THOR Hammer Tool Kit

By: on May 29, 2016

Utilitarian cosplay. How many occasions do you have to use those two words together in a sentence? (And can you say them 5 times fast?) Ever since I got the ix-nay on wearing my "formal and "functional" Mongol armor suit to work when we host important business meetings for potential investors from Asia, I hav none. But Dave Delisle of Dave's Geeky Ideas has created at least one cosplayer's dream with a very utilitarian side to it: the THOR Hammer Tool Kit.

Before you start sending me emails about how you hope I get hit by a semi, let me state the disclaimer: Dave's Geeky Ideas are called "Geeky Ideas" because they're just that. Ideas. Concepts for brilliance that he's developed mock-ups for, but has not actually made, and cannot sell to you. Maybe some day he'll change his mind, but in the mean time, we'll have to try to just enjoy the idea for its intangible beauty.

The THOR Hammer Tool Kit starts with Mjolnir as a clever hinged tool box, and then opens up to reveal a full set of handyman implements. Check out the GIF here. Including an exterior carrying handle that doubles as that for the set's actual, modern-day hammer. (It secures into a removable tray for stable storage and transport.)

THOR's tool kit would also contain a socket set, wrench, pliers, and screwdriver set. Under the removable tray is space for loose tool and nut / bolt storage.
