Tungsten Carbide Tokens v2

3/13/16

Any interest in a Tungsten carbide token like my Kickstarter with the Billetspin logo on one side and a top related phrase on the other? They would be $25 plus shipping. What about t-shirts? I got some time, let me know if you would be interested!

Lets try this again. PLEASE READ ENTIRE POST:
I am getting some tungsten carbide tokens made with a key ring hole. One side will have the BilletSPIN logo. Add your own poll options on what you would like on the back side. NO CUSTOM ENGRAVING. I will get some made with the top choices. These will be available in a few months.

Ok, how about a little bit larger carbide token with a small hole for a key chain, bottle opener and our logo on one side and top slogan on the other. I would have to get it molded and that is a $5k investment for the mold. I would have to charge more for them compared to the worry token. Probably $70. Thoughts?

Great news! Our tungsten carbide tokens are finally done but need etching. They have a hole in them so you can put a chain or cord through it for carrying. I am going to try to put our logo on one side. What would you like on the other? I should have these in a few weeks for sale!

Contest! Design the backside of this token. It will be laser etched so keep the design basic. 1.25″ in diameter. dont forget the hole. Winner gets a free prototype top from the Indiegogo project. I will pick the winner in a few days. I have to be able to email the design to my etching guy. Not sure what kind of files will work for that but hopefully you do.

Oh Yeah
BilletSPIN Tungsten Carbide tokens. Mirror polished. 1.25″ diameter with .145″ hole. Two versions, one with logo and 5 combined top patterns and the second is completely blank so you could get it laser etched with whatever you want. These will be $30 for the etched and $27 for the blank. We will figure out shipping now. These will be put on the website either today or tomorrow. Limited quantities but if they sell well, we will get more!

This is a great conversation piece because most people in the world have never felt the weight of tungsten carbide. For those that dont know, tungsten carbide is what our cutting tools are made from. It is crazy hard (it cuts steel with ease). I did a kickstarter a while back with these and never had any issues or complaints! Hope you enjoy!

Edit: yes, there will be ones coming without the hole. Not sure what I will have on them though as far as etching but some will be blank

Big news, I started our own Youtube channel. I think it will be a better way to help answer a lot of questions and go through the new designs more thoroughly. Bare with me, this is out of my comfort zone but as I learn the camera and get used to doing them they will improve. I will not be using the old channel I used to post on anymore so please subscribe and lets make it as awesome as it can be!

Here is the link to the first video, I hope you enjoy it!

Navigator Prototype Auction

Auction: Due to the overwhelming requests for a Navigator prototype I am going to do this. One of a kind, the only one, the Navigator prototype. It does not have the dimples on the bezel and the points do NOT line up. It will come with a COA. Auction ends in 3 hours (2:00pm central). $5 minimum bid increments. 5 minute anti-snipe. Shipping is included. Spins great but is not perfect as it has been used. Still a 9 out of 10. Will ship today!

NOTE: I had to redo this because the first time I listed it I accidentally put a Kraken pic in it lol. Sorry guys.
