2015 Argonaut Kraken that just came in for service. Still working great but it needs a little TLC.....Remember Kraken owners, your service cost is a fixed price. No surprises when you get the bill for re-chromed muffler bearings or brake light fluid....See website store for details on the Argonaut Kraken!
I'll post pictures of this one before I return it to the owner.

Is it just the way the picture looks on my phone or is that sort of a bronze or gold color plating? Am I just getting my hopes up for some sort of special edition this year?

Just a wild guess here but I'm thinking the "G" in AKG stands for "gold. "

Unfortunately that escaped me until just after the question was asked. But thank you. And I imagine you are correct. I can’t wait to see the finished product.

There are two of them.....Bodies are done, gold plating the main can label is in the works but there is a lot left up in the air as to the rest of the parts and what will come with them. AKG 1 and AKG 2

Well, I guess that is one way around the chrome plating difficulties :shock: .

Yeah, titanium would cause me to need another. I probably need another anyways. :mrgreen:

I was reading, some kinda fashion magazine, while waiting for the doctor, anyways, according to the article, a man's metals should match for his outfit to be correct :roll: . Well, I did not know I was supposed to have on an outfit. But, Bryan, my favorite dive watch is titanium, my wedding band is titanium, I got a titanium Tekna knife so, to be correctly gentrified I need a titanium Argonaut to match. Oh, well, and titanium D rings and buckle too! James

Source the Ti yokes or DIN connectors from Atomic Aquatics, Ti fasteners readily available, the rest should be a straightforward material substitution!
No post CNC plating requirements... what could possibly go wrong? :shock:

Oh and anodised in five different accent colours to match the rest of your Ti outfit :lol:
