The difference is that in your pixel piece, you don't have room to make each shadow segment look distinct, so they all blend into what looks like a gradient.
In addition, the shadows on top of the wrench are quite wide and suggest a rounder shape than you seem to intend.

OK! Now we are cooking with gas. When you say you see a gradient, I am able to see what you mean. Thanks! So basically, there isn't enough real estate to do the inset justice within the 7 px handle.

Gradient, I definitely see it. I have simplified the handle. I think it is still lacking something. I am working on some sort of shine to it, but this is it for now.

You could still have the inset if you do is as a solid block of shadow instead of focusing on its bevel.

Excellent idea. I will try that out when I return to my computer. Thanks!
