The Blitz Lamp is far-and-away the most popular piece in the Stockpile Store. In a weird twist of fate, it's become a victim of its own success. I use a WWII practice bomb for the body of the lamp, but 70-year-old munitions aren't exactly falling from the sky (anymore). These aren't particularly rare, but it's getting harder to find a bunch of them in one place. My current suppliers are running low, and I've been on the hunt for a new stash.
So what do you do when you're almost out of bombs? You make more. (Note to NSA search engines - made you look!)
Over the last several months, I've been working with Hebert Foundry and Machine in NH on a top secret project: to make more bombs. Like the originals, these are sand-cast, for that awesome textured finish. And like the originals, these are made in the USA.
But why settle for a copy, when I had a chance to improve on the original design? The repros are cast from a zinc-aluminum alloy - brighter, shinier, eco-friendly and 100% rust-free. Their bases are flatter for added stability, and they're cast hollow to save resources. Finally, these new Blitzes will retail for less than half the price of the originals.
I'm teaming up with Uncommon Goods to offer these repros exclusively through their catalog and website, although I'll be able to link to their listing through the Stockpile Store. Until then, you can use my contact form for more info, or to reserve your part of the first production run.
