LARGE Titanium CandyCan
I have a bunch of interesting stuff for you today.
Some behind-the-scenes as well as a Limited Edition product.
First up, more on making the Titanium Wallet:
More Making Of The TiWallet™
In the last blog post I showed you some photos of the making of the TiWallet™.
I said I would get a video out - but have not yet made that video (it is coming soon though). Truthfully, I've been tweaking the wallet as we get into "full production mode" on the cnc mill ...and hence little time spent on filming.
The TiWallet™ project (well, a whole load of pre-orders) are, shamefully I might add, LATE!
We are about to start shipping - but we will not get all the titanium wallets shipped in March as I had hoped. We're going as fast as we can without compromising (i.e. making each wallet as flawless as I can).
Here's the first few off the cnc - but before any surface finishing has been done:
Limited Edition - "Blast" Flixx™ Knife
I offered a limited BLACK Flixx™ knife here a couple of days ago - and now I'm offering something different again.
This time I only have 3 available (which is half as many as I had of the black ones ...and they all sold out in a few hours!).
The finish on these is a super-smooth bead-blast finish.
This was a bit of an experiment that ended up working very well. The photos really don't do it justice to be honest (the scales of the knife look an ordinary gray colour ...but there is a VERY nice satin texture to them in the hand):
There are only three available (so I'm not going to write one of my long order-page things because I have a feeling they'll sell quick enough).
These are not the ordinary Flixx™ knife. This is the one where the scales are a one-off I made because the blade was slightly larger than it was meant to me. These are not "rejects" or "seconds" (I NEVER sell anything that is not 100% as good as I can make it!).

Large CandyCan™ (Concept)
Curious as to your thoughts on this...
I've just done a 3D model of a larger CandyCan™ I'm thinking about making.
The original CandyCan™ was hugely popular (raising NZD100,000+ on Kickstarter recently) and we're starting to manufacture those now.
But here's the crazy thing:
I had an absolute ton of people asking for a larger CandyCan™ - which I totally understand because the original was designed to be small enough to fit into "that small, square pocket in your jeans".
I may make a few different larger CandyCans™ - and so the concept below is the first one.
As with most things I design I typically put my own personal criteria first ...and, weirdly enough, a lot of others usually find that design works for them.
My personal preference this time is for a CandyCan™ that is twice the size of the original ...BUT, is actually slightly slimmer. The reasoning here is that this larger version will be more pocket and bag friendly because it will be (roughly) 9mm (0.35") thick.
Here are a few 3D renders for you:
I'm thinking the INTERNAL SIZES might be something like:
Length 60mm (2.3")
Width 40mm (1.6")
Depth 6mm (0.24")
Yes, I know, this is pretty slim - but that's the idea! 🙂
Before I go ahead and start machining titanium... do you have any thoughts on this?
