They aren't cheap, but is quality ever cheap?

I'll let Mike chime in with the SRP for these, I wouldn't want to post an incorrect price, he has different options available. Materials, coatings, etc.

I need to finish cataloging the rest of my cartridges one of theses days....

It was noted earlier, in this thread, that they differed in price based on finish and options.

Perhaps the more prudent approach would be to send a PM to Mike if you're interested.

Well there is a reason that I did not put a for sale thread up here. The majority of them were sold long before They were finished. I MAY be able to come up with one of each material if I go through all the prototypes and BS ones and find a good one. We have like 45 that are just prototypes so I literally have prototypes all over my house and with numerous friends that have been beating on them for about 4 months now.

As it has been asked, these are all CNC machined from Raw material. Nothing is cast. Here is the break down.


Aluminum Cerakoted with EMPTY 1.5x5 mm tritium slots -$99
Colors available will be Gun metal grey and Armour Black.

There will be a small run (1 to 2 per color) of Aluminum cerakoted keychains that will have 2x12 mm slots and will come with your choice of either blue or green tritium installed with NAO60. These will be $199 each.

Copper Tellurium with EMPTY 1.5x5 mm tritium slots -$160

There will be a small run of CuTe keychains that will have 2x12 mm slots and will come with your choice of either blue or green tritium installed with NAO60. These will be $260 each.

Titanium with EMPTY 1.5x5 mm tritium slots -$199

There will be a small run of Titanium keychains that will have 2x12 mm slots and will come with your choice of either blue or green tritium installed with NAO60. These will be $299 each.

Ohh, yea. Kidneys bring big money on the black market here in the Chi. Now if you can do a Liver I may be able to get you 2 carabiners.

Thanks man. Yea, the copper is what started it for me. As you can see from my personal keys/EDC im a copper fan. I love the way it ages. I guess thats why I like things like leather and quality denim. I love watching well made things age with HARD use. Unfortunately after looking and not finding much in the copper realm, I said F it and decided to design my own. Then of course I took it a step further and went with CuTe.

Just sayin... I broke the biner I've had for a month. I really liked it. Mike is fixing it.

I seriously keep breaking things. I didn't even hard-use it, like I did with other tools like my gun I just broke, my shoes I broke, my eye protection I broke last year (my kids broke).. I've lost track.

Things in general are just made by mfg's for rich people or people who don't hard-use their gear. With my gun, even though I shot over a thousand rounds of +P+ out of it, it should not have broke. Ok, maybe that might have been my fault.

It's no wonder that Mike had to make his own slick. I've seen, and other shooters that have been shooting for much longer have, so many things that I would love to design and make, because the fudd or tactical way it was approached is just idiotic. Most of these products have already been prototyped and made by other shooters-turned-mfg's. But there are still some that are most likely about to come out, or I'll start designing them.

Anyway, I didn't even hard-use my biner. Sigh. Kudos to Mike.
