Factory Outlet - Older models and/or slightly blemished steel
Occasionally our product heads have a flaw in the aesthetics and don't make it through our quality control standards. There was an overgrind when training new employees or a blemish in the steel or an issue with the magnets. These are still completely useable tools. But they just don't make it through our high quality control standards for our premium products.
We put a new handle on these blemished heads and give them the same treatment as our other products, fresh grind, polish, sharpening, etc.
