Latest Prototype (Just Made This…)
Here’s a video of the latest prototype I made – yes, it’s still a hand-ground, crude prototype with no proper buttons. Mainly experimenting with the finish.
You’re seeing this video because you signed-up to my “Launch List” (no one else outside of that list is seeing this right now).
I mention in the video this surface finish is likely something I cannot make in production. Well, it can be done, I just don’t want to stand at a polishing machine and do it (hey, at least I’m honest).
One more thing…
When you polish titanium it does not get dull like aluminium – it keeps it’s polish. It will still get micro-scratches if you carry it every day in your pocket or bag.
The reason I know titanium does not lose it’s polish is I did a long-term experiment where I mirror-polished a piece of titanium and left it outside my house in the wind/rain/salty-sea-spray for a year (yes, a year – that’s well over 8500+ hours!). The weather/environment had absolutely no effect on the surface finish during that time.
