EDIT: added an extra pic i found

So as some of you know (probably not that many its been over 5 years) I used to own, and operate a pretty successful Fingerboard Rail company called Grindstone (aka Rackem' Rails on FlatFace).  Shortly after awhile, I lost motivation to keep pressing forward, and sold most of my stock to Mike Schneider. These rails were THE SH*T! in my opinion though, the manufacture I was working with could design absolutely anything out of a sheet of the highest quality metals imaginable. SO, that being said I'm willing to give this another shot, but this time carry the company in a 110% professional manner with no slip ups (as i was 16 then, and 21 now). I will be talking to my old manufacture sometime next week. So if you guys have any ideas for a new company name, or a logo idea hit me up! Like i said, FREE RAIL no charge at all to the person who designs me a sick logo.

attached are some videos/pictures of my old product in action:

Brody Davis strength test:

Brody Davis riding a super old wrestling rail:

NEWER MODELS:













So, what you guys think? Should I give this another shot? The types of steel, and processes we used were hands down of the highest quality possible for finger boarding, you could even skateboard on them!

Please let me know what you think, also here are some company names i wrote down:

GRINDiT
MetalCult
META
GrindSteel
AlphaMetal
DuraSteel
TOPSTEEL (i dig that one)
Lazer Rails

I think Grindstone is the best of those names..

I don't really feel that the list of names you wrote have a skatevibe to them. If you want a new name, you should give it good time, cause having the right name means a lot.


The rails look killer! You could put out some sweet stuff!

Thank you, Mikkel! I'd have to agree, Grindstone does have a pretty catchy tune to it. I just want the freshest start possible, which is why i am considering a company name change. I'm currently designing some new rails, so hopefully something comes to mind!

Bike racks are sick. 

Opening a company is your decision, are you dedicated ? Do you have the time ?  Does your passion outweigh profit ? If yes to all, go for it.

Im not so great with the naming process, its actually my major set back for my company as well.

but i just wanted to say the quality of those rails looks sick and super heavy duty, id definitely ride one.

one gripe i have with some of these pre-fabbed rails is the dimensions are off sometimes as far as length/height ratio and the scaling to the actual size of the fingerboard.

Hey thanks man! I really appreciate that. Yeah I know what you mean all the rails in my last batches were 100% robo cut welded and machine made eliminating the chance for error 110% of the time.

Yeah the stone part was kind of just a play on words. Just like how blackriver isnt a boat company and flatface doesnt perform plastic surgery. Lmaoo

The wrestling rail in the video looks sweet, i'd call them GrindCult rails (mix of MetalCult and GrindSteel)
