    I would be interested in a couple of these when they're ready. I like the 2 1/2" with the rounded corners. Let us know when they're ready.

    This!!! Sharp 90's on one of the edges would be great! If they were about 3/16ths thick, they'd work with the "Bic lever" style of bottle opening without chewing up your fingers.

    Grrr! This place is always suggesting new ways to keep my wallet breeding moths!

    Though it would probably be too large to use as a keyring, one that you could use to strike a ferro rod that also has a concave in the center to use as a "bearing block" or used to catch magnesium shavings? Just a thought.

    Lisa, if you could make a striker in the shape of a tomahawk head that is small enough to wear on a leather strap like a necklace you'd sell a ton.

    It doesn't need one.

    Lisa's striker bars are similar in functional design to other pocket prybars (like Jens Anso's PryBar12 and various Atwoods) .... which can open effectively open bottles without a designated opener.

    A designated bottle opener just adds unnecessary production time and costs ... and adds unnecessary edges to a tool that complicates snagging and pocket wear.

    Lots of people wonder if you can do any prying at all with such hard and "brittle" steel..Well, yes and NO..With your typical strikers, shaped as they are Id say absolutly not...Now with a solid small bar of say 5/32" or espically 3/16" then some light prying then slightly yes..Like a popping a bottle cap..I have intentionally dropped my tomahawk strikers from 4'-5' up directly on the face of an anvil with no damage at all..Even though they are dead hard...Most Id say run 65-66 rc..The Parks 50 we use it very nearly as fast as water but not nearly as violent..It gets steel under the curve very fast but then eases off and isnt as stressfull on the steel as water..
    Phillip talked with ABS Mastersmith Kevin Cashen about this online several times so all the props goes to him for most of our heat treating recipes..espically the ones for L6 and 52100..If you want to learn a lot about heat treating read anything Kevin Cashen has to say on the subject..He is recognized across the business as one of the best in this field..

    Same here, Lisa.

    I'd like one as well. Possibly 2. Depends on your final options in styles and structures.
