Blue Bookies!

Howdy folks,

It's been a little slow recently but that's because I've been scrambling to get various projects underway and on the road to being finished. Some big batches of stuff will be going out to heat treat later this week...speaking of heat treat, those G2 Keytons are still in there but should be coming back next week I believe. I'll have those and lots of other tools coming on in the next couple of weeks so stay tuned!

Today I finally have the titanium Bookies finished up. This is an interesting concept I think, a titanium bookmark tool...or as I like to call it, a Page Blade. They are made of thin (.040") titanium and feature a bottle opener and light pry tip/screwdriver. OAL is 4 1/2 inches and the blade portion is 2 1/2 inches. Really neat little item. I only did a small batch of these so I decided to mostly finish them off in one color, blue. And yes, a hardened 420 steel version of the same thickness but with full flat grind will be coming next month and that piece will have an additional function as a letter opener/desk tool. ;) Still trying to decide if the steel ones will get sharpened or not...

Anyway, these titanium Bookies are $55 plus shipping. As always, thank you for stopping by. :)

Blue Bookies are gone, thank you!

Looks neat! I am more interested in the sharpened ones coming soon, but I went ahead and got one of these in case I miss out on the next ones. Good job Peter, I am always impressed with your endless ideas for cool tools.

Digging the use of Ansel Adams in that pic!

This is super cool, but I think it might scratch my Kindle (?). Another great tool Peter.

Watching all of these come and go is killing me!

Congrats to all of the lucky buyers!

My wife's gonna flip, as much as we like to read. I can feel a new Atwood-o-phile being born. Maybe it will make it easier for all my future purchases.

Great tool to use with a great book... Probably the most interesting of the 3 books that Ansel Adams wrote in this series.

Got my Bookie last night, and it's pretty cool. The wife is in love, and all is right in the world. Noce blue ano!
