Steel Pests

Happy Black Friday Folks!

I'm gearing up for a busy couple of weeks with many batches of items in the queue for finishing. Today I have a wave of Pests ready to go. These are made of substantial 5/32" thick S30v steel with a smooth stonewashed finish and are my simple and elegant nod to the classic pocket screwdrivers of the past. The Pests run $50 plus shipping. Thank you for stopping in and hope everyone has a relaxing and stress free weekend ahead!

First Wave of Steel Pests Sold Out for now! Thank you!

+1 on the your choice of beverages!

Peter Atwood said...

Thanks! Yes, as a former homebrewer I tend to like malty beers with a lot of flavor. I'll drink most anything if it is good, domestic or imported. Not as big of a fan of hops as some people though so I usually steer clear of IPAs and barleywines.

Where are all those shoppers? 9:15 Pacific and still available, amazing. I'm content with my Ti pest so I'll leave one more available. Recieved my steel Bookie, sweet little blade, love it. Thanks Peter.

Hi Peter:

Are you using a Pest to open your beverage? In that picture it looks like the tip is squared off; or is it just a trick of the camera?

Peter Atwood said...

Yes it is a Pest. Must be a trick of perspective. ;)

Going to pass though it pains me sorely ! Spent to much on tools and flashlights recently ! They look great ... good luck people.

Spaten is unlucky for me. It was the beer in my hand the time I got arrested for drinking in public. (D'oh!)

I'm psyched to pick up one of these. What's the approximate hardness on the S30V?

Peter Atwood said...

D'oh! Rockwell is 57-59.

I can finally stop "biting my nails" waiting for the steel pests to arrive. My wonderful wife refreshed the blog page and purchased while I was unavailable at work. I am a Pest fanatic... plain Ti, green Ti, UV Ti, Blue "bee stamped" Ti, and now steel. Perfect for opening a Spaten!

Next wave coming soonish?

I am truly heartbroken today. Had to pass on this one because of the light holiday budget. I Luckily have a Ti Pest to console me. Peter, do you foresee any steel Pests after the new year. This is a fantastic design! Sure would like to score one of these beauties down the road.

I have quite a few more coming this weekend. One guy can only do so much in one day though. ;)
