Bronze Terminators

Good Morning and Happy Weekend,

It's sunny and bright today, spring is definitely on the way now, thank goodness! And the clocks have changed last night, another excellent sign that soon the icy grip of winter will be just a memory. Lastly, spring training is in full swing and regardless of whether the Red Sox win or lose I'm looking forward to another great baseball season ahead.

Today I have some fabulous bronze Terminators on black cord. These are made from silicon bronze, alloy #655, which is 97% copper with 2.8% silicon and then traces of a number of other metals to make up the remainder of ingredients. This alloy is very strong, nearly as strong as steel, with good corrosion resistance and it is used primarily in the marine industries and for industrial pump applications. It looks wonderful with a light golden color, quite shiny and bright and I think because of the relative hardness compared to tellurium copper for instance, that it might be fairly tarnish resistant. It will be very interesting to see how it looks over time.

So the bronze Terminators will be $25 each plus shipping and once again, limit of two per customer. The link is below....have a wonderful rest of the weekend everyone.

Sold Out, thank you!

Those bronze ones look great! I am looking forward to putting them on my saltwater fishing gear bag this spring. It won't be long until the stripers and blues return to our waters here in MA. Fish On!

Thanks for the kind words everyone! The ti ones will start running later this week so the first ones probably will be done early next week now.
