Titanium MikroSpikes!

Hi Everyone,

Well, it's a hot and steamy morning here in New England. We have been having crazy amounts of monsoon type thunderstorms here for the past two weeks and it has been very hot as well. The combination has caused a lot of flooding in some areas although I am up in the hills and away from streams so have not been in any danger. But it's been ugly. I think we got 4 inches of rain just yesterday and might get another 1/2 inch tomorrow. At least the slugs are liking it, much to the chagrin of my garden plants.

I've been quite busy in the garden lately, installing a bunch of deer fencing and building up some beds. It's nice to do some work in the shop then take a break and putter around in the garden in between the rain storms. This week I will be harvesting a few veggies and finishing some tool batches at the same time, so it's feeling like a very productive period.

Last week I got steel Mini Superbugs and steel Tiny Tims with pry tips prepped out and they will now get milled. So I should be getting those finished around mid August. In the meantime I have titanium Tombstones on the bench right now and am about halfway into grinding them. Full sized Ti Prybabies are in the wings and will be up next after those. A batch of 3V steel Prybabies awaits further prep steps and those will be coming in the fall. I have a few Zircuti MikroSpikes coming up shortly, and then a larger batch will be on the way in a month or two....and I have some new tumbling equipment so have been playing around with new finishes as well for all my tools.

Today I have a batch of Titanium MikroSpikes for you. These are similar to the previous MikroStiks, but are about 50% larger, so they feel great in the hand and are up for bigger tasks. The MikroSpikes are a great tool for light prying and cleaning duty as well as making an excellent marlin spike for rope and knot work. They have my usual wide variety of crazy stamps and wild contrast anodizing on them, and the finish is buttery smooth. I do have a handful of plain ones also if anyone wants to email me for them.

Titanium MikroSpikes will run $60 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for popping in today and I hope you're staying cool this week!

All gone, thank you!
