Adventures in Micro Manufacturing with Knife and Tool Maker Peter Atwood
Already got one. Bring on the sharps! =)
Glad I could scoop one of these. Love raw bar.
Mean Looking Wrunt!
Wow. Somehow I got through...can't wait for my first Atwood. Thanks Peter!
Damn! gone in 60 seconds
Any ideas on when the next batch of Sporkula's will be ready? I've been dying to get one of those beauties!
Ahhh! I missed this batch as well. Oh well! Hopefully the next release will be some anodized Wrunts!
I like the Wrunt! Just missed the sale today. Awesome design, Peter! Maybe I will catch the next sale. Have a good week.
those are nice and all...but waiting on the next batch of Sporkula's.
Got my Wrunt today from the first batch. They do not disapoint. Looks cool, great form factor, and passed the beer opening test with flying colors. Just in case I will continue my research... it wouldn't be very scientific without a few hundred repetitions! :-) Thanks Peter!!
Timing is in fact everything. Missed on the wrunts- shame because they looked really sweet.
And they ARE sweet! Perfect size, like a Gen 1 mini Keyton
Missed it again! I'm always on the road when tools are posted. Grrr.
Peters tools are like a mirage, just when catch a tantalizing glimpse its already gone... Next time!
Aw schucks. I keep missing out. I really like the design of the wrunt. If anyone has a spare wrunt they'd like to part with i'd appreciate it.
Hey Peter. I have 5 of your tools now and I love 'em and carry one every day, usually a G3 Prybaby or newer G2 Keyton in steel or Ti. They are super. One suggestion/question I have for the Keyton/Pest type tools, and now as I see, the Wrunts, is to revisit the cap lifter design. I don't know if I am the only one, but I use them to pop bottles fairly often, and almost anytime I do, I find that they slip off the cap too easily compared to the Prybaby. Maybe it's a function of depth or angle of the slot. Holding the Keyton in a "kitchen knife" type grip with my index finger in the curved bottom, the Keyton will often slip off the cap without fully removing it, several times sending my index finger second knuckle into the sharp crimps in the cap and taking a nice chunk out of it. I learned knuckles bleed a lot. How do you guys do this more successfully than I do? I want the beer without the blood. ;)
Well I haven't bled too much but I do have to use the Keyton/Pest at least twice in order to take the bottle cap off. I haven't had the pleasure of using the Prybaby but I would also assume it has to do with the depth of the slot for the cap itself. I'll be eager to try the Wrunt though!
Designs like the pest, brewdriver, keyton, and im pretty sure this new wrunt are apparently two shot caplifters, so they need two tries to open a cap. Peter may i suggest trying to design more bottle openers with one shot designs like the prybaby, i know it maybe is a design aesthetic thing but whenever someone asks me about my tool and i tell them how much it costs and they see later how many times it takes me to open a bottle you can see it in there expression "you really paid that much for that". Anywho i always end up carrying my prybaby so i dont run into that problem
I always get the lid off in one with my keyton
I personally like the way the rounded slot of the Pest "fits" onto the bottlecap better than the hexagonal opening of the Poltergeist. Peter varies the designs, because the hexagonal opening serves a second purpose; wrench.
