Real Avid: The Bowsmith – Designed by Murphy’s Law

If you’re a bowhunter, Ole’ Murphy has smiled as he broke a string loop or loosened that allen screw he knew you didn’t have the tool for. Admit it, we are no match for Murphy and how many times has it been said in an emergency, “If I only had a … !” Thanks to Real Avid they have taken some notes from Ole’ Murphy. Though, they have not disclosed what they paid him, rumor has it, Murphy’s Law actually invented the Real Avid Bowsmith.

Real Avid is all about “rugged” and their Bowsmith bow tool is all that and more. Torx™ fasteners secure the entire Bowsmith tool system and all the implements are made of stainless steel. The anodized aluminum side plates combined with the ergonomic design allow it to fit the hand and feel comfortable. If Murphy helped with design he was definitely concerned with quality.


This tool was born with the bowhunter in mind. It is a micro toolbox for those who enjoy the challenge of a stick and string. Somehow Real Avid packed twenty-eight tools  into this hand held multi-tool.


Just maybe having this tool within reach will make Mr. Murphy stay away and we’ll never have to use some of these handy tools.

Here is the rundown.


  • Needle nose pliers with cutters
  • Nock spreader
  • Nock crimp
  • D-Loop Set tool
  • 14 Allen bits
  • Integrated 1/4″ hex driver
  • Ceramic file for sharpening a broadhead
  • Steel file for sharpening whatever
  • Arrow insert extractor tool
  • Fletching stripper
  • Broadhead wrench
  • String separator
  • Tree step starter
  • Knife (of course)

Packed into a durable Cordura® case the Bowsmith is a convenient tool that will definitely be on the gear list for the next bowhunt. Having this emergency advantage in a convenient package is true innovation. It has been said, “If you can’t beat ’em … join ’em” and somewhere Real Avid and Murphy’s Law must have had a come to Jesus meeting.

“… he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.” Psalm 7:12
