Our Story

Every idea starts with a problem.

Ours was obvious: high quality mechanics and automotive tools are too expensive.

It turns out there is a simple explanation.

Most traditional retailers buy tools from manufacturers, mark them up 2 or 3 times what they paid, then sell them to you! That’s a markup of 200-300%… well in excess of the average mall jewelry store’s markup on wedding rings!

Meanwhile, traditional tool trucks have 2 or 3 steps in their distribution, which means even higher mark-up!!  For what some of these tools sell for, you would think the tools are gold plated!!    

We started Carbyne Tools as an alternative to overpriced retailers and traditional tool trucks.  

By working on much smaller mark-up and using our in-house tool expertise to source top quality materials and designs, we’re able to provide high-quality long-lasting tools at a lower price.

Carbyne Tools was inspired by what promises to be the strongest material on earth: Carbyne. Forty times stronger than the diamond in that wedding ring, this mysterious form of carbon has long eluded attempts at reliable synthesis. Recently scientists have made strides towards mass production of this wonder material.

The promise of great strength and performance makes the Carbyne name a natural choice for our company founders.

Our small group of tool industry professionals have banded together to fulfill demand for high quality tools built to withstand the rigors of daily use, at prices that don’t require two months salary.

We don’t make every tool in the toolbox.

We only offer tools we’re confident will exceed your performance expectations. Each one is sourced from top quality producers and tested to ensure fit, finish, durability and performance.

Every Carbyne tool meets or exceeds ANSI and/or ASME standards. We only use top quality steel, aluminum, brass and rubber components, and the highest quality finishes.  Each one carries a lifetime warranty.

Oh, and we sell them at a fair price.
