Birth Certificate

This week has been a bit of a roller coaster. When talking to the print shop, it looked like custom print sizing was going to take even longer to resolve. Unfortunately the quoted date of Monday was a bit optimistic. Each day is just waiting for the final piece. Last I talked to the shop, they said it would likely get done by today. So fingers crossed. With that said, it doesn't mean there isn't work being done. I recently got the certificates done which look spectacular. Each one has been cut by hand - and only signed after testing the yoyo. This ensures a better quality control for each shipment. Trying to streamline how everything will pan out has...

Build Your Dream

Last few days has been pretty insane. I have been trying to get the packaging and shirts done with a help of a friend, Dwayne. He runs DreamFactory, a print shop located just outside of Toronto. Believe it or not, each shirt is printed by hand in house by Dwayne. I actually met Dwayne years back when I was building my VTEC Austin Mini. I was looking through Kijiji (Canadian version of Craigslist) for a B18C1 out of an Integra GSR. Of course Dwayne owned one, and after some negotiation I ended up with a rusty car with the motor still in it. I pulled what I needed off the car, parted it, then crushed the shell. The motor is going...

The Nostalgic Sellout

July 1st was Canada day. Usually an explosive day of fireworks and drunkenness. But I had other things on my mind. It was the day that the Luftverk website opened, and customers were free to pre-order the Evora.  It was 8:29pm. I knew in that next minute if all the hard work and sleepless nights paid off. I knew I would have a few buyers - friends, and people who had messaged me about getting one. When 8:30pm rolled around, I opened the store. What happened next blew me away. Years ago, there was a Yoyo store called Yoyonation. Back then, only a handful of new manufactures would release yoyos. When they did, people swarmed to get them. It was chaotic, but...

An Old Friend

Sometimes, friends will just drop out of your life completely. Its not sad - people change. People grow. And that is never a sad thing. I think the last time I explored this little park was with my old friend - lets call her Sasha. No wait, lets call her Sandra. I like Sandra better. Anyway, Its been almost 4 years since the last time I was at this little park. Time sure does fly.  I think the first thing I noticed about this place was the amount of vegetation that grew in the last 4 years. I clearly remember being able to see the ground where I was walking pretty easily back then. Now, there are trees blocking the way. It...

Evora - First Post

I am sitting here trying to make this website happen. I decided to add a blog section to inform people of progress and new stuff I am working on. Its been a lot of work to get up to this point, and I hope people genuinely like the Evora. So many sleepless nights have been spent working on this thing, and I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The aggressive lines and edges really make it unique especially for something made in titanium. As far as I know, it is the first production H-shaped throw made in titanium. The nipple has been pretty controversial in an era of flat hubs. It was a design I have always wanted...
