More BigShots!

Alrighty then, now that the BigShot list has been completed I have the first wave of BigShots available for a general sale.

Sold Out! Thank you folks, much appreciated. :)

I will be changing the design of the BigShots and offering a smaller version around the last week of June.

Two Dozen Ti Rulers

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! Wherever you might be I hope you're going to get some gorgeous weather and some much needed rest and relaxation. :)

OK, I have two dozen of the plain blasted ti rulers available and then that's about it for the batch. Although I had much better results than the last batch of rulers I still had a slightly higher loss rate than I had hoped for. I think I have all the kinks figured out now though. Next time I do these I'll shoot for a bigger batch and I will make some anodized ones as well.

Sold Out! **I made it to the PO this afternoon so they are already on the way. **

Stonewashed Titanium Rulers

Howdy folks,

I have a batch of stonewashed ti rulers ready to go. These will are plain, no anodizing. The finish is bright with a zillion little scratches and the contrast with the numbers and scales is really nice. These will wear wonderfully for years to come. The price is $45 plus shipping and the link is below:

Sold Out!

What's Peter Up to Now?

Hehe, wouldn't you like to know? :D Well, at least I hope someone wants to know.... :P

OK, I have some plain uncolored stonewashed rulers done which I will be posting today. There are also some blasted ones coming later this week which will be anodized. Maybe I can squeeze in some patterns for a lottery if I have time.

Next wave of BigShots has just come back from the passivation step. I'll be name stamping them in the next couple of days and then will post a general sale. There are lots of them. As mentioned a little while back I need to nudge the price slightly on this next batch to $55 each.

There are still more Fixers coming but I have to start from scratch on the sheaths. Not a lot of them are left so I will probably do a couple of lotteries for the remaining ones. It will be at least two weeks probably or more before I can get to them.

Other than the above projects I have been doing some much needed yardwork and I need to make a day for shop cleaning and maintenance sometime in the next couple of weeks.

No news or progress on the G3 Prybabies but I need to buckle down and do some grinding on them so I can get them moving along in the process.

Hope everyone is enjoying the nice weather! It will be air conditioner time in a couple of weeks and then I'll be looking for excuses to hang out in my cool basement shop. In the winter it's almost penitential to go down in the cold dungeon but when the hot weather comes it's downright pleasant. Translation= work gets done. :)

DLC Mini Son of PryThing Lottery

Well it's been a while since I have done a lottery. Since it will be a couple of days until I can get enough sheaths done to unveil the Fixer knives I thought I would offer up the last of the DLC MSOPThings. This is the end of them and no more are planned at the moment.

There are 10 of these total, all matte black finish with black cord wrap. They come with a kydex sheath and beadchain. Price will be $180 plus shipping.

Lottery is over!

What's Next?

Hi Folks!

Well, I'm in good shape with the BigShot list. Everyone who signed up on the list during the one month period that it was open have been contacted. I'd say about 96% of folks responded which was an incredible response I thought. Thanks so much everyone for helping me see this project to fruition!

There will be more BigShots coming in a week or so for those folks who wanted more than the two that I allowed in the first round of direct email sales. I'll do at least one or possibly two more rounds of these before making a significant change to the design. There will also be a small price nudge upwards on the next batch to $55 each and hopefully that will not be too excessive.

In other news, ti rulers are at the laser marking company now for the measuring scales to be applied. They should be back by next week I would think.

I'm back into sheath mode and will be unveiling the new fixed blade knife in the next couple of days. They will be released via general sale and there is quite a large number of them coming.

More info coming soon!
