    Ditto. I'm reliable with payments and such.

    To be honest, you would not be saving much by getting in on the group buy if you only want one. It is $25 shipped on the site for one pair. By the time he orders them, buys a small padded envelope ($00.75), adds Paypal fee's and shipping, the final cost will be around $23.50 - $23.75 for one pair. That's not adding in his time to put together the whole GB.

    If you wanted 2-3, it would be a good deal.

    That's my concern. I'm not well versed on shipping rates, but unless he wants to sell through Jon or cut us a deeper break on a big purchase (and he didn't express interest in either) the savings become negligible. And he didn't express interest in either.

    That's fair, Tower. No worries. After I posted update #56 on this thread, I started having concerns that mirrored QtrHorse's words up above.

    Received mine a couple of days ago. It works well. I would prefer it if it opens a little wider. And the dull housing just doesn't match the shiny tweezers inside. A housing made from SS would have been awesome. I carried it on my key chain for two days. Now it stays in the wallet because I have too many things on key chain already.

    I'm betting I know the mill worker who designed these, he worked as a saw sharpener in a company in Baker City, Oregon.
    He built these from used planer blades used in the mill. His didn't have the hinged cover so were a bit difficult to carry.
    So much so that I don't know where my pair is. I also had him make a flat tip pair for picking up gun parts, little springs and the like.
    I own a pair of Uncle Bills, a pair of this type and a Victorinox Swiss Champ. By far and away the custom pair is the best for sliver use.
    I end up using the Swiss Champ because of not being able to safely carry the customs, the small pliers not the tweezers.
    They are very precise at the tips, what makes them work is that the tips are ground while squeezed together, and are able to pierce under the skin and get a very good purchase.
    Mind you my pair is from a now retired mill worker, not the pair from Bend, Or. But if they are made the same, and they look like it, they are a great design.
    If I can find them I'll post a couple of pics, but I've moved since I saw them last, so don't hold yer breath.
    On a side note, a friend of mine who is a emergency room nurse borrowed mine to use at work, he works as a temp and is in many hospitals in Oregon and Washington.
    The doctors still ask him to borrow those tweezers from having seen them work.

    I ordered one and it arrived incredibly quickly. After trying it out a bit on various tasks I went back and ordered another one for my wife. These are in a class by themselves.

    Just heard about these today, and of course EDCF has a thread on them =) Any reports after further use?

    Am debating whether to get a pair, since I have a pair of Munroe Nanoceps on the way...anyone used both and can share experiences?

    Great to EDC

    I picked one up this last summer and love it. Was able to grab a very small glass shard from my daughter's foot in the first try (she is 19 months!) that there made the purchase worth it for me. They are very solid and sharp, great for digging little buggers out. One set will last you and your next of kin's lifetime I reckon.

    Here is a pic of one of my fav EDC's

    Another example of how well EDCForums helps separate me from my money.

    Now I'll have to get me some o'these...

    They really are worth the money. I bought one for me and one for my wife. As usual, she laughed at them as overkill. Six months later she asked if we could get another pair to keep in the kitchen, since her purse isn't always handy.

    These look awesome! I carry an ALOX SAK, so tweezers were not an option. I may look into getting one of these to make up for it.
