WildCard Credit Card Knives

OK, I have some of these done. They are running $85 plus shipping. I decided to take a chance with international shipping and will send them via the lesser priced Priority Mail but if you reside outside the US and wish to have it sent via Express Mail just email me. Thanks folks! :)

Sold out for now, thank you.

s4biturbo said...

thanks Peter!! i kind of miss these old school sales. ;-)

i think my wife and my bank account likes the lotteries more though!!

Aaron said...

Thanks Peter. That Hex hole is just crying for a DB style Tritium tube insertion. I have it here and waiting. I guess I will finally have to decide what color I am putting in.

Neale said...

I'm a little further along the "slippery slope" as this is my second Atwood tool. Looks great!

Richard G. said...

I will pass but they are terrific! Thanks Peter

jeff said...

Awesome. Are these one per customer? Thanks.

Peter Atwood said...

Thanks guys!

Jeff, yes, I don't have all that many and they are almost all gone from the first and second waves. I'm gonna have to sharpen a bunch more to meet the ones sold today.

Auto Nut said...

Got mine as well. Think I am going to make a kydex for mine, maybe something that will slide over the blade corner only.

Aaron said...

Did the g3 with the screwdriver end make it out to heat treat with these?

That is my not so sneaky round about way of asking about their eta.

Peter Atwood said...

Nope, haven't even ground those yet.

Matt said...

Sweet, my first sharp Atwood tool!

spiff d: said...

kydex be nice for coin pocket carry in jeans....but i think any kind of plastic cardholder will work too :)
...and maybe an UV Ti version?

john said...

how does the regular sale work? i thought you stopped that and did lotteries now.....do i just post a comment syaing i want one?

Peter Atwood said...

The only reason I stopped doing regular sales was because I took a break from the little tools for a while in order to spend some time making knives which everyone has been screaming for for the past year. Pretty soon I will be back to big batches of Prybabies and that sort of thing. But with the knives especially I wanted to give everyone a chance at them because there are so few compared to how many folks seem to want them. The lottery also works very well for one of a kind pieces or where I only make a dozen or so special ones.

spiff d: said...

sounds good, some nano prybaby would also be nice...

DB said...

@ Aaron

Yep, you better believe I'm going to light up this little beauty with a little trit tube. :)

atomu said...

For those late risers on the left coast do you think that you can do releases a little later so that I am not in traffic missing the fun and opportunity to spend my kids trust funds?

Billy S. said...

atomu: Quit whining. Leave to go to work earlier so you'll already be there when there's a release. I wrote a lot more after this but erased it because it was much, much less civil.

atomu said...

billy s.: lighten up, my comment was obviously tongue in cheek. no need to flame a fellow atwood fanboy.

btw got anything atwood you want to trade?

I have an Atwood Ringthing I would like to trade only because I am not using it(I hate it when something isn't getting used). So if you have another Atwood tool you'd like to trade that I could get some use out of then let me know. If not I'm just going to keep the little guy in my drawer. I've been using my SOPThing all the time and it is the best little user knife/prytip/bottle opener.

hookworm said...

Dear everyone, I have been trying to get my hands on a MSOPT for some time now. Would anyone want to trade one (plain SV30, DLC, whatever)? I can offer a Stonewash Nibble and a UV Ti FunnyBone.

simeon03 said...

Hey anonymous email me at simeon03 at msn dot com I am interested in your Ringthing...I have a few non bladed items...who knows we might get a trade done...

DrBruce said...

Peter, how about adding a 'trading post' site on Planet Pocket Tool? A local home for Atwood Tool trades might defuse some of the less popular auction site activity.

As a start, I'll offer a mint RingThing for a mint Wildcard. Email 'bmjarnot at aol dot com' if interested...

Peter:

"drbruce" has a great idea with a trading post site on Planet Pocket tool.

Would you also consider letting us collectors form an Atwood Collectors Club?

Auto Nut said...

Peter,
I don't know if it matters but I did receive the shipping info email from paypal this time. FYI

There are trading sites out there. I have traded and sold on EDC and CPF, forums the key is to sell for the same amount you bought for! Don't gouge on Ebay.

I sold a Funnybone and Atwrench today for my cost, I did not use those tools.

Anonymous said...

Why would peter want to take up his precious toll making time with a trading post and possibly hurt his own sales by allowing people to trade. I would think that simple business practice would dictate against this. Do car dealerships let customers come back on the lot and trade cars with other owners?

jeff said...

Good thing you're getting that hour back this Sunday Peter... You're gonna need it...

There are plenty of sites out there that cater to selling and trading Peters tools. EDC and CPF were mentioned. USN is another that has a strong following. I've even seen them on the mighty JD...

Putting a trading post here would be a mistake and a waste of Peter's time. IMHO...

Anonymous said...

He would NOT be hurting his own sales to allow people to trade on here. He sells out of everything he posts within minutes.

I don't see how this would lose him money. There are so few of anything made, if someone comes on to trade a tool for one someone else has, I think it would be ok because he doesn't lose money from that.

Peter Atwood said...

Guys, I just don't have the time to run a board or whatever. There are tons of boards out there where they buy/sell/trade my stuff as others have noted. But I appreciate the sentiment because I know you all mean well.

Cuso said...

Ok now that the whole "trading post" issue has been dealt with back to WildCard talk, whens the next batch???

DrBruce said...

Peter & anonymous - thanks for redirecting my 'trading post' suggestion to existing forums. No need to reinvent the wheel.

Matthew Harris said...

My new WildCard sheath

Can anyone guess what it is?

It is alloy, cheap and almost everyone has one somewhere in the house or office…

Anonymous said...

Ah! Its the metal slidey thing off a floppy disc. Very creative!

Nubo said...

That is an Awesome job, Matthew Harris!! Perfect union! Serious props for that.

Cheers!

Peter, any update to the boogers etc that were mentioned back on the 2nd of October ?

I thought there was a few coming, along with MSOPThings. You were working on sheaths or something ?

As far as I can tell they haven't shown up.

Just a bunch of lotteries and now wildcards.

Bait and switch ?

Peter Atwood said...

Yeah, bait and switch, it's all a big trick. C'mon man, get real...

Look, I have a few more Boogers coming. All will be DLC coated and all will go up via the lottery. Same with the MSOPThings, SOPTHings, BOBlades, MBOBLades and the rest of the RingThings. I don't have a lot of any of them. I'm slowly getting the cord wraps done and will be getting to sheaths soon.

Boogers have not yet been sent to the DLC platers because I'm still gathering enough items together to make a full load to send.

hey peter,
this is my fav. out of all your tools uase its really veritile anyway I really want one but missed the first ones any idea when more will be out. anytime this year?

xraysrc said...

Bait and switch? WHOA! The man is a designer/craftsman/MICRO-manufacturer! He has what he has and what his production capacity enables him to do. Given that his production capacity is related to ONE guy, I think he does a helluva job. I was very impressed with the number of wild cards that went out knowing that he had to grind and sharpen each blade. And if you're working with a 1 inch blade, that's not that easy to do! (BTW, Peter your grinding skill have improved over the years, judging on the edges of the recent MSOPT and CC knives Yes, I succumbed to eBay for an MSOPT. If you haven't got the gist by now, the man is cleaning out the shop and experimenting with finishes, textures etc. Because the output is low for these items he's using a lottery to determine the sales. I personally have not been "lucky", but hey it's his gig. Don't like it, shop someplace else.

DrBruce said...

Well said, xraysrc, though I'd like to think that the 'bait & switch' comment was tongue-in-cheek. Peter is one heck of an designer and micro manufacturer, and regularly finds time to participate in this community. Many custom makers share "what's on the bench". With Peter, we get to see the good, bad and ugly - warts and all. That's what keeps me coming back.

Cuso said...

Time to lock up the anonymous comments back up. The "funnies" are starting to reappear...

Mike Henry said...

Nice knives. You never know what you can find here in Montague.

Brett said...

It's too quit here at Planet Pocket Tool. I suspect that an opportunity awaits us all here shortly.

murphlights said...

either that or anonymous has pissed him off, and we all have to wait 'til after christmas...

simeon03 said...

Brett....I'm thinking your right, can't wait to see what is in store!!!
