Titanium Hand-Sanitizer (PLUS "Titanium Damascus" Key Holder)
Just TWO things for you today (but they are awesome things).
I'll talk about the Titanium Hand-Sanitizer in just a second - but first...
Titanium Damascus Key-Holder
I machined six of these plates last weekend ...and they all came out REALLY well.
The one in the photo is a good representation of what the rest look like. I have just THREE of them available (and I'll tell you now they're not that cheap compared to the regular CoolKey™ - Titanium Key-Holder version.
I've put a lot of care and attention into these - and it seems to come through. Here's an even closer look:
Oh, and I've not done any "doctoring" of these photos ...this Titanium Damascus we've got really is visually mind-blowing!
Like I said... only three available... they're not that cheap (sorry, but it takes so much raw Titanium Damascus to make these) ...but, by god, are they one-of-a-kind!
Here's the link (scroll to the bottom for them):
CoolKey™ - Titanium Key-Holder
Pocket-Sized Titanium Hand Sanitizer
These are not for sale yet - but hopefully will be soon (somewhat depending on what feedback we receive from this blog post).
Quick note: As I mentioned in the last blog post, although we're making progress catching up on late products/projects ...we still need to continue to make sales to keep the rest of the business going. And this Pocket-Sized Titanium Hand-Sanitizer is one such product.
A tiny bit of backstory:
Usually, for most of our products, we play around with concepts for many months (and often years to be honest) ...but this Pocket Titanium Hand Sanitizer is a little different ...only took a couple of weeks of "playing around".
During that time we went through every possible option we could in terms of how to deliver the liquid/gel. We had simple-ish mechanisms ...complex mechanisms ...and we were even close to making our own version of a soap-dispenser pump (we dismantled one here in the workshop ...and, although fairly common, it's a really clever mechanism).
The problem is that I really wanted to keep this product super-simple and not have a dozen parts (because it would start to cost hundreds of dollars).
Long story short:
After a ton of thought and rejecting every imaginable idea (no matter how "cool" the mechanism was) ...we came upon an idea that is, as far as I can tell, the absolute simplest mechanism possible.
As with most of our designs.. we pretty much have to work our way through lots of different (and complex) solutions to finally arrive an something that is crazy simple. This concept is crazy simple - but it took a long time to get there.
Anyway, here's a video explanation and some photos:
I've not shown the function in the above video - but I can attest to it working really well with both very watery sanitizer as well as thick gels (and anything in between).
Would love to hear any feedback/thoughts/etc. in the comments below - thank you!
