While wearing jewelry is a great way of expressing your individuality, when it comes to things like rings, some men can get a little ... uncomfortable. Today you’re wearing a ring, tomorrow it’s high heels, right? Well, perhaps those guys would feel better about donning the rough n’ ready Titanium Utility Ring.

As its name implies, the ring is indeed made from “aerospace grade” titanium, and it incorporates five tiny-but-functional folding tools – it’s like wearing a Leatherman on your finger, essentially.

Its tools include a bottle opener, straight blade, serrated blade, saw blade, and a comb. Yes, a comb. According to the ring’s Georgia-based creator, Bruce Boone, “Although the comb is tiny, it actually does a surprisingly good job on the 'stache or head!”.

Boone makes each ring to order, sized for the specific customer. The ring’s multiple titanium plates are held together with brass rivets, and have a combined width of nine millimeters.

It can be ordered through Bruce’s Etsy shop, for US$385. Should you be looking for something testosterony for one of your other fingers, you might also want to check out the Kinekt Gear Ring.

Does it do prostate examinations?

Rings are dangerous and titanium is extremely hard to cut which makes removing them if the finger has swelled almost impossible. The only ring I'll wear is a wedding ring and I'll borrow the ring for the wedding and have the real ring tattooed on my finger.

Nice! A titanium ring is not that hard to cut off in an emergency...it's harder than gold and silver alloys, but not as hard as stainless steel. Which raises the question, why not make the cutting blades out of stainless steel?

I have a TI wedding band from Boone. He used to make TI bicycle parts. Nothing but high quality stuff from him.

Dear nutcase, you actually honor your nickname.....prostate examinations with a ring that holds a straight, saw and serrated blades ? Why not ask Dr. Wolverine to do the exam instead? Yikes..!!!

Hah, something else to lose at the security scan when passin through the airport. I've lost too many inexpensive pocket knives already. Not spending $400 only to realize it's still on my finger half way through the line.

@Vanervort, I hear you. I want one with a hand cuff key. :)

No problem getting through TSA with that one. All my Titanium Six Million Dollar Man parts don't even make the machines squeak! Getting a tattooed wedding ring makes one wonder if you're that paranoid about everything, why not just get a tinfoil hat tattooed on while you're at it. :-) (when working with machinery or welding, I just remove mine ...the ring, not the hat) :-D

How stupid, as if the thugs do not have enough dangerous and hidden weapons. That is all that this ring is, another dangerous weapon to slice innocent people when being bashed outside a nightclub or somewhere.

re; pickypilot As a child I caught the ring I was wearing on the rope of a swing when I jumped off and it hurt terribly despite being a cheap veritable sized ring with the gap. As an adult I saw a finger get torn off when the ring caught on the top of a wooden privacy fence the guy was jumping over. Rings are a danger I am not willing to take.
