G5 Prybabies

Howdy Folks,

It's a cold and slightly dreary afternoon here today, good time for a sale. :)

Today I have the first wave of G5 Prybabies done. These are stonewashed S35v and they are similar to the earlier G3 design with a couple of small improvements. For this design I have changed the old grippy thumb scallops along the edge to hex indents which works well with the overall design and provides a unifying effect. I also added about 1/8" of length to the tool by bolstering the thickness on the butt end. This adds strength to the wrench set. Speaking of the wrench set, it remains SAE with sizes ranging from 1/4"-9/16". The bottle opener cut out area wrench is a SAE 7/16". OAL is just over 3 1/8".

2/14/11: I just noticed that I mistakenly put on the insert cards that these are S30v steel, They are in fact S35v steel. Sorry for the mixup.

This is the first wave, a few more remain to finish up tomorrow or Monday. No stamped ones in this batch and there won't be any XLs here either as I would have to revert back to the Original old school pattern for any XLs to happen.

The G5 Prybabies run $60 plus shipping and the link is below:

First wave is sold out, thank you so much! :)

Been waiting for the G5 for awhile... any other finishes coming soon?

Yeah! Prybabies!

Now, how about a line of mini keychain tools that are only 2" long . . .

Awesome!

After months of waiting, I just ordered my first Atwood pocket tool, and its exactly what I have been lusting over since I first discovered Peter's work. A G5 Prybaby!

Thank You Peter!

If G6 sends the SAE wrench set up to 19/32" then all the fixed gear kids will want one just as much as I do! (the rear hub bolts are 15mm).

Wow, those look soo cool! Where is my tax return? Aghh! ;p

Peter, Would you ever do a tool in brass or bronze? Maybe a marine tool of some sorts. Sure titanium is cool but we don't find titanium roman statues at the bottom of the ocean. Sometimes its the tried but true methods that keep people coming back.

Peter Atwood said...

Brass or bronze are not strong or durable enough for pry tools and wrenches.

I like how you omitted the grinds along the edges near the V-notch compared to the G3. A subtle difference that appears to make the pry end more of the G5 more stout.
I am guessing the face of that grind would have reached the hex line indent breaking the linear symmetry of the hex cut all together.

Hope to see a Holga pic in there when it arrives!

Publius said...

P.S. Peter - you are also a good photographer. I've never seen you post an unattractive picture of your work.

Jerry said...

Any lefties in the next batches?

Peter Atwood said...

I forgot about lefties...maybe. I will try to keep it in mind.

Please tell me you will have more of the G5s soon! Also, I will be a first time buyer...do you have payment setup info I can leverage so I will be ready when the opportunity presents? Thanks!
