Black Widow Longslides

Howdy All,

The weatherman was finally right this week, it's snowing like crazy this afternoon. Luckily I took pictures of these yesterday while it nice out...

Today I have the rest of the black hard anodized Aluminum Longslide beads done. These are on a gorgeous new cord pattern from Supply Captain called Black Widow although I kinda think Cherry Bomb would have worked too...or maybe Maine Hunting Shirt even though it's not as catchy. Hehe...:D

Anyhow, the Black Widow Longslides are $25 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for stopping by today and stay warm!

Black Widows are gone, thank you so much folks!

Left Handed Pests

Hello Everyone,

Well all good things must come to an end and the New England winter is no exception. Now, we've been lucky to have had a very mild winter so far this year but it appears we will not be able to escape completely unscathed as a storm is supposed to hit tomorrow and give us up to a foot of that dreadful white stuff. Since it's not supposed to start until tomorrow afternoon I have ample time to get to the post office in the it's a good night for a sale.

In other news, more Bigshots are coming in the next few days as well as more anodized aluminum Longslides. Some steel tools are going to be ready to start grinding in the next week or so. The rest of the ti Pests and Wedgies should be ready to go in the next couple of days. Some new drawings have been happening and events are being set in motion for several really interesting batches of items such as the Wrunt. It's going to be one hell of a spring coming up if I can just keep my nose to the grindstone. Maybe I'll take some juggling lessons, that might help.

So today I have a small batch of tools for my lefthanded friends. These left handed titanium Pests have a plain stonewashed finish and will run $65 plus shipping, the purchase link is below. The batch is small so I'm going to make it one per customer please. As always, I'm hoping you all are having a great week!

LH Pests are gone, thank you!

Plain 3 Rib Lanslides

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe this winter! While I am not missing the snow I just can't get over how warm it has been, it's quite bizarre. There is almost no snow here right now and it's been great weather for taking walks.

I'm slowly working on stuff here these past few days and will have some more tool sales very soon. I will have more anodized aluminum 5 rib Longslides coming up pretty soon as well so stay tuned for those. In the meantime I managed to get some more of the smaller ones done...these are satin finished full sized 3 rib Lanslides in titanium. They run the usual $15 each plus shipping. Thank you as always for visiting Planet Pocket Tool!

All gone, thank you so much!

Stormy Blue Pests

Hey Folks,

Happy Weekend!

Well, today I got a few more ti pests done...these are anodized a new shade of blue that I'm calling Stormy Blue. It's hard to capture in photos but it's kind of a metallic looking cross between UV, blue, green, teal, sea foam and aquamarine all mixed up. It's a higher voltage color in between UV and green on the spectrum. Rather nice color that I will be using again for sure on future tools. Anyway, I just have a couple dozen of these finished for now and they are $65 plus shipping. Thanks for checking in and have a great weekend. ;)

All gone, thank you!

Apparently this one belongs to the cat now:

Golden Pests

Hey Folks,

How's it going? Hope everyone is having a terrific week. I'm rolling along here and in the mood to get some stuff done so that's good news as far as sales are concerned.

Today I have some titanium Pests finished. These are the same design as earlier releases and the thickness is 5/32 so they are quite hefty. I have given these many hours of tumbling so the edges are nicely softened and the finish is exactly what I was looking for on them. This group is anodized a deep rich golden color which my photo did not quite catch...they are darker in real life than the photo conveys. I have several waves of these coming and will do some other colors as well in the next batches.

Golden Pests are $65 plus shipping. Thanks once again for stopping in!

Gold Pests are all gone, thank you!

Howdy Folks,

I'm slowly working on various projects and more tools should be on the way in the next day or two. I have another round of titanium Pests coming up in two new colors and more Wedgies are tumbling right now as I type this.

In the meantime, I have completed a bunch more of the stainless steel Bigshots. These heavy weights are some of the prettiest so far, the quality of the turning is absolutely superb. Bigshots run $75 each plus shipping and I set the sale up for maximum of two per customer. If you want more than two just email me and we can work out the shipping arrangements. Thanks for stopping by on this fine Wednesday afternoon, always appreciated!

Stainless are gone for now but more coming, thank you!

Matte Blue Keytons

Hi Everyone,

It's cold and breezy today so not really the best weather for enjoying outdoor activities... in light of that I figured it might be a good day to sit down with a cup of hot coffee and have a sale.

Today I have more of the ti Keytons done. These are matte finished and are anodized a deep rich blue. A gray/blue lanyard completes the monochromatic and subdued look of the package. These are very nice indeed.

The matte blue Keytons run $65 plus shipping. Thanks for stopping in today and hope your weekend is going great!

Blue ones are gone, thank you!

Plain Ti Wedgies

Hi Everyone,

It has taken me a while to get these G2 Wedgies done. Funny how sometimes the projects that are supposed to be quick and relatively easy can often turn into never ending battles. I thought I'd be done with these several weeks ago which is why I sold a few of the first test pieces to folks who emailed looking for new stuff. And of course one person immediately took advantage of that to put one up on Ebay before I even had a chance to finish the bulk of the batch and post a Wedgie sale. That generated a lot of trouble for me and dozens of emails from upset fans and so from now on I will try to avoid that and not release stuff until the batches are actually completed.

Anyway, I'm still only halfway done with the Wedgies and need to finish up the rest of the batch but I have a small number of them ready today. These are plain stonewashed with no anodizing. The ti Wedgies measure 4 inches long by 1/2" wide and are well over 1/4" in thickness so they are massive little blocks of titanium. In addition, titanium plate this thick is also sometimes textured so I was delighted to see that these have a light pebbly Raw Bar finish. The lanyard opening on these doubles as an O2 wrench.

Are they tough? Well, talk about overkill...I used a 2 lb hammer to nail one deep into a wooden 2x4 and there was no damage whatsoever besides a slightly flattened mark on the end where the hammer had struck it. Good stuff. :)

The Wedgies run $60 plus shipping. This will be a one per customer sale because I only have a couple dozen completed so far but I wanted to get some out there as soon as possible. More will be coming in the next few days. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

All gone, thank you!

Rainbow Stamped Keytons

Hi Everyone,

Well this is going to be a big party weekend here in New England for obvious reasons so I figured maybe I could squeeze one more sale in before all my productivity goes completely down the drain. Naturally I'm rooting for the Patriots but I think it's going to be a very hard fought contest and the Giants are a damned good football club so we'll see what happens. It will be enjoyable no matter the outcome.

Anyhow, today I have more ti Keytons done. These have my antique diemaker stamps on them. They are stonewashed and feature bright rainbow anodizing. These run $70 each plus shipping. The batch is a bit small so I'll make this a one per customer sale please. I do have more ti Keytons coming after this and another big batch will be underway very soon so many more of these are coming later this winter.

All Gone, thank you!
