Matte Brass Whistles

Good Morning and Happy Weekend! I've had these whistles kicking around the shop for a year or more and just couldn't seem to get around to finishing them. Anyway, I was getting tired of looking at them sitting on the shelf so I decided it's time to finish them up and move them on out. As I was putting them together I decided to try a little experiment and give them a light bead blast and I really like the resulting matte finish, something a little different and they should patina very nicely over time. They are on bead chain. This is a very small batch so it will be one per customer on them please and they will run $45 plus shipping. SOLD OUT, thank you again folks! Show here on a background of flat S30v Wrunts... they will be coming up later next week! :)

That's the first morning sale since I started watching. just when I thought I had a pattern figured out Peter switches things up to keep us on our toes. I hope that wasn't the last batch of whistles.

That was obviously an east coast special ;D
But then Peter seems to be from that neck of the woods! And they look darn nice!
Congrats to all the early birds, you got the worm that goes "tweet, tweet, tweet"

Getting stoked about this score. I've been liking brass the more I see it on ToolBook.

Forrest Ferguson said...

Love your items, I am looking forward to getting something soon, just never seem to catch them in time. Quick question how does the whistle sound?

Peter Atwood said...

Thank you!

Amanda, the whistles are very loud. ;)

AmandaS said...

Loud is GOOOOOD! :) Now if I can only catch one!
Thank you!

Rick said...

Are the flat Wrunts still expected next week? :)

Peter Atwood said...

I'm not sure yet Rick. When I get to them I guess. Too many projects all demanding my attention at once and very hot these past couple of days so it's hard to get as much done as I want to.

Rick said...

Thanks for the response. I figured when you mentioned grinding them they might be a bit longer. I'm looking forward to them. :)

I got the whistle and it is superb. Great work of art.

promark420 said...

A week in, and it's already developing a nice patina. :-)

uneekwahn said...

Got my whistle, very happy with it! :)
