Product Feature: Tygh-Tool


Introducing the all new, Firefighter Pocket Multi-tool, the Tygh Tool, available now on our site! Created by a Philadelphia Firefighter, Dan Tygh, who wanted to solve a problem and make his job a little more effective-thus, the Tygh Tool was born. He wanted to make a product to keep his trips to and from the truck limited as it was wasting time on the scene. He wanted to make a tool that was small and versatile, but could be used for both routine and also less common firefighting tasks. He also wanted to combine tools for both engine and ladder work.


The Tygh Tool doesn't only function as a general tool, such as a hammer, wrench or pry bar, but it's tailored for firefighter needs by including the capabilities of a spanner wrench, gas shut-off, rope hose tool, door chock and much more! You might wonder how there can be over a dozen uses in one small tool-but it's true!

In less than 1lb, and easy to fit in your pocket, made out of a single piece of stainless steel, the Tygh Tool WILL survive the hardships of any fire job and will quickly become the most useful tool in your gear.

Summer is upon us and with that comes cookout season. Just picture it....the smell of the food lingering through the neighborhood, friends and family around you, and you, flipping burgers with the coolest grill master sets, ever.

The Ultimate Firefighting Grill Master set tames flames, shows off your grilling skills, and helps you look cool while doing it. With the Laster Cut "Fire Dept" Maltese Cross Spatula, and "Fire & Rescue" etched into the handle of all the pieces-it's the perfect gift idea for the Firefighter in your life!  The bottle openers at the end of both the spatula and the fork and integrated into the blade of the tongs, these are THE grilling tools for those looking to kick back and have a good time this summer.

These tools will make you look good at the grill and deliver the performance you expect when tackling a tough challenge. The backbone of all three pieces is a continuous, heavy duty stainless steel piece. Thermal protection is provided by the hard maple wood handles secured to the stainless steel by durable brass rivets. Rehab is only one step away thanks to an integrated bottle opener on all three pieces. Now you can show up on the scene with all the tools to show off the pride and skills of any firefighting cook.

Specifications:

  • Heavy-Duty Stainless Steel
  • Hard Maple Handles
  • Durable Brass Rivets
  • Full-Tang Construction
Available to be sold just as the spatula, or just with the tongs, or in the ultimate grilling pack---these are THE gift for the firefighter in your life. Heck, grab some for yourself. Or better yet---bring them over to your next barbeque to thank the cook.

Check 'em out here.

Happy Grill Season!
