Swingers!

Hello Everyone,

It's a warm one today, still 91F degrees here and it reached a high close to 100F. At least it's not too humid or it would be intolerable. Anyway, I hope everyone is staying cool!

I'm working on a new flat tool in titanium and have the first wave ready to go. These are geared toward golfers and they're something that I have been talking about making for years but just never seemed to get around to the project. Recently I had started thinking about making a run of some sort of flat tool but didn't want to revisit my old designs. So I thought, why not revive the divot repair tool idea...and with a nudge from a couple of my customers who are avid golfers I sat down and did some drawings.

The Swinger is made of 6al4v titanium, a little over 3 inches long and about 1 inch wide. The thickness is .060 which is thin but not too thin...the tool still has a little bit of substance to it but is thin enough that it will slip into the dirt easily. The Swinger features a divot repair fork, a bottle opener and a simple light duty pry/scraper tip. You could probably use it as a club rest with a little jockeying. Even non golfers might find this a handy little backup piece for the wallet.

The first wave is anodized blue and I will follow this one with some plain unanodized ones and then maybe some more in different colors.

The Swinger is $45 plus shipping. Thanks as always for stopping by!

Blue One are Gone, Thank you! More on the way in other colors.

Yay! Thanks for making these a reality. Probably most anticipated Atwood tool to date. ;)

The design is cool and the blue ano looks great. I'm looking forward to putting some use. Great gift for golfers too!

I played golf today with my brother, and I actually don't have a divot tool in my bag! The swinger has my name all over it! I hate I missed this wave! I hope I can snag a plain or maybe another wave of ano blue.

I love the diversity with your creations Peter. As always, good job!
