Son of PryThings

Full sized Son of PryThings with kydex sheath and mini teklok. This is a small release. Will have more in the coming weeks and also many more knives so no worries if you miss this batch.

SOLD OUT! Thanks very much folks, I really appreciate it! And I appreciate you bearing with me while I get this new system figured out. It worked very smoothly indeed and it's an easy way to get the word out to everyone fairly and at the same time.

Great Peter. Hope it was as seamless on your end (transitioning to the blog for available tools) as it was on our end.

Thanks Peter,
I lucked out and got one. As you requested one per customer.
This system works fine.
Thanks

Rick said...

Wow, I'm not sure how I missed these. I was watching all morning!

jerry said...

Thanks Peter...

Rick said...

BTW-they look great! I think I better go to RSS school. ;D

Apparently your new system makes it easier for those who are tech savvy enough to be part of the Geek Squad. Here is a blurb from a heavily visited forum from this morning. "zaptxt worked for me. My phone alerted within minutes of Peter updating his site and I was able to score a SOPT."

Thanks guys!

Matt Bobryk said...

I was lucky enough to get one as well, and the new system seems to work fine. As far as tech savvy goes, I'm pretty middle of the road and was able to buy one. One quick questions though, are these SOPT different from the older ones? It looks like they're missing the ridges by the bottle opener. Is that true or is it just the angle in the photo?

Peter Atwood said...

Matt, these did not have the thumb ridges. I decided to just grind them smoother. Otherwise these are all part of the original batch so same thickness, etc. I have had them sitting on the shelves for about two years and just not got around to grinding them and finishing them. :D

You've been holding out for 2 years!!

Just kidding, I am glad otherwise you would have just been grinding these and we wouldn't have seem some of your great innovations in the last couple of years - Like the atwrench that I am waiting to score.

jeff said...

Oh man, not again... Well, there's always next week. Had to work this morning so I missed out...

Joel (jodj) said...

I cant tell on my mobile phone. Do these new old stock SOPTs have the old satin finish, or did they get the new cryo - stonewash treatments.

-- Joel

Peter Atwood said...

Yup, these are all recently ground and heat treated and all feature the stonewash finish. I had the cut out blanks sitting around for a long time, not the finished knives.

Franz said...

AAAAARGH!!!!!

Missed them :((((((((((((((((

(...but on second thoughts... the woman that was distracting me when the MSoPTs were being sold, was well worth my distraction ;D )


So I hope to be able to get one of those with the next batch... The MSoPT would be my favorite Atwood tool so I'll stand watch night and day :)

jerry said...

These are still small enough for neck carry I suppose.

Rick said...

Hi Peter,

When you post the next round of SOPTs will you use a new post or this same post? I am wondering if I will need to subscribe to the RSS feed for just this post or your entire blog. Probably both?

Peter Atwood said...

Well, they are on the line. Personally I like really small stuff for neck carry but my "full sized" knives are usually small enough that most makers would consider them neck knives. Most maker's neck knives are huge in my opinion.

Peter Atwood said...

Rick, I'm thinking I will post a new post for every new release. Might be the same link but it will be a new post each time.

I can't tell you how refreshing it is to see you finally admitting that you previous methods were inherently unfair and biased towards the resellers who refused to comply with your requests.

What took you so damned long?

Peter Atwood said...

You know what, I do the best I can. Many will argue that this isn't fair either because now the only way to find out a release is to go to the blog and those who are savvy enough to receive feeds are going to find out first. If a batch is 50 items and 200 people are signed up then do the math. No one will ever be happy until I have this stuff made in a factory, 10,000 units a time. I give up!

Rick said...

First of all, thanks for replying to my post Peter! I'll get this figured out. If not, not a big deal. It makes it fun!

I'm sorry that people have to be so ignorant when it comes to this stuff. Lets be more respectful towards Peter and the way he decides to sell his knives and tools! Please don't ruin a good thing for the rest of us! Enough with the reselling/unfair type of posts. Peter's fan base is increasing daily and not everyone is going to be able to buy one of everything he makes. I personally love the fact that Peter creates these things himself. Even if that means I have to get lucky to get one of his creations. I'll love that knife or tool all the more.

Peter does an amazing job taking care of us. He is also very kind. Don't walk on him! Other makers would tell you to go "F" yourself and would never sell to you again forcing you to buy from the resellers.

Also, enough with the anonymous posts when you say stuff like that. Email Peter directly and be polite about it! He does this because he enjoys it!

spiff d: said...

i take 20,000 :P
will keep trying every morning, can't give up until i get lucky ...
esp now my friends all asking to get them some blades too
nice, thanks peter

jerry said...

Thanks Peter, I'm finding what some consider as a neck knife more suited for belt carry. The MSoPT is the heat...

jerry said...

I agree on all points rick...well said.

Peter Atwood said...

Folks, the bottom line is I will never be able to make enough to satisfy everyone or do things the way some people want. That's just the way it is and I do the best that I can.

To be honest, the whole thing is all done by the seat of my pants anyway and hopefully I get smarter as I go along. Progress is sometimes slow but I keep going forward and I try to maintain my good humor even when things aren't going as smoothly as planned. :)

souptree said...

Great post, Rick.

As for you, Peter, I learn from you constantly. You're a real example of how to go through life as a class act.

THartley said...

I don't understand why so many people whine so much about the way you do business.

From first hearing about your stuff until 1st successful purchase was a couple of months for me, and now my 3rd piece is in transit - IT'S NOT THAT HARD !

Dan Tanner said...

ARGH!! You post on the weekends...makes me sad. I have too much going on to get on the computer until Sunday night... (*sigh*)

Cuso said...

Are we back on THAT subject again?? I thought we where talking SOPS here, and their triumphant return...Talk about christmas in september, grats to all that where able to snag one.

Anonymous said...

I guess Franz and I had the same problem when these were offered up, heh heh.

Maybe Mr Grouchy Anonymous can take several months off work and come help you in your shop for free so you can heed his beckon call on tools. In the mean time he can have a nice cup of... ah nevermind.

On second thought that might be a pretty cool vacation. How about it Peter? :)
