Gearing up for a busy week here. I'm working on Flat G5 Prybabies(R) today and hope to do a sale tomorrow. Also coming later this week are some lovely 5 Ribbed Longslides but this time in aluminum with black HAIII hardcoat anodizing. And we're getting a new BigShot design dialed in this week which will hopefully be ready just before or just after Christmas, we'll see how it goes.
Anyway, today I have the rest of the G5 Roids done, this time with antique diemaker stamps. They are mostly different and the batch is quite small so it's a one per customer sale on them please...they are $80 plus shipping.
One note on the CPM 3v Roids...CPM 3v is a TOOL STEEL. That means that is NOT stain resistant and it will be subject to light rusting. I don't find this a problem because 3v is a bad ass steel with superior lateral strength (prying) and extreme toughness and that is the tradeoff that you make for corrosion resistance. Personally I happen to like the patina of surface rust that will develop over time, just like all the antique tools in my collection, many of which I use on a regular basis and are 100+ years old. But just be aware on the cosmetic front that 3v steel may rust more easily than other steels. ;)
All gone, thank you!
