Zirconium KingPins!

Hi Folks,

Happy Wednesday to you all! Hope your week is going well...

Yup, believe it or not, I'm back for the second day in a row with another sale. The slow periods over the past few months were well spent I can assure you, and even though things have been somewhat quiet for long stretches I have been toiling away daily on various projects. So I am hoping that all that preparation and groundwork will set us up for a very busy fall season as I set out to finish many of these projects which I have started and are in various stages of completion. That's the plan anyway, haha.

Well today I have the next wave of KingPins ready to go. I am still in the middle of hand grinding all the pins, so as I continue to pick away at those I will have a few more of these zirconium ones coming, as well as the copper and titanium versions. But for now I have a good bunch of these done in Zr... so, just enough for a decent sale. A few dozen more unmounted Zr heads remain however which I will finish up as soon as I can get to them.

Now then, I have spent a lot of time on these Zr KingPins and I'm pleased with the results so far with this batch. They're a bit tricky to grind but I have a good system figured out for them now and these have a decent amount of taper on the pins. I think you will be pleased as well with the final product.

The Zr KingPins have a heat colored 1/2 diameter head with my familiar 5 flute design. The 5 flute shape is easy to grip and manipulate and provides an excellent anti roll effect, so this tool will stay put when you lay it down! The tapered pins themselves are hardened steel and are 1/8 inch in diameter so quite stout. The KingPins are just under 3 inches in overall length, just about 3 inches total with the included vinyl slip sheath. The simple tubing sheath makes these quite safe to carry in a pocket and is of course easily replaceable. A great tool for all sorts of delicate picking, scraping, poking, sorting and mixing tasks.

The Zr KingPins will run $85 plus shipping and it's a one per customer sale on them for now as the batch is not enormous. If you really need more than one though, just let me know via email and I can hook you up as more will be coming down the road. Thanks for stopping in today folks and stay safe out there!

These are gone for today, thank you so much everyone!
