Finding the perfect gift for a car enthusiast can be tough. It's not like you can drive up in their favourite car and hand them the keys, but what if you could get the next best thing?
Introducing the Silhouette carbon fiber keychain series. This line features some of the greatest automotive icons, at a low cost. These keychains are made to mirror the silhouette of different supercars — hence the name.
The Silhouette series is like our FineLine series but different, and we'll explain how in this article.
Buy the perfect gift and support local
STEVS is a Canadian company. We make all our products by hand in our Vaughan shop. We put a lot of time and effort into making each keychain look and feel like a supercar.
The Silhouette keychains are CNC-machined from our high-performance carbon fiber and epoxy sheets. Yes, we design, develop and make them ourselves because we're master carbon fiber experts with a passion for cars.
Buying a product from us means you're supporting a local business who's only goal is to produce the best carbon fiber accessories and parts. We care about our products and customers and our motivation comes from you.
So if you're looking for a unique gift for that car-loving friend, count on us.
What’s with the lower cost?
Maybe you're familiar with our iconic FineLine keychain series. FineLine is, in our opinion, the best keychain there is. Inspired by supercars, we pay respect to our favourite automotive icons through an impeccable carbon rendition. Complete will all the fine details you'd find on the real car.
It's a piece of art, with intricate lines, an impeccable finish and a workmanship like no other, and the price tag reflects that.
So we wanted to create a new line of keychains, that are just as special, but at a lower cost.
Don't worry, we didn’t sacrifice the quality of our carbon fiber — it’s still the same carbon fiber we’d use on a $1 million car. By implementing design and manufacture changes that affects time, not the overall quality of the product, we’re able to sell this series of keychains at a lower price.
Just like their "older brother" Silhouette keychains are also offered in a gloss or satin surface finish.
What is the difference between the FineLine and the Silhouette series?
- The Silhouettes don’t have intricate and detailed engravings like the FineLine series does
- The Silhouettes are made from a single-sided carbon fiber sheet instead of a double-sided sheet
- The carbon fiber used for the Silhouettes is thinner than the carbon fiber used for the FineLine series
- The Silhouettes are machined with a larger diameter-end mill. This means that the FineLine has more defined contour details than the Silhouettes
- The Silhouettes don’t offer an option for a personalized engraving, but the the FineLines do
We made this new keychain line because we want as many car enthusiasts as possible to enjoy well-manufactured, high-quality carbon fiber products!
Which series should I pick?
That depends on what you're looking for. If you’re interested in getting the finest carbon fiber keychain version of your favourite car, you should choose from the FineLine series — these keychains really are a work of art. If you are looking for a less expensive gift for yourself or loved one, without sacrificing the material performance and manufacture quality, the Silhouette is the perfect choice. There are less details featured in a silhouette keychain, but you can still appreciate and celebrate some of the greatest cars in our time.
