The Arkenstone was the name of a large and valuable dwarven gemstone in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.
Also, Sizemore with the ArkenShovel is considered the most likely fourth Arkentool. Evidently one of the earliest patents for a shovel went to someone named Sizemore.

It was pointed out that several characters have names that alludes to companies around the world that manufacture tools:
Stanley manufacture hand tools
Zhejiang Wanda Tools Co. Ltd specialize in making pliers
Dish Network formed by Charles W. "Charlie" Ergen provide satellite television service in the United States
There is a company named Rockwell manufacturing tools.
It is also worth noting that one of the earliest patents for a shovel design was given to James B. Sizemore.
Maldeus wrote:Yes, actually, Stanley would, in fact, hand it to Sizemore. He's got an ArkenTool already, so does Wanda, so he'll probably just start passing it around to see if anyone attunes to it. Given the connection between the name Sizemore and the patenting of the shovel, I don't see it as unlikely Sizemore ends up with the ArkenShovel.
Prometheus wrote:I disagree that Stanley would hand it over. He's not particularly thrilled that Wanda attuned to the pliers from what I can tell. He'd probably rather lock up the Arkenshovel (or Arkenwhatever) so that nobody could use it.

You can't do that safely with a real hammer, but you can do it with a kid's squeezy hammer, which is what the Arkenhammer is obviously based on.
The pliers are more of a stretch, but pliers are used to construct things, and can also be used to crush things. So, making uncroaked from the recently croaked, or crushing uncroaked to dust, aren't entirely unnatural functions for the Arkenpliers.
Like I say: a stretch, but it's the best I can come up with.
Erk wrote:That's actually an interesting thought. It would put the Hammer more in line with the other Tools we've seen, with Stanley just not using it appropriately.
