That’s a genuine vintage Silicon Graphics field-maintenance screwdriver.

I found a pile of these little pen-sized screwdrivers that were issued to Silicon Graphics field support personnel. I worked there a very long time ago, and somehow accumulated a bunch of them. Because I have so many, I don’t feel bad about destroying one. It’s perfect because it has a removable shaft that is hex-shaped. I can cut the end off and be left with a Phillips head on a shaft I can turn.

The brave SGI screwdriver has given its life in the name of science

I had one where the body of the screwdriver looked identical to that, except it was from Reputable Systems, the now defunct SGI reseller
