Artifact

Artifact Small prybar tools with bottle opener cutouts and integral screwdrivers had been the exclusive domain of Peter Atwood prior to the Gerber Artifact. Combining stainless steel construction with a folding razor knife that locks open, all for a MSRP of less than $15, the Artifact will expose this type of multitool to a large number of folks who were previously unable to afford the pricey Atwood offerings
