Roid Keytons

Hi Everyone,

It's rainy and chilly here today, good day to stay inside and finish up some tools.

Today I have the first wave of S30v Roid Keytons ready to go. These are .210" thick so they are very close to 1/4", quite massive. These are the first G2 Keyton design so that tells you how long they have been sitting around before I finally got into working on the batch...over a year in fact! But done they finally are and all the extra time and care that I gave them shows in the buttery smooth final finish.

This is a ONE PER CUSTOMER sale please as the batch is not nearly as large as I wish it was. So, they will run $70 plus shipping and the link as always is DIRECTLY above the picture below. If you see the words SOLD OUT instead of the link that means that I took the link out and the sale is over. I know the old timers all know this but I get dozens of emails every week asking where the link is. Anyway, have a great weekend folks and thanks for stopping in.

Roid Keytons are Sold Out, thank you!

Three Rib Brass Lanslides

Hi Folks,

It's the first day of fall here in New England and the weather is suddenly a bit cooler. The leaves are barely showing any color yet but I'm sure in another week or two that will all change. It's a good time to get some work done right now though.

So, this weekend I have some brass Lanslide beads finished. These are the full sized 1/2" diameter ones in the Three Rib design. They have a great heft to them and are perfect to tie onto tools, knives, flashlights and zipper pulls. They are the usual $15 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend!

All gone for now, thank you so much everyone!

Old Yeller

Hi Folks,

Sorry for the long radio silence. I've been battling a persistent cold/flu that had me laid up for a few days and I'm still trying to shake the last of it. Then, this past week I was busy grinding, tumbling and processing parts for literally the entire week. The upside of all this is that I finally got those long overdue S30v Roid Keytons off to heat treat on Saturday. The rest of the 3V Semi Roid G5 Prybabies went to heat treat today. So, in about two weeks or so I will have TONS of heavy duty steel tools.

There are some other cool things in the works as well. It's still too early to talk about a couple of the projects but I can mention one that is a definite go and is already underway...remember how on my G5 Prybaby cards it says "made of steel or titanium"? Well, I finally got around to doing a batch of titanium Prybabies! So those will be coming in around a month or so. I'm very excited about them and have wanted to make some for quite a while as it is one of my all time personal favorite designs.  

In the meantime I also worked on the rest of the titanium G2 Keytons over the weekend. Today I have a batch of them done with stonewashed finish and deep gold anodizing. They run $65 plus shipping and the link is below...thanks for your never ending patience and interest, much appreciated!

Gold Ti Keytons are Sold Out, thank you!
