Blue Longslides

Howdy All,

Great day here in the northeast, a little cloudy and gloomy but it's very warm, almost t-shirt weather. A good afternoon for a sale.

Upcoming later this week will be G5 Prybabies in the Roid Edition. I just have a little finish work to do on them still. Also coming in a week or so will be a large batch of some flat G5 Prybabies. I played around with the design a little and came up with a nifty wallet version which will make for a perfect stocking stuffer.

Today I have some satin finish titanium LongSlides, anodized a beautiful blue. These are really lovely and I couldn't resist keeping a few for my own collection. They look great on pocket flashlights for example. Which reminds me, I better keep a plain one for my incoming McGizmo Mule with Nichia 119 Hi CRI. :D

Anyway, these are $25 plus shipping and the link is below:

Blue ones are gone, thank you! I will have more bronze ones coming in a week or so as well as some in stainless steel and a few aluminum.

More Pests!

Hi Everyone,

Today I have the second round of steel Pests done. Once again, these are stonewashed S30v steel in my normal thickness, 5/32. A simple, handy and elegant little tool that feels great in the hand and rides easily on a keychain. They are $50 plus shipping. Thanks for stopping by on this fine Saturday!

Second wave is all gone, thank you so much folks!

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!

The Largeness Continues...

Hi Everyone,

Turkey Day is almost here! I'm looking forward to much feasting followed by some interesting football games.

Today I have a batch of the plain titanium Five Ribbed LongSlides done. These unanodized machine satin finished monsters definitely will make a substantial addition to any zipper pull or knife lanyard application. The giant Lanslides run $25 plus shipping. Thank you for stopping in folks, and for the continued support, it is very much appreciated!

Plain satin ones are gone, thank you! I will have more coming up soon, some more in titanium and then also some stainless steel ones, some bronze ones and maybe some others.

More Bookies!

Hi Folks,

The past few days have been rather gloomy but the sun is out today which always lifts my spirits even though it's a little chilly outside...I think I know what is coming soon and it's going to be cold, white and unpleasant. :D

Projects updates: Steel Pests are coming along and should be done in a couple of days. Same with the G5 Roid Prybabies. Also, a couple of other goodies should be on the way for next weekend. There will be lots of stocking stuffer type items for the next few weeks. Roid Keytons are probably not going to happen until January, same with ti Keytons, I just can't get to everything this year.

Today I have more of the steel Bookies done. These are $60 plus shipping and the purchase link is below...hope everyone is heading for a relaxing weekend!

All gone for now, thank you so much! :)

Steel Bookies

Howdy Folks,

Well, things are getting more interesting by the minute around here. Sooooo many projects going on that it will be a miracle if I can even get half of it all done before the end of the year.

So, you wanted more sharps? Sharp Week continues... :D

Today I have the first wave of Bookie desk tools done. These are the 420 stainless steel version of the Bookie tools and they have been hardened to 56-58 Rockwell and then CNC ground on one side. They are razor sharp and will open an envelope or perform other small chores with ease.

I chose 420 for these over something more exotic like S30v because it is a well known and reliable cutlery steel and it is readily available in the very thin thickness that I needed for the bookmark/letter opener project. At .040 in thickness you really don't need anything fancy as the geometry will allow nearly any material to cut like crazy.

The Bookies have been tumbled and then retumbled and then retumbled some more to a gorgeous stonewashed finish. The cutting edge was buffed to a high polish for a nice drag free cutting action and the Atwood logo is etched to distinquish this mid tech tool from my custom projects. They come with a simple plastic slip sheath like the EDK knives and also a lanyard. You can keep the tool in the slip or do what I like to do which is tuck it into an address book or checkbook so that it's handy on your desk.

Since the Bookie is shaving sharp be VERY CAREFUL if you want to use the bottle opener!! I would leave it in the plastic slip sleeve or in the spine of the book if you want to open a beer. Or consider it a design feature and use it as a knife only. ;)

As I said, this is just the first of several waves of these steel Bookies. They are $60 each plus shipping. Thanks as always for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a terrific week.

First Wave is Sold Out but I have more coming mid week. Thank you!

Hi Everyone,

Things are back to normal around here finally and I've been getting back to work in the shop. There is just a TON of stuff happening all at once and this month will be getting busier and busier as the days go on.

SuperSlides, LongSlides....I have had a number of folks ask for a larger Lanslide bead so I decided to make some giant ones. These are the same diameter as the full sized Lanslides but are nearly twice as long. So they measure 1/2" wide by 5/8" long. I decided to stick with the ribbed pattern but added a couple more ribs on to the end. The effect is big and beautiful, especially on these bronze ones which have some heft to them. I'll be making some in titanium pretty soon as well but for now just have the bronze ones ready.

These big guys run $25 each plus shipping. As always, thanks so much for stopping by, it's very much appreciated.

Bronze ones are sold out, thank you!

power is back

We have power finally but no cable. So no internet, no email and no sales until it is restored...
