3V Ghosts!

Hi Folks,

It's been quite rainy and cool here in New England lately which is fine by me. I'm not in a big hurry to see the heat and humidity which is surely on the way any day now. Still, after this long winter and cold spring I can't help but wonder if this will be an unusually cool summer ahead.

Things have been a bit slow lately but I am steadily getting through various projects. I still have not really gotten started on the Shutterbug tools but I'll be working on them shortly. Titanium Atwrenches are getting closer and will probably be coming along before the Shutterbugs. I have a few new drawings that I am mulling over too so if I ever get my lazy butt in gear lots of interesting items are on the way this summer!    

Today I have some of the CPM 3v Ghosts finished. These are identical to the G2 Ghosts that I released last year except for the uber tough material. How can you tell them apart? Well, these are stamped "3V" right on the back. They are the usual hefty 5/32" in thickness and have a great working stonewashed finish.

The Ghosts will run $60 plus shipping and the batch is not huge. As I often do, I'll make this sale one per customer so that more people will get a chance at them. The purchase link is below....have a great week everyone and as always, thank you for stopping by!

Ghosts are sold out for now, thank you!

Semi Roid Atwrenches

Hi Everyone,

Well it's been pretty quiet around here lately hasn't it? I've been busy working on various projects and also took some time off for a brief vacation. But I'm back for a bit now and am spending some serious time in the shop this week and next.

I still haven't gotten started on those Shutterbugs but they are on the bench finally and next in line for the grinder. CPM 3v Ghosts will be back from heat treat by early next week. And I have some 5/32 titanium Atwrenches in progress for early June as well as a few more Terminator beads. At least one other project will be coming also in this near time frame. Tipplers are delayed probably until the end of summer or early fall due to lack of machine time. So there is lots of stuff on the way in the coming few weeks for sure.

Today I have a batch of CPM 3v Semi Roid Atwrenches done. These are just shy of 3/16 in thickness so are a little thicker than I normally make. They are quite substantial and feel very solid in the hand without being ridiculously heavy.  I changed up the grip pattern on this batch to further differentiate these from earlier runs of Atwrench tools.

I had a little fun with the grinds on these and in addition to my usual accent grinds on the main pry bevel I mixed it up and did several different new versions. I will be sending them out in no particular order so there is no choice of grinds but they are all nice and there are at least 4 different main versions with several other minor variations mixed in as well. Fun stuff!

Anyway, the 3v Atwrenches will be $70 plus shipping. It's a small batch so one per customer on them please. The link to purchase is below. Thanks for stopping in and I hope everyone is having a great spring!

Sold Out! Thanks again everyone!
