    As discussed in the Grinder Thread here on FC, the TiStash is the 2nd product from 420EDC. We launched the TiChillum 2 years ago out of 3D Printed Titanium and wanted to keep things simple on our 2nd product in terms of machining. The TiStash is a titanium cylinder capped at one end, sealed via an o-ring in the lid.
    • Length: 82.9mm
    • OD: 24.1mm
    • Inside opening: 18.78mm
    • Inside depth: 68mm
    • 6AL4V Series Titanium grade 5
    No photos at this point. We are 6-7 weeks from completion.

    Would having the product name on the tube: TiStash prevent you from buying one? Go totally blank?

    Decided to leave 420EDC off it for sure. This will house a short stem for the Milaana or ≈2 grams of ground herb. Initial units will be available in polished titanium. We'll have some anodized as time progresses in small batches in house and with some other anodizing artists.

    We'll do some in Polycarbonate for 18650s.

    A stash tube in Ti scratches an itch I've had for some time and I would love one in polished Ti. Plain, yet polished Ti is my favourite kind of Ti! I know lotsa customers will only want an anodised option however, colours are cool and add a bit of customisation. I've seen/read of instances of difficulties in anodising tubes where both ends aren't open, but if you'll be working with Fancypants artists then I'm betting they've got it sorted.

    @cannabis.pro You're to be commended for reaching out, asking questions and most of all, listening to your peeps. So many wouldn't even consider leaving their branding/logo off in deference to customers' preference or the social reality that many still deal with, irregardless of legal status. Your efforts with the exclusive Mendo Micro 3-piece and interaction with the community in that thread really highlights your remarkable attitude and made me go check out your website. I suspect I'll be giving you money soon!

    @pxl_jockey thank you for the feedback here and the kind words of encouragement.

    You are correct in the anodizing of tubes, one of the folks who inspired the brand makes pens (damn good ones at that) and he had issues fulfilling my request on some anodize colors with tubing. The initial TiStash variants will be polished Titanium.

    Thanks for checking us out! Get on our email list for the most up to date promotions and news on products like the TiStash.

    Your next product should be a multi piece dynastash. It would be a 2xl garage unit with a hinge on top. The two main garages Could be connected or disconnected via a dovetail.

    The bottom of the stashes would each have an optional herb or concentrates compartment that screws onto the bottom.

    I think the vap stashes might be lined with delrin or something else to protect our fancy stems, bodies or vongs!

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    Due to the potential of any of these caches being used for cannabis storage, Delrin would not be the best plastic to use for cannabis storage. Sure it could be used to store metal, glass, or batteries. Delrin is cheaper to machine/source than Polycarbonate but I'm leaning towards Polycarbonate due to its food storage safety over Delrin.

    Got notification that production started last night. Might have these sooner than expected. Doing a very limited batch with:

    420
    EDC

    U.S.

    Centered on the Tubing. A majority of the batch will be blank.

    We had to delay the start of this project briefly so that we could include a very small run with a special material. There will only be one of these TiStash available to the public in this first batch. Grade 5 Ti64AlV will be the main material used for 99.2% of this first batch. Stay lifted & tuned!

    This is what delayed the start a bit, didn't want to get the machines all setup without having this on hand. [​IMG]

    Wasn't easy to find in the specs we needed but glad to have found something before production had to start. Epic is what we are shooting for on this! Need to get a new torch and some other supplies for these.

    I presume they will be dipped in acid to bring out the Damascus after manufacture?
    Cannot wait to see a pic of the first one!
    Keep on innovating!!

    We won't be dipping these. Torching them is the best way to bring the colors out on the Timascus and gives us the ability to get more than 3 colors with minimal effort. We'll be acid dipping some of the plain Ti for color and have a few other ideas we'll be dropping on them and the TiCD via acid/electric anodize.

    So @cannabis.pro you say only one Timascus Tube will be generally available in the first round. Will there be more of them available to the botched and bungled masses in subsequent batches?

    When will the regular, non-anodised, non-branded TiStashes be available to purchase?
    What is the price point of the plain stashes? When will I be able to hold one in my grubby mitts?
    What will be the approximate price points for other projected treatments?

    These are the hard questions that demand answers! Thank you sir, have a happy holidaze!

    The Timascus is very hard to source and not easy on the wallet. Should we decide to tweak the design in a 2nd batch, we'll possibly do a beta run in Timascus first. We could also do follow up beta runs in Timascus if we can source the material and if there is a demand.

    Ideally they are done in 2 weeks, another week in transit from the machine shop. Throw in another week because I'm not sure if production started right away once the Timascus showed up. So 4 weeks is my projection.

    Plain stash price point will have a MSRP of $69 or $79, probably do an introductory price/FC price of $59.

    Probably a month, maybe less.

    Anodize of plain TiStash for a single color will be $10+
    Specialty anodize via masking, multi color and other methods $20+
    Beadblasted finish could be an option too, not sure of price point extra on that, my guess is $5-$10+.

    Timascus will be $599 but we'll do this first one available to the public for $420 once we torch it.

    Very hard questions indeed. You have a festive holidaze as well!

    Well sir, I threw hardballs, fastballs and a screwball; I did my best and I have to say you knocked them all out of the park! I really like the way you conduct your business here while still remaining a fun-loving enthusiast and member.

    BTW, you won't need to source any Timascus on my account. That's something for the high rollers, of which I am not. One. A high-roller. Not me. Certainly a uniquely luxurious item for the discerning stoner.

    When these drop, let me know so I can make mention of it over in the vapcap thread. I know lots of capheads who love their stashes and can't get enough. Other than losing this TiStash, you'll be able to pass it down to the grandchildren to carry their synthetic neural-weed pods. Which is why I think your titanium stashes approach end-game territory. But that's just, like, my opinion and stuff, man...

    No worries on the Timascus. Just doing it because it is better than paying taxes and eye candy that can melt your wallet. Heirloom grade is where we are going. Thank you for understanding this aspect of our brand. Makes me think I'm not crazy and someone else out there gets it.

    Just wanted to say that this sounds very cool, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product!

    At the risk of giving an unhelpfully specific thought, I'd like something like this but with an OD more like 10mm, which is roughly the size of a doob tube. I have a nice carrying case that holds a doob tube plus grasshopper vape, and if it could be a Ti tube, oh how nice that would be. But I appreciate that may not be a usecase that's popular enough to cater to. ;)

    This, as it stands, is still something I am very interested in, though. Thanks for keeping us updated about your progress with it!

    Thank you for the feedback @snaffle!

    Our TiWarez line is something that we would like to grow and expand upon with success. 10mm is pretty narrow, even a Doob Tube comes in at 15mm OD, but I'm guessing you are looking for a rapid loader for the Grasshopper. This would be very close to a Titanium pen/pencil tubing setup.

    We've played with other makers gear for years in working on coming up with the TiStash. It is something we wanted to move into sooner but didn't want to rush it. I have some cache's between 10-15mm ID and it's not much room for material & working with it freely so we decided we needed to go wider.

    Looking forward to seeing how these turn out as well. Shouldn't be much longer.

    Oh yeah, I mismeasured, 15mm is what I meant. I didn't mean a rapid loader for the Grasshopper (interesting idea in its own right, but given the need to keep the threads near the chamber as clean as possible I don't think anything could beat the funnel from Delta3DStudios (thanks @Ratchett!)).

    But I understand that 15mm may be too hard to work with, that's fine, I would find any amount impossible to work ;)

    Cool that the TiWarez line is something you want to grow in the future, it's just my sort of thing!

    Got an update from the machine shop on these, we are looking at 1-2 weeks before complete. Then a week in transit. Just as I expected, we got bumped back in the que a bit waiting for composite material to arrive. All is going great on the machining side.

    ⬆️ TiStash lid that still needs some finishing steps, but this should give everyone a better idea of what we are working on.
    [​IMG]
    ⬆️ TiStash base that still needs to be deburred.

    Once these are cleaned up they'll go through final finishing steps and engraving on a small portion of the batch.

    I'm really looking forward to torching the Timascus and then doing some electric anodizing work on some others.

    The timuscus looks sweet! I'm a fan of the material. Is the timascus one a stash too? I want a dynastash one!

    We'll have one available in Titanium Damascus once clean it up and torch it. The other will be used for MARKeting. We weren't able to source it from the folks who call it Timascus™ as they didn't have any available in the dimensions we needed at the time. The other supplier we found only had 2 alloy available and luckily we kept searching and found the specs we needed in a 3 alloy rod.

    Price on the one available will be $420 while future iterations will likely be more like $599 or higher when we get to a second batch.
