even messier than my life. My dad often yells when he couldn’t find his tools. “Who took my screwdriver! Who took my knife? Who took my pen?”
I wonder if he ever realised that he’s the only one who goes into the garage. So he was in effect yelling at himself. But he was directing that rant at me.
Tool Ring would help my dad a lot. Yes, there are Swiss Army knives that can do the same thing. But you need to remember to carry it with you. With the Tool Ring, it’s almost always on your finger, except when you remove it to use it. Or show off to your drinking buddies.
My dad will finally not interrupt me watching the TV just to find things that he misplaced.
The only thing I’m not so sure of is the flashlight bit. It can’t fit on the ring so you have to carry it on a keychain. And, honestly, who needs a flashlight nowadays when we all carry smartphones? If you’re really into EDC then you probably have a decent pocket flashlight among your gear.
Is it worth it
Yes. I think it’s worth the money. If you are an early bird, you can get one at $35. What does it mean? It means you can get your dad to shut up, for only 35 dollars. At least until he misplaces this and you need to buy another one again.
Also, this is way cheaper than a diamond ring if you want to propose to your boyfriend. And it suits him better – stylish and functional. You’ll get nods of approval from friends who see the engagement ring. A symbol of you forever establishing your future husband’s place in the garage and work shed.
Are there any alternatives
There are Swiss Army knives. But there isn’t a multi-tool ring, at least none I’ve come across. This is also a very smart design that only keeps the bear essentials in a simple, pragmatic form.
However, I want to emphasise this: it’s a tool with dangerous small components. It’s important to keep it away from kids’ reach. I know kids are terrible and people hate them. But safety should always come before hatred. The ring should always be on your finger anyway. So if a kid manages to slip the ring off your finger than you have some issues, man.
I had the perfect conclusion, but my dad’s bellow made me jump from my chair and it’s gone. I don’t have time to try to recall what I wanted to write. He needs his screwdriver. Now!
Note to self: Get Dad
a two Tool Rings (in case he loses one). Or he’ll lose it.
