This is Cool

Check these out! My friend Kenny down at the local machine shop made these neat little keyfobs. It's like a ball inside of a cube and the center is hollow with little satellite cubes. They are machined from solid aluminum and then anodized black, supposedly with hard coat but I'm not sure if it's HA III or not. At any rate they are nifty and he has some available, think he's asking $25 for them, might be slightly more, not sure. If anyone is interested please post here and I'll take a count. If enough folks want one I might ask Gary Moore if he's interested in carrying them as Kenny is not set up with email.

This is just strange enough to be cool. Any chance of having it "atwoodized" with screwdriver bit or open wrench?

jjw said...

I would like one of the key fobs. They look great.

zombiedad said...

Oh yeah, and I'd be interested in one, too. (dope slaps self)

Jonathan said...

It's odd. It's small. It's metal. Therefore, I'm in for one. Thanks for keeping an eye out!

Robb said...

I'm totally in for one. Strange, because I really don't have anything on my keyring thats strictly for shits and giggles, but this piece is just too entriguing. Plus I'm a fan of good milling / machining. This just begs to be played with.

Moore Cutlery said...

Hi Everyone!
I would first like to thank Peter for allowing me this opportunity to carry Kenny's items & for allowing me to be a dealer of his for more than a couple years now.

I will have the (20) "Cubes" in stock hopefully by April 15 & take orders on a 1st come/1st served basis.
I'll be trying to spread these around, so I will limit them to 1 per customer at first. You will be able to purchase them directly from my website www.moorecutlery.com as soon as they arrive.
Thanks in advance to all of you.
Sincerely,
Gary Moore

It's limited to one per person.

DB said...

Did these ever go on sale today like they were supposed to? I was home all day today, but never saw a change on the moorecutlery.com website...

Sanders said...

I saw the expected date set back a day and now it is still not up for sale. I am waiting.............

Moore Cutlery said...

The Cubes are now in stock but going fast!
Thanks,

scott said...

they are up. not many left. i got one. get yours while you can!

DB said...

Dang, looks like I missed them...

Robb said...

Of course I waited half the day for them, and they were added after I left. Just my luck.

Got home and they weren't on the site anymore.

Scott R. said...

I got one, guess I got lucky again!

Now if I could just be as lucky when Peter puts up new stuff!

Peter Atwood said...

Just a reminder, I am not selling these. I just posted the picture because I figured this was right up the alley of a lot of my fans. Gary Moore is handling all sales of these items from Kenny. My understanding is that there is another batch in the works right now so a bunch more are coming. Thanks!

Moore Cutlery said...

The first batch of 20 Cubes has come & gone in less than a day. Thank you to all who purchased them & placed orders in advance!
There is another batch in the process & I will gladly accept e-mails from all interested people, as a way of "Holding" them for orders. (Please, also leave a phone number as secondary form of contact.)

The next batch will not be limited to (1) per person, so those wanting more than one, now is the time to place that order.

My contact info is on my website at: www.moorecutlery.com

Thanks again for your patience & purchases!
