Custom iron these days is VERY expensive, simply because it is falling out
of favor. To get to a reasonable price, one has to order many thousands
just to get over the bump caused by the "tooling" charges. It is simply
too hard to beat the massive price adavntage that the common PeeCee
supplies have.

When I worked ar USR, I had access to the parts database, and it would
astound you how much some things cost (and also how cheap other things
are). Basically, unless you are ordering 20000 or more of any piece per
year of any type of custom or semi-custom part, you are going to pay thru
the nose.
