G3 Mini Keytons

Hi Everyone,

Happy Easter Weekend! It's supposed to be lovely here, in the 60's and sunny. Looking forward to it.

Well, today at long last, I have the first wave of G3 Mini Keytons done. These are made of CPM 3v tool steel hardened to 58-60 Rockwell. The stock is 5/32 thick so they are plenty beefy yet remain very compact. As you can see, the footprint of the Minis is slightly smaller than the original Roid Keytons and the overall length is 2.7 inches. Although the wrench sizes are not super useful (1/4, 5/16 and 3/8) they are the sizes that fit in the small space and they look cool too. :)

The 3v tool steel is super tough material and very scratch resistant especially with this finish. Give them a little oil now and then and they should stay looking like new on your keys for many years.
 
The Mini Keytons are going to run $60 plus shipping and the purchase link is below. The batch is not very big so it will be one per customer on them please. I am looking into making a second batch and perhaps a couple of variation designs later this year so I'm sure this isn't the end of them.

Have a great weekend everyone and thank you as always!

Sold out for now, thank you again everyone!

So do i need to sign up to anything to find out when more items go on sale or does everyone just check the blog and see when your making them next ?
I cant find or see the link below you mention, is that because they are all sold out and you have recovered the link ?
