Need to give Peter some more love: based totally on a random email, not only did he hook me up with a Crypto he still had in the shop, but I sent him money at 7am. By 9am, the Crypto is already en route to me, and USPS says it will be here Monday. I should point out too that, when I was really into collecting his stuff last year, I got at least five pieces form him this way.
I would love to see a pic of a real fucked up beaten to shit atwood for once
It's extremely difficult to fuck them up. At least if you have steel versions, which is all I carry for use. They're small hand tools, anything that fucks them up that bad is liable to fuck your fingers up as well. Unless you're into etching (maybe grinding) as a hobby, you can fuck them up intentionally.
I've had mine run over by a forklift, no damage. Use it at work every day, minor scratches that can be polished out. Most of the 'blemishes' that they have are from before heat treating it looks like.
Sure you've seen these before. But if I torque it enough to do damage it's likely to create a projectile.
Same prybaby. I actually use it more at my current job. Just don't leave it in a machine that's powered on. Would be worse than a monkey wrench.
Hobbies: general gooberniss.. Favorite Movies: Anything Quentin Tarantino. Favorite Liquor: Hard Cider Jack Daniels Favorite EDC Gear Companies: SureFire Luminox Wilson Combat Zero Tolerance Benchmade
I think I want a simple Pest for my keychain, just to bling it up and pop an occasional beer. Maybe a Prybaby G4 one day. I could actually buy any of these now that the market is in the slump, it's just that I'm afraid that I'll start there and end up with 100$ lanterns and 200$ knucks.
PS. no offense to anyone or anything but Peter Atwood is MILES above Horton in terms of design and usefulness (as far as I can tell, never having handled an Atwood) and probably fit and finish. To each their own
Here is my current collection. I want a ruler and wildcard, but those are pretty far away from being purchased.
