NOTE: Someone kindly pointed out there is already a tool called the “Hangman” by well-known tool-maker Peter Atwood. I will change the name as I don’t want to overlap …got any ideas on a name for this tool? 🙂
It’s in the tumbler right now…
I’m talking about this prototype I call the “Hangman”:
Like I said — I have a handful in the tumbler just now ‘breaking the edges’ (that’s a “technical term” — which makes me sound more sophisticated than I actually am — for describing the process of giving the corners and edges a nice, subtle roundedness).
I took a picture for you just before I turned the tumbler on:
As you’ve probably noticed…
The main “clip” part of these are straight from the design of the Rabbit Key-holder.
I’m been carrying my Rabbit key-holder with me for many months. My favourite part is the pocket-clipping feature – and so these Hangman clips are basically just an excuse to re-use this concept.
Also, after designing a few multi-feature products (like the Rabbit and ViperFish™) …I wanted to try a single-function concept for a change.
First impression (before tumbling) is …well, it’s got that “x-factor” that I try to make part of anything I make. I also love the subtle “chunky” feel to it.
Once they’ve been tumbled I’ll update you…
