Does anyone know where one can purchase a tool like the Tomity tool with a chainwhip on the opposing side of a lockring tool? It seems as though the Tomity tool is either out of production or very difficult to find. I know that there was a similar Dura Ace tool made but I can't find that one either.
Are they still available anywhere? Any current manufacturers producing these things?

I think the main problem with the Supertool is that it can only fit a small range of cog sizes, no bigger than a 15 tooth. If you need a cog tool for your street bike, then you might very well have a 16-18 tooth cog, which the supertool wouldn't fit well. Oh... and it's $120!
The Shimano tool works great. Long sturdy handle, more than enough chain for a 16t so would be plenty for more teeth. Rubber on the handle for my supple hands.
I can whack it with a hammer to remove seized cogs. I haven't used anything else but it works for me.
