For the Semper Paratus Crowd

Boing Boing

A useful tool for covert and undercover operators, those that travel abroad in unstable countries, or anyone at risk of being held unlawfully.

The Titanium Escape Ring adds another tool to the operator's E&E options for escaping captivity. It's a simple but elegant-looking ring made of titanium, cut from solid barstock and polished to a mirror finish. But unlike all other rings, this one contains a saw and handcuff shim pick combination tool which is completely hidden from view when worn.

Located on a finger, its always in the exact area needed to quickly access and deploy, even when handcuffed. The shim can be used to open single-locked handcuffs, while the saw can cut zip-ties, disposable handcuffs, duct tape, rope, and other non-metallic materials.


  1. I looked it up...and I must admit, I always admire and covet a nicely designed and stylish nifty tool!

  2. Those rings are a dead giveaway to your position in a firefight. Shiny objects whether they be watches, rings, or an IMI Desert Eagle only serve to attract bullets to your position in a low-light encounter. Civilians are better of with a rape-whistle or a cellphone than a shiny trinket like this or a civvie-legal gun, so a professional like me can respond when you are cornered by UZI-wielding thugs in a mall bathroom.

  3. That thing looks like a good way to tear up one's own finger.

    By the way, is anyone else tired of Mallcop or whatever Gecko45 is calling himself these days?

  4. No, thanks. It looks like it could give me "quite the boo-boo". I'll pass.

    Now, where did I put my troll repellent?
