    I still wish I bought your Petijean a few years back, I remember talking to you on the Almond about it. Now thats real engineering!
    Thats going back a few years, you have a better memory than me i wish i knew who you are now, shocking memory for names sorry.

    That was some vice though, i still cry sometimes over letting it go especially now they are 700+

    Yes I remember picking up some flies and fly boxes for someone in the shop as well.

    My vice is nothing special but gave me a bit of interest for a while to see if I still had the old skills but your welcome to see it sometime

    Its a good question and I'm not overly sure tbh. Its a simple but well thought out vice and quite functional. But the materials are fairly standard, nothing special.
    I suspect he capitalised on the rotary and 'hand made' aspect at the time. That and the fact people like Ollie Edwards and Dave McPhail were seen to be using them.

    Then throw in the fact that only a small amount were released every year, the prices just kept going up and up.

    So a bit of hype and rarity coupled with a nice looking bit of kit, supply and demand like anything else I suppose. Remember they didnt start out at 2k a vice they are only increasing in price as they become harder to get.

    All I know is that someone who owns one had a look at mine and says it feels exactly like his so I feel I can comment on the functionalty.
    My opinion is that it is nice to use, but then so is my regal copy sprung jaw vice that I bought as a teenager 40yrs ago for 7!
