The Griffin Pocket Tool began as a necessity, to create something that could take the place of the load-bearing carabiner, wore on a belt loop. Jam-packed with car keys, bottle opens, pry tools and other multi-tools for years the GPT (Griffin Pocket Tool) was born. Available in a range of sizes, metric and imperial markings, and GPTs available in Stainless Steel, Titanium, Brass and Copper to suit your EDC requirements.
After a year of taking my ideas back to the drawing board, I finally had it! The first GPT was ready. I decided to embark on this journey and opted to leave my comfortable management position from one of the top outdoor recreation companies in Atlanta and launch a Kickstarter. Ohh and my wife was 7 months pregnant with our first daughter, we had recently purchased our first home and I had no experience starting a business. You can imagine the fear. Jumping headfirst, we launched in April 2015 and by May we exceeded our goal of $3,000 by 1200%! The story continues to this day with a second successful Kickstarter for our GPT XL and several new tools on the horizon such as the Griffin Adventure Tool and Griffin Rescue Tool all coming in 2020.
