Plainsies!

Hi Folks,

It's a bit cool and wet this week here in New England. Fall is in full swing though finally and I do believe that this weekend will probably be peak foliage. No doubt many leaf peepers will be driving through our state over the weekend. Sometimes the leaves are more dramatic against a gray sky and other times the sunshine lights up individual trees or branches. It's always a lovely time of year here regardless.

Project updates: Actually not too much to report because I've been busy working on finishing these ti Minis. But I am happy to announce that a Krinkle Textured Metric P15 Mini Prybaby is in the works and will be cut soon. So you can expect to see those in a month or so. I still have not ground the steel Mini Wedgies, the SAE and Metric Tombstones and the rest of the P15 surface ground Roids but those are all also on deck.  

Thanks so much for the enthusiastic response for the anodized P15 Mini Prybabies! As the many beautiful Toolbook photos show, they are quite extraordinary both in texture and in color. I have to tell you that it has not been easy for me to part with them because I sort of wish I could keep them all. :)


Today I have the other half of the Krinkle Textured Mini P15 Prybaby batch done. I'm leaving these plain with no anodizing because I know that many folks want user tools or maybe they just prefer vanilla over maple fudge swirl.... Others might want a plain one so they can do their own anodizing. In any case, this next group has fantastic and varied texture on them so you Raw Bar lovers are really in for a treat.

The plain Krinkle Ti Minis are $70 plus shipping and the link is below. One per customer please on them. Thanks everyone and happy autumn!

Plain ones are gone for now, thanks again everyone!

Problem solved! I no longer have to hang my beautiful anodized P15 from my keys and worry about scratching I can use the plain one. Now I need to go and buy a lottery ticket for being this lucky.

Awesome! Plain finish is my favorite, and the texture is really impressive on this version.

IRT said...

As always, late to the party...I hope Oct is my month! Awesome work peter, I hope to be a proud owner one day!

EndZz said...

OMG the last 2 that were up and i missed them, worst luck ever...

Erik Friedman said...

Love the tool, love this plain version. Always a very satisfied buyer.

These are so awesome. It takes such dumb luck to actually see the purchase link but it's fun just to see what Peter creates. Raw bar = awesome. Congrats to those who scored! Texture on these is INSANE!!

Peter,
You should limit all you sales to 1 per customer.
I will snag a tool someday but no luck yet. That being
said, it is really tough to see the flippers with no use for 3 or 4
of the same item just buy them to sell - it really sucks

Bravo to you when you do this...

Zardo said...

Most items are a limit of 1 - it's rare to see more than that unless it's a bead. Also lately most items are just above cost on ebay. Just keep your eyes open and you usually score for a little above cost.

Pat said...

The only thing I have seen him allow more than one of in the last six months at least, were beads. It won't let you check out with a higher quantity in the shopping cart.

Nicholas said...

Hey Peter,

Great stuff lately, well done! Hope to get in on a sale again one day. What's the name of the little round knot you usually use on your paracord loops? Thanks.

Peter Atwood said...

Thank you!

How are you guys keeping track of this blog? Ive been checking everyday and have missed the last two posts and opportunities to purchase an atwood product. On ebay, the latest products are going for over 150% markups.

HighSpeedTROUBLE said...

Just check it several times a day and you'll eventually catch one. I can almost guarantee you'll never catch a sale if you only check once a day.

EndZz said...

I've been trying for over a year, I check when I can, I even have monitors set up and I still strike out =/, the last 2 were amazing though I'm pretty disappointed.

Carrie Wipp said...

I'm wondering how one could purchase one of your tools?
Thank you! !!

Peter Atwood said...

Carrie, the regular sales are usually over in a very short time but I do have a few extras sometimes. Just email me, lottagear2000-pp at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Snake Man Bone said...

I would jump all over that Carrie. Peter doesn't just say stuff for fun!! If the man say jump I would suggest jumping real high����������

That man (Peter) keeps creating all those unique awesome pieces.

The colours, the texture, everything !

I had the privilege a while back to get one of his works directly from him and since then everyone i meet keeps asking about "that thing that is hanging from my key-car-chain" .

Thanx a lot Peter & and keep up your GREAT work man!
