Titanium TightWads

Happy Spring Everyone! It really is nice to be able to say that, and I am looking forward to some warmer days ahead. Of course, Winter has a few ideas about that and is sending us another week of cooler weather, and maybe another inch or two of snow, just to remind us of our follies...

I continue to plug away at the projects in the shop. Currently I'm going through a bunch of these TightWads from several years ago. They are slow going as the broad flat shape does not interact well with tumblers, so I can only do a few a time and have to constantly babysit them or they all bunch up in a clump and rub together making marks which then have to be further tumbled away to even everything out. Tedious, hehe!

These updated TightWads feature various hex openings, O2 wrench, cap lifter and enhanced side grips. They are made of .060 titanium, so thin enough to be very lightweight, but plenty thick enough to be totally rigid and strong. Cash on one side, cards and ID on the other, or however you want to organize for a light minimalist wallet carry. These have a plain tumbled finish which I believe will wear the best in a hostile environment such as a pants stamps because they are too thin to stamp effectively. Getting color anodizing to come out evenly is difficult with something this large, plus anodized colors will not wear well in a pocket and they fingerprint with oils and grime too easily.

I will send these with an extra band as well. These take a standard Youth Size wrist band, so you can use any commercial Youth Size band that is available or have personalized ones made very easily. And yes, I do have some lefties! ;)

Plain Titanium TightWads will run $75 plus shipping and the link is below. Thanks for popping in and have a great weekend ahead!

All gone for now, thank you so much! I will have yet another version of these coming up at some point soon.
