Yes, it has been a while, but it has been worth the wait. The Monkey King has arrived! An excellent addition to your knife handles. The Monkey King will protect your knives with all his power and might!
Coming in right at 6.5" and 3.2oz is my new cast bronze and stainless steel skull spike. Just like the little skull pick, the bronze skull is mechanically attached using a threaded connection. Would make a great ice-pick, or self defense weapon.
Been a while, and I have something to show for it.
The Torpedo Bottle Opener.
A great addition to your key chain that will open thousands of bottles and still look like it did the day you purchased it. The overall length is right at 2.4" (60mm), and the width is just under 1/2" (10mm). These weigh in at 1 ounce (27.9 grams). The material is 316L Stainless Steel with a high gloss finish. As with all my products these are made to last a lifetime if not many lifetimes.
Check out the third iteration of chopsticks. These are little bit smaller than my previous two designs at about 200mm (7-1/2"). This set of chopsticks pictured was anodized with the intent to try to pull in almost all of the range of colors that is possible with anodizing.
Did something a little different this time. These toothpick are anodized using a small brush with a lether tipp dipped in anodizing solution and then randomly applied at different voltages across the surface resulting in pretty amazing variations. You can get these over at my Ebay listed under my selling name of Caratworx
Will be at the 7th annual Lehigh Valley Knife Show in Easton, PA on September 28 and 29, 2013.
Stop by and say Hi!
Am working on some Brass Bottle Openers called "El Hombre". The design is from WeaponCollector...Many Thanks!!!. These are 1/4" thick 464 Brass. The overall length is 3-1/4", with a width of 1-1/2". They weigh in at 3.5 ounces, right under a 1/4 pound.464 Brass is also known as naval brass and is used in marine applications due to its classic high strength and corrosion resistance. As with all my products, this is made to last generations. The title El Hombre is because it reminds me of those enormous Botero sculptures. I will have these in the store for preorder. My expectation is to have them out Sunday, August 11.
Was out messing around with some silver nitrate the other weekend and testing the development of a silver colored patina. The silver nitrate solution is applied to the hot metal. It seems best to use a weak solution, and apply multiple layers until the desired patina is developed.
Finished up some custom beads for the legendary Busse Knives out of Ohio. The Boar is the mascot for the Busse Combat Knife Company, and the Rat is the mascot for their Swamp Rat Knife Works. The only way you might get one of these is showing up at the Blade Show this weekend in Atlanta and visiting the Busse team. You may want to get there on the first day. If you don't own a Busse Knife, you are missing out a fine piece of American craftsmanship.
Solid Brass - CNC made. These will fit well on your larger knives and machetes at 12mmx15mm and weighing in at 13 grams. Check them out over at the store !!
