I still have the un-notched version. Was my first nut tool.

I've got a long tailed cobra, which I bought new, and never used, plus a few pitons. I had a 3/4 inch angle, which I can't find. Hope it turns up.

Hey Clint, I mentioned in the thread about the big block that's just been cut loose from Freerider http://www.supertopo.com/climbing/thread.php?topic_id=1322537&msg=1994542#msg1994542 at 12:34 Nov 25 that I have a souvenir from doing La Escuela in the 70s - a nice and very long 'Lost Arrow' that came from thousands of feet above me and just missed me. I was mistaken (using a sort of generic term) - in fact it was one of these things. It had a notch cut just below the tip for nut removal.

Pretty cool for Dennis and Alan, the guys who made these from the blanks, to post here!
And the original hammer dies - that gets right down to the source.
Thanks for sharing, you guys!

Hey, wow! What a great surprise on a dark, cold, rainy commute home from work.

Thanks so much for posting these most recent pictures. It means an awful lot to me just to be able to look & read & learn. Thanks for taking the time to share.

And thanks for making me smile! :D
