I just got a pair of solid aluminum Rev styles handles from RS67Man, and they are awesome!

Thanks Walt, will be good to see you tomorrow at the New Year's fly. ;)

I have been asked to produce handles like the set I made for JB. The set I made for John was done as a personal favor, I did not charge any money for them. I am not going to produce them unless Revolution Enterprises wants me to make them for their Pro series kite kits, and are sold only through Revolution. The reason for this is the handles are a Revolution item, and are part of the kite that they sell. I do not want to get in hock for trying to sell something I have no license to. Anyone can make handles for their own personal use, so don't let this stop ya!

my new handles that were made in Thailand, they are 18 kt. gold and the black

You've been 'had' my friend, wot no 24 carat gold that the Thais love to use ;) :)

Looks like a pendant to me,
and the black may be enamel... you see a lot of cloisonne in the Far East that uses metals and enamels :)

sweet... but it is not glittery, or purple :blue_wink:

By the way Ben and Walt, if you manage to get together on the handles thing I would like to express an interest if you need to test the waters of popularity.

Also would be intereseted in findin out if Titainium handles could be produced for a sensible price if enough interest was shown.

Regarding the "pocket series": depends on the size of one's pockets I guess ;)
