Titanium Termites!

Hi Folks,

Well it's been an interesting couple of weeks. Our spring has been a bit slow in coming so the weather has been all over the place. My time has been consumed with personal projects and also coordinating current tool and accessory projects. A few new ideas have popped into my head as well lately. Sometimes it's good for me to have some days away from the shop, doing totally different things and taking a little break...allows the new ideas time to percolate and mature.

Today I finally have the first round of titanium Termites done! This is an older tool idea which I have now updated with my current look and design elements. The tiny batch of original steel tools had an extra leverage bend but it wasn't practical to do that with this new design. Nevertheless, the new version of the Termite is stunning with the .200" thick textured titanium and color anodizing. The light is very flat again this morning as it has been much of the time in the past week so please forgive the rather washed out colors in some of the pics below, they are actually a lot brighter and more vibrant in person.

The ti Termites will run $75 plus shipping and the link to purchase is below. The batch is fairly large but I have divided it up and will be finishing the plain non anodized ones in a day or two. Thanks as always for visiting folks and here's wishing you a great week ahead!

These are gone for today, thanks so much everyone!

Thanks everyone! :)

There are no lefty specific ones in this batch, they are all stamped the same. Thanks.

Peter Atwood said...

I can't do color choices guys, I just send what I send...thanks!
