    Nice! Just be aware that they cannot cut Tungsten off in an emergency. I think they're AWESOME though.


    Plus, chick dig scars. :cool:

    With tungsten, what in the world could you possibly get into where it would need to be cut off? I chose tungsten for the durability. I won't be wearing it at work. Too many people got their fingers pulled off or skinned back from rings.

    They don't need to cut them. They just compress them with a vise or tap them with a hammer on an anvil and they snap. It is a safe procedure. They are very hard but that makes them brittle. Bro in law is an ER nurse, it happens all the time.

    I knew a dude back at an old aviation company that I worked at that wore his around his neck for that reason. YMMV. Still a kickass ring, man.

    Isn't Tungsten a very heavy metal? You will definitely feel it a lot more than other rings. Also, I can't stress the importance of a "comfort fit" band....make sure it's confort fit and curved (rounded) on the edges. Looks nice!

    Thanks, man. I'm gonna include this pic I saw in a safety school of what a wedding band will do to you if you work with your hands.

    Check out Sabrina Silver's tungsten bands thru amazon.com.

    They run $30 and shipping was reasonable. We had to send one of ours back and they reshipped fast. The ones we got are 8mm brushed with polished beveled edges and are comfort fit. They ran a little over half a size too big but since we got that straightened out, we *love* them. At least once a day somebody comments on mine.

    It is!(comfort fit, that is) I tried it on in the store, but it was a 10. I had to order a 9.5 since they can't size tungsten carbide. There is a noticeable difference in weight compared to the titanium rings I tried, but it's really not bad at all.



    Awesome! I actually got to see it in the store. It looks even better in person.

    Maybe you're getting titanium and tungsten confused? :dunno:

    Tungsten Carbide can't be cut. At all. It's what they make high end machining dies out of. Not sure about titanium. Can only be cut and polished with diamond.

    Edit: On the Mohs Scale, TC rates a 9, on a scale of 1 to 10. Diamond being 10. Titanium rates a 6.
