Your first option, Captain Hook, was much more convincing than for copper clip with a window more for titanium and other advanced materials. Copper is soft enough to turn the plot with holes perpendicular to and be fine. >:D

Beautiful work Gamble :tu: I like seeing how your work continues to evolve with each step forward. How long have you been pursuing this project if I may ask?

Hey J, thanks!  I think its been about 6 months since I made that first little hanger for the P7.  ...and about 4 or 5 since I made that first copper proto of what would become the GearPull.  But I've been a member at edcf since 06...so I've had a lot of time to think about edc in general, and all that "research" factored in :D

Cool! So, what's the next step? More prototype testing, or are you ready to go into production?

Author let me make it idea for me? I want to spend 15 minutes to work. Silver spoon, cut, drill holes, and bend clip.
:drool: :drool:

I have a set of the exact same spoons, bought 20 years ago from repratriated ex-CCCP Greeks. I wouldn't like to ruin it but I am interested to see what you'll make out of this.

These look great, I like the concept. 

I know you do Brass, Copper and Titanium, but do you make just a steel version?
If you mentioned it here sorry if I missed it, where do I go about getting my hands om one?

Thanks dudes!

Mtngoat: Thanks!  No steel at this time but I'm looking into a stainless version; like a preemptive knockoff!  The current models will be for sale via http://www.GambleMade.com at some point in Nov. or Dec more likely.

Syph: yes all waterjet cut.  Did you know Kickstarter is now open to Canadian creators?  If you want info on the waterjet guys I used just let me know via PM.  I'm pretty sure you would do really well with a ti sak mod project.  KS is a great platform and you would reach all kinds of new clients.

Oh really, last I checked it was only UK and US.  They dont allow knife projects from what I remember though.

syph you are right,   totally forgot.  How about a bladeless option?  then you could sell the blade as an add on via a website off of KS

well my hope for those is overseas manufacturing which would mean a totally different price point.  but honestly I have no idea if/how/when

Those are ridiculously gorgeous pieces. I wish I found this earlier, I'd have backed it in a second.

Or if you found us sooner, maybe you could have won one free. :D We had a few giveaways for these, courtesy of Gamble. :hatsoff:

I can NOT wait to get my Ti version and that little tri-piece thingy too!


I have a huge key for my new Skinth-Mobile and it needs a carry solution.


Here is a close up of a my bending jig.




That bending jig is what I've been thinking of making for years now and I couldn't figure out how to roll it without scratching. I suppose the contacting rotates? I was thinking of making one with the bar lined with HDPE or polypro to make it scratch free.

Why stop now?

 I left the piece of rubber out of the pic because it made the whole assembly less photogenic, but I sandwich one between the surface of the GP and the rod that does the bending, otherwise they would all be badly scratched.  The stationary rod for the inner part of the bend is not a concern because it doesn't move across the surface of the metal.  The other option would be to use a nylon sleeve/washer with a smaller diameter steel rod...but ultimately the closed cell rubber (1/8") is the least marring.

This jig is pretty hack and ugly but i was happy to find a less strenuous way to do all these consistently.  I even bought 2 "universal benders" when I started to get nervous my own jig wouldn't hold up to the volume.
Neither worked in the end because they were not adjustable enough.  I would stay away from all commercial benders in the 100-300$ range for this kind of small work.

The best part is I used Gearpulls to make the jig.  see the arms of the bender? those are butchered GP's
