    Titanium Rambler with titanium pins, phosphor bronze washers, a tritium slot on both sides and 400 grit hand rubbed finish. The tritium vials will be installed by the customer.

    Awesome work as always. I'm going to break down eventually and get you to do a super tinker for me sometime. Question, can you build a super tinker with an in-line phillips?

    I have found that with a spacer like the small blade has next to it (which I remake in titanium) the inline phillips can replace the can opener perfectly making the opener layer into a screwdriver layer. I find that I have to deal with Phillips screws everywhere but only cans where I have other options for a can opener so it makes sense to me. Then you can have a corkscrew which I also find useless so I'm going to start making a double ended Phillips and straight ti handled micro driver to go inside it.

    Awesome! I have a few strips of stingray skin that I'm going to ship with your order just because I want to see what you do with it.

    Great work, BM. You turned a decent knife into a spectacular one.

    Here's an update on this piece. I received it a few days ago and was able to get the trits in!

    Overall I love the piece and would definitely recommend! There aren't many makers out there who can craft titanium exactly how you want it for a reasonable price

    Thanks! I finally got my setup just how I like it ;)

    The coupler is from here: http://www.edcknives.com/categories/Accessories/Key-Rings-and-Related-Gear/
    They very rarely pop up for sale so if you see one you have to grab it. Overall it works really well and without any hint of coming apart when you don't want it to. It can also be operated one handed which makes taking my keys in and out of my pocket really easy even with the groceries ;)

    Great find! I hadn't seen those before. A bit out of my price range for now, but maybe someday :)
