    This is a magnifying glass I made for a Yeoman SAK that will have all of it's plastic and aluminum parts remade in titanium. Edmund Optics 10x mineral glass lens and titanium bezel.

    Finally got this one finished. The tweezers and toothpick are also titanium. The plastic screwdriver that goes in the corkscrew was replaces with the double ended micro driver from a Leatherman in a piece of titanium carved to fit into the corkscrew.

    That's very cool. The only tool that I might question for titanium is the tweezers, as I have used them, hard at times, and titanium may be a bit soft.

    Was this a personal project, or something that was sold?

    I like that! I have some plans for a "custom" SAK myself.

    You made the liners also out of titanium I presume?

    Kind regards,

    Jos

    Yes, the liners and tweezers are 6Al4V ti so there's no issue with them being too soft. I think they work so much better than the Vic tweezers just by being stiffer and having the precise ground tip.

    This was made on consignment for a little more than a new Glock but I have a laser shop about to cut parts for me so I hope to bring that cost way down.
    Here's some much better pics that the customer took when he received it.
